silk Market value and growth

silk market size was close to USD 19.7 billion by revenue at the end of 2020 and is estimated to rise at a current CAGR of about 8% to reach a total of USD 28.71 billion by 2025.

silk Market Overview

Silk is a natural protein fiber majorly made out of fibroin and is obtained from particular insect larvae to form cocoons. The process of making silk by cultivating the silkworms is generally known as sericulture. Silk is majorly produced by the larvae of insects that are in the process of completing metamorphosis, but a few insects like web spinners and raspy crickets produce silk during their lives. The shining texture of silk is owing to the triangular prism-like figure of the silk fiber that helps silk cloth to refract incoming light at many angles, thereby producing various colors. Apart from the textile market, silk also finds application in medical and cosmetics.

The silk market needs less investment as it does not require complicated machines and equipment for its production. It is more labor-intensive when compared to the other complex industries. These factors boost the expansion of the global silk market. High demand from textile, cosmetic, and medical business make way for development opportunities in the silk market. Nevertheless, the high prices of raw silk mainly restrain the global silk business.

Market Segmentation:

By type:

  • Mulberry
  • Tussar
  • Eri silk 

The mulberry silk sector led the global silk market on the basis of value and volume and is estimated to maintain its lead in the next five years. Tussar silk sector is the second-biggest type of silk employed after mulberry silk. 

By application:

  • Textile
  • Cosmetics
  • Medical

Drivers and Restraints:

The enhancing quality of silk is estimated to increase the demand for mulberry silk and thereby drive the global silk market towards prosperity. Because silk has a crucial application in the textile market, the fast-expanding textile business mutually assists in the global silk market expansion. Development in sericulture technology has a direct effect on the silk market; therefore, it acts as a significant driver to the global silk market. The rapidly increasing fashion industry around the world is equally creating a growth opportunity for the silk business and the players within the market. The expanding applications of silk in sectors like medical and healthcare are also promoting sales in the global silk market. Cosmetics is another promising area that is predicted to offer lucrative growth possibilities for the development of the worldwide silk market in the coming years.

On the flip side, the availability of different alternative materials at more affordable prices are slowing down the growth of the silk business to some extent.
