The World Fibre & Indonesia - Trends in Demand and Supply is the Seventh annual compendium in a series from YarnsandFibers covering the trends in global demand and supply of textile fibre/filament industry. The compilation covers all major fibre producing countries accounting for 85% of global pro-duction and consumption. Time series on trends from 1990 to 2011 on production, imports, exports and apparent consumption is presented country-wise for 13 countries including all major Asian coun-tries, USA and West Europe.
In this Report we have captured the trends seen in 2011 in textile fibre/filament industry including natural fibres, particularly cotton. The analysis assesses the positions of fibres/filaments industry as events unfolded.
The Report s 20 pages are richly annotated with authoritative and unbiased objective description, and hard-to-find statistical facts. The report also provides unequivocal views on future potential while throwing light on the prevailing climate in key regional markets and projections upto 2017 of availabil-ity and demand for all fibres.
The Report is divided into two sections: Fibre-wise View and Region/Country wise View.
The first section covers World production of manmade and natural fibers for the period 1990 to 2011.
The second section covers details on Indonesia. Tabulation also includes volumes of capacity, produc-tion, export, import and apparent consumption, along with CARGs for the periods 1990-2000, 2000-2011 and the growth rate in 2011.
Indonesia remained fifth in global manmade fibre/filament supplies and accounted for 3.4% of produc tion and 2.6% in consumption of the same in 2011. During the year, it produced 1.41 million tons of manmade fibre/filament and consumed about 1.57 million tons during the year. It is one of the major importers and consumers of cotton.
Indonesia accounts for 13.7% of world s viscose staple fibre supply having an advantage of domestic wood and pulp supply. It was the second largest viscose staple producer in 2011 and largest exporter overtaking China. Over 29% of world VSF export originates from Indonesia. In PFY, Indonesia ranked fifth in production during 2011 and seventh in PSF. As exporter, Indonesia ranked fifth in PFY, seventh in VFY and ninth in PSF.
During 2011, manmade production increased 2.2% while consumption rose 2.6%. Manmade fi-bre/filament production has been slowing down rapidly in Indonesia in the last 10 years. During 1990s, it recorded an annual increase of 15% in production of manmade fibre/filaments. This rate of growth slowed down to 0.5% per annum between 2000 and 2011.
