Poly Cotton Market Snapshot (2023 to 2033)

The global poly cotton market was estimated to reach a valuation of USD 15.50 Billion in the year 2022. With a steady CAGR of 2.8% from 2023 to 2033, this market is expected to reach USD 15.9 Billion by 2023 and USD 21.5 Billion by 2033.

The benefits of both cotton and polyester are combined in poly cotton fabrics. Polycotton has certain advantages over pure cotton. Compared to clothing made of pure cotton and polyester, polycotton ones are more breathable, tear-resistant, and affordable. The mixes are quite popular since they are more durable, highly adaptable, and have a rapid drying quality. From thin blouses and shirts to thick blends used to make trousers, poly cotton textiles come in a variety of weights. Tablecloths, bed sheets, pillowcases, and curtains are some further variations that are made using the fabric of poly cotton. Such benefits as well as the versatile qualities of poly cotton have been accelerating the global market for poly cotton during the forecast period of 2023 to 2033.

Due to the advantages polycotton textiles have over pure cotton ones, they are growing in popularity. The popularity of adopting slim-fit, breathable clothes while exercising, playing sports, and engaging in other recreational activities is a key element in the development of the polycotton textiles market. Additional benefits of polycotton fabric include comfort, wrinkles resistance, flexibility, affordability, and ease of drying. These attributes will help the industry continue to grow in the near future. Due to the advantages polycotton textiles have over pure cotton ones, they are rapidly growing in popularity.

Additionally, consumers' preferences for polyester made from crude oil with an acidic base have changed, and they now demand a fiber that is pollution-free. As a result, cotton and poly cotton are now competing on price. One of the main drivers of the rise of the poly-cotton market, together with demand, has been economic growth. The demand for cotton and its products, including shirts, trousers, jeans, and other apparel, has decreased as economic development has slowed. Poly cotton apparel, which is more affordable than cotton, has mostly replaced cotton in garment production. These elements are anticipated to increase the market's current demand.

Region-wise, the Asia Pacific market can be considered a lucrative one for the demand for poly cotton textiles. In India, due to the growing prices of cotton, there has been a spike in the demand for poly cotton fabrics. Blending the polyester fabric with cotton has successfully resulted in a cost reduction of almost 15% in India. The cost of single cotton yarn in the country is 500 INR whereas a combination of 60% cotton with 40% polyester would cost just 350 INR. Such price effectiveness of poly cotton is accelerating the revenues in this domain and the same trend is expected during the forecast period as well.

Various investments by key players are also boosting global growth in the market. For instance, in 2022, Inditex, environmental investment firm Breakthrough Energy Ventures, US textile maker Miliken & Company, and investment company Lansdowne Partners all committed to the capital round, which will be used to finish development work on Circ's significantly bigger poly-cotton recycling facilities. Alante Capital, 8090 Partners, Marubeni, and Card Sound Capital are previous investors who have now joined Circ's most recent round of fundraising. The business claims that Circ's technology can separate and recover blended polymer streams, especially any combination of polyester as well as cotton, which make up the majority of manufactured textiles, and that this will significantly lower the number of carbon emissions produced by the fashion sector. Such factors are responsible to boost the overall market growth for poly cotton in the coming years.

Poly Cotton Market: Overview

Poly cotton is a material that is a blend of natural cotton and synthetic polyester, and is used to produce clothes, curtains, pillow covers, among others.

Although, the ratio can be different for various type of products such as tablecloths, exhibition canvas, bed sheets and among others. Poly cotton can be easily found at small and large textile retail outlets.

Lightweight poly cotton blends are used for blouses and shirts, whereas heavier ones are used for pants, lowers, and skirts. In the fast moving life poly cotton plays crucial role because poly cotton clothes are considered as wrinkle-free, no need to iron frequently, and not stick to skin.

While, pure cotton is considered as hypoallergenic and can also create skin irritation. Therefore, consumers are increasingly giving preference for poly cotton clothes as compared to pure cotton clothes.

According to European Textile Services Association (ETSA), a worker wearing poly cotton clothes at work requires 25% fewer new clothes as compared to a worker wearing pure cotton because of the high reliability of poly cotton. Furthermore, pure cotton is costlier than poly cotton as well and poly cotton is much more comfort.

Poly Cotton Market: Dynamics

Rising usage of slim-fit clothes for sport activities and recreational activities are projected to spur the demand of poly cotton over the coming decades.

Due to aforementioned factors, poly cotton is forecasted to gain more traction over pure cotton or polyester over the coming years.

According to World Trade Organization; the price of poly cotton is foreseen as declining as the material becomes more popular. Therefore, in garment manufacturing factory poly cotton can be seen easily.

Whereas, pure cotton could be more desirable outside as it will always be more breathable. Furthermore, rapid changing in the consumer behaviour and technological advancement in cloth industry is expected to hamper the global market of poly cotton over the coming span of years.
