According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Lyocell Fiber Market size will reach over USD 1.5 billion by 2024. Modern technology and fibers have been developed which have escalated the use of better-quality materials. Brands have started focusing on fibers that can be recycled and can be reused after the end of a product’s lifecycle.
Government initiatives have been taken to adopt sustainable fibers for textile and apparels industry. The apparels segment in North America accounted for a major chunk of the product share (over 40%) in 2016. The environment friendly production process of the material also acts as a major driver to boost the lyocell fiber market. There has been a significant impact through social media on the apparel segment, which in turn has positively influenced the industry.
The petrochemical fibers have been substituted by cellulosic man-made fibers, which has spurred the product adoption in the manufacturing processes. The pressure on synthetic fiber manufacturers has increased due to the increasing demand for naturally derived fibers. The product finds its application in various segments such as baby diapers, home textiles, apparels, automotive filters, surgical products and many more. The healthcare and wound care textiles segment is likely to grow at a robust pace, owing to the evolving technologies for recovery of surgical wounds.
Despite numerous opportunities, lyocell fiber market will face challenges due to its expensive pricing compared to the eco-friendly alternatives. Extra caring of delicate fabrics such as cold rinse, hand wash, and dry-clean can increase the maintenance costs as well. Also, the product shrinks up to 3% after the first wash.
