According to the report, one driver in the market is environmental damage caused by conventional fibres. The production of fibres, both natural and synthetic, has a significant impact on the environment. Non-organic cotton, the natural fibre with the highest production rate is grown by conventional methods.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is challenges associated with the cultivation of organic cotton. Organic cotton is one of the most preferred eco fibres and is gaining popularity across the globe as it does not use chemicals and is hypoallergenic. Clothes made of organic cotton are soft and comfortable.

One trend in the market is increasing adoption of bamboo. Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, and bamboo fibres are increasing in popularity. The cultivation of bamboo does not require chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

It covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market, including David C.
