Automotive and Industrial Textiles

Asia is now the world's fastest growing region for automobile, where textiles are widely applied on automobile production such as seat cover, carpets, roof, heat/sound absorption materials, etc. As British Textile Intelligence predicts, the total volume of textiles per vehicle is expected to reach 35 kg in 2020. Therefore, huge market potential should be highlighted in the automobile industry.

Creative Knitting in Lifestyle

Knitting technology is always evolving in accordance to our ever-changing lifestyle. Thus it penetrates our lives with evolving appearance, function and application. ShanghaiTex 2017 will explore the cutting-edge knitting technology and application from views of different lifestyles, stimulating innovation and inspiration among textile manufacturers.

People are now tending to pursue fitness and healthy lifestyles, which leads to the emerging technology of functional fiber processing with better elasticity, air permeability, and softness properties. These new technologies can not only enhance sports performance, but also combine function with fashion for more aesthetic perception. Furthermore, the revolutionary integration of electronics and textiles has made Smart Textiles a market heat. It is able to respond to changing environments, communicate, detect and bear other interactive features. ShanghaiTex 2017 will uncover the wisdom by bringing conductive fabrics and soft batteries under the spotlight for sportswear, sport shoes, fashion and wearable electronics enterprises.

Green Printing, Dyeing and Finishing
