Understand the landscape for manmade and natural fibres and explore how different fibre types can be used to meet global needs.

Gain invaluable insight into the evolving dynamics of the fibres market

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.

Our complete fibres services provide you with a combination of commercial data, historic pricing, price discovery and strategic insight for all the major synthetic and natural fibres,  helping yarn producers, spinners and weavers and buyers, throughout the chain, make the right decisions about global markets.
