The global antimicrobial textiles market size is anticipated to reach around US$ 15,800 Mn by 2027 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of around 6% in terms of revenue during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.
Antimicrobial textiles are textiles with a layer or within a fiber coating containing antimicrobial agents. Across the extrusion or spinning, or by pigments and dyes, antimicrobial agents are applied to the fiber during the finishing process. The antimicrobial agent delivery form is determined on the basis of the manufacturer's budget and judgment. Antimicrobial agents prevent or destroy microorganisms from growing or evolving. Viruses, alges, fungi and bacteria are composed of microorganisms.
The major factors boosting the growth of global antimicrobial textiles market are the growing demand for high-performance, microbial-resistant textiles across an increasing multitude of application areas and technical developments in the manufacturing of such textiles. Due to the rising number of companies on the market, the increased demand has contributed to a growing focus on research and development activities intended to create active ingredients which do not cross or irritate the skin barrier with a strong safety profile. Such innovations may also show significantly positive affect during forecast period on global market for antimicrobial textiles. However, in some of the more popular antimicrobial drugs for manufacturing, the presence of certain environmentally harmful chemicals such as triclosan could in a certain form curb market growth. Stringent standards of sustainability in many global markets for textiles containing antimicrobial products containing these and other harmful chemical compounds are likely to pose tremendous development challenges.
