The growing demand for biodegradable, environmental friendly and skin friendly fabrics and clothing from the textile industry has been driving the global market for cellulose fibers. Shift towards replacing petrochemical fibers with cellulose fibers from major end-use industries has also been one of the major factors propelling the market growth. However, volatility in wood pulp prices, which is a major raw material for cellulose fiber production, coupled with regulatory issues due to growing environmental concerns are major factors that have been inhibiting market growth. Consequently, the world is shifting focus towards producing cellulose fibers through renewable sources and providing biodegradable solutions to various industries' demand.
