World Linen & Textile Company Inc, Grasim Industries Limited, China Linen Textile Industry Ltd, Ralph Lauren Corporation, Flax Company SARL, Northern Linen BV, Libeco NV, among others, are the major players in the global linen fabric market.
The global linen fabric market is being aided by the rising production of flax fibre and tow. In 2020, the flax fibre and tow product stood at a volume of nearly 875.50 KMT, growing at a CAGR of 3.0% between 2016 and 2020. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by the rising production of tow and flax fibre.
Because of its characteristics, linen fabric is widely employed in the home décor industry. It is also commonly used in the textile industry because of its capacity to keep the wearer comfortable in hot and humid conditions and has higher durability and drying properties than cotton. As a result, the growth of these industries, particularly in developing countries, is expected to increase the demand for linen fabric. In most countries, however, linen fabric is less popular than cotton due to its higher price, which is linked to its expensive manufacturing process. It also has poor elastic characteristics, causing it to wrinkle easily and making it unsuitable for daily wear.

The growth of the fashion industry, particularly in developing countries due to the increase in disposable incomes, is increasing the demand for linen, making it a popular choice for fashion wear, particularly in hot and humid areas. As a result, increased adoption of linen as an apparel fabric is likely to fuel product demand over the forecast period. Europe will continue to be the largest producer and consumer of linen during the forecast period. However, in terms of manufacturing, there has been a shift from Western to Eastern Europe. In the forecast period, the Asia Pacific region is expected to be one of the leading contributors to market growth.
