Global aramid fiber market outlook

EDANA joins the Circular Plastics Alliance

C6 ban expected in the EU

According ResearchAndMarket.com's report
"Aramid Fiber Market-Forecasts from 2020
to 2025," the global aramid fiber market is
expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.59% over
the forecast period to reach a total market size
of US$6.315 billion by 2025, increasing from
US$3.852 billion in 2019. Aramid fiber is a
class of strong synthetic fiber that is widely
used for ballistic-rated body armor fabric and
composites. The growing adoption of aramid
in the aerospace industry is expected to be one
of the prime drivers for growth.

EDANA, the association representing the
nonwovens and related industries, has joined
the Circular Plastics Alliance. EDANA endorses
the vision to deliver on the circular economy
for plastics and substantially increase the use
of recycled plastics in new products. By 2025 at
least 10 million tons of recycled plastics should
find their way into products and packaging
in Europe each year. In 2018, EDANA issued
a pledge to increase the use of recycled PET
(rPET) in nonwovens. EDANA furthers its
commitment, offering expertise and unique
supply chain network to the alliance of 190
private and public stakeholders to boost the
EU market for recycled plastics.

The use of fluorocarbon-based C6 water repellents in textiles and other consumer goods in
Europe may be coming to an end this year.
According to Ecotextile News, Germany has
submitted proposed new rules to restrict perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA) coming onto the
market. A consultation period is in effect until
Sept. 25, 2020. Appeals to the proposed new
legislation are not expected. What is expected
is a future ban on all fluorocarbon-based water
repellents, the article reported. In addition,
a European Union restriction on C8 to C14
perfluorinated substances used to make durable
water repellent coatings will also come into
effect July 4, 2020.

Industry support,
valuable resources
I've called IFAI a couple of times
when I was looking for something.
It's a good resource for a lot of
people in the industry, and it's
good to support the industry.
