North America lyocell fiber market is largely driven by the increasing product demand for apparels and home textiles in the region. The product holds high strength, particularly in wet state, it is highly durable, versatile and has 50% more moisture absorption than cotton.
It is a manmade fibre extracted from the wood pulp of sustainable tree farms. Lyocell textiles are fabricated by using nanotechnology in a closed-loop process which retrieves or decomposes all emissions and solvents. The mounting constraints on synthetic fiber producers for the preparation of cellulose fibers in order to suppress petrochemical fibers has further stimulated industry players in North America to invest in R&D activities for technological advancements. Rising awareness towards the use of sterilized products is expected to drive the lyocell market growth over the forecast time frame.
