The global staple fibers market was valued at $161,591 million in 2016, and is projected to reach $206,919 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2017 to 2023. A staple fiber is a synthetic fiber exclusively encompassing a polyester. It is made from PTA or PET sheets or from recycled PET bottle flakes. Staple fiber made from PTA or PET is called as Virgin staple fiber whereas when made from recycled PET bottle flakes, it is known as recycled staple fiber. Staple fiber has arose as the fastest growing fiber amongst all types of fibers. Staple fibers are widely used in automotive, textile and furniture industries. Staple can be defined as a fiber of a standardized length of any composition which can be drawn into yarn. Staple fibers can be natural or synthetic. Natural fibers including wool or cotton have a wide range of lengths in each sample, so the staple length is an average. For synthetic fibers which is cut to a certain length, the staple length is the same for every fiber in the whole group. Globally, increasing demand for hygiene products and textiles is anticipated to drive the demand for staple fibers during the forecast period.

Staple fibers are a major uptake in home furnishings since they are utilized as a filling material in sofas, pillows and soft toys. Staple fibers provide resilience and firmness. Factors such as increasing demand for garments and apparels coupled with rising adoption of viscose fabrics due to vagueness in cotton prices are anticipated to boost the market growth. Moreover, rapid urbanization, increasing commercial and residential construction activities, as well as increasing spending capabilities of the middle class population group especially in the densely populated emerging economies such as China and India are some other key aspects driving the growth of the global staple fibers market. Moreover, on account of their durability and cost effectiveness, staple fibers are finding extensive applications in car fabrics. Thus, rapid growth of the global automotive industry is anticipated to drive the global staple fiber market over the forecast period. However, increasing competition from alternatives such as synthetic fibers coupled with retaliatory tariff on viscose may hamper the market growth. Although, increasing usage of cellulose in healthcare is expected to offer numerous opportunities for the growth of the global staple fibers market.
