Forecasts of regional and global end use demand for textile fibres
Consumer demand for textile products—including clothing and home textiles—is predicted to grow by 2.8% per annum between 2015 and 2025, reaching 119 mn tons. However, growth will be driven almost entirely by a rise in demand for textile products made from synthetic fibres.
As a result of these trends, the share of non-cotton textile products in total consumer demand for textile products will increase from 73% to 79% between 2015 and 2025 whereas the share of cotton textile products will fall from 27% to just 21%. Furthermore, demand for cotton textile products at the end of this ten-year period will still be less than the level of demand seen in 2010.
These predictions are based on forecasts of end use demand for textile fibres, which equates to the consumption of textile fibres by the final consumer. As such, it can be used as a measure of demand by consumers in different regions and countries.
"Forecasts of regional and global end use demand for textile fibres"—originally published in issue 188 of Textile Outlook International—contains 13 pages of analysis of data by fibre type and region. It also provides forecasts for global end use demand for textiles made from cotton and non-cotton fibres up to 2025.
