Development of Composite Fabrics for the Auto Industry to Fuel Growth

The push for increased sustainability in the automotive industry is driving leading automakers and vehicle component suppliers to innovate and incorporate composite industrial fabrics in their vehicles. For instance, French auto giant Renault recently developed a fabric for its Zoé subcompact vehicle made entirely from recycled materials. This fabric is produced from seatbelt scraps, other automotive textiles, and polyester fibers from recycled PET bottles. Similarly, Switzerland-based Autoneum engineered a lightweight textile called Hybrid-Acoustics PET, made from PET fibers, which insulates and absorbs sound waves in vehicle engine bays. Thus, the growing use of waste materials to manufacture sustainable textiles for automotive applications is fostering new innovations in the market.
