Where is rayon produced in the world?
Initially, the manufacturing of rayon has resorted to countries like the United States and The United Kingdom however there has been a large shift in the production centres. Asian countries like India, China, Pakistan and China have now overlooked rayon production. This shift is due to several reasons such as the availability of cheap labour and not so strict manufacturing regulations.
In 2018, 5.8 million metric tonnes of viscose fiber were produced globally and about 65% of this was solely manufactured by China. The Lenzing (Austria) and Aditya Birla Group (Grasim) are the two leading producers of viscose fiber in the world.
