Technical Textiles Expect Continued Growth

At Jason Mills we’re always excited to come across positive industry news and share it with our readers. Recently, we read in Textile World that technical textiles continue to see growth. Technical textiles, like the ones we manufacture, can be used across a variety of industries, including automotive, medical, personal safety, and sanitation supply; using finishes such as anti microbial, fire resistance and ultra violet resistance. With such a range of applications it’s no surprise to us that this sector of the textile industry is one of the main areas of growth for the western hemisphere.

According to research from the Gherzi Textile Organisation 25% of fibers were used in technical textiles in the 1990s and today that number is over 55% and the use of textiles in industrial applications is only expected to go up. The research also found that from 1990-2012 fiber processing moved more towards technical textiles with the number of man-made fibers increasing from 68% to 91%.
