US: Preferred fibre usage “set to grow further”
Usage of preferred fibres such as identity cotton and recycled polyester is set to grow further, says the first Preferred Fibers Market Report from non-profit organisation Textile Exchange.
The results of the survey-driven report “leave no room for doubt about the growth of preferred fibre usage and the top users of these fibres”, the organisation said.
Textile Exchange said its investment into preferred fibres would also be reflected in the release of its new Material Snapshots, which will be highlighted at TexWorld on 23 July, and at the TE Conference in Portland, Oregon, on 10-12 November.
