Follow us on LinkedIn – Zippers are indispensable fastening devices which find ubiquitous use in textiles, apparel, footwear, furnishings, automotive upholstery and luggage.

A key factor driving growth in the market include recovering demand in the apparel, luggage and footwear industries as a result of growing GDP, changing lifestyles, heightened fashion consciousness, rising standards of living, and disposable income.
Innovations in the mechanical design and functionality of zippers are also expected to spur growth in the market. Air tight, waterproof and flame-resistant zippers are opening up new avenues for growth in the market. Airtight zippers are extremely useful in the design and production of completely airtight suits for astronauts and aircrew. Similarly, waterproof zippers are analogous to airtight zippers and are used in waterproof products such as immersion suits that keep divers and scuba divers dry and warm in cold waters. Manufacturers are also customizing products based on specific requirements of clients by offering zippers, zipper pullers, sliders and tapes in various colors and finishes. In addition, the growing prominence of exposed zippers as a hot fashion trend is benefiting growth in the apparel industry. A major market trend influencing growth is the replacement of metallic zippers with plastic zippers. Although metal zippers are firm, strong, and durable, they are susceptible to corrosion when exposed to oxides and chemicals. Plastic zippers, on the other hand, require less maintenance. Apart from corrosion, metal zippers are heavy and tend to add to the overall weight of the garment, luggage or accessory.
