Based on its extensive knowledge of textile end-use products and markets, DRA has created a system for describing and forecasting world textile end-use (citizen) consumption by final product and calculating the implied volumes of different types of fibre, yarn, fabric and levels of finish.

DRA’s "Textile End-Use Consumption Forecasting System" analyses current consumption of 300 separate end-use products by region in terms of 20 fibre, 8 yarn, 20 fabric and 6 finish types.

Forecasts and scenarios are produced by calculating the consequences of "what if" questions relating to relative fibre prices, technical advances, economic variables, lifestyle changes, fashion trends etc.

THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN USED TO ANALYSE LIKELY FUTURE COMPETITION AMONG:

It has also been used to identify potential opportunities for increasing the consumption of established, mature fibres (e.g. nylon, viscose) by technical and commercial innovation.
