How can we help?

Demand for manmade and natural fibres is growing in many end-uses, which are all around us. Explore how the different fibre types can be used to meet the market’s diverse needs across the world.

Overview

Robust fibres demand is driven by the improved purchasing power of a growing global population. Polyester meets a significant share of this need, but demand for other fibre types is expanding fast too.

Filament demand is growing more rapidly than staple, driven by apparel markets and technical applications. Technical fibre demand is diversifying into polyesters, polyamides, cellulosics, aramids and olefin-based products too. 

Sustainability is now fundamental to the fibres industry, with new techniques developing towards a truly circular economy.

How can companies target new opportunities? What are the trends that will shape fibres markets in the long term?
