Global Natural Fibers Markets Report 2021: Revenues for Natural Fibers 2020-2030 by Fiber Types, Markets and Region

·4-min read

Dublin, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Natural Fibers 2021" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

There are global concerns regarding the use of non-renewable materials in manufacturing, and increasing environmental legislation.

There is pressure, both consumer and regulatory, for products that are more environmentally friendly and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. As a result, the use of natural fibers in products and composites will continue to grow as major contributors towards a biobased economy.

Fibers derived from bio-based sources such as plant-based (ligno) cellulosics and animal-based protein are termed natural fibers. This includes natural cellulosic fibers such as cotton, jute, sisal, coir, flax, hemp, abaca, ramie, etc.) and protein-based fibers such as wool and silk.

They possess advantages over synthetic fibres including widespread availability, low cost, low density, acceptable modulus-weight ratio, high acoustic damping, low manufacturing energy consumption, low carbon footprint and biodegradability.

Report contents include:

  • Market drivers for natural fibers.

  • Market trends.

  • Global revenues for natural fibers 2020-2030, by fiber types, market and region.

  • Technology challenges.

  • COVID-19 market impact.

  • Analysis of types of natural fibers including plant fibers, animal fibers including alternative leather, wool, silk fiber and down and polysaccharides.

  • Markets for natural fibers, including composites, aerospace, automotive, construction & building, sports & leisure, textiles, consumer products and packaging.

  • Profiles of 143 natural fiber companies. Companies profiled include Ananas Anam, BASF, Bast Fiber Technologies Inc., Kelheim Fibres GmbH, BComp, Circular Systems, Evrnu, Natural Fiber Welding, Icytos and many more.
