Hemp fabric is known to be hypoallergenic, strong, and naturally resistant to UV light in nature thereby supporting its wide use in the sector. With growing skin concerns among people there has emerged a need for specialized textile solutions. In textile applications, hemp can be blended with cotton or linen, adding stretch and strength to the fabric.

Nations such as IndiaChinaJapan, Korea, and Australia have emerged as key producers and consumers of hemp over time owing to the availability of advanced irrigation facilities along with the high demand for hemp-based food products and personal care items in the region.

Industrial Hemp Market Growth & Trends

Growing awareness among people regarding the high nutritional value of hemp such as its strong protein and fatty acid profile will drive its use. The high absorbency rate of hemp has proven to be beneficial for livestock bedding, application in personal hygiene solutions, and oil and gas cleanup.

Notably, the products manufactured from hemp are sustainable, renewable, and linked to less harmful methods of preparation. This has proven to be beneficial in adopting environmentally friendly cultivation habits, an effort being widely supported by governments across the globe. For instance, paper manufactures from hemp fiber requires relatively lower chemicals for processing when compared to paper which is made from wood pulps. Hence, consciousness regarding the product benefits will continue to boost the industry growth.

The coronavirus pandemic adversely affected brick-and-mortar enterprises, compelling them to shift their sale to digital platforms, leading to a considerable supply and demand imbalance for hemp-based products. Hence most of the hemp-based products could be purchased from reliable websites and in certain cases, hemp product sellers are now dealing through their online platforms.

In line with the above, it is important to understand that the expanded legalization of hemp in key nations like the U.S. has complemented the global industrial hemp market expansion throughout the epidemic.
