Recent Developments in Rubber Coated Fabric Market Industry

  1. In November 2022, Trelleborg Engineered Coated Fabrics focuses on innovation in healthcare & medical textiles. One of its recent product launches was the Dartex Zoned Coatings fabric. The fabric allows different combinations of stretch properties across its surface without changing the textile. For example, patients could benefit from a breathable center area for skin contact purposes, while clinicians could benefit from a tougher edge for durability.
  2. In December 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Saint-Gobain developed the ONESuit ProTech, a protective suit designed to help first responders and medical professionals stay safe while treating patients with highly contagious diseases.
  3. In May 2020, Continental AG innovated timing belts which are used in wind turbines in place of gearboxes. The company has equipped the wind turbines made by Chinese manufacturer Xinjiang Goldwind Science and Technology with drive belts. Continental engineers used an optimal combination of two tried-and-tested timing belt technologies to develop these belts.

Based on type
, the synthetic rubber coated fabric was the largest segment in 2022.  This growth can be attributed to the ability to customize synthetic rubber coatings to match specific performance needs. Manufacturers can modify the composition and attributes of synthetic rubber coatings to improve qualities including flexibility, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, and weather resistance.

Based on application
, the protective suits & gloves is estimated to grow at the highest rate during 2023 to 2028, in terms of volume. In a number of industries, the use of the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) is required by strict occupational safety requirements and standards. Rubber coated protective clothing such as suits and gloves offer protection from occupational threats such as chemicals and biological agents. The need for rubber coated fabric in the creation of protective suits and gloves is driven by compliance with these rules.

Based on end-use
, the transportation & watercraft segment is projected to be the largest market during 2023 to 2028, by value.  Fabric that has been rubber coated is good at sealing and waterproofing. Rubber coated fabric is used in transportation applications such as truck tarps, vehicle wraps and cargo containment to assist shield the cargo from moisture, dirt and other outside elements. Rubber coated fabric is used for boat covers, sailcloth, inflatable structures, and other parts that need to be waterproof and airtight in watercraft applications. Such uses further propel market growth of this segment.

Based on region
, Middle East & Africa is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during 2023 to 2028, in terms of value. With the creation of manufacturing facilities and industrial zones, the MEA region is rapidly industrializing. Conveyor belts, seals, gaskets, and protective covers are just a few industrial uses for rubber coated fabric. Thus, rubber coated fabric is in higher demand due to the expansion of industrial sectors in the MEA region.
