VISCOSE RAYON in Technical Textiles and Nonwovens

World Market Forecasts to 2010

Viscose rayon consumption to grow faster than all other fibres at 6.2% p.a. to 2010 Growth in wipes and other nonwovens will offset weak demand in traditional end-uses

This report describes and forecasts world and regional demand for each of 30 different technical textile end-use products containing viscose rayon and the consequent consumption of viscose rayon in each of its forms (fibre, yarn and fabric).

Viscose Rayon in Technical Textiles and Nonwovens: World Market Forecasts to 2010
Contents
Chapter 1: Overview: Introduction, report aims, scope and structure Chapter 2: The Relative Importance of Viscose in the Technical Textiles Market: provides summary forecasts for the technical textiles market in total to 2010, comparing man-made fibres and polymers with other broad fibre groups. It then looks at inter-fibre competition between viscose and other individual fibre types, such as polyester. Chapter 3: Viscose End-Use Products and Markets: draws on the detailed Forecast Tables in Chapter 4 to highlight some of the important trends in the use of viscose in technical textiles and nonwovens. The analysis includes 48 Exhibits and is divided into six Sections: Overall End-Use Consumption of Viscose End-Use Consumption of Viscose by Polymer/Fibre Form (Yarn Type) (e.g. spun staple) End-Use Consumption of Viscose by Application Area (e.g. Medtech) and End-Use Product (e.g. wipes) The Highest Volume and Fastest Growing Product Markets End-Use Consumption of Viscose by Region (e.g. North America) End-Use Consumption of Viscose by Fabric and Other Final Textile Product Type (e.g. nonwoven fabric)

Chapter 4: Viscose End-Use Products: Detailed Forecast Tables Part A: Viscose World Totals, 1995-2010: 5 Summary Tables which split total viscose consumption by individual product, by region, by application area, by polymer/fibre form (yarn type) and by fabric and final textile product type for 1995 and annually from 2000 to 2010 Part B: End-Use Consumption Analysis by Product against Polymer/Fibre Form (Yarn Type): 6 Tables which provide estimates of consumption for each of 30 viscose products across each of 4 polymer/fibre forms for 1995 and annually from 2000 to 2010 Part C: End-Use Consumption Analysis by Product against Region: 9 Tables which provide estimates of consumption for each of 30 viscose products across each of 8 regions over the period 1995-2010 Part D: End-Use Consumption Analysis by Product against Fabric and Final Textile Product Type: 7 Tables which provide estimates of consumption for each of 30 viscose products across each of 5 fabric and other final textile product types for 1995 and annually from 2000 to 2010 Part E: End-Use Consumption Analysis by Fabric and Other Final Textile Product Type against Polymer/Fibre Form: 6 Tables which provide estimates of the use of each of 5 final textile product types against 4 polymer/fibre forms for viscose overall for 1995 and annually from 2000 to 2010 Part F: End-Use Consumption Analysis by Region against Polymer/Fibre Form: 6 Tables which provide estimates of the use of each of 4 polymer/fibre forms in each of 8 regions for viscose overall for 1995 and annually from 2000 to 2010 Part G: End-Use Consumption Analysis by Region against Other Final Textile Product Type: 7 Tables which provide estimates of the use of each of 5 final textile product types in each of 8 regions for viscose overall for 1995 and annually from 2000 to 2010 Appendix 1: Appendix 2: Definitions and Assumptions The DRA Textile Products End-Use Consumption Forecasting System

Examples of Forecast Tables


Which products will be the largest consumers of viscose? How will the usage of viscose be split by polymer/fibre form in 2010? How quickly is nonwovens usage of viscose growing in North America?

Which products use viscose in staple fibre form? How much viscose is consumed in Western Europe in nonwovens?

The report describes and forecasts to 2010 the end-use consumption:


of 30 separate end-use products containing viscose rayon (see the list opposite) for the world overall and for 8 different regions: North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, South Asia, North East Asia, South East Asia and Rest of World (Middle East, Central Asia, Africa and Oceania).

The 30 end-use products containing viscose rayon reported on separately are:


Application Area and Product Clothtech: interlinings, woven & knitted; interlinings, nonwoven Hometech: wipes, woven & knitted; wipes, nonwoven; mattress tickings; platform cloth Indutech: conveyor belting; hoses; drive belting; abrasives; wipes, woven & knitted; wipes, nonwoven; liquid filters, nonwoven; battery separators, etc; fibrefill gowns and drapes, nonwoven; woundcare, woven & knitted; woundcare, nonwoven; sterile packaging; coverstock; cotton wool; wipes Mobiltech: car tyre cord; CV tyre cord; auto drive belt; auto hose Protech: FR clothing; NBC suits

It also makes derived forecasts for the components from which these end-use products are made: the 4 different types of polymer/fibre forms used to make these end-use products: staple fibre, spun staple yarn, textile multifilament, high tenacity multifilament. the 5 different types of fabric and other textile product used to make these end-use products: unspun fibre, woven fabric, knitted fabric, nonwoven fabric, yarn type products (e.g. braids).
