Innovation in technology could strongly drive the textile and garment industry in China, according to an expert.
 
Speaking at a discussion on ‘new way of thinking for transition in textile and garment industry, Xu Ying, vice president of China Textile Industry Association, said China’s cotton, cotton yarn, cotton fabric, printing and dyeing, wool, including knitting and dyeing, and garment production capacity is the largest in the world.
 
But, the Chinese textile and garment industry still lacks in terms of consumer brands, which would require the industry to consider how to achieve the scale of change from growth in the quality to efficiency of growth, he added.
 
By transformation and upgrading, it does not mean the rapid growth of production capacity, but paying attention to the brand and benefits.
 
Xu Ying pointed out that in order to achieve the transformation and upgrading, Chinese textile industry must grasp the scientific and technological innovation, and basic elements of personnel training, energy conservation, and sustainable development.
 
Among them, the scientific and technological innovation applied to industrial transformation and upgrading should look at five aspects. First is the elimination of backward production capacity through technological means to improve the level of machinery and equipment. Second is optimization of existing stock of assets through technological advances. Third, improving the transformation and upgrading of the level of energy saving through scientific techniques. Fourth, continue to improve the quality of products. And lastly, strengthen brand building.
 
Xu Ying also informed that some of the wool scouring and dyeing businesses in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Guangdong and other areas have shutdown or relocated after the implementation of new emissions standards. He said this throws a huge challenge as the textile industry chain would be broken if there are no dyeing and printing companies.
 
The current technology allows companies to fully meet the new national emission standards, but it would require some investment, which would raise the cost of textile products. Hence, he suggested that local governments should give some subsidies to textile enterprises in this regard. Secondly, he urged the enterprises to focus more on improving product quality and added value to offset the increased cost of meeting emission standards.
