Report ID: 131989 3300 Chemical & Material 377 236 Pages 5 (47)

Market Overview:

The global lyocell market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for lyocell fiber from various applications, such as apparels, home textiles, and others. Lyocell fiber offers several advantages over other natural fibers and synthetic fibers, which is fueling its demand in the market. Some of these advantages include high absorbency, breathability, softness, drapeability, and wrinkle resistance. These factors are driving the demand for lyocell fiber from various end-use industries across the globe. The global lyocell market by type is segmented into normal lyocell fiber and crosslinked lyocell fiber. The normal lyocell fiber segment dominates the global market with a share of more than 90%. This can be attributed to its high absorbency properties that make it suitable for use in various applications such as apparels and home textiles. Crosslinked LYOCELL® Fiber has superior performance characteristics compared with traditional cellulosic fibers like cotton or viscose rayon; it has better wet strength retention (WSR), lower shrinkage values (LSR), higher tenacity (UTS) values at equivalent levels of elongation at break (%EAB).

Global Lyocell Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Lyocell is a type of rayon fiber made from cellulose, derived from wood pulp. Lyocell has many advantages over other natural and synthetic fibers. It is strong, yet soft; absorbent, but wrinkle-resistant; and cool to the touch. Lyocell also dyes well and has a pleasant feel against the skin.

Normal Lyocell Fiber:

Lyocell, also known as wood fiber or cellulose, is a type of rayon. It is manufactured from the pulp of wood by treating the wood with chemicals and heat. The resulting fibers are called lyocell fibers or cellulose fibers. These are extensively used in apparel textiles due to their superior properties such as high tensile strength, abrasion resistance and easy care which makes them suitable for use in sportswear fabrics too.

Crosslinked Lyocell Fiber:

Lyocell, also known as cross-linked lyo fiber or just lyo, is a type of rayon. It is manufactured by treating cellulose with sodium hydroxide and then washing the product to obtain high molecular weight fibers that are mainly used in textile applications. LYocell fibers have superior properties such as quick drying & good hand feel along with excellent drape & shape retention compared to other synthetic fibers available in the market.

Application Insights:

Apparels was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Apparel manufacturing is one of the most important sectors contributing to overall textile industry. Lyocell based apparels are highly durable, hypo-allergic, anti-static and more importantly, they are cost effective as compared with other fabrics like polyester or cotton. These factors are likely to drive demand from apparel sector over the coming years.

Home textiles segment accounted for a share of 15% in terms of volume in 2017 on account of its high durability and low maintenance requirement as compared with other fabrics like cotton or polyester. Moreover, growing awareness regarding energy efficiency coupled with rising concerns regarding global warming due to increase in carbon emissions has driven consumers towards lyocell home textiles products which further supports market growth at a macro level.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of a large number of manufacturers coupled with increasing demand from countries such as China, India, Japan and Indonesia is anticipated to drive growth. In addition, growing awareness regarding environmental sustainability along with rising disposable income levels are likely to contribute toward industry growth in this region.

The product has received favorable reviews from customers for its high strength-to-density ratio along with excellent moisture resistance properties. It finds application in various end-use industries including apparel owing to its superior strength against abrasion and compression set while maintaining flexibility required by the consumers during use. The product also exhibits good colorfastness under different conditions which makes it suitable for use in children wear clothing as well as bedding products such as blankets, mattress covers etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the apparel industry for sustainable and eco-friendly fabrics
  • Growing popularity of lyocell as a performance fabric with excellent moisture management and breathability properties
  • Rising awareness about the health benefits of lyocell fabric, such as its ability to reduce skin irritation and allergies
  • Proliferation of innovative lyocell products in the market, such as Tencel® Denim and Lyocell Air™ Fabric
  • Steady growth in global population, which is driving demand for more clothing and textile products
