By Source – Segment Analysis

Chemical segment held a significant share in textile yarn market in 2019. The chemical source segment covers polyester, nylon, viscose, and acrylic textile yarn and holds the largest market share in the global textile yarn market. Production of textiles consists of a long multistep chain involving a large number of chemically heterogeneous compounds. Polyester is the most used and most preferred fiber in the textiles industry due to its better physical properties, lower price, versatility, and recyclability, which offer a completely unique set of benefits unmatched by any other natural or synthetic fibers.

By Type – Segment Analysis

Artificial segment held a significant share in textile yarn market in 2019. Nylon is a polymer with very long, heavy molecules made up of small endlessly repeating segments of atoms that can be molded into any product or drawn into fibers for making fabrics. It is estimated that production growth will continue and will reach 114,000 tons of nylon 6 fiber while nylon 6,6 will remain steady at around 2,000 tons till 2020. Viscose is the fastest growing yarn across the globe and has found its application in apparel industry in several places as a substitute for polyester. Silk is the fastest-growing natural yarn segment of textile yarn market, particularly in developing Asian economies due to the extensive fabric production in these countries. Natural fibers are little elastic and extremely breathable. Cotton is the most common plant fiber, while synthetic fibers come in the three forms such as a filament, staple, and tow. Filament and spun are basic types of the textile yarn. The artificial textile yarn products are likely to face stiff competition from natural textile yarn such as hemp and silk yarn, as these segments have been fast growing owing to the demand for hemp in industrial uses and silk for fabric. Cotton and wool textile yarn have persistently been threats to this segment.

By Application – Segment Analysis

Apparel segment held a significant share in textile yarn market in 2019 growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Polyester is widely used in the apparel segment of textile yarn. This is mainly attributed to the exceptional characteristics of the fiber, which includes quick drying, high durability, excellent elasticity, high wrinkle resistance, lightweight and high shape retention. These features find application in fashion industry where the clothing and apparel require wrinkle free and fade resistant properties.
Most positive coronavirus news currently comes from China. CCCT, the Chinese Textile and Apparel chamber of commerce, reports a positive trend in the resumption of operations in textile and apparel sectors.
