DUBLIN, December 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Lyocell Fiber Market 2015-2019" report to their offering. 


There has been a significant increase in R&D expenditure by various major industry players in recent years. Research is being conducted to increase the application of lyocell fibers in various applications because of their high tenacity and highly absorbent nature.

Further lyocell fibers do not melt and they outperform cotton and rayon at high temperatures. Major players worldwide have increased their R&D spending to make better use of lyocell fibers. With lyocell fiber products gaining popularity, companies are increasingly trying to introduce new and adaptable products into these markets to benefit from the increased demand from the newer markets. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

According to the report, lyocell fiber is a versatile combination of synthetic and natural fibers and is as cool as linen, as soft as silk, as strong as polyester, as adsorbent as cotton, and as warm as wool. Hence lyocell fibers are used extensively in making apparel. The fibers are biodegradable, which is an advantage for the manufacturer.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is that lyocell fibers can be substituted by cheaper fibers.
