Global yarn stocks rose in the 3rd quarter of 2010 as compared to the previous quarter even though Asia's yarn inventories fell slightly. In comparison to the 3rd quarter of 2009 yarn stocks worldwide increased as a result of much higher stocks in South America and despite lower stocks in Asia and Europe.

In comparison to last year's quarter all regions recorded higher output levels. With a jump of +14.7%, South America's yarn production surged impressively followed by Asia (+12.0%), North America (+11.9%) and Europe (+0.9%).

Also worldwide fabric production continued to increase by +1.9% in the 3rd quarter of 2010.
