The “World Fibre & USA– 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. 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.
USA was world’s third largest producer of fibres/filaments in 2011 with production at 5.09 million tons and accounting for 7.1% of total production. It was second largest supplier of nylons, third largest in cotton and fourth largest in PSF and sixth in PFY. It is the top exporter of cotton, while ranking third in nylon trade. It held sixth position in export of PSF and eighth in exports of VFY and VSF. In PFY trade, USA ranks ninth. It was also the third largest importer of fibre/ filaments during 2011. While USA produces all types of fibres/filament, its mainstay has been cotton and nylon where it has a major share in world supply. Polyester staple fibre too was large but had a smaller share. It has stopped producing viscose fibre/filament and acrylic staple fibre.
Both manmade fibre/filament and cotton production in USA has declining rapidly over the years. Dur-ing the 1990s, production of manmade fibre/filament increased at the rate 0.4% per annum while cot-ton output grew at 1% per annum. However, the decade of 2000, production of manmade textile started declining faster than ever, recording a fall of 5.4% per annum during the period 2000-11. Meanwhile cotton production too declined at a rate of 1.4% per annum in line with shrinking acreage at 2.5% a year. In 2011, the fall continued.
