The global eco fibers market was worth USD 39.02 Billion in 2014, and is projected to register a CAGR of 11.46% between 2015 and 2020. In this study, 2013 has been considered as the historical year and 2014 as the base year for estimating the market size of eco fibers. Eco fibers are produced from either natural materials such as organic cotton, hemp, jute, or synthetic materials such as polyethylene, polyester, or polypropylene which are recycled to convert them into eco fibers.

Different secondary sources such as company websites, encyclopedia, textile reports, organic exchange reports, and databases have been used to identify and collect information that is useful for this extensive commercial study of the global market. The primary sources, which include experts from related industries, have been interviewed to verify and collect critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the market. The top-down approach has been implemented to validate the market size in terms of value and volume. With the data triangulation procedure and validation of data through primaries, the exact values of the overall parent market size and individual market sizes have been determined and confirmed in this study.

Eco Fibers Market

The market has a diversified and established ecosystem of its upstream players such as the raw material suppliers, and the downstream stakeholders such as manufacturers, vendors, end users, and government organizations. There are no specific raw material suppliers for this market as raw materials are supplied to the manufacturers through a network of farmers, middlemen, and authorized distributors whether it is organic cotton or post-consumer PET wastes.

This study answers several questions like which market segments to focus in next two to five years for prioritizing the efforts and investments. The stakeholders include the eco fiber manufacturers such as Lenzing AG (Austria), Grasim Industries Limited (India), Teijin Ltd. (Japan), and US Fibers (U.S.), among others, and, associations and certification agencies such as Global Organic Textile Standard, Textile Exchange, and others. The government organizations and universities are also critical stakeholders for this study.

The global eco fibers market size, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 74.65 Billion by 2020, and is projected to record a CAGR of 11.46% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global market is projected to reach 21,984.9 kilotons by 2020, at a CAGR of 10.38% during the forecast period. The increasing awareness among the common population about environment conservation and sustainability, and increasing demand from the emerging economies due to the growing lifestyle requirements and infrastructural needs are key factors for the growth of the global market.

In terms of types, the market for organic fibers is projected to register the fastest growth among other types followed by regenerated fibers segment in the global market. The collective growth in the use of organic fibers is due to the increase in the awareness about use of eco-friendly products and environmental regulations, which in turn puts emphasis on the use of efficient and environment friendly techniques in the production of fibers.

Industrial application is the fastest-growing segment in the global eco fibers market. Recycled nylon fibers are highly preferred for industrial applications. The growing demand from core industries such as chemical, automotive, renewable power is the key factor attributing to the fast growth rate of the industrial application in the eco fibers application market.

The Asia-Pacific region, being the largest consumer of eco fibers, is also projected to register a high CAGR of 13.05%, in terms of value between 2015 and 2020. This growth is majorly driven due to increase in eco fibers demand in various application sectors such as textile, fashion, and export industries. These industrial sectors, including, industrial, and household have led to the growth of eco fibers as a substitute of virgin fibers in this region.

Though the market is gaining importance at a fast pace, but few factors act as a bottleneck toward the growth of eco fibers in the global fibers market. The costs associated with the cultivation, processing, and manufacturing of eco fibers is high and maintaining the standards and limits specified by the certified textile associations are difficult to maintain in both procedural and monetary terms.

Lenzing AG (Austria), Grasim Industries Limited (India), Teijin Ltd (Japan), and US Fibers (U.S.) are the dominant market players in the global market. Diverse product portfolio and strategically positioned R&D centers, continuous adoption of development strategies, and technological advancements are a few factors that are responsible for strengthening the market position of these companies in the market. They have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies such as expansions, merger & acquisitions, new product launches & product development to enhance the current market scenario of eco fibers. This is expected to help the eco fibers market evolve in further applications which would in turn help them to expand their global reach.
