More About the Industry: The Awnings Fabric Market
February 15, 2022
The awnings fabric market is growing. From evolutions in fabric material options to developments in performance, the market has seen growth with synthetic alternatives. Currently valued at $288M, the global awnings fabric market size 2022 is expected to see a CAGR of 2.3% to $330.1M by 2028.
A unique subset of the textiles industry, awning fabrics feature advanced properties that allow them to withstand dramatic changes in weather conditions across the seasons. These properties give awnings the strength to resist wear and tears from the outdoors, including UV lighting, damage by rain or dirt, and years of being opened and closed many times.
While awnings were once made primarily of canvas, beginning in the early 1960s, acrylic became the synthetic alternative material of choice. In recent years, polyester has become a champion thanks to its environmentally conscious manufacturing processes.
Generally, synthetic awning fabric is made from vinyl, acrylic, polyester, or a combination. Synthetic fabrics make a difference in performance because they are formed, coated, backed, and dyed. Each features distinct advantages. Acrylic has the look and feel of canvas, while polyester is thinner and flatter with a matte surface. Both types have made recent developments in terms of strength, light fastness, UVA and UVB projection, and nano-coatings.
