Posted On Apr, 29, 2020

The rising disposable income, urbanization, and changing lifestyle in developing economies, including China, India, and Mexico, are expected to increase the demand for branded clothing products. Furthermore, new product launches including Levi's 505 jeans in developed markets, such as the U.S., are expected to remain as one of the favorable factors for the textiles industry over the forecast period.

Textiles are used for the construction of buildings, house structures, dams, tunnels, wall reinforcement, facades, hose wrap, concrete wraps, waterproof membranes, thermal & sound insulation, sewer, and pipe linings. The increasing infrastructure spending in China, India, and Mexico, as a result of government support is expected to play a key role in increasing the usage of home fabric products over the next nine years.

Agencies including OSHA, NIOSH, and NFPA have enforced mandate policies for all manufacturing sectors to maintain worker’s safety in shop floors and commercial spaces. This trend is expected to play a crucial role in increasing the importance of personal protective clothing, which is expected to increase the market share over the forecast period.
