China must improve standards of chemical fibre industry

Chemical fibre raw materials were once promoted as an alternative to cotton, and they were expensive than cotton. However, owing to the current high price, cotton is gradually being replaced by chemical fibre in the Chinese textile industry, according to the China Chemical Fibre Industry Association.
 
China’s chemical fibre production capacity has currently grown to become the largest in the world. But, owing to the fierce international competition, the task of transformation and upgrading of China’s textile manufacturing industry is becoming increasingly urgent.
 
China already has an advantage of having complete textile industrial value chain, and the need is to focus on construction of soft power, increase investment in product research and development, and to strengthen the mutual cooperation of the whole industry chain. It is crucial for the Chinese textile industry to create a new model of sustainable development by proper use of information technology.
 
In fact, the restructuring and upgrading of the whole industry chain of chemical fibre textile industry has an important role in the manufacture of high-quality textiles in China, according to an expert.
 
The current difference in domestic and international cotton prices is too large, resulting in a decline in the demand for local cotton, while the demand for synthetic fibre has been growing. It is estimated that China’s chemical fibre exports accounted for 45 percent of total global trade.
 
Of the various types of chemical fibre products, China has capacity to produce 95 percent of products.
 
Owing to the growth of the chemical fibre industry in the past two years, many companies have introduced innovative products focusing on green concept.
 
Meanwhile, the Chinese Government is also guiding innovation and green carbon fibre consumption concept. In order to regulate the quality of chemical fibre products, implementation of international standards by the domestic industry is necessary.
