Market Definition

Silk is a natural fiber that is obtained from cocoon of silk worms. Thus, the process of growing silk worms to obtain and produce silk is called sericulture. In the past, silk was used to make parachutes but now it is used to make clothes. The protein fiber of silk is composed of fibroin. The best silk is obtained from cocoons of the larvae of a mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori. Real silk is very expensive as it takes around 10,000 cocoons to obtain that quality of silk. Silk can also be employed in unexpected ways such as bicycle tires, medicine and so on. Summer is the best weather to wear silk because of its absorbent nature and has low conductive properties. Silk offers comfort, is extremely soft and adds elegance. Textile has emerged to be the quickest and the largest application of silk. The mulberry silk has dominated the market and will continue to flourish on the basis of worth and volume.

Silk Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:

Drivers

  • High Demand Across Textile Applications

Silk's fastest-growing application is textile. Silk is an important component of the textile industry, which is constantly expanding and changing in terms of demand and supply. Silk is used in textiles because of its lustre, luxurious feel, lightweight, resilience, and strength. It is used in many different types of clothing, including wedding gowns, gowns, blouses, scarves, and neckties, as well as pillows, wall hangings, draperies, and upholstery.

Furthermore, the absorbency of silk makes it very comfortable to wear, especially in hot weather. During cold weather, its low conductivity keeps warm air close to the skin. Silk is increasingly being used in clothing such as shirts, ties, formal dresses, high fashion clothes, lingerie, pajamas, robes, dress suits, sun dresses, and kimonos. Silk is also used in India to make sarees, which are a traditional outfit.

The increasing awareness about the advantage of using lubricant-based products due to their corrosion resistant, nonflammable, and nontoxic properties will further propel the growth rate of silk market. Additionally, the growth in trade by air transportation will also drive market value growth. The expansion of the automotive industry along with the increase in defense budgets are other market growth determinants which are projected to bolster the growth of the market.

Opportunities

  • Development and Advanced Products

Furthermore, rapid development of the silk industry as fewer funds are required for production further extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the increasing development of technologically advanced products by manufacturers in sericulture further expand the future growth of the silk market.

Restraints/Challenges

  • High Material Costs

Silk is one of the basically very expensive material. Additionally, silk clothes are not easy to clean as they usually need to be dry cleaned. Moreover, it can get damaged by excessive sun and water exposure. This makes it all the more expensive for the ultimate consumers. The overall high cost of silk will create hindrances for the growth of the silk market.

  • Presence of Substitutes

Also, the availability of substitutes at comparatively lower prices will prove to be a demerit for the silk market. Therefore, this will challenge the silk market growth rate.

Moreover, the high dependency over China for silk and its raw materials is also expected to hamper growth of the global silk market.
