USAGE AND APPLICATION OF POY/ PFY
POY / PFY is largely used in shirtings and suitings, sarees, ladies’ dress material, and knitwear. POY/ PFY is preferred in men’s wear due to its higher crease recovery, wrinkle resistance, better drape, longer retention of prints and colours, and better abrasion as compared with competing fibres, such as PSF, VSF and NFY. The use of POY / PFY in sarees has increased due to the development of crimping, twisting, texturising and wet processing technologies. These technologies offer more flexibility in designs and patterns. Moreover, these technologies help increase the air permeability of POY / PFY. As a result, the fabric would be able to absorb more moisture. POY / PFY is also used in applications, such as soft luggage and specialty fabrics. POY is sold by producers to the texturising units. The texturising units process POY and sell it to weavers (largely in the powerloom sector). Unlike PSF, PFY is not blended with cotton by blended yarn producers, since it is in the filament form and not in the fiber form. However, in the powerloom stage, PFY can be woven with other yarns.

POY / PFY is a substitute for cotton and other synthetic yarns. POY / PFY has a number of advantages over its substitutes, as a result of which, POY / PFY demand increased at a CAGR of around 16% during the period 1991-92 to 2000-01. The advantages include:
 Better Properties: POY / PFY is more durable, does not fade on exposure to sunlight or soap, has better abrasion resistance, drape and crease recovery properties, and is wrinkle resistant
 Price Competitiveness: Since the 1990s, POY prices have declined significantly, largely due to the decline in the landed costs, on account of decline in the import duty
