In 2010, Chinese viscose fiber industry was characterized by booming capacity expansion, fierce product homogenization competition, as well as rising enterprise cost due to a raw material price hike. As a result, viscose fiber manufacturers witnessed declined profitability and had to find their way out by vigorously developing differentiated fibers to raise the added value of products.
The bamboo viscose fiber emerged in recent years has blossomed into a highlight in the viscose fiber industry with the following two advantages: firstly, abundant sources of raw materials, stable and relatively low cost; secondly, excellent performance, comparatively high-end positioning of terminal products which enjoy higher sales price than common fabrics. As a result, an increasing number of downstream enterprises will tap into bamboo fiber industry. In 2010, the market size of bamboo viscose fiber in China was just shy of 50 kilotons and merely occupied a very small proportion of the entire viscose fiber market. Along with the entry of more enterprises into the bamboo viscose fiber field in the future, bamboo viscose fiber will embrace mushroom growth.
The report casts light on not only the development of global viscose fiber industry and the operating environment and market development of Chinese viscose fiber industry, but also key manufacturers of viscose fiber in China and worldwide.
