Increasing Preference For Eco-Friendly Products Stokes Up The Demand In The Acet

Posted by AshishPMR on November 4th, 2019

Acetate yarn is a synthetic fiber based yarn with a threadlike structure. Acetate yarn was first developed in 1865, by heating cotton at ~140oC degrees with calcium and acetic anhydride. Nowadays, acetate yarn is produced from cellulose acetate by breaking down wood pulp into purified cellulose. Further, purified cellulose is mixed with acetic anhydride in the presence of sulfuric acid as a catalyst, after that the filament is stretched out from the spinning solution extruded in a column of dry air. Acetate yarn can be mixed with different colors, including black, which is required in the manufacturing of dress materials, clotheslining, and other textile related products. Acetate yarn is widely consumed in the production of cigarette filters and butts.

Acetate Yarn Market: Dynamics

Cigarette manufacturing industry and textile & apparel industry are the major end-use industries, which are preliminarily influencing the growth of the acetate yarn market globally. Rising per capita spending of consumers on cigarettes and other related products resulted in the rising consumption of cigarettes among consumers. This factor is likely to create a positive impact on the acetate yarn market.  Furthermore, changing lifestyle and trends related to clothing among consumers are expected to boost the demand for acetate yarn. Acetate yarn is also used in the manufacturing of bandages, gauges, etc., which, in turn, is driving the acetate yarn market.

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) is one of the key component used in the manufacturing of cellulose acetate, which is the primary raw material for acetate yarn. The high cost of titanium dioxide affects the raw material production in price-sensitive regions, which, in turn, causes a setback for the acetate yarn market. Emission of air pollutants during the production of acetate yarn due to the usage of additives, solvents, and other organic compounds in fiber processing are hazardous to human health. Owing to which governments in different regions are implementing stringent regulations on the production of acetate yarn, which might act as a restraining factor for the acetate yarn market.  However, acetone, methanol, and methyl ethyl ketone are the solvents that are currently used by manufacturers during the production of cellulose-based acetate yarn to lower the emissions.
