2018 Preferred Fiber and Materials Market Report

Donna Worley

Textile Exchange’s 2018 Preferred Fiber and Materials Market Report (PFMR) is a unique analysis of preferred fibers focusing on the industry’s supply side, analyzing production volumes, availability and emerging fiber trends.

The report found that Lyocell production increased to 4.5% of all man-made cellulosics, up from 3% in 2016, and recycled polyester held steady at about 14% of total polyester fiber production while preferred cottons (which include organic and Better Cotton Initiative) remained 19% of total virgin cotton production.
