Global Acrylic Fibers Market Insights

The Global Acrylic Fibers Market was valued at USD 3,413.7 Million in 2020 and is expected to rise at CAGR of 4.3% from 2021-2026 to become USD 4,331.3 Million by 2026. Increasing per capita income with continuously changing fashion trends is driving the fibers market. There has also been continuous technological advancement which is helping in bringing down the cost and ultimately increasing the growth of the market.

The raw materials used to manufacture acrylic fibers include comonomers, DMF acrylonitrile, and additives. Important raw material for production of acrylic fiber is Acrylonitrile, which is about 85% of the acrylonitrile units by weight. Acrylic fiber is made up of a comonomer and Acrylonitrile. Comonomer helps in improving the textile processability and dyeability. Acrylic fibers are made with two systems: dry spinning and wet spinning.

Acrylic fibers in cloth provides better dimensional stability and also make them easy to wash. The acrylic fibers are lightweight, soft, and warm, with a wool-like touch. Therefore their demand is increasing in textile industry. Further, the acrylic fibers has numerous application in Household Textiles, outdoor uses and industrial purposes.

COVID-19 Analysis of Global Acrylic Fibers Market

Manufacturing is one of the worst affected industry in covid crisis. This maybe because of its complex supply chains and labor intensiveness. Outsourcing of the work that was done to reduce costs and to increase efficiency have made manufacturing very vulnerable. Lockdown across the world has added more to the problem.

Asia is the biggest producer of the acrylic fiber and it was also the one which had to face higher impact in the sale and manufacturing of the acrylic fibers. Major producers of acrylic fibers such as China and India were under the lockdown and there was a decline in the demand of the acrylic fiber in the market.

Form Segment Analysis

Colored/Pigmented is the most preferred component used in Acrylic Fibers. The colored segment holds 75% share of total acrylic fiber market and dominates the market. Acrylic fibers are often colored using cationic and dispersion dyes. Dispersion dyes: color the fibers in the same way as polyester fibers are dyed using disperse dyes. By forming “ionic bonds,” cationic dyes bind to anionic spots in the fiber.

Cationic dyes are more vivid of the two colors when used on acrylic. Cotton dyeing has been dominated by reactive dyes over the past four decades. Different types of reactive dyestuff were developed as a result of research. This research looked at the potential of colorings acrylic materials with reactive dyes. Because the acrylic fiber lacks reactive groups, the companies attempted to repair it mechanically by using “dye fixing agents.”

Fastness, color strength (K/S) value, and reflectance values are all evaluated on the dyed fibers. Cotton is often dyed with reactive dyes for comparative studies. When acrylic and cotton colored with reactive dyes are examined, the acrylic material shows promising results.
