CIRFS: European Man-made Fibres Association, the Brussels-based association representing the European man-made fibres industry, has just issued its latest statistical report on developments in the world man-made fibres industry.

The report, “Information on Man-made Fibres”, is the 47th edition of this valuable summary of all available information about this dynamic and growing industry. It brings together data on

• Production of acrylic, cellulosic, polyamide, polyester, polypropylene, wool and cotton, in the world as a whole and in all the countries for which data exists;
• Consumption and uses;
• World trade in man-made fibres, yarns and fabrics.

CIRFS Director General Frédéric VAN HOUTE comments:

“This CIRFS report confirms the strong recovery of the world's man-made fibres industry in 2010, after the recession year of 2009. It shows the huge scale of global man-made fibres production, and their dominant share in world demand for fibres. 2011 is seeing a further recovery worldwide in man-made fibres production, albeit at a slower pace, but global growth will certainly continue in the future.

“Europe is the world's second largest producer of man-made fibres (after China). It is the world's largest exporter of acrylic and cellulosic fibres, and the biggest producer of ultra-high strength fibres and of polypropylene fibres. It is one of the global leaders in man-made fibres innovation and quality. Its output is used in a huge variety of applications, including fashion, home textiles and a lot of different technical uses. The European man-made fibres industry is the largest supplier of raw materials to the European textile industry.

“Europe is also a leader in sustainable production of man-made fibres, using clean energy sources, with a low carbon footprint, with many raw materials based on renewable or recycled resources. Man-made fibres are light, durable, and their production requires little land and water compared with alternative products. They are extensively used in many environmental protection products and projects, such as filtration, flood prevention and protection of crops from climatic conditions.

“In this vast global industry, every producer and user of man-made fibres, as well as governments, banks, investors and consultants can benefit from the best possible information about industry trends and market size. This CIRFS publication is an important resource for all concerned, and CIRFS is delighted to make it available.”

CIRFS is the association for Europe's € 11 billion man-made fibres industry, representing the industry to the European authorities and providing the industry with a wide range of services. Its members cover more than 85% of European man-made fibres output.
