China’s fibre consumption to reach 51.5 million tons by 2015
Mr Sun Ruizhe, Vice President for China National Textile and Apparel Council as well as editor-in-chief for China Textile Leader, recently estimated that: “overall fibre consumption in China will top 51.5 million tons by the year-end of 2015, increasing roughly 10 millions ton compared with the year-end of 2010.”
In 2010 , overall fibre consumption reached 41.3 million tons, indicating that China’s buoyant domestic market will stimulate positive growth for the next five years, making it a marketplace rich with opportunity for industry suppliers from around the world.
Yarn Expo is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry – CCPIT, China Cotton Textile Association, China Wool Textile Association, China Chemical Fibres Association, China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association, and China Textile Information Centre.
