The “World Polyester Fibre – Trends in Demand and Supply” is the Seventh annual compendium in a series from YarnsandFibers covering the trends in global demand and supply of textile fibre/filament industry. The compilation covers all major fibre producing countries accounting for 85% of global pro-duction and consumption. Time series on trends from 1990 to 2011 on production, imports, exports and apparent consumption is presented country-wise for 13 countries including all major Asian coun-tries, USA and West Europe.
In this Report we have captured the trends seen in 2011 in textile fibre/filament industry including natural fibres, particularly cotton. The analysis assesses the positions of fibres/filaments industry as events unfolded.
The Report’s 84 pages are richly annotated with authoritative and unbiased objective description, and hard-to-find statistical facts. The report also provides unequivocal views on future potential while throwing light on the prevailing climate in key regional markets and projections upto 2017 of availabil-ity and demand for all fibres.
The Report is divided into two sections: Fibre-wise View and Region/Country wise View.
Global capacities for polyester fiber reached 20.7 million ton a year by the end of 2011, where capaci-ty increase for the year was 2.66 million ton. China was the main contributor to capacity expansion in 2011 and also the most important supplier of polyester fibers. In 2011, China has added 2.22 million ton of polyester fibre capacity taking its total capacity to 12.68 million ton a year. Production grew by 7.3% to 14.3 million tons in 2011, spurred increased capacity and modest demand.
Although the capacity expansion in China was significantly, its production growth was just close to 10%. It appears that it carries about 3 million tons of excess capacity given the global demand levels in 2011. Consumption in Asia accounted for 88% of global supplies in 2011. In the past 11 years, global consumption of PSF recorded an increase of 6.2% per annum slightly faster than the 5% growth in production, implying huge carry over inventory.
The market demand for polyester filament yarns is primarily driven by the demand for DTY, which represented an estimated 65% of total polyester filament yarns production for textile purposes in China in 2011.
