For instance, in December 2022, TORAY CHEMICAL KOREA INC., declared that the company would sell nylon 6, which is a chemically recycled fiber (N6CR) yarns and textile, among other products, in Japan. This fiber is used in several applications such as ropes, fishing nets, automotive parts, carpets, and others. TORAY CHEMICAL KOREA INC. is one of manufacturers of polyester fibers, and other related products. Moreover, this company manufactures and sells polyester staple fibers, polyester filaments, special chips, and other textiles products.
Definition: - Low melting fiber is produced by bi-component spinning of modified polyester and ordinary polyester. This fiber can be melted at low temperature is ranging between 110℃ to 200℃. Low melting fiber offers excellent bonding properties, thus is used with other fibers
Low melting fiber is referred as a bi-component fiber which has strong bonding properties. The low melting fiber is used in the spinning of durable yarns. Moreover, this fiber is used as excellent insulating material in automotive and construction industry, due to its intricate structure. Furthermore, this fiber is blended with solid recycled material or solid polyester fibers, which is further used for the car molding. The low melting fiber provides easy bonding and high elasticity, and thus is used for the production of interior parts of car, mattress, medical goods, among others.
Soaring demand for low melting fiber owing to its different benefits
The low melting fiber offers various benefits such as low melting point, durability, and high bonding strength. Moreover, it is blended with other types of fibers and is used to manufacture padding, interlining, and high quality mattress. Furthermore, it is used to manufacture sanitary and medical products. Thus, different benefits of low melting fiber is likely to boost the product demand across the globe.
Rising demand for low melting fiber in the automotive industry
Low melting fiber is used in the automotive materials including ceiling material, engine hoof, and others. Moreover, low melting fiber has an improved mixing properties, high resiliency, and outstanding bonding, which further proliferates the product demand. Furthermore, low melting fiber has a wide range of applications such as in car door trims, headliners, and others, and this is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities across the global market players.
Fluctuating raw material prices hampering the market growth
The volatile prices of petroleum is likely to vary the raw material prices, this is further limiting the global low melting fiber market growth. Moreover, low melting fiber is not biodegradable as compared to natural fibers such as cotton, silk, hemp, and wool, among others. Furthermore, the lifespan of fibers has reduced, resulting in discarding non-woven low melting fiber, as litters, in the landfills. Owing to this, there are several environmental issues occurred which are hindering the product demand. Nevertheless, the growing demand for recyclable low melting fiber is projected to accelerate the market growth during the forecast period.
