The global cellulose fiber market is predicted to demonstrate a stellar CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2027) owing to the increasing demand for textile industry, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). It can touch a valuation of USD 41.5 Billion by 2027. Cellulose fibers are generally made up of ether or esters of the cellulose. They are obtained from the wood or the bark, leaves of plants, or any other plant-based material. These fibers are referred to as a compound of hemicelluloses and lignin. Some comprise varying percentages of these compounds that are responsible for mechanical properties. Clothing in the textile industry is the major application of the cellulose fibers. Cellulose fibers are also used in several applications such as chemical filter, fiber reinforcement composite, polymer composites, and bio composites.
Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
With the increasing global population, the need for demand for textile industry is growing which is augmenting the cellulose fiber market size. As cellulose fibers are skin-friendly, environment-friendly, and biodegradable in nature, the market is likely to foster in the coming years. Significant consumption from the textile industry owing to its benefits is anticipated to fuel the market growth in the coming years. With the augmenting demand for body adjustable, environmental-friendly, and bio-degradable clothing and fabrics from the textile industry, a healthy growth has been identified in the global cellulose fiber industry. Moreover, with the rising disposable income levels of the middle-class population, the market is considered to flourish. Wood pulp being one of the key raw materials used in the production of cellulose fibers, influences the market to a great extent. With increasing global warming across the world, the demand for biodegradable cellulose fiber has increased, further contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the proliferation of new market entrants may enhance the global cellulose fiber market positively.
On the flip side, strict government initiatives for the protection of existing forests is considered to slowdown the global growth to a certain extent. Additionally, cost of cellulose fibers has been a major factor restraining the market growth as the prices of raw materials required to manufacture cellulose fibers are dynamic and changes continuously, thereby affecting the market growth. Moreover, lack of skilled people along with advanced machinery required in production are hindering the market growth.
