Global Lyocell Fiber Market to Grow at a CAGR of Over 7.0%

In 2019, the Lyocell Fiber Market was estimated to be worth USD 975.2 million, and it is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate of over 7% during the forecast period. The rise is mostly attributable to increasing demand for sustainable fabrics. The sharp growth in the global population and the carefree use of natural resources have led to the concept of a circular economy, whereby a recycle-reuse-upcycle model replaces a make-use-dispose economic model. An increase in the number of such initiatives is making it difficult for market players to use non-toxic solvents to produce fibers in an environmental friendly way. Lyocell is a type of rayon fabric. It is made of cellulose fiber, which is created by dissolving pulp and spinning it dry jet-wet. The fabric was created for the first time in 1980s by Courtaulds Fibers, a fabric manufacturer. Lyocell rayon, unlike viscose rayon, does not contain hazardous carbon disulfide, which is harmful to both employees and the environment. The fabric is used in a wide range of industries, including the fashion, the fabric industry, the medical industry, the pulp industry and the paper industry. It is airy, absorbent, long-lasting, soft breathable fabric. The market has segmented on the basis of Type, Application and Regional Basis.
