Selbyville, Delaware, Nov. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to a recent report by Global Market Insights Inc., the global antimicrobial textiles market is poised to exceed USD 29 billion by 2032.

Rising infectious diseases will propel the demand for antimicrobial textiles across home and medical applications. In February 2022, a group of researchers from the University of British Columbia designed a liquid coating compatible with almost any fabric to reduce the infectivity of COVID-19 by up to 90%. Antimicrobial treatments are cost-effective and easy to perform in textile production. With antimicrobial additives, these fabrics ensure protection against a wide variety of pathogens. They are widely used by manufacturers of hospital scrubs, sportswear, workwear, technical fabrics, and non-woven bedding.

Antimicrobial textiles market share from polyamide fabric is anticipated to witness over 6% CAGR between 2023-2032. Polyamide is used in the production of technical textiles with applications in automotive and road construction businesses. Increasing consumer preference for eco-friendly products has led to recent advancements in bio-based polyamides. Automotive companies are seeking lightweight materials for enhancing the efficiency and design flexibility of vehicles.

Apparel applications is projected to expand at over 6.5% CAGR from 2023-2032. Antimicrobial agents are used for making apparel such as jackets, sportswear, caps, fleece, and workwear among others. They help reduce the discomfort caused by the foul odor produced by microbial growth on apparel, which also increases the risk of skin infections. Textiles made from natural organic fibers such as linen, wool, and cotton are more prone to microbial attack. Infection by microbes increases the risk of cross-infection with pathogens. Antimicrobial textiles have therefore gained notable demand across the sportswear sector due to the growing need for sweat-proof fabric for athletic use.
