Market Sector

Textiles & Apparel

While cotton continues to be the dominant fiber used in textiles and apparel manufacturing, the use of alternative fibers, such as viscose and polyester, has been increasing. Demand for garments with specific properties and diverse applications as well as challenging crop cycles and competition for land, make this an increasingly dynamic sector.


We focus our analysis on the viscose sector, both in terms of its role as the key end-use for dissolving pulp but also in its interaction with competing fibers.

Driven by increasing Chinese demand, which has more than doubled in the last decade, and a growing number of industrial and medical applications, we continue to see new viscose capacity being installed. Our reports and forecasts track these capacity additions as well as all other key market developments.
