In the context of the region, Asia Pacific is expected to contribute a significant share to the growth of the acrylic fibers market. The growing large presence of apparel and furnishing retail networks specifically in China and India coupled with the growing customer preference towards evolving fashion industry due to rising disposable income is projected to accelerate the market growth in the Asia Pacific region.

Market Dynamics:

Acrylic fibers are referred to as flexible and soft polymers used for the production of lightweight and quality yarns. Such properties closely resemble those of wool, and hence the most common use of acrylics in apparel and carpets is as a wool replacement—for example, in knitwear such as sweaters and socks. Acrylic fibers are also used as precursors for the production of carbon and graphite fibers, as replacements for asbestos in cement, and in industrial filters and battery separators.

Driver:

The large demand for acrylic fibers in the apparels industry due to the properties such as large availability in vibrant colors, subdued tones, and multi-color dyes coupled with the surging sales of clothes is the major driving factor that fuels the growth of the acrylic fibers market statistics during the forecast period. Furthermore, the surging fashion trends among the population also accelerate the market growth during the forecast period owing to the rising disposable income and large penetration of e-commerce.

Restraint:

The high costs of acrylic fiber restrict market growth owing to the fluctuations in the prices of raw materials such as acrylonitrile, DMF, comonomers, and additives. Additionally, the easy availability of alternatives such as polyester, polyamide, nylon, and polypropylene and stringent regulations in the production of acrylic fibers due to the potential health risks such as the cyanide poisoning caused due to the inhalation of polyacrylonitrile also hamper the industry growth during the forecast period.

Opportunity:

The rising expenditures by major market players to support the surging demand for apparel among the population is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth owing to the augmentation of global production capacities. Also, the scope of fostering technological innovations in the sustainable production of the fibers is estimated to create profitable opportunities for the firms to explore the untapped areas in terms of the advancements such as flame-retardant, weather-resistant, and anti-microbial acrylic fiber.

COVID-19 Impact:

The acrylic fibers market has been severely impacted during the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic in multiple regions around the world. The factors such as reduced manufacturing operations due to disrupted supply chains of the raw materials, coupled with the strict government restrictions in logistics led to the economic slowdown specifically in the initial phases of COVID-19 hampered the market growth. However, the situation has stabilized and as a result, it is evaluated that the overall impact of COVID-19 on the industry is moderate. Post-COVID-19, the market growth experienced a positive shift due to the increased emphasis on business expansions especially in the textile and apparel industry in India and China.
