Dublin, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Lyocell Fiber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global lyocell fiber market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Lyocell fiber is a type of rayon produced from bleached wood pulp, also known as dissolving pulp, which contains cellulose. First developed in 1972, this fiber is manufactured using the process of dry jet-wet spinning. Lyocell fiber exhibits similar properties as other cellulose fibers, including ramie, linen, viscose rayon and cotton. It is lightweight, absorbent, breathable, soft, wrinkle-resistant, durable, capable of replicating a range of textures like silk, leather and suede, and can also be dyed in various colors. Nowadays, manufacturers are adopting natural practices to produce lyocell and eliminating the use of chemicals in the production to obtain organic certification.

Lyocell fabric is utilized in a wide range of industries, including fashion, textile, medical, and paper and pulp. Due to its versatility, lyocell fiber is used as a substitute for cotton and silk to make sportswear, shirts, bed linens, denim, T-shirts, trousers and towels. Its high absorbency profile makes it an ideal material for medical dressings. Apart from this, with the rising environmental concerns, the demand for lyocell fiber is escalating across the globe. Its main component, cellulose, is obtained from well-managed forests and its production does not generate by-products that are harmful to the health or the environment. Moreover, technological advancements have led to the manufacturing of lyocell fiber using advanced N-methyl morpholine-N-oxide (NMMO) technology, which is a simple, resource-conserving, and environment-friendly means of regenerating cellulose fiber. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global lyocell fiber market to reach a value of US$ 1.6 Billion by 2026.
