are natural fibers made of ether or esters of cellulose. The primary sources of cellulose fiber are wood, barks and leaves of plants. In this report, cellulose fibers are segmented on the bases of types and end user industry. In terms of types, cellulose fibers are mainly classified as natural and synthetic. Due to the widely different types of cellulose fibers available, both in nature as well as in industries, these are further subdivided. Natural fibers broadly consist of cotton, jute and wool. Synthetic fibers comprise acetate, acrylic, aramid, rayon, nylon, olefin and polyester. Cellulose fibers are used in numerous end user industries, the most prominent ones being textiles, paper and pulp, aerospace and defense, automotive, construction, electrical/insulation and fireproofing. The forecast period for this report is taken to be from 2016 to 2021.
