The raw materials derived from crude oil are often used for manufacturing spandex fibers. Therefore, price fluctuation of crude oil prices hinders growth of the spandex fibers market. The geopolitical issues between the countries like the U.S., Iran, Iraq, Russia, and Saudi Arabia impacted the crude oil prices. For instance, in the beginning of 2020, demand for oil drastically declined following lockdowns and travel restrictions, due to pandemic. For instance, in April 2020, crude oil prices traded at $3/bbl., whereas, the U.S. oil prices dropped below zero. Thus, volatility in crude oil prices is expected to be a significant challenge for the spandex fiber manufacturers during the forecast period. Increase in alternative products, due to rapid innovation and on-going major investments by the top market players and emerging market entrants hinder the development of spandex fiber market.
