Technological advancements have played a pivotal role in accelerating global — lyocell fiber market size. Fiber manufactures worldwide are levering technological innovations to develop superior quality products, while clothing brands are focusing on opting fibers that can be reused and reprocessed after the completion of its shelf life.
Lyocell fiber is one such biodegradable fiber that is obtained from natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The product has a better moisture absorption capacity than cotton. It exhibits some anti-bacterial properties, encouraging customers to opt lyocell fiber materials, in turn creating prominent demand and opportunities for product manufacturers.
Lyocell fibers are also used to manufacture baby diapers, apparels, home textiles, surgical products, and automotive filters. Out of these, the apparels segment is expected to offer significant proceeds to the lyocell fiber market.
In 2016, the apparels segment in North America accounted for over 40% of the overall market share. Strong presence of social media platforms and rising awareness regarding the product’s environment friendly production process have augmented the apparels application sphere.
Notably, Acelon Chemicals & Fiber Corporation, smartfiber AG, Qingdao Textiles Group Fiber Technology, Chonbang, China Populus Textile, Acegreen Eco-Material Technology, Baoding Swan Fiber Co, and Lenzing AG are currently at the forefront of lyocell fiber market.
High product cost could impact lyocell fiber market growth
Lyocell fibers are costly as compared to their eco-friendly counterparts.
