Statistics: fibre consumption for technical textile production in Japan, 2020

This report provides a round-up of recent corporate developments in the global technical textiles sector, including: acquisitions, divestments and mergers; business news; investments; and joint ventures. The report contains news relating to the following innovative companies and other organisations: 3M, ACG Kinna Automatic, ACG Nyström, Berry Global (Berry), Carbon ThreeSixty, Carbopress, Consolidated Pathways, Cygnet Texkimp, Filc, Freudenberg Group, Gurit, HeiQ, Hygiene Austria, Johns Manville, Juki Corporation (Juki), Karl Mayer, Karweb Nonwovens, Lenzing, Melchior Textil, MGC, Montefibre Carbon, Nonwovens Innovation & Research Institute (NIRI), Oerlikon Nonwoven, Palmers Textil, Quantum Materials (Quantum), Sanitized, Stoll Group (Stoll), Teijin Group, The Nonwovens Institute (NWI) at North Carolina State University (NC State), the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and Wrapping Solutions.

This report includes statistical data and analysis of the Japanese man-made fibre and technical textile industry under the following headings: man-made fibre production and consumption in Japan; man-made fibre consumption for technical textile applications in Japan; and production of technical textiles in Japan. It also includes an outlook for the Japanese technical textile industry and contains a wealth of recently released data for 2019. Overall, man-made fibre production in Japan declined in 2019 to its lowest level on record and, in particular, there were declines in filament yarn production and staple fibre production. Furthermore, consumption of domestically produced fibres for industrial textile production in 2018/19 declined to its lowest level since 2009/10, and nonwoven fabric production fell to its lowest level since 2012.
