Market Overview:

The global bio-based synthetic fibers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for bio-based synthetic fibers from various applications, such as clothing, protective areas, bags and suitcases, and others. In terms of type, PLA (polylactic acid) is expected to lead the global bio-based synthetic fibers market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as biodegradability and environmental friendliness.

Global Bio-based Synthetic Fibers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Bio-based synthetic fibers are made from renewable biomass materials such as plant starch, cellulose, or lignin. They can be used to make fabrics, insulation, and other materials. Bio-based synthetic fibers have many advantages over traditional petroleum-based synthetic fibers. They are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. They also have a lower environmental impact than traditional fiber production methods.


Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a biodegradable polymer produced from renewable resources, such as corn starch and sugar. It has a high melting point and good mechanical properties like strength, stiffness, toughness. PLA can be used to produce bio-based synthetic fibers that are stronger than glass fiber or carbon fiber. These fibers are lighter than those made from petroleum-based plastics such as PETG or HDPE and have similar chemical & thermal resistance properties of polyester or nylon fabrics.


PTT is a chemical that acts as an intermediate in the production of bio-based synthetic fibers. It is also used to produce specialty chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Application Insights:

The clothing application segment led the global market in 2017. The demand is projected to be fueled by growing textile industry and increasing disposable income of consumers. Increasing use of bio-based synthetic fibers in manufacturing apparel, such as t-shirts, polo shirts, tracksuits and other sports apparel is expected to drive the demand further.

The protective areas application segment accounted for a significant share in 2017 owing to its high strength against abrasion and impact resistance properties compared with natural animal fiber products used worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the dominant regional market in 2017 and is expected to maintain its position over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global population and has been witnessing rapid urbanization, which has resulted in an increasing demand for protective clothing, such as bulletproof vests, helmets, safety shoes among others. Increasing disposable income coupled with growing consumer awareness regarding bio-based products is anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

North America accounted for a significant share of revenue in 2017 owing to early adoption of bio-based synthetic fibers across various applications by manufacturers located within this region. Rising concerns regarding product sustainability along with stringent regulations aimed at reducing carbon footprint are projected to further propel product demand within North America during the forecast period.

The European market also held a considerable revenue share in 2017 due to rising environmental concerns pertainingto textiles.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the apparel industry for bio-based synthetic fibers as they are eco-friendly and sustainable.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using bio-based synthetic fibers among consumers.
  • Growing research and development activities in the field of bio-based synthetic fibers that is resulting in new product launches.
  • Proliferation of online retail channels that is aiding in increasing sales of bio-based synthetic fibers products globally.
