The “World Fibre & Thailand – 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.
Thailand notched four positions up and was ranked seventh largest producer of fibre/filaments (in-cluding cotton) in the world and ranked tenth in terms of consumption in 2011. During the year, it produced 1.09 million tons of fibre/filament and consumed over 1.00 million tons. Globally, it can be reckoned as one of the major players in viscose stable fibre segment, although polyester industry is much larger than viscose in volume. In terms of supplies, Thailand ranked fourth in the world and was the third largest exporter of viscose staple fibre in 2011. In polyester, Thailand was the seventh largest producer of filament yarns and eighth largest in staple fibre. In terms of demand, Thailand ranked eighth in polyester filament yarn and fibre consumption.
Manmade fibre/filament production in Thailand had been impressive during the 1990s growing at a rate of 16% per annum. However, this rate fell dramatically to a little over 0.2% per annum between 2000 and 2011 and recovered dramatically in 2011. This is attributed to the capacity addition done during the past couple of years. Polyester production, the major among manmade fibre/filament jumped voer 35% during 2011. Viscose fibre production too was up but not as polyester. Acrylic and nylon production to grew impressively in 2011.
