Trends in the fibre sector are an important indicator of future trends in textiles and apparel as a whole. This report provides an overview of general trends in fibre prices, production and consumption by country and region. It also provides insight, information, data and analysis of the key fibre types -- natural and man-made -- and provides forecasts of cotton and wool prices for the forthcoming year as the world emerges from recession. World fibre production rose in 2011 but the growth rate was not as high as that achieved in the previous year. Furthermore, demand for man-made fibres grew at a faster rate than demand for natural fibres.
