Natural Fiber Composites Market: Alkali Treatment Effectively modifies Fiber Surface Properties

Published on : Sep 24, 2019

Albany, New York, September 24, 2019: Natural fiber composites usage is rapidly growing in research and industrial applications owing to its non-carcinogenic, renewable, recyclable and bio-degradable properties. Various sectors including transportation, construction, packaging and consumer products are using natural fiber composites for their eco-friendliness.

Natural fiber composites can be majorly categorized into green composites - fiber and matrix - obtained from renewable resources and partly eco-friendly composites - either of fiber or matrix - not obtained from renewable resource. The mechanical property of natural fiber composites is highly dependent on the properties displayed by polymer of its matrix. The raw materials involved in production of these polymers can be synthetic or from plant and animals - bio-based sources.

Hydrophilic fibers and hydrophobic matrix compose natural fibers

Poor compatibility of hydrophilic fibers and hydrophobic matrix/polymer macromolecules is the main disadvantage offered by green natural fibers like flax, jute, hemp, bamboo and coir. Alkali treatment is the most preferred chemical method to modify the fiber surface properties of natural fibers to improve their adhesion property.

These insights are according to the intelligence report, titled, “Global Natural Fiber Composites Market 2019-2023, Trends and Forecast Report,” which has been freshly added to Market Research Hub’s (MRH) over-arching repository.

Demand growth from end users soars

Bio-degradable natural fiber composites have the potential to substantially reduce the solid and plastic derived waste. Natural fibers are cultivated with help of solar energy, thereby reducing fossil fuels consumption in further production and extraction processes. Manual cultivation of natural fiber generates huge employment opportunity in agriculture sector. Natural fiber composites serve to fulfill the sustainable development goals such as eliminating poverty, and fostering innovations and sustainability.

Various industries including energy, construction, automotive and aerospace vie to use natural fibers composites and exploit its environment friendly attributes. Natural fiber composites are also included in various interior parts including dashboards, seat cushions, back rests, cabin linings etc.

Some major players dealing with natural fiber composites include UPM Biocomposites, Procotex, Fiberon, Tecnaro, FlexForm Technologies, Greencore Composites, Greengran, Polymera and TTS BIOCOMPOSITE.
