Global Trends in Fibre Prices, Production and Consumption, July 2015

Global Trends in Fibre Prices, Production and Consumption, July 2015

Trends in the fibre sector are an important indicator of future trends in the textile and apparel industry as a whole. This report provides an overview of general trends in fibre prices, production and consumption by country and region. It also provides insight, information, data and analysis of the key fibre types – natural and man-made. Furthermore, it provides forecasts of cotton demand, supply and prices for the forthcoming year. World fibre demand increased in 2014, but the growth rate was lower than the hike achieved in the previous year. There was an increase in man-made fibre production, which was mostly due to growth in output of polyester fibre. Natural fibre production, however, fell due to declines in cotton and wool production.
