Viscose Staple Fiber Market - Segmented by Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

The global viscose staple fiber (VSF) market accounted for 5601.32 kilo metric ton in 2017, and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.79% during 2018 to 2023 (the forecast period). One of the major factors driving the growth of the market studied is the growing demand for apparels and clothing. The rising demand from textile & apparel, non-woven, and specialty manufacturing sectors have also hugely attributed to the growth of the market. 

Growing demand for Apparels and Clothing

Viscose is an organic liquid produced from wood pulp. The processing of VSF imparts it with special characteristics, such as high strength and low moisture retention, that are useful in the textile and apparel industries. Moreover, these fibers are best suited for the highly-advanced machines in the textile industry.  Apparel is one of the oldest and largest export industries in the world. It is also one of the fastest growing global industries as most developing nations manufacture textiles for the international textile and apparel market. The apparel & clothing industry grew at a healthy rate despite the economic slowdown and the trend is is expected to majorly drive the viscose staple fiber market during the forecast period. 

Wooven to Dominates the Market

Viscose staple fibers (VSF) or artificial cotton fibers are natural and biodegradable. These fibers are obtained from wood pulp and cotton pulp, which share the characteristics of cotton fibers. These are versatile and easily bendable fibers, and have a wide-range of application in apparels, home textiles, home furnishings, dress materials, and woven & knit wear. Asia-Pacific, the largest market for woven fabrics, is witnessing a healthy growth due to the increasing demand in countries, like India, China, etc. Increasing demand for textiles and apparels is expected to drive the demand for VSF in these applications.

Asia-Pacific to Dominates the Market

Asia-pacific is expected to dominate the VSF market during the forecast period. China is the largest producer and consumer of viscose staple fiber, globally. The country accounts for ~65% of the total globally produced viscose staple fiber owing to the rapidly increasing yarn production. With the increase in yarn production in China, the demand for viscose staple fiber is expected to grow. Yarn production has been increasing, due to the increasing production of non-woven fabrics in the country. The textile industry in India is one of the most vital sector of the economy, contributing nearly 4% to the country’s GDP. India is the world’s second largest manufacturer and exporter of textile and apparel, after China. Japan exports viscose staple fiber to countries, including China, Vietnam, the United States, and Indonesia. Adoption of latest technologies in processing of textiles has stimulated the growth of textile industry in Japan.
