Despite a drop in Europe, global yarn output rose in the second quarter of 2104 from its previous quarter, due to higher yarn production in Asia, South and North America.

“On an annualised basis, yarn production increased, only as a result of higher output in Asia with South America, North America and Europe recording reductions,” the latest report of the International Textile Machinery Federation (ITMF) reveals.

Asia’s production is traditional significantly higher in the second quarter, compared to the first quarter, as a result of fewer working days in China in the first quarter, due to the Chinese New Year holidays.

Worldwide yarn stocks remained practically unchanged in the second quarter, when compared with its previous quarter, with stocks falling in South America and Europe, offset by higher inventories in Asia.

Year-on-year, global yarn stocks jumped due to higher inventories in Europe and especially in Asia and also despite, plummeting inventories in South America, while yarn orders in the reporting quarter were up in Brazil but down in Europe, both from a year earlier and also previous quarter.

The ITMF report reveals that global fabric production rose in the second quarter with all regions except, Europe contributing to this growth and on an annualised basis, world fabric output also rose, with Asia, Europe and South America recording higher output.

World fabric stocks in the quarter under review were lower due to declines in inventories in South America and Europe, while inventories in Asia and North America increased slightly.

Also on an annualised basis, global fabric inventories fell due to reductions in South America and Europe and despite higher inventories in Asia and North America.

Fabric orders in Europe recorded a reduction in the second quarter, while they rose in Brazil and year-on-year fabric orders were higher in Europe but lower in Brazil.

The ITMF report says estimates for yarn production for the third quarter of 2014 are positive in Asia, North and South America but negative in Europe, while estimates for fabric production are positive in Asia and South America, but negative in Europe.

The outlook for yarn production for the fourth quarter of 2014 is positive in Asia and stable in Europe and the outlook for fabric production is positive in Asia and stable in Europe.

In comparison to the first quarter, global yarn production increased in the second quarter by 15.9% due to higher output in Asia which was up 17.0%, South America 5.9% and North America 3.5% and irrespective of fall in production by 3.2% in Europe.

Also in comparison to last year’s second quarter, global yarn output was up by 11.1%. This increase was a result of a surge in yarn production in Asia of 12.5%, while output declined in South America by 14.5%, North America 1.1% and Europe by a marginal 0.3%.
