Europe Polyester Staple Fiber Market Drivers
Increasing Automobile Production:
Textile materials such as polyester staple
fibers are extensively used in automobiles in the production of automobile
carpets, seating fabrics, side, roof, floor and door panels, safety belts,
tires, airbags, air filters, fuel filters, insulation materials and more. Polyester (mainly polyethylene terephthalate but also polybutylene
terephthalate and polyethylene naphthalate) is the predominant fiber used in the
manufacturing of automotive textiles. Polyester staple fibers are widely
used in automobiles because they are economical and have a high level of
durability, which has resulted from the booming automotive industry and the
acceleration of automobile sales. The automotive industry is growing in European
countries, for illustration, according to the Verband der Automobilindustrie
(VDA), in contrast to the standstill in passenger car production in Germany in
April 2020 (-97 percent), in April 2021, 316,200 cars were built
(+2701 percent). In the first four months of this year, production reached
almost 1.3 million units (+22 percent). According to the
International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the
production of heavy trucks increased from 236,328 units in 2020 to 308,300
units in 2021, an increase of 31%. Also, the production of light commercial
vehicles increased from 2,110,220 units in 2020 to 2,183,190 units in 2021, an
increase of 4%. With the increasing automobile production, the demand for automotive
carpets, seating fabrics, airbags and more is also increasing in the region, thereby
acting as a driver for the Europe Polyester Staple Fiber Market during the
Growing Building and Construction Activities:
It is well known that combining polyester staple fibers with asphalt
cement enhances the shear, tensile and temperature stability of the resulting
concrete. The demand for polyester staple fibers is gradually rising in the
European building and construction sector as builders increasingly concentrate
on making their structures stronger to comply with the strict regulations
implemented by several countries. The European building and construction
industry are gradually growing, for illustration, according to the European
Construction Sector Observatory (ECSO), the volume index of production in Ireland
broad construction sector recorded an increase of 31.4% during 2015-2020,
mainly driven by a 39.2% increase in the construction of buildings.
The volume index of production in Belgium's broad construction sector
increased by 2.8% between 2015 and 2019. Similarly, the volume index of
production in the Denmark narrow construction sub-sector increased by
17.8% during the 2015-2020 period. This was driven by the growth in the volume
index of production in the construction of buildings (+20.0%) over the same
period. In the UK, from 2015 to 2019, the volume index of production in
the overall construction sector increased by 12.4 percent. Building and civil
engineering construction both grew concurrently during the aforementioned period,
at rates of 18.4% and 11.6 percent, respectively. This growth will undoubtedly

Fluctuating Raw Material Prices:
The raw materials often used for the production of polyester staple
fiber are the downstream products of crude oil such as polyethylene
naphthalate, polyethylene terephthalate, mono ethylene glycol and purified
terephthalic acid. During the previous few years, the price of crude oil has
been extremely volatile. For instance, the price of Brent crude oil has
decreased from US$98.95/bbl in 2014 to US$52.39/bbl in 2015 and increased from
US$43.73/bbl in 2016 to US$71.31/bbl in 2018 and then decreased to US$64.21/bbl
in 2019 and US$41.84/bbl in 2020, according to the BP Statistical Review of
World Energy. The volatility in the price of oil has caused fluctuation in the
prices of polyethylene naphthalate, mono ethylene glycol, purified terephthalic
acid and polyethylene terephthalate, which is the major raw material for the
manufacturing of polyester staple fiber. Thus, the fluctuation in the price of
crude oil has a direct influence on the price of the polyester staple fiber, which
is a significant challenge for the Europe Polyester Staple Fiber Market during
