Industry Insights

The global netted fabrics market size was valued at USD 262.3 million in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2019 to 2025.  Netted fabrics are amongst the most trending styles of material in the world, either processed from natural fibers such as silk and cotton or synthetic fibers such as polyester and nylon. The global market is expanding rapidly even in the unorganized sectors due to factors such as growing preference for durable and cozy apparel across the globe for field sports, along with changing trends in the fashion industry.

Netted fabrics include mesh fabrics that are loosely knitted or woven fibers allowing breathability and stretch and hence are used to manufacture sports clothing having fast drying property. For instance, U.K.’s innovative sportswear brand, Superdry launched its exclusive store in Delhi, India in the athleisure apparel segment, seeing the growing prospects for the sports industry in the coming decade.

North America netted fabrics Market

Celebrities and bloggers across the globe have been featured over social media sites wearing dresses and apparels such as stockings and scarfs made up of net fabric. Netting is the current fashion trend featured on various platforms i.e., from Paris to London for Spring 2019 collection.

Based on material, polyester held the maximum share of 37.9% in 2018. Booming automotive industry across all regions is helping the global market to grow as polyester mesh is popularly used to manufacture seat covers as it enables permeability of air. For instance, Chinese suppliers such as SeatCoverPlus provide customized seat covers with breathable and comfortable mesh fabric, thereby providing a sweat-proof yet contemporary look to the interiors of a car.

Growing usage of fishnet, which is a coarse and open-mesh construction designed by knotting the fibers together, in apparels such as shoes, hosiery, bodysuits, body stockings and other products such as tents, backpacks, and fishing nets. For instance, Adidas created polyester sneakers from ocean waste where the upper layer of the shoes is made up of polyester netted fabric and recycled plastic, while the base utilizes other sustainable materials.

Decrease in the use of netted fabric in general apparel is expected to be a major constraint in the growth of the market due to high raw material costs and continuous change in fashion trends across the globe. Due to increasing penetration of 98% organic cotton with a minor blend of elastane taking over the apparel market, especially by premium brands like H&M, Zara, and Marks & Spencer’s, is likely to be a threat to the global market over the forecast period.

Due to a higher penetration level of upgrading fashion trends in regions such as APAC and Europe, consumption of netted fabrics in sportswear and apparels will be inexpensive in order to provide increased affordability for consumers of all socio-economic groups. Companies such as Roadster and HRX have made sportswear and athleisure wear considerably cheaper and popular amongst online shopping population. Countries such as India, China, and Brazil are taking more initiatives in sports, which, in turn, is leading to higher sales of sportswear and shoes in their respective regions.

Material Insights

Nylon is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period owing a wide availability of fabric and extensive usage in production of backpacks, tents, and mosquito and fishing nets as the material carries high tensile strength and durability. For instance, as most of the manufacturers and suppliers are in the unorganized sector thus, companies such as American Tourister, Decathlon, and Skybags use material from these sources to manufacture backpacks, shoes, and other accessories on a large scale with standard measurements.

Nylon is also utilized to manufacture apparels such as tights and running shorts for athletes due to its high elasticity and low-moisture absorbing attributes. Widespread application of this material across clothing and utility categories is expected to augment the growth of the segment in the global market.

Other materials are expected to account for a share of 28.6% till the end of 2025. They include natural fabrics such as silk and cotton, along with dacron. Dacron is a popular fiber used in medical field such as band aids and crepe bandages. Due to its high tensile strength, it is often used to manufacture bulletproof vests, rope, ship sails, and light sporting equipment.

British wedding gown designer, Suzanne Neville, uses a lot of cotton netting fabric to make laces, along with silk tulle, as the main fabric for majority of her designer wedding gowns. As these gowns have elaborate detailing on luxurious fabric hence costs around USD 3,922. Growing application of netted designs on cotton fabric is expected to contribute to the growth of the global market.

Product Insights

Tulle emerged as a leading product category in 2018, accounting for a share of 38.1%. It is the most prominent knitted material made of very fine net fabric, having a vast application in the clothing sector. It is exclusively used to make soft net fabric for ruffles, dresses, overskirts, and trims including wedding veils.

Fishnet is a slightly-rough netting variety usually made up of synthetic fibers that help in adding a considerable amount of elasticity for more stretchiness. Apart from tent and fishing nets, such product is used to make stockings, hosiery, bodysuits, and other stretchable clothing. For instance, a number of brands such as Victoria Secrets and H&M use fishnet fabric to make bodysuits and beachwear for women of all ages.

Other products include bobbinet and filet net usually manufactured in European countries such as U.K. and France. A good quality bobbinet is often expensive as it is a thin net fabric, made in the form of a lace. Curtains, bridal wear, lingerie, and haute couture fashion are a few examples where bobbinet is commonly used.  The net fabric is used as a base cloth on which intricate detailing and embroidery is done. For instance, Mikaella Bridal and Allure Bridals are a few premier designers for wedding gowns that extensively use bobbinet in their wedding collection couture.

Application Insights

The clothing application segment is expected to register a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period. Nowadays, contemporary trends are evolving in the fashion industry. As a result, designers are more inclined towards using knitted/woven fabrics such as netting to design dresses and other accessories that make people accompany the ongoing trend. This has led to an increased demand for netted fabric clothing.

Another prominent application fueling the market growth is the use of lightweight bullet proof jackets in the defense and security sector. Additionally, shifting inclination towards durable and comfortable apparel due to inflated demand for sportswear around the globe is boosting the market growth. For instance, Nike, Adidas, and Puma are manufacturing shoes and sportswear for all genders using mesh fabric to increase level of complacency and resilience.

Regional Insights

In terms of value, the netted fabrics market Asia Pacific is expected to register a CAGR of 4.5% from 2019 to 2025. The market demand is expected to boost, especially for the clothing segment, due to rise in designer brands such as Anita Dongre, Sabyasachi, and Needledust. The region is expected to witness the fastest growth in the next few years due to presence of a substantial number of manufacturers, along with growing population.

North America held the largest share of 31.5% in 2018. High disposable income of consumers, rising demand for laundry bags and luggage dividers, coupled with increasing number of manufacturers in the curtain and shoes industry are driving the demand for netted fabric in this region. For instance, D’Decor released its new category of blinds, curtains, and drapes for European styled home in India with net being the main fabric style.

Middle East and Africa is expected to register a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period. Countries such as Dubai and Saudi Arabia are the leading consumers of netted fabrics in the world due to a large Muslim women population in this region, thereby driving the demand for netted hijabs. Additionally, a larger population is getting involved in various sports, which, in turn, is leading to more consumption of sportswear, aiding higher sales of netted fabric clothes in this region. For instance, Nike became the first company in itself to manufacture pro hijab, which is a modest sportswear for Muslim women across the globe.
