The “World Nylon 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 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 52 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.


Nylon forms the second most important man made textiles after polyester. In 2011, production volume declined 3% following the over 10% decline in the crisis ridden 2008. Production which had crossed 4 million tons in 2006 fell to a low of 3.7 million tons in 2009 post the global recession of 2008. However, it picked up in 2010 and in 2011 it came close to 4 million tons. Both filament yarn and staple fibre businesses had suffered heavy downtrend in 2008 and 2009. In 2011, the reversal was modest.

The growth of global nylon 6 demand has been shaped in recent years by the movement of finished goods production to China from North America and the other regions, such that Northeast Asia has become the largest nylon 6 consuming region. China introduced a set of economic incentives aimed at stimulating domestic consumer demand for durable goods during the recent recession that succeeded in minimizing the local effects of the global slowdown. Demand growth in China has been much faster than nylon 6 capacity growth, increasing China's reliance on a large volume of imported materials.
