Monofilament fishing line is synthetic line made from a single strand of fiber or filament. Such lines are durable, clear, and sensitive for anglers to detect fish bites. Monofilament lines provide a better fighting action with flexible casting properties compared to alternatives. These lines come in various breaking strengths and diameters to suit specific fishing applications. Popular fish species caught using monofilament line include bass, trout, bluegill, crappie and panfish that inhabit lakes and ponds. The global popularity of recreational fishing has encouraged tackle manufacturers to innovate better quality monofilament lines.
The global Monofilament Fishing Line Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 920 million in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
