To stay abreast of worldwide changes in favor of sustainability, the new textile yearbook will for the first time ever subdivide the dynamic viscose staple fiber market into spinning processes. It means a structuring into the viscose process for standard and eco-friendly viscose, modified viscose process for modal fibers, lyocell technology and acetate process.
Lyocell fiber production in 2021 experienced the fastest growth rate in relative terms in the world fiber industry and several investments make sure persistent dynamics in future. In addition, a couple of textile recycling technologies for wood-based cellulosic fibers will be introduced.
Works for the new report are in full swing and quite obvious is the trend that previous year’s supply witnessed fastest expansion of manmade fibers in more than a decade while both natural fibers and spunlaids suffered from distinct decreases.
