Südwolle Group, Brown Sheep Company, Inc., Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited, Europa Wools Ltd., Xinao textiles inc., Yünsa A.S., and Laxtons Limited among others, are the major players in the global merino wool market.


The global merino wool market is expected to grow at a healthy rate in the forecast period of 2023-2028. As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is being driven by the growing demand for merino wool in the clothing industry.


Merino wool is considered the finest type of wool, due to which it is extensively used in the clothing industry. The excellent insulating, moisture resistant, and anti-static properties offered by merino wool are surging its demand. With the growing preference for comfortable clothes that do not irritate the skin, the demand for merino wool is significantly increasing. 


Merino wool resists bacteria, odour, and stains, which makes it easy to wash than other synthetic materials. As the wool can retain its shape after washing and stretching, it is used in the production of clothing for physical activities like skiing and running, among others. The rising environmental-consciousness in the fashion industry, especially among the Gen-Z and millennial population, is expected to surge the demand for merino wool in the forecast period.


Leading companies in the market are increasingly devising innovative approaches to enhance consumer awareness regarding the benefits of merino wool. Such initiatives are also educating customers about the diverse range of products made from merino wool.  Moreover, with the rising trend of sustainability, various high-end fashion brands are increasingly utilising merino wool in their winterwear collection owing to its biodegradability and renewability benefits. For instance, in October 2021, Victoria Beckham, the British fashion brand, collaborated with The Woolmark Company for designing a traceable knitwear collection that is made from merino wool and natural dyes.
