This 42-page report analyses trends in the international textile yarn machinery market, and includes detailed information about installed capacities and shipments of spinning machines by type, region and selected country. 2015 was a poor year for the international textile yarn machinery market as declines were recorded in shipments of all the main types of machinery, namely short staple spindles, long staple spindles, open-end rotors, single heater false-twist draw texturing spindles and double heater false-twist draw texturing spindles. Indeed, shipments fell to their lowest levels since 2009 in the case of short staple spindles, double heater false-twist draw texturing spindles and open-end rotors. Meanwhile, shipments plunged to their second lowest levels on record in the case of single heater false-twist draw texturing spindles and long staple spindles.
