Jan 17, 2022/IndustryNewsGlobal/ The unexpected shifts in the global markets because of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 virus have brought many major and minor tremors to industries of all sizes including the Spandex Fiber Market.
It was estimated prior to this unanticipated outbreak that the Spandex Fiber Market is likely to witness an impressive CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. The key driver that is contributing to the demand for spandex fiber is mainly its unmatched physical and chemical qualities, which make it the most favorable choice for fabric manufacturers.
Spandex Fiber is made up of synthetic polymer called polyurethane which has extraordinary stretch ability. By reacting polyester with diisocyanate which contains at least 85% polyurethane, the long chain of polymer is produced. First invented at DuPont's laboratory in 1959, in Virginia, spandex is strong and durable. It transformed the garment industry after its arrival.
Spandex Fiber has different production processes, such as solution dry spinning and solution wet spinning, that are used in various end-use industries, such as textile, medical & healthcare, and others.
This report studies the market covering a period of 12 years of trend and forecast. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
