New system concepts for spinning filament yarns
Two spinning concepts for the economic production of high quality bico filament yarns promise tailormade solutions for all applications, explain Günter Schütt and Susanne Beyer from Oerlikon. Although bicomponent yarns have been around for about 50 years now and they are not a new phenomenon, we have seen a constant increase in demand over the past few years (with frequent fashion-related peaks in 2015, for example). Reasons for this development are manifold. In addition to current fashion trends, new, highly-efficient solutions for manufacturing textile fabrics such as circular knitting, for instance, reduce production costs.

Nonwovens Miles to go!
There is a huge untapped potential in nonwovens for the Indian industry. High cost, lack of entrepreurship and dearth of research are proving to be major hurdles on the path of growth for this emerging segment in technical textiles. Karthik Muthuveeran analyses and bares some details. China is the leader today and will remain as top producing country in Asia, taking the lion’s share. India’s nonwoven production is growing at 13 per cent CAGR on volume basis as compared with China’s 12 per cent CAGR.
Nonwovens in India: Problems & Prospects!
There is a paradigm shift in thinking of Indian entrepreneurs in last five years. They are more adaptive to new things and new technologies today. But, unfortunately our Textile Industry players have not realized the latest trends. They still continue to manufacture same age-old conventional textiles. They are hardly taking any efforts for innovations. Though Technical Textile is growing at CAGR of 20 per cent in India having huge growth potential, there is no much investment in this sector and the main reason is lack of awareness about the markets.
