Recycled Plastic Fabric Market Estimated to Experience a Hike in Growth by 2026
Global Recycled Plastic Fabric Market: Overview
Recycled plastic fabric is broadly defined as collection of waste plastic fabrics that are recycled, processed with various technologies, and finally treated with chemicals and additives to produce a newer plastic fabric. Most companies create fabrics from plastic waste from oceans. This fabric is known as Oceania plastic fabric. It is finally converted into fibers by utilizing zero-waste 3D printing technology.

Clothing is a leading application segment of the global recycled plastic fabric market. Rapid expansion of the textile industry across the globe and shift in demand toward sustainable products manufactured by leading companies such as Nike, Patagonia, and Otto Group to reduce energy and carbon emissions are expected to boost the segment during the forecast period. Medical application of recycled plastic fabrics is also expected to gain popularity due to rise in geriatric population and increase in demand for antimicrobial textiles.
Increase in pollution and global warming due to rise in accumulation of plastics near coastal areas is anticipated to drive the recycled plastic fabric market during the forecast period. Utilization of recycled plastics for manufacturing fabrics aids in significant reduction in energy and carbon dioxide emissions. Recycling of plastic into fabrics is an expensive process as it contains harmful chemicals that may require further processing, making the process expensive and labor intensive. This is expected to restrain the market.
