This book, at present in German language only, describes in a generally understandable way future changes in the textile market with a specific focus on sustainability. The share of cotton in the global fiber market has been declining and limitations in arable land call for a shortage in cotton that may become apparent in the medium term. Thus, alternatives are needed. Manmade fibers, in particular polyester and cellulosic fibers, will benefit the most from this development.
