Product Overview   

Luxury fibres are among the most expensive textile materials. Their scarcity adds to their appeal, and enhances their status. The market for luxury fibres is highly volatile, and raw material supplies and prices are subject to violent fluctuations as climatic extremes and political upheavals take their toll.

But in a world where international competition is increasingly intense in the “commodity fibres”, luxury fibres provide a means by which textile and apparel producers can achieve higher added value by selling differentiated products at higher prices.

The report provides comprehensive data on UK and US import and export trade in luxury fibres and luxury fibre products, and highlights investment opportunities and areas where development potential exists.
