Outlook for Man-Made Fibres and Technical Textiles: Report from the 50th Dornbirn Congress

The 50th Dornbirn Man-Made Fibers Congress, held in September 2011, attracted 740 attendees from 30 countries. When the congress was first launched in the early 1960s, synthetic fibres represented just 5% of total fibre production, but today they account for over half and this share is set to rise even further in the coming years.
