Taiwanese textile firms meet demand through continuous R&D

Jan '13
In the midst of global economic downturn, some Taiwanese textile companies have performed well by continuous R&D of new products.
 
“Although Taiwan’s textile industry was under the influence of global economic downturn, especially the European debt crisis, in 2012, some companies demonstrated good performances by continuous R&D of new products to satisfy the demands of consumers,” Chieh Min, vice researcher of Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI) ITIS project, told fibre2fashion.
 
ECLAT Textile, one of the leading Taiwanese manufacturers of knitted fabrics, successfully developed functional fabrics, Eclon and Body Care, for the American and European markets through R&D. This helped the company perform well despite the global economy slowdown in 2012, according to Min.
 
Another company that performed well was Acelon, one of the top producers of polyester and nylon fibre in Taiwan. Acelon built a new factory to supply Lyocell fiber particle, Lyocell environmentally friendly long fibre, and Lyocell environmentally friendly non-woven fabric made of wood pulp fibre under artex process. These fibers are green material that is decomposable and unlike traditional manufacturing process of rayon fibre, it does not pollute the environment owing to the decomposable characteristic and environmentally friendly manufacturing process.  
   
“Along with globalization and fierce competition from newly emerging markets, Taiwan’s textile industry has become more internationalized today than ever before,” avers Min.
 
For ensuring future growth of Taiwanese textiles, Min suggests, “In addition to the pursue of reliable production quality, technology R&D and product innovation, more efforts should be put in towards building Taiwan’s own brands, engaging in energy saving production, and to develop environmentally friendly products.”
 
“By doing so, Taiwan’s textile industry would be able to extend the added values of its industrial chain, reduce energy consumption cost, and develop niche markets for problem solving and better positioning,” Min concludes.
