Polyester fibers are polymers that are obtained from the polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It is an artificial and manmade fiber manufactured from nonwoven bonded materials. Polyester fibers are used in the production of artificial nonwoven bonded fabric. It strengthens the usability of the finished product. Polyester fiber was discovered in 1940 and commercial scale production started in 1947. Polyester fibers are mainly used for apparel and are used in trousers, skirts, dresses, suits, jackets, blouses and outdoor clothing. PTA and MEG are key raw materials in the manufacture of polyester. Polyester is further molded through the extrusion process to produce polyester fiber. Raw materials are heated to a spinning mass, which is then pressed through spinnerets.

Polyester fiber exhibit good chemical and physical properties such as the good elasticity, wear and tear property, low humidity absorption, creases free, quick drying, abrasion free, and water resistance and low humidity absorption capability. Polyester fibers are particularly resistant to light and weather and can withstand climatic effects. They can be used where lightness and fineness are primary requirements. Polyester fibers are very well suited to blends with natural fibers.

Polyester fiber is mainly driven strong demand from emerging economies. Increased construction of both residential and commercial spaces is expected to be a vital factor driving the demand for carpets and rugs. Emerging economies like China and India are projected to witness the highest growth in construction activities over the next few years due to rapid industrialization and infrastructure development. Rising disposable incomes coupled with changing lifestyles will likely to drive the home furnishings market. Carpets and rugs account for a notable share of the home furnishings market. This expected to fuel growth of polyester fiber market.
