Report Highlights

Polyvinyl Alcohol Fibers Market - Overview

Polyvinyl alcohol fibers are manufactured from polyvinyl alcohol resins. These were developed in Japan and were first commercialized by Kuraray Co. Ltd. Polyvinyl alcohol fibers were developed for usage in textiles, fabrics, and clothing applications. These fibers are popular in Asia by the name of Vinylon. Polyvinyl alcohol fibers are also used in cement additives, nonwovens, and other applications such as ropes, tire cords, and fishing nets. In terms of production, Japan-based Kuraray Co. Ltd dominates the market. Production of polyvinyl alcohol fibers is concentrated in China and Japan. Many China-based players operate in the polyvinyl alcohol fibers market.

Based on product, the global polyvinyl alcohol fibers market has been bifurcated into filaments and staples. Staples are available in the form of short cut strands and discontinuous fibers. Stapes is the dominant segment of the polyvinyl alcohol fibers market. It is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Staple fibers are used in applications such as cement additives, textiles, and nonwoven materials. They can also be twisted to form yarns. Staple fibers are employed as cement additives for reinforcing cement.

In terms of application, the global polyvinyl alcohol fibers market has been segmented into cement additives, textiles, nonwovens, and others (including fishing nets, tire cords, and ropes). The cement additives segment accounted for the leading share of the global polyvinyl alcohol fibers market in 2017. The segment is estimated to expand rapidly during the forecast period. Polyvinyl alcohol fibers are used as reinforcing materials in fiber concrete and widely used as substitutes for asbestos, which are detrimental to human health. Textiles is another significant consumer of polyvinyl alcohol fibers. The segment is expected to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period.

Based on region, the global polyvinyl alcohol fibers market has been classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. In terms of value and volume, Asia Pacific was the leading region of the global polyvinyl alcohol fibers market in 2017. The region is also the major producer of polyvinyl alcohol globally. These fibers were first developed in Asia Pacific and have long been used in textile manufacturing as binder fibers. In terms of demand, Europe and North America are other significant consumers of polyvinyl alcohol. The polyvinyl alcohol fibers market in North America and Europe is projected to expand at a sluggish to moderate pace during the forecast period. Demand for polyvinyl alcohol fibers in these regions is anticipated to rise due to the increasing usage of these fibers as substitute for asbestos in cement additive applications. Demand for polyvinyl alcohol fibers is estimated to increase significantly in Middle East & Africa and Latin America in the near future. These two regions accounted for small share of the global polyvinyl alcohol fibers market in terms of demand in 2017. However, they are projected to create lucrative opportunities for manufacturers of polyvinyl alcohol fibers in the next few years.
