The global natural fiber reinforcement materials market was valued at $250 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $408 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2016 to 2022. Fibers derived from natural sources such as plants (cotton, jute, flax, hemp, sisal), animals (alpaca, wool, silk, mohair, angora) or minerals (asbestos, metal fibers, ceramic) are termed as natural fibers. They are hair-like raw materials that can be spun for use as threads, filaments, and ropes or matted into sheets of paper, or can be used to produce composite materials. The usefulness of natural fibers depends on its characteristics such as, length, elasticity, abrasion resistance, strength, absorbance, and several others.

The natural fiber reinforcement materials market is driven by the upsurge in demand for natural fiber composites from construction industry, consumer awareness & stringent regulations towards using environment friendly products, and biodegradability, recyclability & environment-friendly nature of natural fibers. However, factors such as low strength as compared to synthetic fibers and fluctuating raw material prices are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, growth opportunities exist in the market with increase in applications of natural fiber in the packaging industry

The global natural fiber reinforcement materials market is segmented based on the type, end-use industry, and geography. On the basis of type, it is segmented into hemp, flax, kenaf, jute, and others that includes coir, abaca & sisal. Based on end-use industry, it is classified into transportation, building & construction, consumer goods, and others. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
