November 14, 2022 | Retail

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Asia Pacific Textile Recycling Market Report by Product Type (Cotton Recycling, Wool Recycling, Polyester & Polyester Fibre Recycling, Nylon & Nylon Fibre Recycling, and Others), Textile Waste (Pre-consumer Textile, Post-consumer Textile), Distribution Channel (Online Channel, Retail & Departmental Stores), End Use (Apparel, Industrial, Home Furnishings, Non-woven, and Others), and Country 2024-2032”, finds that the Asia Pacific textile recycling market size reached US$ 1.8 Billion in 2023. Textile recycling refers to the procedure of reusing and reprocessing old craps, clothing, and fibrous waste materials. Usually, these materials are recovered from tires, furniture, carpets, clothes, footwear, and other non-durable goods, including sheets and towels. In recent years, textile recycling has gained popularity across the Asia Pacific region due to its extensive adoption in numerous end-use industries, such as home furnishings, apparel, and other industrial sectors, including automotive, retail, mining, construction, and building.

Asia Pacific Textile Recycling Market Trends:

Textile recycling offers various environmental benefits, such as reducing dependence on virgin fibers, minimizing land and water pollution, curbing utilization of chemical dyes, and optimum energy and water consumption. As a result, with the rising environmental concerns among individuals, there has been a significant shift in the consumers’ preferences toward recycled textiles in the Asia Pacific region. Other than this, the increasing production of polyester and synthetic fabrics is resulting in high emission levels of greenhouse gases, consequently escalating the need for recycled fabrics across the region. Besides this, the rising number of collection bins for cloth storage, along with the growing awareness about the importance of recycling old clothes, is creating a positive market outlook. In line with this, key players are undertaking various informative initiatives for picking up post-consumer clothing materials by installing cloth bins in public areas, including parks, shopping malls, parking spaces, walkaways, and other high-visibility locations. Furthermore, various technological innovations and the increasing penetration of automation in the recycled textile industry are propelling the market growth. Moreover, the introduction of eco-clothes that are produced from recycled plastics, textiles, and other organic raw materials assists in waste reduction and leads to minimal landfill space and low dependency on virgin resources, including wool and cotton. On account of these factors, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 2.2 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 2.6% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
