Growth in oil and gas and manufacturing industry will drive the textile coatings market, according to the report. North America is expected to witness growth in oil and gas and manufacturing industry due to the recent discoveries of shale gas and shale oil in the region and strong manufacturing base in the US.

Other countries such as Argentina, India, UAE, South Africa, Australia, Malaysia, and Chile are estimated to exhibit the fastest-growth in the manufacturing industry. China accounts for the largest manufacturing industry globally, and is also amongst the leading oil and gas countries in terms of production and consumption. All these factors will account for its fastest-growth in textile coatings market.

Thermoplastics dominate market

The global textile coatings market was dominated by thermoplastics, as it was largest in terms of both value and volume, in 2015. This is due to the fact that PVC is the most used coating for various applications due to its reduced cost, easy weldability, and range of colours available.

In addition, it can be easily painted or printed. PU being an eco-friendly textile coating, and its acceptance by the manufacturers in North America and Europe, will also support the market for thermoplastics type textile coatings.
