The “World Fibre & Japan – 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. In this Report we have captured the trends seen in 2011 in textile fibre/filament industry in-cluding natural fibres, particularly cotton. The analysis assesses the positions of fibres/filaments in-dustry as events unfolded.
The Report’s 20 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.
Japan, once a textile hub, has seen a steady decline in its position as a major supplier and is losing rap-idly in its share in the World. In 1990, it was the seventh largest producer and by 2011 it lost two posi-tions falling to ninth rank. In March 2011, the country faced another climatic disaster with a massive earthquake hitting the north-east region triggering a tsunami that caused extensive damage to the country. Despite the disaster, Japan produced just 641,000 tons of manmade fibre in 2011, up 0.5% over 2010. Although, its rank has declined over the years, it is still among the top 10 producers and exporters in many segments.
In supplies, Japan was the third largest producer of VFY and fourth largest in acrylic fibre. It was also sixth largest producer of VSF while ranked ninth in nylon and tenth in polyester. Japan topped in ex-port of acrylic fibre in 2011. Similarly, it ranked seventh in VSF exports.
