Boston: “According to the latest research study, the demand for Global Textile Recycling Market expected to grow from $8.0 billion in 2023 to $11.1 billion by the end of 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of  7.0% from 2023 through 2028.”

The report will provide detailed insights into different aspects of textile recycling, including the types of materials used, the industries that use recycled textiles, how these recycled textiles are distributed, the different kinds of textile waste, and the methods used in textile recycling. The estimated values are based on the total revenues of manufacturers, and the projected revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars without adjustments for inflation. It offers comprehensive information about the textile recycling industry and its users. The global textile recycling market is divided into categories such as material type (polyester, cotton, nylon, wool), process type (chemical and mechanical), textile waste (post-consumer waste and pre-consumer waste), distribution channel (online and offline), end-use (apparel, home furnishing, industrial), and regions including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the rest of the world (RoW).

Startup companies are working on automating the chemical textile recycling process and conducting research to make recycled fiber more affordable. This shift toward automation could significantly decrease the cost of recycled fiber, encouraging more textile producers to join the recycling market. Globally, textile producers are increasingly adopting recycling technology due to rising landfill costs. In the Asia-Pacific region, there's a mix of organized and unorganized markets, with many smaller, local companies primarily focused on mechanical textile recycling. Meanwhile, companies in North America and Europe are strategically transitioning from mechanical to chemical processes. Chemical recycling produces purer and higher-quality fiber compared to mechanical methods, driving this shift in strategy.
