H
STATE OF THE
INDUSTRY
REPORT
After two years of uncertainty
and global crises, the industrial
fabrics industry is prospering.
by Tim Goral
 The Specialty Fabrics Review 2022
State of the Industry report is a
snapshot of how our readers fared
in the last year, as well as their
predictions for the future.
ow did textile and fabric
manufacturers survive the global
pandemic? How do supply chain
issues and labor shortages continue to be a
problem? What markets are manufacturers
looking to expand into, and how do they
plan to get there? Which trends will have
the biggest impact on the industry in the
next two years?
The 2022 State of the Industry Report by the
Advanced Textiles Association (formerly IFAI)
attempts to take the pulse of manufacturers and
businesses in the industrial fabrics industry and
answer these questions among others. ATA conducts
research annually among its members and across
the industrial fabrics industry. This survey recorded
the views of nearly 300 industry professionals. These
included end-product manufacturers and fabricators
(21%), equipment manufacturers (9%), marine
fabricators (6%) and distributors (8%) among others.
In some instances, percentages were rounded up
to the next whole number, while scaled answers such
as " important " and " extremely important " were
combined for clarity.
As we continue to pull out of a global pandemic,
with lessons learned about how to cope with a sudden
and dramatic change in how businesses operate, we
see businesses for the most part returning to normal
and equaling or surpassing pre-COVID conditions.
This report is the result of questionnaires sent to
ATA members earlier this year. The respondents gave
a snapshot of how their businesses have changed over
the last two years, and what they anticipate for their
futures. And, in tandem with reports on the textile
industry outlook globally, despite some ongoing
problems, the future looks positive.
