Flax crops that yield white flowers and blue flowers are promptly recognized on account of their product offerings such as stalk, straw, fibers, and seeds. Demand for flax crop is surging at a significant pace in parallel to the increasing demand for fiber and seeds rising from the textile, medical, and food industries.

In addition, technology is playing a pivotal role to ensure a higher yield of flax crops, which is further expected to drive the growth to the global flax crop market in the forthcoming year.

As compared to the cotton fiber, the fiber obtained from flax crop is flexible, lustrous, and soft in nature. As a result, it is extensively used in linen stitching, fishing nets, carpets, and furniture. It also makes an excellent raw material for firefighting hose pipes, water bags, tissue papers, and knapsacks. Demand for high-quality bond papers and currency notes is also fulfilled by these fibers, which is yet another notable growth driver for the flax crop market.

Flax Crop Market – Dynamics

Demand for Eco-friendly Packaging Alternatives to Shift the Focus on Fiber Obtained from Flax Crop

With growing concerns over the health hazards and environmental degradation posed by the utilization of plastic, many brands have started using environmental-friendly packaging materials as a part of effective eco-responsibility. The fiber obtained from flax crops serves as a desirable product for the development of packaging bags and bottles. In addition, they are light-weighted in nature and are biodegradable, which makes them suitable for packaging as compared to plastic. These fibers can even replace the glass bottles for beer bottles and wine spirit. Owing to its promising rate of adoption, the global flax crop market is poised to clock an impressive CAGR in the forthcoming years.

Flax Seeds, Yielded from Flax Crop, are Highly Consumed by Vegans and Vegetarians

Flax seeds are evolving as a super food in the vegetarian and vegan diet, on account of their health-protective properties. A single serving of flax seeds is rich in essential vitamins, fibers, iron, and protein, among others. Since a vegetarian or a vegan diet lacks crucial fats for the body, flax seeds provide omega-3 fatty acids, which controls cholesterol, reduces inflammation, and prevents the growth of tumor in a human body. The plant compounds such as Lignans possess estrogen and antioxidant properties, which is said to reduce the risk of cancer and boost overall health. As a subsequence, this demand for flax seeds will remain highly influential on the size of the global flax crop market.
