World Japan Fiber Report 2009

The “World Fibre & Japan – Trends in Demand and Supply” is the Fifth compendium from YarnsandFi-bers covering the trends in global demand and supply of textile fibre/filament industry. In this Report we have assesses the impact of the Global Slowdown on textile fibre/filament industry including natural fibres, particularly cotton, and how each country performed in this scenario. The analysis assesses the positions of fibres/filaments industry as events unfolded. The evolution of Global Slowdown and its spread across the world has been critically documented in perspective of textile in-dustry. The demand crunch began in mid-2008 and continued into 2009. Also documented are the approaches of developed countries and the stimulus packages announced by various governments.
Japan has been losing steadily its share in global fibre/filament market. In 1990, it was the seventh largest producer and by 2000 it lost two ranks falling to ninth position. The 2008 slowdown took a further toll on Japan’s manmade fibre industry. It ranked twelfth producing just 747,000 tons of manmade fibre, thus implying that it was losing rapidly than it did in the 1990s. Although, its rank has declined over the years, it is still among the top 10 producers and exporters in many segments. In acrylic, Japan was the fourth largest producer and the top exporter in 2008. Similarly, it ranked se-venth in nylons. In polyester, it ranked eighth in filament and ninth in staple fibre production. In vis-cose, it was fourth largest filament producer and seventh in staple fibre. It was also the eighth largest exporter of viscose staple fibre.
