Raw Material: Development of develop sustainable textile solutions using bio-based feedstock to reduce dependency on fossil fuels

The textile industry comprises a diverse range of raw materials, which are pivotal in determining fabrics' quality, functionality, and aesthetics. Chemical fibers are synthetic fibers created through advanced chemical processes using polymers derived from petroleum-based chemicals or natural cellulose. These fibers can be divided into two main subcategories: synthetic fibers, such as nylon, polyester, acrylic, and polypropylene, and regenerated cellulosic fibers, including viscose rayon, lyocell, modal, and acetate. Cotton is a natural fiber largely produced across the globe from cotton plants' seed hair. Its predominant characteristic features include high absorbency levels, making it skin-friendly, softness, breathability, and adaptability to different climates, both hot & cold. Cotton yarns are widely used for producing apparel fabrics such as shirts, T-shirts & dresses. Silk is a natural protein fiber harvested from the cocoons of silk-producing caterpillars - primarily Bombyx mori. Silk has been highly valued for centuries due to its luxurious feel, natural sheen, excellent drape, and strong insulating properties. It is also lightweight, hypoallergenic, and can absorb moisture, making it comfortable in warm and cool climates. Wool is a versatile natural fiber acquired mainly from sheep fleece through sustainable shearing. Other animal sources contributing to global wool production include alpacas, goats, rabbits, and camels. Moreover, wool's unique structure provides excellent insulation by trapping air between its fibers while being breathable at the same time. It also possesses inherent flame-resistant qualities without any added chemicals, making it suitable for various applications, including apparel and home furnishings. Market has witnessed development of range of sustainable sportswear made from Merino wool blending performance with environmental consciousness.

Application: Increasing demand for improved and eco-friendly textiles from fashion industry

The fashion and clothing industry holds a significant share of the textile market, driven by consumer preferences for high-quality fabrics, fashionable designs, and sustainable materials. Key players in this subcategory produce apparel and other products, including handbags, focusing on trendy styles while prioritizing comfort, durability and consumers' changing needs. The household segment is another important component of the textile market that includes products such as bedding linen, towels, curtains, upholstery textiles, and carpets. This sector is primarily need-based; however, evolving trends influence consumers' preferences for specific materials or designs. In recent years, there has been a growing preference for organic textiles that are free from harmful chemicals due to increasing health concerns among consumers globally. As a response to the 2022 global pandemic, manufacturers also introduced textiles with antimicrobial treatments, which became popular for use in household items, such as beddings and towels. Technical textiles are specialized fabrics designed for specific applications requiring high-performance materials. These include protective clothing (fire-resistant or bulletproof), medical textiles (surgical masks, gowns), automotive textiles (airbags, seat belts), geotextiles (soil reinforcement), and many other industrial uses. In recent news from 2023, regulatory bodies around the world emphasized the importance of standardizing technical textile products to ensure their reliability and performance across different industries. As a result, there was a surge in partnerships between textile manufacturers and research institutes to develop innovative solutions catering to diverse needs. One notable development from 2022 was the increased demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) due to the ongoing pandemic. Manufacturers ramped up their production capacities to meet these requirements while also focusing on developing advanced materials for improved protection.
