The growth of cellulose fiber capacity has been slowing down, with an average of less than 7% in recent four years. Market applications expand further with frequent emergence of new yarns. However, some cellulose fiber plants were shut down by increasing environmental pressure, so the price skyrocketed by more than 3000yuan/mt in 2015. Meanwhile, the product is gradually renamed and producers put more efforts on environmental protection. Coupled with the appearance of new downstream products, cellulose fiber seems to welcome new cycle of growth.
However, the external environment of rising US dollar index, new lows of crude oil, plummeting Chinese yuan, remarkable volatility of China stock market and faster outward transfer of China textile industry indicates no easy cellulose fiber industry operation.
It is the best of times, it is the worst of times. Will cellulose fiber continue to be “a black horse” in 2016? How will exchange rate influence dissolving pulp import? What should cellulose fiber enterprises do to improve the environment? How to enhance image of cellulose fiber? What about downstream cost advantage in different countries or regions? Let us find answers at “2016 China Hangzhou Cellulose Fiber (Viscose) Industry Forum”.
CCFGroup has been engaged in serving and assisting the industry for years. Cellulose fiber industry forum as our brand gives in-depth understanding and offers platform for high efficiency business communication.
We sincerely look forward to meeting you in G20’s location of 2016!
