Global trends in fibre prices, production and consumption, April 2018
published in Issue 191, April 2018
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 2017, and the growth rate was slightly higher than that achieved in the previous year. Production of natural fibres also rose, due mainly to an increase in the production of cotton. In the 2017/18 season, the supply of cotton is set to exceed demand and, as a result, stocks will rise. The price of cotton in 2017/18 is expected to remain the same as in 2016/17, but some slight upward pressure on the price is likely thereafter.
