According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global dissolving wood pulp market is the increase in demand for cotton substitute in textile manufacturing:

Global dissolving wood pulp market: Increase in demand for cotton substitute in textile manufacturing

Cotton is the traditional raw material used in the manufacturing of textile, accounting for a significant share in textile manufacturing. However, production of cotton is mainly dependent on the availability of arable land and an adequate amount of water. The increasing population across the world has led to shrinkage of arable land. Additionally, farmers are focused on fulfilling the food requirements of the population, leading to a decrease in land availability for the growth of cotton. The high water requirement for cotton poses a difficult challenge owing to the decreasing availability of freshwater globally.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals, “The growth of cotton requires a large amount of pesticides and insecticides for protection from various pests, which leads to pollution of the groundwater. This growth is also heavily dependent on weather conditions. For example, cold temperatures affect the yield of cotton negatively. These drawbacks collectively decrease the cultivation of cotton crops, leading to the inability to meet the global requirements of cotton. Thus, manufacturers are shifting towards raw materials such as VSF, which is manufactured from DWP, for textile manufacturing to meet the global demand.”
