These fibers are designed such as to yield a maximum performance solution for both common and advanced applications. Clothing and textile materials are carriers of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. The inherent properties of a textile product can provide the ideal opportunity for these organisms to grow, which explains why odors develop on damp textiles or body odor is retained by clothing until it is washed and cleaned. Antimicrobial and antistatic fibers are used to inhibit the activity of microorganisms and to eliminate the buildup of static electricity. These fibers are used in public places where contract fabric is found, including upholstery in offices, hotels, casinos, cruise ships and hospitals, as well as broadloom carpet and carpet tile, to prevent disruption of computers or electronic devices,
The demand for antimicrobial fibers and antistatic fibers has increased sharply since the mid-1990s and the main driver which is driving the market is the growing awareness among consumers on the importance of personal hygiene and the health risks posed by certain microorganisms. However the main constraint for this market is the growing concern among different environmental groups who claim that some antimicrobial agents -- notably silver nanoparticles is toxic and should be banned from use in consumer products. Extensive R&D practices are carried out to develop effective and durable antimicrobial products which are less likely to be harmful to human health and the environment.
