Eco Fibers Market Analysis

The global Eco Fibers Market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period.

The market was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in 2020. The textile industry was one of the industries to be worst affected by the pandemic, with business orders of garments dropping by double-digit numbers in the global market. However, the government of most countries initiated various schemes to revive the sector, which later led to substantial growth and improvement in the sector. For instance, in Europe, the European Union (EU) and Better Work, a program to improve working conditions in the garment industry, decided to join efforts to improve working conditions in countries such as Bangladesh and Vietnam. Such initiatives were expected to revive the sector and boost eco-fiber demand.

  • Over the long run, growing demand for daily and fashion wear and increasing use of eco-fiber in household applications are expected to drive the market studied.
  • The high cost of final products is expected to hinder the market growth of eco fibers through the coming years.
  • Growing demand for natural fibers in various applications is expected to create opportunities for the market in the coming years.
  • Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global eco fibers market, and it is also expected to register the fastest growth through the forecast period.

Eco Fibers Market Trends

Growing Demand from Textile Industry

  • Eco fibers are environmentally friendly and have been increasingly used in textile fabrics.
  • Eco fibers are usually made of different substances, such as hemp, flax, organic cotton, and bamboo, which are used in the production of fabrics. Products, such as organic cotton, are gaining traction and serve as a sustainable alternative to conventional cotton in the global market.
  • Organic cotton production initially started in Turkey, and the organic cotton industry currently occupies the place backbone of the textile industry of many developing countries. The sector has also played an important role in boosting the economies of a few developing countries.
  • Cotton production in India is projected to reach 7.2 million tonnes (~43 million bales of 170 kg each) by 2030, driven by increasing consumer demand. Additionally, China produced nearly 5.98 million tonnes of cotton in 2022, up 4.3 percent yearly, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. The yield per hectare rose 5.3 percent to 1,992.2 kg.
  • Bamboo fiber works naturally as anti-bacterial material and has properties of bacteriostatic and deodorant. Additionally, bamboo fibers offer permeability, a soft feel, and easy straightening and have excellent dye and pigmentation color effect properties to fabrics.
  • Increasing demand for comfort in daily wear, technological advancements in fashion fabrics, and government regulations on textile chemicals in developed regions are driving the demand for innovations in the textile industry, which, in turn, is expected to drive the market for eco fibers through the years to come.
  • India is the second-largest textile producer in the global market. The country's textile industry contributes over 7% of its industrial output and about 2% of its GDP.
  • Furthermore, the United States' textile and apparel shipments totaled USD 65.8 billion in 2022. The country is the third largest exporter of textile-related products in the world. Fiber, textile, and apparel exports were USD 34.0 billion in 2021.
  • Thus, all such factors are expected to drive the market through the years to come.

Asia Pacific to Dominate the Market

  • Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global market, largely driven by the highly developed textile industry in China and India. Moreover, manufacturers prefer to set up manufacturing units in countries, like China, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, owing to high cotton production and low labor costs.
  • Growing environmental issues because of various chemicals used in textiles and a large proportion of the population getting affected by various diseases are increasing the demand for eco fibers in different applications. Eco fibers are human-friendly and cause no damage to the environment even during the production phase.
  • Eco fibers have also been used for household applications, such as tarpaulins, geotextiles, bags, carpets, and furniture materials. China majorly exports its household materials to other countries, like India, Pakistan, Europe, etc.
  • Furthermore, as per the Ministry of Textiles in India, the textile industry is expected to reach USD 223 billion by 2023. India's textile and apparel exports (including handicrafts) stood at USD 44.4 billion in FY22, a 41% increase YoY.
  • Packaging is another sector where demand for eco-friendly fibers is recently gaining momentum. Packaging is considered the fifth largest sector in the Indian economy and is growing around 22-25% per annum, according to the Packing Industry Association of India (PIAI).
  • In 2021, the total shipment value of the Japanese packaging industry was worth around JPY 6.2 trillion (USD 56.6 billion). In Japan, cosmetics industry is one of the major consumers of packaging. In the beauty sector, Japanese brands make up for 80% of sales in the domestic market
  • Additionally, according to World Trade Organization (WTO) data, China leads the global eco-fiber textile market.
  • Overall, such factors are expected to drive market growth in the years to come.
