Spandex, elastane or lycra is an elastic synthetic fiber. It contains a combination of long chain polglycol, short chain diisocynate, and minimum 85% of polyurethane. Stabilizers and colorants are added to improve quality and enhance appearance of spandex. Spandex offers superior strength, weight, and versatility as compared to rubber. They have high elasticity and can be stretched 500% of their length. It is mainly used in fabrics due to its properties such as ability to be stretched, softness, smoothness, lightweight, easy dyeing, abrasion resistant, resistant to detergent, resistant to body oils and perspiration, and compatible with other materials and fibers. It is commonly used in textile and clothing industry and healthcare industry. Spandex is used in sportswear, active wear, casual clothing, under garments, home furnishings, diapers, bandages, and compression stocking and hoses.
Increasing use of spandex in healthcare and textile industry, increasing penetration in other industries such as automobiles, aviation and energy, and the launch of ecofriendly and bio-based spandex are the major market drivers of spandex market. Development of alternatives such as natural latex is the major threat to this market. However, many market players are investing significantly in research and development to improve characteristics of spandex such as elasticity, for further growth of spandex market.
