The “World Fibre & Korea – 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.
South Korea ranked sixth in global fibre/filament production in 2011 and was eighth largest consumer. It was third largest producer of polyester staple fibre and fourth largest producer of nylon and polyester filament. During the year, it produced 1.52 million tons of manmade fibre/filament ac-counting for 2.1% of global supplies.
Consumption wise, South Korea consumed 1.20 million tons of fibre/filaments including cotton in 2011. It was fourth largest polyester filament consumer and seventh in nylon. It is distinct eighth larg-est consumer of VFY and VSF respectively.
Manmade fibre/filament production in South Korea declined 0.9% in 2011 with all major fibre type recording downturn, excepting nylon. PSF production was down 0.1% while ASF output fell 2.9% and that of PFY decreased 1.9%. Nylon production was up 2.3%. However, these declines were in line with the trend between 2000 and 2011.
