Market Overview

The Global Weaving Machinery Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% over the forecast period of 2022-2027.

The panic caused by the COVID-19 outbreak has brought the demand for textile products both abroad and domestically to a halt. All textile-related factories are closed as a result of the lockdown.

Owing to the increasing demand for knitted apparel in a number of applications, including sportswear, casual wear, winter wear, protective wear, etc., the global market for industrial knitting machines is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Increasing urbanization in the various countries of Asia Pacific is estimated to fuel the demand for knitted fabrics.

This, in turn, is estimated to contribute to the Asia Pacific industrial knitting machines market. North America and Europe are considered to be mature areas in the knitting industry, hence, are estimated to project moderate growth during the forecast period. The growing construction industry in Latin America is anticipated to contribute to the industrial knitting machines market in the near future.

Key Market Trends

Automotive Industry benefitting Knitting Industry

Automotive textile is an integral aspect of technical textile. Since it cannot be classified in apparel textile, it is more of a techno mechanical application of textile. Industrial textiles are widely used in transportation vehicles and systems including cars, trains, buses, airplanes and marine vehicles. Approximately 50 square yards of textile material is used in an average car for interior trim (seating areas headliners, side panels, carpets and trunk, lining, tires, filters, belts hoses, airbags etc.)

Carmakers are increasingly favoring the usage of weft knitted fabrics for upholstery. These fabrics are generally manufactured on circular knitting machines and process sequence follows yarn dye route.

Door kick panels, boot linings roof linings, parcel shelves and insulation (heat, sound, vibration etc.) materials are important examples for pre-assembled interior components. Coated laminated needle-punched non-woven and warp knits are the main materials used for the category.

With the onset of pandemic, people switched to personal vehicles rather than travelling in public transport whiich has given a huge boost to automobile sector.
