Global Anti-Viral Fabric Market 2020

Market Overview

The global anti-viral fabric market is projected to experience significant growth across various end-use applications, with a total market size of $226.92 billion in 2020. During the forecast period of 2021-2026, face masks are expected to be the leading segment in terms of the adoption of anti-viral fabrics, accounting for a global market size of $73.50 billion in 2020.

The global pandemic has created a substantial demand for textiles in the market. The textile industry has observed robust growth since March 2020 and continues to expand at an impressive pace. With the emergence of the coronavirus, face masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) have become essential in the medical industry and for frontline workers. However, prolonged exposures have led to healthcare workers contracting COVID-19, as the virus can remain on regular masks and PPE for several days. Consequently, individuals must disinfect masks and PPE after each use to prevent contamination in disposal areas.

The rising demand for face masks has prompted research and development activities focused on technologies that can contain or neutralize the SARS-COV2 virus present on fabrics. Various studies conducted since March 2020 have demonstrated different mechanisms for eliminating the COVID-19 virus from fabrics. Copper ions, silver ions, and other chemicals have been tested for their effectiveness in killing the virus within a few hours of exposure. Several companies have successfully developed new technologies that claim to eliminate the COVID-19 virus by up to 99.9% within timeframes ranging from 30 minutes to two hours. These companies have obtained patents for their anti-viral technologies and have collaborated with major textile end-user companies to incorporate their technology into final products. Key companies involved in the development of anti-viral technology fabrics include HeiQ Materials AG, Polygiene, Rudolf GmbH, and HealthGuard Corporation Pty. Ltd.
