Impact of COVID-19-

Market growth has been impacted by COVID-19 in manufacturing sectors

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, some governments have announced restrictions on the distribution and transportation of finished products and raw materials, affecting the value chain. Textile producers and organic cotton producers have been impacted by delays or cancellations of purchases from major brands. At least for the first half of 2020, textile manufacturers have faced supply difficulties due to trade restrictions in major cotton producing countries such as China and India. As a result, the production activities of many companies have been restricted. Fortunately, despite the disruptions of the pandemic, demand for the product has increased significantly in 2020, due to the brand’s strong commitment to sourcing favorite fibers and ingredients.

Drivers and Constraints-

Growing demand for sustainable textile solutions to increase market growth

Many organizations prefer to use organic cotton when producing textiles due to growing global concerns about sustainability and pollution. It is better for conditioning the soil and has a lower environmental impact than conventional cotton, which uses harmful pesticides and requires a lot of water. Also, when buying clothes and other textile products, people have started to consider sustainability. Textile companies can gain an advantage over their competitors by using organic materials. Moreover, it is gradually integrating into the supply chains of major Parisian and Milanese fashion houses, as well as retailers, leading to a sharp increase in demand.

Moreover, many companies have used the product in the majority of their portfolios after recognizing its vast benefits. This, combined with increased environmental sustainability and health concerns and laws, will drive product demand. Additionally, customers are quickly adopting environmentally friendly behaviors and are willing to pay more for organic items. This factor, combined with rising cotton costs, is propelling the growth of the organic cotton market. However, the high cost of cotton seeds, agricultural process and raw materials may hamper the market growth.

Regional outlook-

Asia-Pacific leads the global market due to high demand for sustainable cotton solutions

In 2020, the Asia-Pacific market was valued at USD 310.1 million. Attributed to the high demand for sustainable cotton solutions from many end-use industries, such as apparel, medical, and cosmetics, these categories held the largest organic cotton market share. Additionally, many organic cotton producers and consumers are headquartered in the region, resulting in lower cost items available locally. This serves as motivation for increased use of the product and a smoother transition away from traditional cotton.

Many high-end luxury companies are poised to expand their regional distribution systems, increasing packaging usage in Europe. Due to several government requirements for environmental preservation and consumer awareness of sustainable clothing, the demand from the fashion industry is strong. These considerations, together with the fact that the European market is fully open, with no import levies or export subsidies on organic cotton, propel the market forward.

The Latin America market is expected to grow significantly, which can be attributed to industrialization aided by economic and technological development. Additionally, the industry is fueled by a huge agricultural acreage available for agricultural production. The demand for products in the Middle East and Africa can be attributed to the region’s growing economy and improving lifestyle, which requires high-quality and expensive products. Additionally, the region is a major producer of Egyptian and Giza cotton, which results in profitable cotton production and supports the regional market.
