Technical textiles are textiles produced primarily for their technical performance and functional properties rather than for aesthetics or decorative functionalities. Thus, function and performance are important characteristics of technical textiles. Properties such as high strength, versatility, and superior technical performance make them desirable in numerous industrial, commercial as well as domestic applications.
Technical textiles find applications ranging from simpler uses in agriculture, clothing, packaging, and furnishing to more complicated applications in automotive, filtration, construction, and environmental protection. The high raw material costs associated with technical textiles is expected to remain a major challenge for market participants. The environmental effects of technical textiles is another major drawback associated with them. However, novel technologies enable the manufacturers to develop textiles, which pose less effects on the environment.
Technical Textiles Market Taxonomy
On the basis of technology used, the market is segmented into:
On the basis of end use, the market is segmented into:
3-D knitting technology is used to produce whole garments with nominal or no cutting. This advanced know-how eliminates post labor work, thus saving manufacturing time along with decreased costs. Thermoforming in textiles is a heat treatment process that is used to transform composites containing fabric layers into various shapes. This technology is widely adopted in the indutech, mobiltech, packtech, and hometech segments. Use of technical textiles in mobiltech segment is noteworthy, as it reduces the weight of vehicles by offering light advanced material that is strong and durable. Various government regulations regarding the use of geosynthetics in infrastructure development projects have led to an increased use of technical textiles. Growing awareness pertaining to environmental protection is expected to augment the growth of the oekotech market segment.
Recent developments include the initiative by the Hohenstein group, which has set up a new center for Textile Public Health in order to develop the meditech textiles as part of its group of companies at Boennigheim in 2017. The major players of the textiles industry are E. I. duPont de Nemours and Co., Asahi Kasei Corporation, Kimberly Clarke Corporation, Hohenstein group, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., and Freudenberg & Co. KG.
