U.S. Lyocell Fiber Market Size, by Application, 2013 – 2024 (USD Million)
The population has been continuously rising over the past few years. The rising per capita income of the people in Asia Pacific has fueled the textile and apparels industry growth. Robust economic growth has noticeably escalated the textiles demand. The increasing demand along with ongoing innovations in the textile manufacturing will drive the global lyocell fiber market in coming years. The product possesses high strength, especially in wet state. It has high durability and doesnt shrink, which makes it a preferred choice for home textiles and apparels. It can easily blend with other fibers and can be dyed to provide desirable decorative effects. The product fibrillates under certain conditions which imparts aesthetics to the fabric.
The rapid development in the healthcare industry has also boosted the lyocell fiber market. The growing awareness of using sterilized products coupled with the increasing popularity of biodegradable fibers is likely to drive the lyocell fiber market. The antibacterial properties of the product make it suitable to be used for surgical products.
The product manufacturing involves a closed loop process, wherein solvents and chemicals employed can be used again. The eco-friendly manufacturing process is also a major factor that will propel the lyocell fiber market growth. The chemicals used in the manufacturing process do not pose a threat to the environment as they are used in small quantities. These factors will have a positive influence on the lyocell fiber market.
The factor which can obstruct the lyocell fiber market is the fact that the fiber is expensive than its counterparts such as rayon, linen, ramie, and cotton. This makes the apparel manufacturers to use the substitutes and thus restrains the industry growth. Developing technology to reduce the production cost may lower the factor impact in coming years.
Market Segmentation, Outlook & Regional Insights: Lyocell Fiber Market
Lyocell Fiber Market, By Product
The lyocell fiber market can be bifurcated into staple fiber and cross-linked fiber. The staple fiber has several applications in towels, denim, casual wear, etc. It can be easily separated into fibrils. Cross-linked fiber has low fibrillation capacity, which makes it resistant to regeneration process, thus, making it unsuitable feedstock for the processes.
The cross-linked fiber is not easily biodegradable, owing to its low fibrillation property. Landfill, composting and incineration can be used to decompose the fiber. Cross-linked fibers can be used in many filter applications and gives a silkier texture than the staple fiber. The major applications of cross-linked fiber are in jersey fabric, woven fabric, and knitwear.
Lyocell Fiber Market, By Application
The lyocell fiber market is segmented on the basis of applications into apparels, home textiles, surgical products, baby diapers, automotive filters and others such as vehicle carpeting, cigarette filters, etc. The apparels segment has dominated the lyocell fiber market and will continue to do so over the forecast period, owing to the desirable properties such as softness and absorbent qualities. This segment includes casual wear, denims, knitwear, sportswear, coats, and a variety of products. In 2016, the apparels segment accounted for more than half of the global lyocell fiber market. This segment has significantly contributed to the economies of the countries with the aid of online retail.
Apparels segment is followed by home textiles, which include bed sheets, drapes, curtains, and carpets. This segment had more than 20% share of the overall lyocell fiber market in 2016. The product is used in several medical accessories such as absorbent pad, wound-contact layer, elastic and non-elastic bandages, compression bandages, gauze dressing and wipes used in the operation theatre.
The product is used in non-woven apparels such as baby diapers, surgical swabs, and filtration applications, as it has better moisture absorbency than its substitutes. It also finds application in dehumidification sheets and a precursor for carbon fiber. In automotive sector, the product is used for seat covers, battery separators, etc.
Lyocell Fiber Market, By Region
The regional analysis has been carried out for North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific has contributed the highest in terms of volume and revenue and is estimated to grow with the rising trend. Lyocell fiber market demand has been triggered by growing textiles industry and improved living standards.
