Post Recycled-fiber Market: Overview
Post-consumer waste is referred to fibrous products that are discarded after their service life. Finished paper products such as paper, paperboard, corrugated boxes, old newspapers, old magazines, mixed waste paper, tabulating cards, used cordage, and fibrous wastes from retail stores, office buildings, and homes are commonly treated as post-consumer waste. Donated & discarded apparels, some plastic items such as plastic bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate, nylon from fishing nets are major post-consumer waste that can be reclaimed and recycled for further use. These post-consumer waste materials undergo mechanical and chemical processes to form post recycled fibers.
Post Recycled-fiber Market: Drivers & Restrains
The global post recycled-fiber market is primarily driven by the increase in demand for these fibers in the textile and paper industry. Increase in volume of post-consumer waste, gaining popularity of recycled fibers, and rise in government initiatives to curb consumer plastic waste is projected to drive the global post recycled-fiber market.
Post Recycled-fiber Market: Key Segments
In terms of fiber type, the post recycled-fiber market can be divided into polymer, cotton, and others. Post recycled polymer-fiber segment is further segmented into nylon, polyester, pet, and, others. The polymer segment held significant share of the global market in 2017. PET is a valuable commodity which does not lose its characteristics in any substantial way, and hence can be repeatedly re-processed to make high value added products. Moreover, post-consumer PET products are widely converted to 100% recycled polyester fibers and yarns. PET does not lose its characteristics in any substantial way, and can thus be repeatedly re-processed to make high value added products. Post recycled cotton-fiber can be generally defined as converting cotton fabric into cotton fiber that can be reused in textile products such as garments, upholstery, towels, and household items. Increase in usage of post recycled-fiber in textile industry is estimated to drive the global market during the forecast period.
Based on end-use industry, the post recycled-fiber market can be segregated into paper & packaging, textile, consumer goods, and others. Textile segment accounted for major share of the global post recycled-fiber market in 2017. Recycled materials used in textile and apparel products are procured throughout the textile and apparel supply chain using post-consumer collection methods. The post-consumer processed waste can be respun into yarns that are woven or knitted into fabrics, and then used in apparel, sheeting, and upholstery. Increase in usage of used plastic water bottles and fishing nets in manufacturing filaments and yarns in textiles and apparels products is anticipated to boost the demand for post recycled-fibers.
Post Recycled-fiber Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of geography, the post recycled-fiber market can be split into North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Europe constitutes substantial share of the global post recycled-fiber market in 2017 owing to the presence of large number of paper and textile manufacturers, processors, and recyclers. Stringent regulations imposed by EU commission and US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) pertaining to curtailment of consumer plastic waste and carbon emissions is anticipated to boost the demand for post recycled-fibers in textile and paper industries. The market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the significant growth in industrialization in countries such as China and India. Textile industries in south Asian countries such India, Bangladesh and, Pakistan is projected to propel the demand for post recycled-fibers in the near future. North America constituted key share of the global market in 2017, led by the rise in demand for post recycled-fibers in the paper & pulp industry in the region.
