North America accounted for the largest share in the global low melting fiber market in 2022. In this region, U.S. is the largest consumer of petroleum and its byproducts during distillation process. Moreover, the byproducts of petroleum distillation are used as a raw material for the production of low melting fiber. On the other hand, in Canada there is rise in demand for low melting fiber due to rapid growth of population and urbanization. Moreover, the growing applications of low melting fiber in the construction and textile industries across the region is expected to boost the product demand. These are key factors that are expected to accelerate the global low melting fiber market growth over forecast period.

Global Low Melting Fiber Market- Restraints

 Presence of alternative fibers

There are number of substitutes available for low melting fiber such as wool, cotton, jute, silk, hemp, rayon, nylon, and others. Cotton is one of the natural fibers which is used for making comfortable clothing materials. On the other hand, jute is used in packaging materials and wool is used in clothing fibers for cold climates. Moreover, the natural fibers offers several properties including renewability, biodegradability, environment friendliness, low density, nontoxicity, and others,  and this is limiting  demand for low melting fiber.

Global Low Melting Fiber Market- Trends

Growing awareness about the use of recycled low melting fibers

Growing demand for recycled low melting fibers, owing to increasing awareness about the protection of environment is expected to propel the global low melting fiber market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, the consumer’s preference is shifting towards the more sustainable clothing along with attractive prints and trending designs is one of the key factors to drive the product demand in market.
