Antimicrobial Textile Market

Milliken & Company (US) and Unitika Ltd. (Japan) are the Leading Players in the Antimicrobial Textile Market

The global market size of antimicrobial textile is projected to grow from USD 9.5 billion in 2019 to USD 12.3 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during the forecast period. The primary driving factor for the market is the use of antimicrobial textile in prevention against Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). Textiles are a major source of spreading infectious diseases as they are in constant exposure outside atmosphere and can retain moisture, which makes it suitable for the growth of harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Rising awareness regarding health and hygiene has led to an increase in demand for antimicrobial textiles in the manufacture of apparels as well.

The leading antimicrobial textile manufacturers are Milliken & Company (US), Trevira GmbH (Germany), Thai Acrylic fiber Co. Ltd. (Thailand), Unitika Ltd. (Japan), PurThread Technologies Inc. (US), Lifethreads LLC (US), Vestagen Protective Technologies, Inc. (US), Herculite Inc.(US), Smith and Nephew PLC (UK), and Sinterama (Italy).
