When the Dornbirn Man-Made Fibers congress was first launched in the early 1960s, synthetic fibres represented just 5% of total fibre production, but today they account for over half and this share is set to rise even further in the coming years.

New research report “Outlook for Man-Made Fibres and Technical Textiles: Report from the 50th Dornbirn Congress” drawn up by Textiles Intelligence has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.

The newly published report reviews and analyses several papers presented at the 50th Dornbirn Man-Made Fibers congress, held in September 2011, on the key topics, including:

  •     cotton and man-made fibre demand to 2060 by country and region, and future limitations on the supply of cotton;
  •     reviews of some of the latest developments in cellulosic fibres, biopolymers and polyester recycling from a number of companies, including Advansa, DuPont, Filature Miroglio, Hohenstein Institute, Kelheim, Lenzing, NatureWorks, RadiciGroup, Rhodia, RWTH Aachen University, STFI and TITK;
  •     outlook for the future which looks at the role of green chemistry and the future challenges facing the man-made fibre industry.
