DescriptionThis report presents a worldwide overview of the dissolving pulp industry and highlights of this industry in Alaska. It describes trends in world markets and major end-use markets, with special emphasis on the manufacture and use of textile fibers in the United States. Figures and tables present data on production, consumption, and trade of dissolving pulp and the cellulosic fibers-rayon and acetate-produced from it. Data are also given on the production and use of competing natural and synthetic fibers, such as cotton, silk, nylon, and polyester.
