Global Antimicrobial Textiles Market to Reach US$ 18.3 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Recent COVID-19 Outbreak

June 14, 2022 | Chemical & Materials

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Antimicrobial Textiles Market Report by Fabric (Polyester, Polyamide, Cotton, and Others), Active Agents (Metal and Metallic Salts, Synthetic Organic Compounds, Biobased Agents), Application (Medical Textiles, Home Textiles, Apparels, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global antimicrobial textiles market size reached US$ 11.1 Billion in 2023. Antimicrobial textiles are functionally active textiles that destroy microorganisms and offer protection against bacteria, mold, mildew, and other hazardous microbes. They are manufactured by treating the fabric with a proprietary topical chemical that inhibits the growth of pathogens or using yarns with inherent microscopic antimicrobial functionality. They are durable, environment friendly and can reduce the risk of infection in hospitals or other areas where sanitation is essential. Owing to these properties, antimicrobial textiles are widely utilized in automotive textiles, healthcare facilities, air filters, food packaging, and water purification systems.

Global Antimicrobial Textiles Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing production of metal nanoparticles-based antiviral textiles, including face masks, gloves, and protective suits and shoes, due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. In addition, the rising awareness among individuals regarding personal hygiene and the health risks associated with microorganisms represent another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, sportspersons are nowadays adopting antimicrobial sportswear as they help prevent microbial growth and sweating odor. This, coupled with the rising product adoption in the healthcare industry for manufacturing hospital gowns, patient clothes, curtains, bed covers, bandages, earbuds, scrubs, masks, lab coats, and protective kits, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the growing popularity of antimicrobial winter wear, extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, and the increasing utilization of these textiles in common public areas, including hotels, restaurants, and trains, are some of the other factors creating a favorable market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 18.3 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
