Stretch fibres and fabrics offer several performance benefits compared with their stretchless counterparts. Indeed, elastane, a fibre which was first introduced in the 1950s for use in corsetry, is now used in virtually all categories of apparel – including compression garments, denim, everyday ready-to-wear garments, fashion wear, hosiery, outerwear, shapewear (shaping garments), sportswear, swimwear, underwear, waistbands and workwear – as a result of consumer demand for apparel which facilitates a high level of stretch and recovery. Furthermore, several variants of elastane have recently been developed in order to meet additional performance demands relating to durability. There have also been major advances in the development of alternative stretch fibres such as polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polytrimethylene therephtalate (PTT) and elasterell. As a result, stretch fabric manufacturers can now choose from a broad range of fibres in order to meet specific customer demands in terms of stretch and recovery and other performance properties. This report provides a wealth of information on various types of stretch fibres and stretch fabrics, and the applications in which they are used. The report also discusses trends in supply and demand, and an overview of the key producers of stretch fibres and yarns, and stretch fabrics.
