Industrial hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown for commercial purposes. It is a fast-growing, environment-friendly plant with a low cost of production. In addition to this, industrial hemp is a rich source of nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, essential fatty acids, and trace elements. It is a multipurpose and sustainable crop that can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including rope, paper, clothing, textiles, insulation, paint, biodegradable plastics, food, biofuel, as well as animal feed. It is largely grown for products in the food and beverage industry. However, it can also be used in non-food-based products without employing toxic chemicals, herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Industrial Hemp Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the growing preference for eco-friendly products in thermal insulation, construction materials, fiberglass alternatives, and automotive products. Besides this, the significant development in the automotive industry is propelling the demand for industrial hemp in the manufacturing of automotive body parts that are versatile, eco-friendly, lightweight, and dent-resistant in nature.
