Textile Recycling Market Report – Key Takeaways:

  • High Demand and Consumption of Cotton in Clothing and Other Textiles

Based on the product type, the cotton recycling segment had occupied more than half of the global Textile Recycling Market share in 2022.. The high demand and consumption of cotton in clothing and other textiles results in significant amounts of textile waste. Due to the large amount of cotton waste (both pre- and post-consumer), textile recycling companies are focusing even more on cotton recycling.

  • Post-consumer Textile Segment to Register Highest Growth

The Textile Recycling Market analysis predicts that the post-consumer segment will grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The average lifespan of new clothing has decreased significantly over the past few decades, which has led to an increase in waste in the textile industry.

  • Rising Popularity of Fast Fashion

Fast fashion has become a big trend in the textile and clothing industry today, as it offers mass production of fashionable clothes at affordable prices. However, it negatively impacts the environment and is often criticized for unethical practices during its production phase. With the decline in apparel prices, fast fashion is becoming a common choice for customers, which may slow down the growth of the Textile Recycling Market over the forecast period.

Covid and Ukrainian Crisis Impact:

The textile industry has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since there was a lack of infrastructure and manpower, the operation of the textile industry was adversely affected by the complete disruption of the supply chain and several other factors. This destabilized the textile and clothing industry to a great extent.

The  war between Russia and Ukraine resulted in some economic and other restrictions that led to reduced sales of textiles and clothing to Russia and some other Eastern European countries. Low sales caused a decrease in textile waste, which negatively affected the Textile Recycling Market.
