“Competitors are belligerent when it comes to offering alternate products that are based on novel technologies and processes. Pricing and performance are the imperative decision-making factors”
Key growth factors include an increase in demand for coated fabrics in the automotive, industrial, medical, and packaging sectors. Vendors providing solutions to coated fabrics cater to individualistic requirements of end-users. R&D in the area is focused on developing newer products with specialized functionalities. The automotive sector is anticipated to be leading consumer of coated fabrics market during the forecast period. This expectancy from the automotive sector will be driven by this sector's biggest challenge of overall weight reduction.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global coated fabrics market is fragmented with the presence of several vendors. Many regional vendors are present in the market, especially in emerging regions such as APAC. Growing industrialization in developing regions has spurred the entry and growth of domestic vendors that often provide strong competition to the global vendors because of better customer relationships.
“Competitors are belligerent when it comes to offering alternate products that are based on novel technologies and processes. Pricing and performance are the imperative decision-making factors,” says Swapnil Tejveer Sharma, a lead textile, fiber, and composites analyst from Technavio.
Vendors compete based on quality, innovation, price, and performance, and customer centrism. Many vendors also provide customized manufacturing services. However, buyers of coated fabrics in many developed and emerging regions differ in their opinion about the importance of these factors.
