Organic fibre sales in US increase 9.2% in FY16: Report

Aug '17
For 2016, the sales of organic fibres in the United States have increased to $1.4 billion, 9.2 per cent up from the previous year, says a recent report. For the reported period, sales of non-food organic products have risen by almost 9 per cent to $3.9 billion. Organic fibre, supplements and personal care products account for the bulk of those sales.

The organic fibre and textiles category continue to rank as the largest non-food organic category in the $43.3 billion US market. Organic fibre sales account for almost 40 per cent of the total $3.9 billion in organic non-food sales in 2016, according to the 2017 Organic Industry Survey. The survey was carried out by the Organic Trade Association (OTA). More than 200 companies were interviewed for the survey.

An increase has been observed in the use of organic products in the wardrobes, bedrooms and bathrooms of the US consumers, the survey revealed. Adequate supplies of organic textiles are a continuing challenge in the organic fibre market. However, US organic cotton farmers produced a record 17,000 plus bales in 2016, to help alleviate some supply concerns.

Recently, Grund America, a leading manufacturer of organic home textiles, also announced the addition of organic cotton bath towels to its collection. (RR)
