Coated Fabrics

13th Edition

Featuring 54 tables and 26 figures – now available in Excel and Powerpoint!

Coated fabrics are often categorized by their coating type, since coatings typically provide these materials’ primary performance characteristics, including:

  • resistance to flame, heat, abrasion, chemicals, and other extreme conditions
  • barriers against moisture, heat, biological contamination, and other hazards
  • ease of cleaning fabric surfaces

Polymer-coated fabrics account for the largest share of the market in value terms, representing 88% of value demand in 2018.

Laminated Fabrics

This study analyzes supply and demand for the US coated fabric industry. Coated fabrics are defined here as a type of technical textile consisting of substrate (or base) fabrics coated or laminated with polymeric or elastomeric coatings or films.

Fabrics treated with chemical finishes – such as 3M’s Scotchgard or other stain- or water-repellent finishes – are not coated fabrics as defined here and are therefore not included. Additionally, textiles that are coated or otherwise treated at the fiber level are not included in this study.

Coated fabrics are categorized by type of product:

  • polymer-coated fabrics (e.g., vinyl-coated, polyurethane-coated, polytetrafluoroethylene-coated, polyethylene-coated, polypropylene-coated, acrylic-coated)
  • rubber-coated fabrics
  • fabric-backed wallcoverings

Coated fabrics are also characterized by their substrate fabric (e.g., polyester, nylon, cotton, and others).

The major markets for coated fabrics include:

  • motor vehicles
  • protective clothing
  • industrial
  • furniture
  • marine equipment
  • other transportation equipment
  • commercial and rental tents
  • luggage and baggage
  • awnings and canopies
  • wallcoverings

Historical data are provided at the coated fabric manufacturer level for 2008, 2013, and 2018, with forecasts provided for 2023. Coated fabric demand and shipments are presented in current dollars by type of product. Demand is also presented in square yards for coated fabrics by substrate and by market.
