Environmentally sustainable raw materials, environmentally sustainable processing, environmentally sustainable products and a focus on circular supply chains are now top of the agenda in the textile and nonwoven industries. This was apparent at three separate conferences which were held "virtually" in September 2021 and October 2021, namely the 60th Dornbirn Global Fiber Congress (Dornbirn-GFC), the RISE (Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics) conference, and the Conference on Sustainable Finishing of Textiles. At Dornbirn-GFC, it was noted that the European Green Deal--under which the EU aims to become climate-neutral by 2050--had been welcomed by governments, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), campaigners and, if a little less enthusiastically, leaders of the nonwovens and plastics industries as being a big driver in helping to prevent climate change when it was announced in December 2019. One component of the deal will be mandatory separate collections for waste clothing in the EU by 2025 under the Waste Framework Directive. In response to the new demands of this directive, a range of new regenerated fibres is now being developed--notably by companies based in Scandinavia, including Infinited Fiber Company, Renewcell, Sφdra, Spinnova and Stora Enso. At the RISE conference, one of the main topics discussed was that of biopolymers and those which can be used in the manufacture of nonwovens. Also at the conference, there were details of projects aimed at demonstrating the feasibility of the closed-loop recycling of single-use face masks using pyrolysis and the molecular recycling of plastic waste using methanolysis. And at the Conference on Sustainable Finishing of Textiles, "minimum application digital technologies" for dyeing and finishing were showcased by a number of companies, including adphos Group, Alchemie Technology, Baldwin Technology, Coloreel, Dyecoo, Green Theme Technologies and Imogo.

Product Overview   

Four times a year, Technical Textile Markets provides an overview of the global man-made fibre, nonwoven and technical textile industries. It provides market data and analysis of new and established markets for technical textiles, and is essential reading for senior executives in (or supplying) the man-made fibre, nonwoven and technical textile sectors – as well as for those who are not involved in the industry on a day-to-day basis, but who need an authoritative source which helps them to quickly gain an understanding of the key issues facing the companies which are actively involved in this fast-growing sector.
Reports in Technical Textile Markets include:
company and country profiles – giving you the opportunity to learn from strategies employed by others, in terms of production, sourcing, import/export, infrastructure and development, and plans for the future.
profiles of the world's top 40 producers of nonwovens – updated each year with details of developments from each of the leading producers, including acquisitions, investments and divestments, and analyses of trends which the "rising stars" are using to their advantage.
statistical reports – including consumption data, by fibre and end-use applications. Regular updates are published for fibre consumption in Japan, the rest of Asia, the USA, and Western Europe.
market sector information – analyses of important commercial end-user applications, and profiles of both established and emerging markets which take into account such innovations and developments as nanotechnology and intelligent textiles.
regular updates on innovations in fibres, technical textiles, apparel and machinery – including developments in the following categories: fibres and yarns; technical textile fabrics for industrial applications; machinery; technical textiles for apparel; composites; other technical textile products; and technical textile treatments and finishes.
reports on new technological developments and other topical issues – with clear, authoritative comments on their economic and commercial significance. The reports bring to your attention the key issues which you can use to develop your business, and provides contact details of useful organisations.
So whether you are involved in man-made fibres, nonwovens or technical textiles – in manufacturing, converting, import/export, or end use – or if you are in education or consultancy or investment or finance – a subscription to Technical Textile Markets will tell you what you need to know about the key trends in the industry.
Technical Textile Markets is available on subscription – either in printed format only, or in printed and electronic format. If you choose the printed only option, you will receive 4 printed publications a year. Each issue contains five research-based reports (see above) and an editorial.
Electronic supplement
If you choose the printed and electronic option, you will receive an extra service. You will still receive each issue in printed format, delivered to you by traditional post.

In addition, you will be able to download PDF files containing the same information – but the PDF files will be available immediately on publication, so you don’t have to wait for the printing and mailing. You also have all the benefits of electronic files: instant access even when you are away from the office; convenient storage in your PC or laptop; portability; electronic search facility; and copy/paste facility.

You will also receive a monthly update of business news, called "Technical Textiles Business Update" delivered to you by email, free of charge.

Technical textiles are used in a wide range of end-use applications and markets, including agricultural; automotive; building/ construction/ engineering; medical and hygiene; packaging; protective clothing; sports and sportswear; and transport. A subscription to Technical Textile Markets will support your decision making, and provide the information you need to expand into new markets.
