 Antimicrobial Textile MARKET OVERVIEW:

Antimicrobial fabrics are made with the aid of chemicals that restrict the growth of the fabric's bacterial microbes. These are in tremendous demand from the healthcare industry as they are used in clinics and hospitals due to hygiene and increased awareness of healthcare. They limit the development of microbes that are also a source of disease transmission. Apart from the healthcare industry, there is a massive demand from the sports industry on the antimicrobial textiles market. Antimicrobial textile development requires treatment with additives during the fabric's intermediate and final production stage. The approach used depends on a multitude of factors, including the actual use of the material, the capability of the producer, and considerations of the budget.


In May 2017, Indorama Ventures PCL Group (IVL), based in Thailand, has consolidated its ownership by acquiring Trevira's remaining 25% shareholding from its former joint venture partner Sinterama SA. With this, Trevira GmbH, a leading European fiber manufacturer, has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of IVL.


The Antimicrobial Textile Market was valued at 9.2 Billion USD in 2019. The market is expected to grow at CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period to reach a valuation of 11.6 Billion USD by 2024.


North America represented the largest share of the Antimicrobial Textile Market, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. It is estimated that the key players are concentrated in the regions of the US, Canada, and Mexico in North America. Increasing consumer awareness of disease spreads led to a demand for better quality material in terms of health and hygiene maintenance, which would drive the region's textile antimicrobial market. Over the past few years, Asia Pacific has emerged as one of the most essential markets. Asia Pacific's regional market posted the highest volume and value growth and was the target of technological advances.


Significant factors which have helped drive the Antimicrobial Textile Market forward are-

  • Increasing understanding of hospital-related diseases and better healthcare practices is expected to fuel demand for antimicrobial textiles because they have the inherent capacity to limit the growth of disease-causing microorganisms
  • Increasing living standards, coupled with increased disposable income and awareness of nutrition, are expected to increase global demand for these textiles
  • Essential lifestyle changes in the Asia Pacific and Latin America's developing countries are likely to stimulate the use of antimicrobial textiles over the forecast period
  • The increasing penetration of antimicrobial fabrics in the global textile market is due to the growing number of long-lasting and healthy antimicrobial finishes
  • The availability of chemicals such as triclosan commonly used in antimicrobial products for industrial operations can, to some degree, impede the market growth

 The factors holding the Antimicrobial Textile Market back include-

  • Strict environmental regulations on the use of antimicrobials made by harmful chemicals can challenge the growth of the global market
  • Raw material price fluctuations will further hamper this market's boom

 High demand from the wound care industry, which includes products such as non-implantable goods and products for healthcare and hygiene, may boost the market growth. The increasing number of hospitals and government initiatives aimed at raising awareness of first aid kits are expected to increase demand over the forecast period.

  1. Antimicrobial Textile Market by Region
  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Middle East and Africa
  • Latin America


  • Synthetic organic compounds are cheaper than metal & metal salts and active agents based on chemistry. Synthetic organic compounds include quaternary ammonium compounds, triclosan, polyhexamethylenebiguanides. Many compounds such as triclosan and PHMB are banned in some parts of the world, which may adversely affect synthetic organic compounds production. Such compounds' high efficiency against a wide range of microbes is expected to drive the antimicrobial fabric market.
  • The use of antimicrobial fiber is expected to be the main sub-segment in the apparel segment. Such textiles come into close contact with skin, increasing the likelihood of infection. In addition, these textiles are exposed to several atmospheres that lead to increased exposure to harmful microbes and become an infection carrier. The use of antimicrobial textiles in hospitals is vital to reduce the dangers of such a widespread disease outbreak.
