  • Technical approach:

    Market approach:

    Technical textiles are textiles which fulfill technical requirements inorder to perform better (e.g. in order to meet technical standards).The performance attributes of a technical textile outweigh anyaesthetic requirements.

    Technical textiles offer solutions for the multi-faceted technicaldemands of our society (e.g. environmental issues, personal security,general security, health and well being).

    * source: Euratex 'Working group for technical textiles'

    The success of technical textiles is in most part due to the creativity,innovation and versatility in woven, knitted and non woven fabrics,with applications spanning an enormous range of end uses includingprotective clothing, medical and insulation materials for buildings.

    The technical textiles sector is one of the most innovative branches ofindustry in the world, ranking as one of the five high-tech sectors withthe greatest potential for development. The global market fortechnical textiles today is worth an estimated 97 billion Euros, whereAsia leads the world in terms of textile comsumption with 8.5 milliontons followed by the USA and Europe with 5.8 and 4.8 million tonsrespectively.
