This article reports that U.S. demand for textile chemicals is forecast to increase nearly three percent per year to 2.6 billion dollars in 2006, essentially on par with projected growth for textile mill fiber consumption. This represents a marked improvement from the previous five-year period when there was a substantial increase in finished textile products imported from Asia, which depressed chemical usage in the U.S. Value-added finishing chemicals are expected to be among the fastest growing product categories. Polymers will remain the largest product type through 2006. Polymers are expected to register abopver average gains, supported by their extensive use in nonwovens, which are expected to post healthy gains over the next several years.
