Lyocell Fibers Market Research, 2031

The global lyocell fibers market size was valued at $1.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2022 to 2031.

Lyocell fiber is a form of regenerated cellulose produced by dissolving pulp and dry jet-wet spinning. Unlike rayon produced by some of the more common viscose processes, the production of Lyocell fibers does not use carbon disulfide, which is harmful to workers and the environment. Lyocell fibers have a soft and smooth texture. These fibers are lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. Their elasticity and strength properties make them exceptionally durable materials. Besides, compared to cotton, they have better moisture absorption. These fibers are ideal for sensitive skin owing to their soft feel. Also, the production of lyocell fibers does not require any irrigation process or pesticides. In addition, lyocell fiber is regarded as a sustainable fiber as it is produced from wood and is, thus, biodegradable and compostable.

Moreover, lyocell fibers are frequently used in the production of environment-friendly undergarments, sustainable towels, ethical jeans, and formal shirts. Lyocell fibers is mixed with silk, cotton, rayon, polyester, linen, nylon, and wool. Lyocell fibers are used across many applications such as apparel, home textiles, medical and hygiene, filtration, and others. Lyocell fibers have been shown to have enhanced antibacterial activity against different bacteria and fungus indicating promise use in medicinal or sanitary products. These are used to make newborn diapers as well as surgical coats for doctors and nurses.The increase in demand for lyocell fibers from apparel home, textiles, medical & hygiene, filtration, and other industries is expected to serve as a crucial growth factor for the global lyocell fibers industry.

Lyocell Fibers Market

Lyocell fibers are used in a number of filtering applications, including lightweight tea bag and coffee filter papers, industrial and automotive air and liquid filters, and food and beverage high-capacity depth filters. Lyocell fibers filter media can be utilized in respirators, cleanrooms, furnace filters, vacuum cleaners, and cabin air filters. Lyocell fibers are widely used in various types of filter media with their microfibrillar structure, excellent thermal stability and chemical resistance. These fibers significantly enhance performance attributes of sheet materials including permeability, mechanical properties, pore structure, filtration performance, chemical resistance and formation.

Moreover, lyocell fiber is used in every element of the footwear, including the top fabric, lining, insoles, and laces/zipper/sewing thread, as well as nonwoven fiber in insoles or padding. Lyocell fibers may be used to make impressively moisture-wicking footwear. It can be woven to form a fabric for use in footwear components either on its own or in combination with other yarns. Besides, lyocell fibers have high durability, high moisture absorbency, and high tensile strength especially in wet state. Besides, there is rise in popularity of biodegradable fibers across the globe. Consequently, lyocell fibers find applications in conveyor belts, wipes, ropes, abrasive materials, protective suiting material, automotive seat covers, and battery separators.

Further, developments in the textile industry is another key factor that fosters the market growth during the forecast period. However, availability of the substitute is anticipated to hamper the growth of the global lyocell fibers market. On the contrary, eco-friendly production of lyocell fibers is expected to generate lucrative opportunities for the global lyocell fibers market growth.

Lyocell fibers is extensively used in the production of infant diapers as well as surgical jackets for physicians and nurses. It is known to exhibit improved antibacterial activity against various bacteria and fungi, indicating that it might be used in therapeutic or hygienic goods. Such growing demand for lyocell fibers in medical and hygienic application is projected to drive the growth of the lyocell fibers market throughout the forecast period.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic had major impact on the application of lyocell fibers including apparel, home textile, medical & hygiene, filtration, footwear, and others. It also negatively impacted the supply of apparel as well as the import and export of textile. The COVID-19 pandemic adversely hit the textile, apparel and fashion sectors worldwide with tremendous loss to businesses. However, as the virus continues to spread, the populace is inclining towards health and hygiene.

Moreover, lyocell fibers are highly demanded in medical sector as it is used for medical dressings such as patches, wound paddings, bandages, bandaging material, plaster padding fabrics, underwear, nightwear for neurodermatitis patients, orthopedic supporting bandages, wound gaze, compresses, medical gauze, compression bandages, compression stockings, and tube bandages.

Health concerns were not taken seriously before the COVID 19 outbreak. Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, the health awareness among the populace has grown and the medical and hygiene sector grown during the pandemic. The healthcare industry is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7.9% from 2022 to 2030, with a value of $320.6 billion in 2021. Thus, rise in awareness about health and hygiene and growth in medical sector are predicted to surge the demand for lyocell fibers during the pandemic.
