Global Cellulose Fiber Market: Overview
Cellulose fibers are made up of esters or ether of the cellulose. These are generally obtained from leaves of plants or wood or the bark or other plant-based material. These fibers are a compound of lignin and hemicelluloses. Some fibers consist of varying percentages of these compounds that are responsible for different mechanical properties. The main application of the cellulose fibers is clothing in the textile industry. However, it is also used in different applications such as fiber reinforcement composite, chemical filter, biocomposites and polymer composites. Some of the key applications of the cellulose fibers are fabrics, clothing, and spun yarn.
Global Cellulose Fiber Market: Growth Factors
Increasing demand for cellulose fibers mainly from textile industry may foster the global cellulose fiber market growth in future. In addition, owing to its properties such as skin-friendly, biodegradable, and environment-friendly in nature, the growth in the market is expected to boost in the coming years. Increasing the disposable income of the middle-class people drives the global cellulose fiber market. Moreover, significant consumption from the textile industries may influence the global market. Wood pulp is the key raw material used in the production of cellulose fibers, which is another major influential driver of the global market. However, the proliferation of new players entering the global cellulose fiber market may enhance the global cellulose fiber market in a positive way. Conversely, increasing government initiatives for the protection of existing forests may hinder the global growth to some extent.
