The world fiber consumption is in the third growth stage

the world chemical fiber industry is undergoing a new round of structural adjustment. At the same time, the world economic environment is still complex, the huge fluctuations in raw material prices, the changes in the supply-demand relationship of the world textile industry chain and the changes in fiber consumption structure have posed new challenges to the future development of the chemical fiber industry. It can be seen that the living environment of the chemical fiber industry is undergoing profound changes. At the 21st China International Chemical fiber conference held from September 7 to 9, experts from Japan, Europe and other countries conducted in-depth analysis on the changes in the world fiber consumption structure and the forecast of supply and demand

Japanese chemical fiber products are developing towards high added value

according to the statistics of fiber organon and Japan Chemical Fiber Association, since the beginning of the 20th century, the world chemical fiber consumption has experienced three growth stages. The first growth stage was from 1990 to 1937. During this stage, the world fiber consumption increased from 4million tons to 10million tons, and the per capita fiber consumption increased from 2kg to 4kg. The main fiber consumption variety is cotton fiber. The second growth stage was from 1945 to 1995. During this stage, the fiber consumption increased from 10million tons to 40million tons, and the per capita fiber consumption increased from 4kg to 8kg. The main fiber consumption varieties are cotton fiber and composite. Therefore, remember that when selecting 1, the upper pressure plate should be about 5mm away from the test piece and should be carefully treated as fiber. The third growth stage is from 1995 to 2030. In this stage, experts predict that the fiber consumption will increase from 40million tons to 140million tons, and the per capita fiber consumption is expected to increase from 8kg to 16KG. The main fiber consumption is synthetic fiber

according to the world fiber consumption survey released by fao/icac, the growth of world fiber demand is mainly due to the growth of fiber demand in developing countries. The per capita demand for fiber in developing countries continued to grow, even during the 2008 economic crisis. Experts predict that in the coming period of time, fiber consumption will always be in the third growth stage

according to the statistics of fiber organon and Japan Chemical Fiber Association, in 2013, the world's excess capacity of synthetic fiber was 19million tons, and the proportion of excess capacity reached 26.4%. However, when various types of shared products were popular. It is estimated that by 2020, the world's actual demand for synthetic fiber will be 71.7 million tons, and the excess capacity will reach 21.7 million tons. The phenomenon of excess capacity is still obvious. The world's chemical fiber industry needs a change from quantity to quality. However, it is worth noting that from 2013 to 2014, the proportion of overcapacity has decreased from 26% to 23%. Ueda Yingzhi analyzed that when the economy develops to a certain extent, it will be very important for chemical fiber enterprises to turn their products into high value-added products, such as "technical textiles"

according to the statistics of fiber organon and Japan Chemical Fiber Association, in the chemical fiber market in the United States and Japan, chemical fiber products are more turned to the application fields with high product added value, and non consumer fibers account for more than 80% of the total chemical fiber applications. In East Asia, in 2013, the application of non consumer chemical fiber accounted for 55% of the total application of chemical fiber. It is expected that by 2020, the application of non consumer chemical fiber will account for 63% of the total application of chemical fiber

the promotion of high value-added products will drive the increase in the demand for high-performance and high-function fibers. According to the change of domestic and foreign sales data of textile/chemical fiber products of Japanese companies provided by Fuji Keizai team, the consumption of high-performance fibers in Japan will increase from about 42billion yen in 2012 to about 98billion yen in 2020, and the sales of high-function fibers will also increase from 9.4 billion yen to 12.8 billion yen during this period

Hideki Ueda also said that in the face of global warming, pollution, shortage of water resources, resource depletion and other environmental problems, we should develop from the aspects of energy conservation, new energy, air purification, sewage treatment, development of bio based fiber materials, development of recyclable fiber materials, etc. At the same time, in order to further strengthen information exchange and cooperation between China and Japan and achieve mutual benefit and win-win results, the two countries should make efforts to expand the Asian Free Trade Area in the future

Hideki Ueda proposed that the common tasks faced by all countries in the chemical fiber industry at present are: environmental issues and product safety issues; Improve the business environment and trade convenience between countries, such as unifying product standards or eliminating tariff barriers; Make use of the advantages of various countries to further expand the emerging markets in Asia; Countries in the Asian region have further strengthened cooperation in the field of product fashion and brand

the output of European chemical fiber products will be more balanced

according to the statistics of the European Chemical Fiber Association, the world's chemical fiber output continues to increase. In 2004, the chemical fiber output was 39.26 million tons, and in 2014, it rapidly increased to 66.05 million tons. In 2014, China's chemical fiber output was 43.323 million tons, accounting for 66% of the world's total chemical fiber output, followed by Europe and India

among the world's chemical fiber products, the output of polyester is increasing. In 2004, the polyester output was 24.4 million tons, accounting for 62% of the total chemical fiber. In 2014, the world polyester output increased to 48.8 million tons, accounting for 74%

2014, the output of polyester fiber accounted for 30% of European chemical fiber products; The output of nylon fiber accounts for 12%; The output of polyolefin fiber accounts for 2%, and the consumption demand of this part shows a rigid 3%; The output of cellulose fiber accounts for 16%. According to experts' prediction, the output of European chemical fiber products will be more balanced

according to fr? Dric van houte, President of the European chemical fiber Union, the economic growth in Europe is still weak in recent years, which also has an impact on the textile field. In the European textile field, the growth of automotive textiles is better; The consumption sector is facing strong import growth difficulties; Overall, the growth of construction textiles is slow

in 2015, the European economy grew slowly, which means that the chemical fiber market will usher in opportunities for continuous improvement. At the same time, the decline of crude oil prices and the instability of raw materials also pose challenges to fiber producers. At present, the chemical fiber production capacity in Europe has been adjusted, but there will be different reconstruction with the market changes, and differentiated fiber products related to the green economy are also being developed. At present, European countries attach great importance to the investment and modernization of the chemical fiber industry. It is expected that the growth of chemical fiber products will be more balanced in 2016

at present, the European chemical fiber market is mainly facing challenges such as overcapacity, dumping, subsidies and trade distortions. In order to cope with these challenges, chemical fiber producers need to protect their own interests by using policies and regulations. At the same time, European countries need to establish a stricter legislative framework, for example, to further carry out anti-dumping and countervailing measures

in order to further improve product quality, European chemical fiber manufacturers have invested more than 1billion euros in chemical fiber product innovation within five years. The innovation area mainly focuses on improving the comfort of fibers and yarns, endowing fibers and yarns with better mechanical properties and functions, and recycling fibers. Meanwhile, European chemical fiber manufacturers rely on good quality management and standards to produce high-quality fibers. European technical standards and testing methods will continue to support industrial development

Fr? Dric van houte pointed out that innovation, product differentiation, production flexibility, sustainability and global cooperation are related to the future of the European chemical fiber industry
