Discover the 5 Myths Sabotaging Your Hiring Strategy

Industry Overview

The huge family of fibers – natural or synthetic materials which are significantly longer than they are wide – includes nylon, polyester, acrylic, polyolefin, carbon fiber, fiberglass, and more. This length is all that various fibers really have in common – the ideal one to use for a specific application depends on the degree to which they exhibit other properties, from cohesiveness and absorbency to flexibility and tenacity. This versatility of usefulness makes the fiber field in demand from many sectors.

Adding to their popularity, fibers are generally environmentally sustainable. Synthetic fibers, in particular, are also usually very cost-efficient to produce, though there is always a push to continue streamline processes in order to reduce costs further. Improvements in efficiencies also drive innovation in this field, with carbon fiber’s rise in the automotive industry setting the stage.
