According to analysis and market insights regarding Polyester Fabrics globally, data from Bridge Market Research states that Polyester Fabrics will experience a CAGR or annual growth rate of up to 8.7 percent in the period 2022-2029. This of course also opens up great opportunities for the local Indonesian market to take part in the development and use of this polyester material. Polyester fiber made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is capable of being recycled and has a low production cost so that it has promising profit opportunities.
Not only that, the ability of Polyester material to adapt, good elasticity, and resistance to wrinkles or mildew are advantages for this material.
It's no wonder that Polyester is one of the basic materials widely used in the world's textile industry, including Indonesia.
The Indonesian textile industry itself is currently using polyester for various finished products, such as printed futsal jersey which is made from a mixture of Polyester, Nylon, and Spandex.
Characteristics and Advantages of Polyester
Polyester material's high resistance to mold and wrinkling is supported because this fiber is hydrophobic and dries quickly. Polyester is more resistant to AUS (Abrasion Resistant Steel) when compared to cotton or other textile materials.
This material can be used as insulation in the form of hollow fibers and retains its shape even in bad weather. Therefore, this polyester material is also often used by convection uniforms for the manufacture of uniforms.
