Researchers at Columbia University have replicated comet moth silk fiber called air-conditioned fiber.

Silk Market Value and Growth:

The Global Silk market size was around $19.7 billion by revenue, at the end of 2018. It is anticipated to grow at CAGR of 7.82 % to reach a total of $28.71 billion by 2023.

Silk Market Drivers and Restraints:

The improving quality of the silk is expected to raise the demand for mulberry silk and thereby drive the global silk market towards prosperity. Since silk has a major application in the textile industry, the fast-growing textile market mutually helps in the global silk market growth. Development in sericulture technology has a direct effect on the silk industry, hence acts as a driver to the global silk market.

However, the concentration of the market in the Asia Pacific region, majorly in China, makes the global market driven by the geography and climate of the region. This on a long run poses as a restraint to the global market. The high dependency for raw material on countries like China gives it the sole power to impose price barriers making the leading buyers shift markets. This restrains the global market in terms of lack of demand. Also, silk is the second most harmful fiber to the environment and restrains the growth of the market.

Silk Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Type

Based on the type of rubber the global Silk market is categorized into Mulberry Silk, Tussar Silk, Eri Silk, and Others. The Mulberry silk market is the largest among other types of silk and is anticipated to have the highest CAGR in the forecast period. The high use of mulberry silk in the textile industry for direct and blended imitation products makes it the leading silk type of them all. The tussah silk is the second in line after mulberry to dominate the silk market.

By Application

Based on the application of the Silk the global Silk market is divided into Textile, Cosmetics, Medicine, and Others. Of the mentioned applications silk is mostly used in the textile industry as direct and blended imitation products. This makes the textile industry application the fastest growing and revenue generating for the global silk market. Cosmetics and medicine are the other major applications of silk. At an early stage of silk making, the silk fibroin protein obtained is used as a raw product for many cosmetic products like cosmetic cream, lotion, liquid soap, cleansing foam, shampoo, conditioner, and nail enamel.

Asia is the largest producer of raw silk, thus the region is rich in raw silk for the textile industry.
  • The market value of Europe is second to that of Asia Pacific and is expected to have a stable growth considering the economic scenario in the region and balanced demand-supply chain majorly in countries like U.K, Italy and France.
  • The Middle East & Africa and Latin America regions, being in the low developing countries due to the contribution of low GDP countries, have fewer chances for industry growth. Hence, the Silk market in these regions is slow growing in nature.
