Growth for the viscose filament yarn (VSF) yarn industry is difficult, especially in China, due to environmental issues, said a top official from PT Sunrise Bumi Textiles, an Indonesia based leading yarn manufacturer and a part of India based Aditya Birla Group. The industry also faces certain challenges such as over-supply of yarns and fluctuating prices of yarns and raw materials.

The global trade of rayon and rayon-blended yarn is around 587,000 metres per year, and the share of Aditya Birla Yarns, which includes Sunrise Bumi Textiles, is around 13 per cent of the global market, said Naresh Saneja, senior vice-president (works) at Sunrise Bumi Textiles, in an interview with Fibre2Fashion.

Poly/rayon 65/35 and 50/50 are the most common blends, and rayon/cotton 50/50 for the denim industry is also popular in the export market, said Saneja.

Talking about the innovations in machinery that yarn makers seek, Saneja said, “Machinery makers are working for higher productivity/automation to reduce costs besides trying to upgrade existing machines as well as new machines to give more value addition to the final product. The latest innovations in case of rayon yarns are open-end and vortex yarn for high-end markets in comparison to the traditional ring-spun yarns.”

Sunrise Bumi plans to upgrade/replace its machines and develop more value-added products. For 102,648 spindles, it has a variety of value-added products equivalent to 50 per cent of the total production. The company aims to take it up to 60 per cent by end of this year, and to convert its maximum production to the value-added range. (KD)
