Statistics: trends in global and regional man-made fibre production, 2017

Statistics: trends in global and regional man-made fibre production, 2017

This report includes statistical data and analysis of global and regional man-made fibre production broken down into several types of synthetic and cellulosic fibres. The report also includes detailed forecasts of man-made fibre capacities to the end of 2018 by fibre type, country and region, as well as an outlook for man-made fibre production. World fibre demand rose for the eighth year in succession in 2016 to a record high. The rise was due almost entirely to an increase in man-made fibre demand. The increase in man-made fibre demand reflected primarily a rise in polyester filament yarn production. However, increases were recorded in production of most of the main fibre types—the only exceptions being acrylic staple fibre and cellulosic filament yarn. Geographically, much of the growth in production took place in China, although there was also substantial growth elsewhere in Asia. Furthermore, almost all of the forecast man-made fibre capacity expansion between March 2017 and December 2018 will take place in Asia—and in China and India in particular.
