DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/v39c78/polyester_chain) has announced the addition of the "Polyester Chain Report 2012" report to their offering.
Global capacities for polyester fiber reached 20.7 million ton a year by the end of 2011, where capacity increase for the year was 2.66 million ton. China was the main contributor to capacity expansion in 2011 and also the most important supplier of polyester fibers. In 2011, China has added 2.22 million ton of polyester fibre capacity taking its total capacity to 12.68 million ton a year.
Total production capacity of polyester filament industry increased 5.4 million tons in 2011, as pol-yester manufacturer in 2010 earned enough and developed a strong will to expansion the capacity.
