Nov '11
The International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) released State of Trade Report for second quarter, 2011. Only as a result of higher output in Asia in general and China in particular global yarn production increased in the 2nd quarter of 2011 in comparison to the previous quarter. Also global fabric production rose in the 2nd quarter due to higher output in Asia and South America while production in Europe and North America fell.

It is important to note that production in the 1st quarter in China is traditionally lower as a result of fewer working days due to the Chinese New Year holidays. Compared with the previous year, global yarn production increased somewhat due to higher output in Asia and North America and despite lower production in South America and Europe while global fabric production dropped with all regions suffering declines except for South America.

Global yarn stocks soared in the 2nd quarter of 2011 compared with the previous quarter especially due to higher stocks in South America and Asia, while those in Europe and North America remained practically unchanged. Year-on-year yarn inventories jumped, especially in Asia and South America. Fabric stocks were up in North and South America in the 2nd quarter of 2011 as compared to the previous one, while those in Europe and Asia fell slightly.

On an annual basis fabric stocks jumped in North and South America, irrespective of slight falls in Europe and Asia. Global yarn and fabric orders fell in Europe and Brazil both in comparison with the previous quarter and with the 2nd quarter of 2010.

Estimates for yarn and fabric production in the 3rd quarter of 2011 in most countries is either negative or unchanged. In the 4th quarter the outlook for yarn and fabric production improves with most countries seeing higher or unchanged output levels.

In comparison with the previous quarter, world yarn production increased in the 2nd quarter of 2011 by +12.1%. While Asia recorded an increase of +13.9%, all other regions recorded decreases (South America -7.3%, Europe -6.5% and North America -3.1%). Year-on-year global yarn production rose slightly by+1.0% due to higher output in Asia and North America by +1.8% and +0.4%, respectively, and despite lower levels in Europe (-8.3%) and in South America (-16.3%).
