DUBLIN, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s2m3lr/u_s_coated) has announced the addition of the "U.S. Coated Fabrics (Polymer, Rubber And Fabric Backed Wall Coverings) Market - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2012 - 2018" report to their offering.
Coated fabrics include fabrics coated by plastics, rubber, varnish and lacquer among other materials. Application of a coat results in increasing the flexibility, water resistance and durability of the fabric. These fabrics are used in a variety of end-use products such as transportation, manufacturing, construction, automotive and apparel among others. Based on the type of raw material used, coated fabrics can be segmented into three categories - polymer-coated fabrics, rubber-coated fabrics and fabric-backed wall coverings.
Increasing demand for automobiles in the U.S. is one of the primary drivers which are expected to drive the growth of the market over the next few years. In addition, the rising industrial production rate is expected to boost demand for coated fabrics in industrial applications over the forecast period. Furthermore, the recovery of the construction industry after the economic crisis in 2008-09 is expected to contribute to the demand for coated fabrics. However, the availability of substitute products to coated fabrics coupled with rising environmental concerns regarding pollutants emitted from these fabrics are expected to hamper the growth of the market.
Polymer coated fabric was the largest product segment and accounted for over 85% of the market in U.S. in 2011. This segment is expected to grow significantly within the forecast period on account of its increased use in automobiles as air bags and seat covers. In addition, implementation of standardized safety measures for protective clothing in all industrial sectors by regulatory bodies is expected to boost the demand for polymer coated fabrics. Fabric backed wall covering is expected to be the fastest growing segment on account of its increasing use in residential and non-residential structures.
