Lyocell fabric feels like soft cotton or it can be added to other fabrics which results in more strong composite fabric than core fabrics. Therefore, it is majorly consumed in the manufacturing of soft apparels. Recently, there has been increasing demand for lyocell fabric in healthcare applications due to its high tensile nature.

In terms of consumption, Asia Pacific dominated the global lyocell market in 2018. Favorable growth of the textile industry in emerging economies such as China and India has created a highly conductive environment for growth of lyocell fabrics market in the region. According to India Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian textile industry is projected to reach US$ 230 Billion by the end of 2020.

Key Market Takeaways:

  • Increasing preference towards use of bio-based resources in various end-use industries is expected to drive demand for lyocell fabric during the forecast period. Lyocell is 100% biodegradable in nature and its production does not produce any harmful by-products. Lyocell is produced from eucalyptus trees, and the growth and cultivation of eucalyptus trees requires less water and pesticides, which makes it environmentally friendly. The amine oxide solvent which is used during production process of lyocell fabric is non-toxic in nature and it is mostly recycled during production. These advantages of lyocell fabric are expected to increase its demand from end-use industries.
  • Some of the major players operating in the global lyocell fabric market include Lenzing A.G., Aditya Birla Group, AkzoNobel N.V., Baoding Swan Fiber Co. Ltd., Qingdao Textiles Group Fiber Technology Co., Ltd. and China Bambro Textile (Group) Co., Ltd.
  • Leading manufacturers of lyocell fabrics are focused on increasing their investments in regional markets to expand their market share. For instance, in June 2019, Lenzing A.G. established a new lyocell fiber production plant in Prachinburi (Thailand). The plant will have a production capacity of 1,00,000 tons, and will be operational by the end of 2021. The new plant will help Lenzing strengthen its specialty fibers production capability. In March 2019, Lenzing partnered with Solvay S.A. (Belgium-based chemical manufacturer) to develop a new sustainable fabric. The new fabric will be developed by combining Lenzing’s TENCELL lyocell fiber and Solvay’s Amni Soul Eco (a biodegradable polyamide).
