Synthetic Fiber Manufacturing in the US

Manufacturers of synthetic fiber have struggled for the past decade, and the next five years will be no better. As more textile mills move overseas to take advantage of lower operating costs, they will purchase less fiber from US fiber producers. Inexpensive imports from countries like China will also pose a significant threat to domestic manufacturers' market shares, while constantly rising raw material prices will eat away at operators' profit margins.

This industry produces cellulosic and noncellulosic fibers and filaments in the form of monofilament, filament yarn, staple or tow. Key cellulosic organic fibers and filaments include rayon and acetate. Noncellulosic fibers and filaments include acrylic, nylon, polyester and spandex. This industry does not include fiber, yarn or thread mills, thread manufacturers of any other fibers, or manufacturers of hemp yarn.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
