Polybenzoxazole Fibers Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (4, 6-Diammino Resorcinol, Terephthaloyl Chloride), By Application (Military Application, Space Elevatoras, Motorsport Applications, Conductive Textiles, Others) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI105294 | Status : Ongoing



Polybenzoxazole fibers , commercially known as Zylon, are  one of the strongest synthetic fibers having high thermal stability, flame resistance and high tensile strength making it suitable for several applications. They are twice as strong as amid fibers such as Kevlar and Nomex. Due to their excellent mechanical properties such as low self-weight and high tensile strength, they find applications in reinforced materials. Moreover, these fibers absorbs low moisture, making it suitable for high humidity working conditions. Additionally, the properties like abrasion and resistance to cut, makes these fibers ideal for protective clothing used in electrical application.

These fibers are produced by a dry-jet wet spinning process. It is a complex manufacturing process and moreover expensive. Thus these fibers are only used for demanding applications such as bullet proof vests, expensive sporting goods and various civil engineering materials.

Polybenzoxazole fibers are used in the manufacturing of sports clothing, owing to excellent properties like high flexibility and low welf-weight. Moreover, they are used in motorsport racing applications for affixing tires to the chassis with these fibers, preventing the airborne movement of wheels in case of high-speed mishap. This is expected to increase the demand for polybenzoxazole fibers. Growing use of these fibers in manufacturing of firefighting suits and other protective clothing is expected to boost the market growth.

However, due to the mechanical as well as chemical degradation of these fibers, the demand for these fibers is affected and hence restraining the market growth.

Key Market Driver -

Demand for protective clothing and lightweight materials along with its application in sports clothing and motorsport racing will drive the market growth.

Key Market Restraint -

Periodic degradation both mechanically and chemically to hinder the growth
