Projected Growth in Lyocell Fabric Production to Boost the Growth of Lyocell Fabric Market

The global Lyocell Fabric Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.26 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Lyocell fabric is a cellulosic fiber made from wood pulp through a solvent spinning process. Lyocell fabric has moisture wicking properties, high absorbency, and quick drying abilities. It is soft, lightweight and durable. These properties make lyocell fabric suitable for making clothing apparel like t-shirts, dresses, pants, as well as home furnishing products like bed sheets and towels. The low impact production process and biodegradable nature of lyocell fabric is gaining popularity in the textile industry for its sustainability benefits.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the lyocell fabric market is the rising production of lyocell fabric. Major lyocell fabric producers are expanding their production capacities to cater to the growing demand. For instance, in 2021, Lenzing AG announced plans to invest €125 million in making its production lines at its facility in Heiligenkreuz, Austria more sustainable and efficient. This is expected to increase the facility’s lyocell production capacity by 50%. Similarly, in 2022, Aditya Birla Group inaugurated a new lyocell spun yarn manufacturing facility in India, doubling its lyocell staple fiber capacity to 60 KTPA. The increasing production of lyocell fabrics by major players is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.
