Market trend: rise in number of new applications
The increasing necessity and need for fiber products from the modern healthcare industry are resulting in the development of the medical fiber and medical textile sectors. Lyocell fibers offer moisture absorbability, softness, and high strength in both dry and wet states. Also, these fibers exhibit low shrinkage properties and remain stable after multiple washes. Also, these fibers have no harmful properties as they are produced using organic and non-toxic solvents. Therefore, lyocell fibers are preferred in sensitive medical applications such as wound care products, surgical gowns, drapes, and tampons.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for textile, fiber, and composites research, “Lyocell fiber is one of the leading cellulose fiber materials widely used in hygiene-based applications. These fibers offer excellent moisture absorbent properties to various non-woven products such as dry and pre-humidified wipes and hygiene products. The real advantage of lyocell fiber mainly resides in their opacity, extra softness, and exceptional purity, which makes them suitable for sensitive applications such as baby diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products.”
Market challenge: declining prices of synthetic fibers
