Statistics: Fibre Consumption for Technical Textiles in Taiwan, 2010 edition
Man-made fibre production in Taiwan increased by 3.9% to 2.1 mn tons in 2009, following an 18.6% decline in the previous year. The increase was due entirely to a 14.2% rise in staple fibre output as filament yarn production dropped for the second consecutive year.

At the same time domestic consumption of man-made fibres in Taiwan continued to decline—by 6.5% to 1.2 mn tons, following a 17.1% drop in 2008. The explanation lies in the fact that the entire increase in man-made fibre production in 2009 was exported. Overall, exports accounted for 41.1% of man-made fibre production in 2009, up from 34.5% a year earlier as domestic consumption declined. In the case of staple fibres alone, exports represented 70.9% of total production.

There was also a decline in production of man-made fibre yarn in 2009. The main cause was a decline in domestic consumption of yarn for fabric production—which was reflected, in turn, in a fall in fabric output. However, producers of both yarn and fibre stepped up their export efforts and, despite declines in exports to several countries, foreign sales increased as Taiwanese exporters were resilient in finding new markets in which to sell their products.

Nonwoven fabric production fell by 6.6% in 2009, following a similar 6.3% decline a year earlier.

However, production is expected to recover in 2010 with growth forecast at 11.4%. In terms of production process, the strongest growth is expected to be in chemical bonding, followed by thermal bonding and spunlacing. As a result, production of spunlace nonwovens will fall just short of needlepunching production—the most important production process. In terms of end use sector, the strongest growth is expected to be in geotextiles and agriculture followed by medical and hygiene. As a result, production for medical and hygiene end uses will remain the largest.
