Overall, the poly-cotton fabric (PCF) market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years, driven by the increasing demand for breathable, durable, and cost-effective clothing and home textiles.
Traditionally, PCF is supposed to be a product blending typically natural cotton and synthetic polyester and can have a harmonious blend of something as a ballpark 65% cotton & 35% polyester albeit, there is no such sacrosanct & the mix is supposed to keep changing for varied types of the product spectrum.
While there are some drawbacks to using poly cotton, such as its slippery texture and moisture absorption, their benefits outweigh these drawbacks for many consumers.
North America currently dominates the market, but Asia-Pacific and Europe are expected to experience healthy growth due to the rising demand for body-fit clothing and textiles. Emerging markets in the Middle East and Africa, particularly in UAE, Kuwait, and Turkey, are expected to contribute to the growth of the poly cotton fabric market as well, particularly in the sportswear and activewear sectors.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the global economy, and the poly-cotton fabric market is no exception.
The first six months of 2020 saw a significant slowdown in manufacturing, and it is expected to take some time for the market to fully recover. Nonetheless, as the trend toward comfortable and affordable clothing continues, the poly-cotton fabric market is likely to continue to grow in the coming years.
