LUBBOCK - The textile industry's attempts to stay within the 1.5°C pathway of the Paris Agreement could be doomed to failure unless growth can be reduced, according to a new report from the Textile Exchange industry body.

Textile Exchange's latest Preferred Fiber and Materials Market Report reveals that global fibre production reached an all-time high in 2021 after a slight decline due to COVID-19 the previous year.

And although the share of recycled fibre slightly increased from 8.4 per cent in 2020 to 8.9 per cent in 2021 - mainly due to an increase in bottle-based polyester - the market share of fibre recycled from pre- and post-consumer textiles was still less than one per cent.
