In this market, different types of microfiber such as polyester, polyamide, and others are used as material. Lucintel forecasts that polyester will remain the largest material during the forecast period due to its soft, durable, electrostatic, and filtering properties. Lucintel predicts that polyamide is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period supported by increasing demand for polyamide blend cleaning cloths as it provides better cleaning than polyester based cleaning cloths.

Within the microfiber market, household will remain the largest end use industry during the forecast period due to an increase in demand for reliable and eco-friendly cleaning cloths and increasing demand for synthetic leather in furniture and decoration.

Asia Pacific will remain the largest region and it is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period supported by increasing demand for microfibers in shoes, furniture, bags, cleaning cloths, automotive, and electronics industries in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.
