Demand for acrylic staple fibre is on a consistent decline since 2001 reports YnFx

The US$550 million acrylic fiber industry has been reporting poor performance over the past few years. Sixty-one producers spread across 56 countries with a little less than 3 million tons capacity is facing a severe demand crunch and sharp rise in input cost. In 2007, consumption declined 6% over 2006 while production fell by over 9%.

The US$550 million acrylic fiber industry has been reporting poor performance over the past few years. Sixty-one producers spread across 56 countries with a little less than 3 million tons capacity is facing a severe demand crunch and sharp rise in input cost. In 2007, consumption declined 6% over 2006 while production fell by over 9%.

The predicament was the doubling of prices of acrylonitrile ? the major raw material, in the last four years. Product price during the same period was up by 50-60% implying the inability of the ASF producers to pass-on the rising costs. Further, ASF producers were seeking alternative for acrylonitrile or diverting to other form of production ? particularly - acrylic filament, a precursor to carbon fibre production.

In this scenario, investment is hard to come in the acrylic fibre business. Ac-cording to YnFx demand for ASF would increase at an annual rate of growth of 2.3% between 2008 and 2013, with demand peaking in 2009. With no major capacity built-up and slow pace on demand would see capacity utilization rising and the reduction in oversupply gap.
