  • Published | 23 October 2019

DuPont Biomaterials and Lenzing have collaborated for the production of natural and organic fabric collection which stimulate the global sustainable fabric market in the forecast period

Global: Fiber firm DuPont Biomaterials and Lenzing partnered to launch a new sustainable fabric collection on materials derived from nature, aims at creating resilient, stretchy fabrics. The collaboration blends DuPont Sorona fiber and Tencel Lyocell and Tencel Modal fibers from Lenzing, to give soft garments greater resilience in a stretch, recovery, and dimensional stability. The newly certified mill-collection will expand the future of sustainable textiles for designers to use in various applications, including active wear, ready-to-wear, intimate apparel, and denim. This fiber will allow more apparel brands the opportunity to weave sustainable comfort into their products and achieve the ultimate blend of comfort, eco-efficiency, and performance.

According to BlueWeave Consulting, the rising awareness regarding sustainable fabric production amongst fabric manufacturers will drive the global sustainable fabrics market in the upcoming periods. Sustainable fabrics contain organic fabrics, regenerated fabrics, and recycled fabrics. To reduce the environmental impact of fabrics, sustainable fabrics considered by most of the textile manufacturers. Organic cotton is the most commonly used organic fabric in the world. Regenerated fabrics are made by dissolving cellulose from tree wood in chemicals and forming fiber using the viscose method. Cotton, hemp, is mostly used as a source of cellulose. Different types of regenerated fabrics include lyocell, linen, modal, alginate, and crabyon.

Recycled fabrics are manufactured using 100% post-consumer recycled materials. Recycled cotton is a more sustainable alternative to both conventional and organic cotton. It has the potential to help reduce water and energy consumption, as well as help keep cotton clothes out of the landfill. The increasing demand for sustainable fabrics from the emerging economies attributable to the growing lifestyle requirements and infrastructural needs will influence the renewable fabrics industry.

According to BlueWeave consulting’s upcoming report, Titled- “Global Sustainable Fabrics Market, by Product Type (Organic, Regenerated, Recycled, Natural), by Application (Clothing, Furnishing, Medical, Others), and by Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa); Size and Forecast, 2015-2025”- ”- Global Sustainable Fabrics market is anticipated to grow with a substantial CAGR over the forecast period 2019-2025, owing to increasing demand for organic cotton-based clothing’s and rayon clothing’s across the globe. Additionally, the increasing awareness among the common population about environment conservation and sustainability will propel the global Sustainable Fabrics market in the future timeline.

Moreover, favorable regulations for manufacturing bio-based products coupled with stringent environmental regulations on synthetic polymers will bolster the global Sustainable Fabrics market in the next few years.
