IFAI conducts research annually among its own members and across the industrial fabrics industry. The 2021 report is designed to bring into focus a comprehensive understanding of who IFAI member and non-member companies are and the markets they serve. The report dives into these four areas:
- Industry composition, including business types, typical company sizes and annual revenues.
- Products produced and markets served, including top growth markets.
- Manufacturing practices and trends, including sourcing practices, automation trends and related challenges.
- Future outlook, including areas of business investment for growth and top trends to watch.
This report is a departure from past reports that aimed to measure the overall size of the industry and instead focuses on the composition of the industry. The change in reporting is based on the questions and expressed needs of IFAI customers who each are uniquely navigating the best ways to expand, enter new areas of business and thrive.
