Global Staple Fiber Market Size is Estimated to Reach USD 281.68 billion by 2031, Growing at a CAGR of 3.8%: Straits Research

Global consumer preferences for eco-friendly items have increased demand for sustainable textiles. One of the most extensively grown and utilized staple fibers in the textile industry is cotton.

New York, United States, Dec. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Staple fibers are short fibers made of either natural or synthetic materials. Any fiber that is usable, constrained, or has a finite length is referred to as a staple fiber. Even though the source is the same, the length of the fiber varies both within and across types obtained from different sources. Staple fibers need to be spun or twisted together to form a long, unbroken strand of yarn. In their staple form, they can also be utilized to make non-woven or felted fabrics. Since staple fiber is essential to the creation of clothing and garments, rising clothing consumption and the expansion of the fashion industry are projected to increase the need for staple fibers on a global scale. The textile sector is benefited from rising per capita income and shifting fashion trends, which in turn will drive the staple fiber market's expansion over the forecast period.

Consumer Preference for Eco-Friendly Textiles Drives the Global Market

According to Straits Research, “The global staple fibers market size was valued at USD 201.37 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 281.68 billion by 2031, growing with a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period (2023–2031).” The need for sustainable textiles has expanded as a result of global customer preferences for eco-friendly products. Cotton is one of the most widely cultivated and used staple fibers in the textile industry. It is recognized as a versatile fiber that may be used to manufacture apparel for hot weather and has properties like cooling, absorbency, and softness. The two most popular sustainable fibers are cotton and wool. Sheep generate wool, which has insulating properties and is ideal for use in the creation of knitted warm apparel.

As a result of increased investment in the textile industry and a growth in demand for environmentally friendly textile materials, the market for staple fibers is expanding globally.
