The Global Organic Cotton Market Size is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% through 2028. The global organic cotton market was valued at US$ 4.5 billion in 2017 and is likely to be worth US$ 3.7 billion by 2020.
Organic cotton is an agricultural crop that has been grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. By cutting out any chemicals for insect control and not using artificial fertilizers in growing these crops, ensures a cleaner product with fewer synthetic residues.
Organic cotton has many advantages in comparison with conventional cotton such as being more environmentally sound because it uses less water than its counterpart; it also reduces CO² emissions through reduced energy consumption for irrigation and pesticide use. This makes organic farming a sustainable solution against climate change thus contributing towards alleviating environmental concerns associated with agriculture production methods that use conventional cotton. In addition, organic farming is less harmful to the soil because it does not use nitrate fertilizers and pesticides which have nitrogen-based compounds that may lead to water pollution in agricultural areas or when these substances are released into rivers during heavy rains.
On the basis of Types, the market is segmented into Medical Grade Organic Cotton, Normal Organic Cotton.
A medical-grade organic cotton is a group of premium quality, environmentally friendly products produced using methods to minimize the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. It is considered by experts as being an essential component in medical applications because it exhibits excellent absorbency while maintaining its integrity through repeated washings. Additionally, this type of natural fiber does not react negatively with latex or dyes commonly used for rubber gloves and other hospital textiles.
Normal organic cotton is the type of organic cotton that has not been processed or treated with any chemicals, allowing it to retain its natural color and texture. Normal organic cotton is made of natural fibers from plants such as maize, soybeans, or sugarcane. Non-organic crops are sprayed with pesticides and fertilizers that introduce health problems for the farmers who work in these fields; they have lower-priced clothes available because their production process entails fewer steps than those involved in making organic clothing.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into medical products, apparel, and others. The medical application segment dominated the market in 2016 as it accounted for 38% of total demand. The other applications are growing at a steady rate due to increased usage of organic cotton in the clothing & textiles sector owing to its high-quality characteristics such as natural breathability, making them perfect for use during hot summer months or humid climates.
Organic cotton is increasingly being used in medical products. The rising awareness of the health impacts of chemicals, combined with its competitive pricing and availability has led to organic cotton becoming an attractive alternative for manufacturers. In a survey done by Medline Industries in 2012 in collaboration with Cotton Incorporated, 73% of respondents said they believed that using more chemical-free or low-chemical textiles would be better for their patient's health outcomes than garments made from traditional fibers like polyester or nylon; 67% felt it was important to provide patients care only if it adheres to high standards and principles such as eco-friendly textiles; 92% expressed concern about fiber choice and environmental impact on public health; while 89 percent were concerned about the effects certain fabrics can have on the skin.
Organic cotton is a new trend in apparel or just another way to promote sustainability and healthy living through clothes. Organic cotton also has many benefits over chemically treated fabrics such as being more breathable and softer than its counterpart which makes them better suited for medical products such as surgical masks, sanitary pads, diapers, etc., since they can absorb moisture easily without causing any discomfort to wearers; this leads to a healthy environment with minimal incidence of skin irritation due to sensitive tissues coming into contact with harsh chemical residue on synthetic fabric.
organic fabrics also tend to be softer than non-organic ones because it's grown without pesticides or fertilizers - this means that your skin will have less contact with irritating substances like gluten and chemicals found in synthetic fibers.

In the Middle East & Africa, Egypt has a major share of the organic cotton market because it mainly produces cotton in this region coupled with its low cost of production.
The major factors driving the growth are the increasing demand for sustainable fashion products in developing economies coupled with the growing need for clothing due to the rising population.
Organic cotton has been on the rise in recent years, which is largely due to a growing concern for health and environmental issues. Consumers are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint by purchasing sustainable products like organic cotton that don't use pesticides or fertilizers - this means they're also protecting themselves from exposure to toxic substances found in synthetic fabrics.
