Two main Material Type used for manufacturing microfibers include blend type and pure polymer type. The blend (Polyester + Polyamide) segment consists of microfiber cloths made up of either 70-30% blend, 75-25%, or 80-20% blend of Polyester and Polyamide; whereas, the pure polymer segment will include microfiber cloths made up of 100% single type of polymer; either polyester or polyamide. Additionally, a blend of 90-10% or 95-5% of Polyester and Polyamide sometimes also called as pure polymer.

Production of ultra-fine fibers and microfibers had started back in the late 1950s, by using flash spinning and melt-blown spinning techniques. At that time, fine staples of random length had manufactured, and only a few applications were found. Various experiments were made subsequently to produce these fibers of continuous filaments, and the most favorable among them was done in Japan in the 1960s by a scientist of Toray Industries – Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto. Later, his various discoveries done with the help of Dr. Toyohiko Hikota, found numerous industrial applications. One of these successful synthetic microfibers – Ultrasuede – became available in markets in the 1970s, and its use in the textile industry get expanded. Microfibers were first shown in Sweden in the early 1990s and faced success as a product in the region over the decade.

Microfiber is also used to make knits, mats, and weaves for upholstery, apparel, industrial filters, etc. The size, shape, and various blend of synthetic fibers used for particular characteristics, including toughness, softness, water repellency, absorption, filtering capabilities, electrostatics, etc. Microfiber cloths are prone to flame and are flammable if carbohydrates (cellulose) or hydrocarbons (polyester) used in its manufacturing process. It can emit toxic and harmful gases when burning if aromatic (PS, PET, ABS) treated with azo dyes or halogenated flame retardants. The polyester and nylon stock of the fabric made up of petrochemicals, that are a non-renewable resource and cannot be biodegradable. However, if these fabrics can be made up of polypropylene (Prolen), they can be recyclable.

Microfibers cleaning cloths are designed for multiple uses rather than single-use and get discarded. Microfiber products have the potential to enter the oceanic water supply and form a food chain similar to other microplastics. Additionally, microfibers cleaning cloths when washed can release materials and move to local wastewater treatment plants, results in a contribution to plastic pollution in water. Further, these fibers can be retained as sludge (biosolids) in wastewater treatment that can be applied to land and persist in soils.

Increasing demand for solid materials for cleaning in a household, hospitals, and other industries coupled with rising demand for eco-friendly synthetic leather will feed the target market growth. Furthermore, increasing demand for microfiber cleaning cloths in furniture and decoration sector will also raise the market growth in the near future.

Rising initiatives for workplace hygiene in various organizations leads to the increasing demand for the more effective and efficient product for cleaning such as microfiber cloths. Multiple companies have commenced various initiatives to keep the work area clean, and they are taking cleaning as one of their liabilities to avoid accidents and mishaps at the workplace. For instance, cleaning regulations are very rigorous in many companies of developed regions, and in case of any accidents or mishaps, the company is liable to pay a considerable amount as compensation. Also, sometimes, the companies have to face lawsuits that will affect the company’s revenues and even the reputation and business of the company. Similarly, developing economies are also focusing on cleanliness and hygiene through different initiatives.

Increasing demand for microfibers cleaning cloths in various applications can create numerous opportunities for the target market. Some of the applications of microfiber cleaning cloths are cleaning of shoes, bags, furniture, electronics, etc. Besides, paper towels and some other fabric towels can cause tiny scratches or leave lint on any expensive electronics, that looks unpleasant and can damage the product. In this case, fabrics such as microfiber cleaning cloths can be a good option for electronics lovers.
