Published on Jan 21, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Textile Recycling Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global textile recycling market size reached US$ 5.02 Billion in 2021. Textile recycling is the process of recovering old garments and other textiles for reuse and material recovery. It includes donating, collecting, sorting, processing, and transportation of used garments, rags, and other recovered materials to end users. It assists in avoiding the use of virgin fibers, reducing consumption of energy and water, generating less pollution, and minimizing the need for dyes.  

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 Textile Recycling Market Trends:

At present, there is a rise in the demand for textile recycling on account of the growing environmental concerns and increasing awareness about the detrimental impact of waste incineration, heavy industrial discharges from textile mills, and depletion of silk and wool. This, along with the burgeoning textile industry across the globe, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, there is a rise in public awareness about the benefits of recycling old clothes. This, coupled with the increasing number of collection bins for cloth sorting at parking spaces, parks, shopping malls, and walkways, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, several recycling companies are launching awareness campaigns about textile recycling and introducing door-to-door pickup programs for old garments. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 5.86 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 2.6% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
