US Coated Fabrics Market Demand to Grow 3.8% Annually to 2018

​Demand for Coated Fabrics in the US is projected to advance 3.8 percent per year to 725 million square yards in 2018, acceleration from sluggish gains posted during the 2008 to 2013 period. Rebounding construction expenditures will provide opportunities for coated fabrics used in products that are closely tied to building activity, such as wall coverings, furniture, and awnings and canopies. In value terms, demand for coated fabrics is forecast to increase five percent per year to $4 billion in 2018, benefiting from acceleration in area demand as well as moderate price increases. However, pricing gains will be limited due to increased competition from lower cost imports. Get a sample copy of this report @ http://www.rnrmarketresearch.com/contacts/request-sample?rname=197275 The largest market for coated fabrics in 2013 was motor vehicles, with 30 percent of the total, benefiting from the large number of light vehicles that are produced in the US each year. Going forward, growth will accelerate from a high 2013 base that reflects a recovery in vehicle production. Still, advances will be propelled by the increased incorporation of polyvinyl-coated and polyurethane coated fabrics in upholstery and interior trim in light vehicles. In these applications, coated fabrics are aided by continued improvements in appearance and feel, placing further competitive pressures on alternative materials. Gains will also be promoted by a higher number of airbags per light truck and van through the forecast period. Silicone-coated fabrics are typically used in the manufacture of airbags.
