In the 2nd quarter of 2009 global textile production experienced an impressive rebound. Both global yarn and fabric production surged driven by Asia in general and China in particular.

Year-on-year global fabric production was up by +3.2% due to higher outputs in Asia (+6.7%), while North America, Europe and South America still recorded lower production levels of -22.5, -18.8 and -3.1%, respectively.

Global yarn inventories were down by -3.0% in the 2nd quarter of 2009 as compared to the previous one. Yarn stocks plummeted in South America by -15.3% and decreased in Asia by -3.4% but remained stable in Europe and North America.On an annual basis yarn stocks were down by -1.3% globally, with South America and Asia seeing a reduction of -6.1% and -1.7%.
