Oerlikon Neumag Announces Carpet Yarn Line Sales

Oerlikon Neumag, Germany -- the nonwoven, bulk-continuous-filament (BCF) carpet yarn and man-made staple fiber machinery business unit of Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG -- reports that since the start of 2010, it has completed more than 20 BCF carpet yarn line orders by major carpet manufacturers in the United States, Brazil, Turkey, China and Russia. Polyester yarns account for more than half the 100,000-plus tons of production capacity.

According to Oerlikon Neumag, polyester demand has grown because the yarns are more cost-efficient to produce than other yarns, among other reasons; and it is expected that the growth rate for polyester will outpace the rate for other carpet fibers.
