Carpet Backing Material Market: Overview

  • Carpets are produced by weaving, knotting, knitting, stitching/stitch-bonding, adhesive bonding, and electrostatic flocking. Synthetic fibers (polyacrylonitrile, polyamide, and polyester) and wool are used for soft hair carpets; mohair, goat hair, and cotton are also utilized for these purposes. These are joined with different materials for backing. Each face fiber offers different quality and characteristics such as wear, feel, stain resistance, and flammability. Sometimes, face fibers are mixed in order to create different feel, look, or other characteristics. Carpets can be manufactured either as needled, woven, tufted, and other carpets. Additionally, carpets are made in forms of vehicular, broadloom, and carpet tiles. Tufted is a commonly used carpet.
