The “World Acrylic Fibre – Trends in Demand and Supply” is the Seventh annual compendium in a se-ries from YarnsandFibers covering the trends in global demand and supply of textile fibre/filament in-dustry. 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 50 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 growth in acrylic fibers has been slow with Asia being the main growing mar-ket. Production of acrylic fibers has shifted from Europe and North America to China. The US no longer produces acrylic fiber.
Asia now accounts for almost two-thirds of the global acrylic fibre capacity, up from just half 6 years ago. The rapid built up in Asia signifies the shift in capacities from costly Americas and Europe to this low cost region. North America and West Europe together now hold about 17% of global capacity, down from 26% in 2006. Within Asia, most of the capacity is concentrated in China. Almost 33% global capacity and more than half of Asia’s capacity is in China. Middle East has also emerged as a major supplier of acrylic fibre, with capacity adding pacing-up quickly to take advantage of its strong upstream and downstream linkages and its geographical positioning to supply to European and Asian markets.
Middle East now accounts for 15% largely concentrating in Turkey which is advantageously placed in proximity to Europe - a major consuming market. Iran, Saudi Arabia also make ASF economically viable.
