New York – Industrial hemp is a versatile plant that can be built up for its fiber, seed, or oil. Over time, industrial hemp has evolved into an even greater variety of products, including health foods, organic body care, clothing, construction materials, biofuels, plastic composites, and more.

Furthermore, The U.S. Department of Agriculture created a regulatory framework around hemp production throughout the United States. Also, In the U.K., the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs treat hemp as a purely non-food crop. Still, with proper licensing and proof of less than 0.3% THC concentration, hemp seeds can be imported for sowing or sale as a food or food ingredient.

The increasing demand by the pharmaceutical and textile industry and rising consumer awareness about product benefits significantly drive the primary factors. Besides this, the growing consumption of hemp-based products on health benefits and the escalating incidences of epilepsy and other sleep disorders is anticipated, and the long-term profitability of industrial hemp is a real hindrance for potential growers.

Rise of Eco-Friendly Shoppers: Fuelling Textiles Hemp Demand
Based on application, the market is classified into Textiles, Personal Care, Food & Beverages, Animal Care, Paper, Automotive, Construction Materials, Furniture, and Others. The textile application segment will lead the market share in 2022 because the textile industry deals with hemp plant cultivation for fiber production.

Hemp is a fast-growing plant with the ability to sequester an average of zero-point-six-seven tons of carbon dioxide per hectare every year from the atmosphere. This sustainably means that it turned into consistent, durable material, and hemp can store carbon for its lifetime, thus reducing carbon in the atmosphere. Therefore, it could impact global carbon reduction goals negatively if used to substitute more carbon-intensive materials and products.

However, the abuse of the hemp plant as a drug was one of the most significant factors that caused the textile industry to turn away from hemp, but it was not the only reason. Therefore, cotton fiber processing technologies also drove the market’s growth in the same period.
