Interfiber Competition with Emphasis on Cotton: Trends and Projections to 1980

During the past two decades, the natural fibers (cotton and wool) have faced intense competition from artificial fibers (cellulosics and noncellulosics). This study analyzes interfiber competition during the past two decades in terms of (1) retail demand for six end products-men's apparel, women's apparel, household furnishings, rugs and carpets, tires and tire fabrics, .and miscellaneous products; (2) net trade in manufactured and semimanufactured textile products; and (3) mill demand for the fibers by end use. Conditional projections to 1980 of per capita mill consumption of the fibers and their market shares are given.
