Lyocell is a manmade fiber, it is a form of rayon which consists of cellulose fiber made from dissolving pulp, better known in the United States under the company Lenzing AG with the brand Tencel. Lyocell is created by a solvent spinning technique, and cellulose that undergoes no significant chemical change. Lyocell is extremely strong fabric which is used for automotive filters, abrasive materials, ropes, bandages and protective suiting material. It is primarily found in garment industry, particularly in women's clothing.
Lyocell fibers are mostly available in woven fabric and for some of the products non woven fabric are used. Lyocell textiles are created by the use of nanotechnology in a closed-loop process that recovers or decomposes all solvents and emissions. It is 100% biodegradable.
Lyocell fibers are eco-friendly and biodegradable which has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than other fabric. This has boosted the global lyocell fibers market.
Lyocell fibers are durable and wrinkle resistant. This can be major driver for global lyocell fibers market.
Lyocell fibers are more expensive than other eco fabric alternatives. This has downstream the global lyocell fibers market.
Lyocell fabric has relatively low surface energy, which makes it difficult for dyes. This is the major restraint for global lyocell fabric market.
By application type
The Lyocell fibers is segmented based on application type such as medical, electrical, filtration, apparels, automotives and others. Apparels segment is the major user for lyocell fibers due to its increased benefits over conventional fabrics.
By fabric type
The Lyocell fibers are segmented based on fabric type such as woven and non woven fabric. Woven fabrics have the major market for lyocell fibers as it is mostly used by manufacturer due to its biodegradable nature.
The manufacturers in the U.S. have increased apparel exports which is driving the industry in recent years. Mexico represents a major market for textiles. Some apparel brands have expanded their business in Mexico which increased the lyocell fiber product demand. The lyocell fiber market demand is anticipated to rise in Europe, due to the presence of numerous textile industries in France, Germany, and the UK.
The competition in the industry is driven by new product launches and strategic collaborations in the market.
