According to a new report published by Allied Market Research titled,“Recycled Textile Market by Type, and End-Use Industry: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019–2026,” the Global Recycled Textile market size was valued at $5.3 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to generate $8.0 billion by 2026. The market is projected to experience growth at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2019 to 2026.

Recycled textiles are obtained from recycling and recovering old clothing and waste/residual fibrous materials. They are mostly generated from sources such as tires, carpets, furniture, footwear, non-durable goods (sheets and towels), and others. The old clothing and fabrics are processed through various technologies into new products. Consumption of recycled textiles offers both environmental and economic benefits such as less pressure on raw resources like wool and cotton, reduced pollution, and less water & energy consumption.

The global recycled textile market is consolidated in nature. Many corporations are focusing on reduction in carbon emissions through recycling old fabrics and waste fabrics and materials. The increase in recycling activities from such corporations fosters the growth of the market. Moreover, rise in demand from several end use sectors such as garments, fabrics, and automotive also drives the growth of the market. Furthermore, the low cost involved in recycling products compared to new products is also expected to boost the recycled textile market growth. However, increase in processing cost is expected to hamper the market growth. Moreover, low-quality job offerings are expected to hinder the growth of the overall recycled textile industry. Meanwhile, the technological development in recycling processes may offer lucrative growth opportunities for the recycled textile market.
