The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global technical textiles market for 2016-2020. The report provides the revenue figures for the categories of technical textiles and provides the consumption volume in APAC, the Americas, and EMEA during 2016-2020.

The technical textile industry is foreseen to account for over 45% of the total textiles produced in certain industrialized countries. Textile manufacturers in industrialized countries are manufacturing technical textiles due to growing rivalry and decreasing profit margins. These textiles offer higher profit margins as their use is directed by need.

The use of technical textiles in the healthcare industry as biophysical monitoring systems, patient tracking devices, and medical supplies is expected to foster the demand for these textiles. Europe is the largest consumer of technical textiles, followed by North America.

Technavio chemicals and materials analysts highlight the following four factors that are contributing to the growth of the global technical textiles market:

  • Growing demand for geotextiles
  • Technical textiles in electronics
  • Increase in demand for nonwoven technical textiles
  • Government initiatives

Growing demand for geotextiles

Ajay Adikhari, a lead textiles, fiber, and composites analyst at Technavio, says, “The global geotextile market is expected to reach around USD 8.7 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of almost 11% during 2016-2020. Geotextiles are robust technical textiles characterized by puncture resistance, larger elongation before breaking, filter characteristics during strains, and high ultraviolet protection. Geotextiles possess a wide range of mechanical and physical properties, and their properties can be altered by using different polymers.”

Technical textiles in electronics

Electronic textiles are fabrics embedded with digital components. These textiles offer physical elasticity and characteristic size that cannot be achieved with other prevailing electronic manufacturing techniques. Microelectronic components can also be incorporated into the fabric; they are less visible and vulnerable to tangling from adjacent objects.

“The novel materials are opening potential applications in commercial products, especially communication, healthcare, protection, and wearable technology applications. These textiles are used for performance purposes, which include the monitoring of vital signs, sports training data acquisition, insulation against extreme radiations, communication, and regaining lost sensory perception,” adds Ajay.

Increase in demand for nonwoven technical textiles

Nonwoven technical textiles are used for manufacturing hygiene products such as diapers, sanitary napkins, bandages, and wipes. These technical textiles are replacing woven technical textiles in many applications, including geotextile, medical, filter, and packaging applications. Some of the noteworthy factors that have been increasing the demand for nonwoven technical textiles are:

  • Alterations in consumer demand and changing lifestyle products
  • Growth of organized retail market
  • Huge raw material base

Government initiatives

The governments of various countries have set up agencies and research centers for the development of technical textiles. In addition to providing financial support, favorable policies also assure incentives to vendors in the market. For example, the governments of India and China have concentrated the customs duty on polyester chips, polyester staple fiber, tow, and polyester filament yarns from 10% to 5%.

In India, there is a strong focus on the further development of the technical textiles industry as the government making is significant efforts to support small- and medium- sized enterprises and encourage exports. Furthermore, in the EU, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has identified technical textiles as a promising and steady growth field for textile vendors and are focusing on the enhancement of skills and the training of the workforce.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
