The article reports on the market performance of the Chinese and Japanese textile industries in 2003. China's 2003 man-made fiber (MMF) production reached 11.61 million tons, making up more than 30% of the world's total, and exceeded the total production in the U.S., Europe and Japan altogether. China's production is expected to continue growing at sharp rates and is slated to reach 16 million tons by 2010. Among the newly increased 4 million tons of MMF in the coming years, the proportion of polyester, acrylic, nylon, polypropylene fiber and urethane elastic fibers must be well readjusted in accordance with the actual needs of the market. According to the Japan spinners' Association, cotton fabric imports into Japan in 2003 amounted to 564.88 million square meters, up 2.7% from the previous year. Imports from China fell in 2002, but rallied to 430 million square meters last year. As a result, China accounted for 76% of the total imports of cotton fabrics. Import from Indonesia, which was the second largest supplier, increased by 4% to 57.43 million square meters, while those from Korea fell by 43%. By item, twill imports increased by 28%, despite a fall for poplin and cambric. Imports of polyester/cotton blended fabrics amounted to 127.03 million square meters, up 13% from the previous year.
