Blended fibers market had first come to evolve with the idea of ‘blending’ fibers to yield a fabric with unique properties that is much more comfortable than the original and is less taxing to care for. In this regard, a blend of cotton and polyester is one such fabric that has gained mass prominence in this business space. In 2016, cotton/polyester based blended fibers industry size was valued at USD 7 billion. It is noteworthy to mention that cotton is a natural fiber that is comfortable to wear but wrinkles easily. On the other hand, polyester is a synthetic fiber that is not very comfortable to wear but when mixed with cotton keeps the fabric from wrinkling. Blended fibers industry outlook thus depends on the identifying a balanced amalgamation of fibers that complement each other to produce the perfect fabric. A nylon/wool blend is another popular fabric that drives blended fibers market share, as nylon is resilient while wool adds to the warmth and softness of the garment. This blend is deemed perfect for winter wear apparels owing to its enhanced durability and quick-drying quality, thus marking significance in blended fibers market.

With the evolving fashion industry and the rising proportion of fashion consciousness consumers, it is important for the apparel industry to delve deeper in blended fibers market to brainstorm new mixed fabrics that will lend a certain charm and appeal to an ordinary piece of clothing. For instance, a draped cardigan made of a warm fabric like Merino can give the warmth of a cardigan but will not drape as beautifully as required. If the same cardigan is made of viscose it may be draped beautifully but will miss out on providing warmth. Ultimately, if a blended fabric like Merino Modal is used, i.e., 60% Merino and 40% Modal, the cardigan will have a beautiful drape while being essentially warm. Driven by appealing challenges such as the aforementioned, blended fibers market share from apparel applications is estimated to witness a CAGR of 3% over 2017-2024.

The home furnishing arena is another lucrative end-use domain of this business vertical. In 2016, 20% of the market valuation was attributed to the home furnishing industry. Rising urbanization, expanding real estate and easy access to home décor items made available through online portals like Amazon, Alibaba and eBay have thus provided a lucrative boost to the home furnishing domain, inherently fueling blended fibers market size.

Asia Pacific is one of pivotal regional markets for blended fibers industry. In fact, APAC market is forecast to surpass 9 billion tons by 2024, driven by the fact that several countries like China, India, Indonesia and Taiwan have expanded their apparel and home décor export base with a surge in demand of handcrafted products and government encouragement campaigns to boost indigenous production. Blended fibers industry has also been expanding in North America – estimates claim the continent to have contributed to 20% of the overall industry share in 2016. The introduction of nanotechnology as well as growing demands for new fabrics in the apparel and home furnishing industries has fueled North America industry trends.

The surging demand for better textile products with enhanced durability and a rather appealing visual appearance will drive blended fibers market. Blending expensive fibers with inexpensive ones offsets the production cost of the overall fabric as well, thus making the fabric more affordable and reliable. Growing economies comprising highly an urbanized, millennial population with disposable incomes will lead to a massive growth in the home furnishing and apparel sectors, thus directly stimulating blended fibers market size.
