Functional textiles & apparels

Abstract:
Among the diverse field of application of Technical Textiles, which is poised for tremendous growth in fast developing economies like that of India and China, non implantable healthcare and hygiene products are gaining significant importance because of specificity of their end uses. Protective textiles offer protection from hazardous chemicals, heat, extreme cold, radiation and have special application potential in today's technologically advanced world. In addition to this, advent of nanotechnology has opened innumerable avenues giving rise to high performance textiles and apparels. This paper discusses overall status of this field and its scope for growth in near future.


The demography of India has been totally shifted towards young population and the purchasing potential of this young population has been increasing. For this reason most of the developing countries are looking at India as a global market. India and China constitute over 40% population of the globe and application of technical textiles in this region will increase with a very high rate. The developed countries are much ahead of India with respect to manufacture and consumption of Technical Textile. They are now finding a great potential to exploit the Asian market and hence, as per the industrial analysis, the field of technical textiles is considered to be quite promising for the growth. Hence, those involved in textile business dealing with apparels and also thinking of diversification or adding new line to their business should look at this segment of Technical Textile with a great promise.
