Global trends in fibre prices, production and consumption, April 2017


Report summary

Trends in the fibre sector are an important indicator of future trends in the textile and apparel industry 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.

Furthermore, it provides forecasts of cotton demand, supply and prices for the forthcoming year. World production of man-made fibres rose in 2016, but the growth rate was lower than that achieved in the previous year. Production of natural fibres also rose in 2016 following a decline in 2015, and the share of natural fibres increased.

In the 2016/17 season, demand for cotton is set to rise but demand will still exceed supply. Furthermore, the price of cotton is set to rise during 2016/17, but thereafter any upward pressure on the cotton price is likely to dissipate.
