Global Rayon Fibers Market: Overview
The rayon fiber market is expected to display notable growth owing to the pronounced demand from several industries. Rayon fibers are designed to display a range of properties that are suitable for a wide range of end uses. Also, rayon fibers display properties such as drape and slipperiness as exhibited by nylon fibers and can also imitate the feel of cotton or wool, which makes them ideal for hot and humid climates. Rayon is used in clothing, home furnishings, and industrial applications.
The rayon fibers market can be segmented on the basis of type and geography. The market can be divided into the type segments of polynosic rayon fiber, flame retardant fiber, tencel rayon fiber, high wet modulus rayon fiber, and super absorbent rayon fiber. The meticulous segmentation of the rayon fibers market presented in this report is insightful to comprehend the growth outlook of various segments, thereby helping to leverage opportunities in the industry.

Global Rayon Fibers Market: Drivers and Restraints
The incessant demand from the textile industry is one of the major factors driving the global rayon fibers market. With the growth of the textile sector, the demand for rayon fibers is expected to swell in the coming years.
Although rayon fiber is manmade, it has several properties similar to that of natural polymers. This includes high comfort and low cost of natural polymers and the drape and slipperiness of nylon fibers. The semi-synthetic character of rayon fibers is suitable for a varied range of products such as home furnishings, apparels, industrial and medical products. Due to the large applications of rayon fibers, the global rayon fibers market is expected to rise at a rapid pace. The countries of Asia Pacific such as China, India, and Indonesia largely dominate the global rayon fibers market.
However, rayon fiber has several disadvantages as well. Rayon fibers are easily damaged by strong concentrated bleaches as they are manufactured from natural polymers. The prolong exposure to sunlight leads to reduced strength of rayon fiber.
Global Rayon Fibers Market: Regional Overview
North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World are the regional segments into which the global rayon fibers market can be divided. Amongst these, Asia Pacific holds a major share in the global market with countries such as India and China contributing significantly to the revenue of this region. Moreover, due to the faster drying property of rayon over cotton, the fabric makes a better substitute for cotton suitable for the hot and humid climate in Asia Pacific. Europe follows Asia Pacific in terms of the revenue share of the global rayon fibers market.
