The elastomer-coated fabrics market is projected to reach $11.85 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.16 percent for the period according to a new report by Research and Markets. Increased demand from end-use applications such as transportation, protective clothing, industrial and others is largely driving the market. The use of solvents in the production of elastomer-coated fabrics is the major source of hazardous air pollutants, which is a barrier for the market. The demand for elastomer-coated fabrics in transportation applications can be attributed to properties that make them rot-proof, dirt and oil-repellent, and mildew, water and UV resistant. They are used for a wide range of applications including airbags, seat belts, and truck tarpaulins and covers.
