Global Metal Fibre Market Overview
Metallic fibres, also known as synthetic fibres, are composed of metals, metals coated by plastics, or the core completely made up of metals. Metal fibres can be drawn from wires of larger diameters, shaved from thicker wire or grown around carbon seeds. Silver and gold were traditionally used in the textile industry for luxury clothing decoration purposes. The primary use of metal fibres lies in upholstery fabric and textiles such as lamé and brocade. Metal fibers are also used by consumers in weaving. Metal fibres can be knit, braided and woven into fashionable trims and fabrics. Metallic fibres are at times twisted with other variety of textiles such as nylon, wools, cotton and more to give a luxury finish to the produced yarns. Metal fibres are produced using two basic processes namely, laminating process and metalizing process. The laminating process involves the sealing of two layers of acetate or polyester film between a layer of aluminum whereas metalizing process involves heating the metal until it vaporizes then depositing at a high pressure onto the polyester film. The uses of metallic fibres are not just limited to textile industry. These fibers are also used in communication lines such as cable television lines and phone lines. The uses of metal fibres have further propelled in the recent past on account of their use in tire cord, space suits, missile nose cones and much more. The increasing uses of metal fibres in various end user industries are estimated to propel the market at a sturdy rate during the forecast period.
