Global Metal Fiber Market Information- by Type (Nickel, Aluminum, Copper, Gold, Silver, and Others) by Application (Filtration, ESD/EMI Protection, Hot Glass Manipulation, Heating, or Other Specialties) by End User (Automotive, Textiles, Plastic, Glass, and Others) and by Region – Forecast till 2023
Metal Fibers are highly favored for its alluring features such as conducts heat well, is ductile and malleable, possess high density, is shiny, chemically reactive and helps to reduce static. Owing to its noteworthy characteristics, Metal Fibers are widely used for adding decoration, in carpets and provide garments with new characteristics. It is manufactured using two processes- metalizing and laminating. In the former, it is heated into vapor and then are deposited into polyester films and at very high temperatures. In the latter a lamination covering made of polyester or acetate film is offered on top of the metal filament.
The Metal Fibers especially in the textile industry offers am aesthetic appeal to apparels knitted out from the metallic fibers. Its end uses include but is not limited to carpets for reducing static electricity, communication lines such as cable TV lines and telephone, survival clothing and cold weather, lace, trimmings, military regalia, knitting, braids, embroidery, evening and party wear, brocade fabrics and lame, upholstery and more.
There are a couple of factors that is driving the growth of the Metal Fiber Market. Some of the market trends and factors in this market as per an analysis conducted by Market Research Future (MRFR) include increasing requirement to stop equipment failure, the rising demand for Metal Fiber in end-use industries such as electrical and electronics industry, defense and aerospace, and resistance to high temperature.
