Chinese textile industry begins changing development model
May '14
The textile industry in China, which has been plagued by overcapacity, high cost of raw materials and production, and other problems, has begun changing its development model.
In order to digest the high inventory and meet the individual needs of consumers, the Chinese textile industry has began to develop a small shift towards embracing low carbon emitting technologies.
As quality of life is improving, people are demanding not only quality and style, but also fabrics and apparel that are comfortable and environment-friendly.  Hence, more and more manufacturers are beginning to produce ‘green’ fabric or eco-friendly fabric.
‘Green Textiles’ generally have deodorant, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-UV, anti-radiation, humidifiers and other features. Although production of such products is still in infancy in China, consumers are welcoming these products as they are beneficial to human health.
In addition, some domestic fabric suppliers have started accelerating the transformation and upgrading their design patterns, adopting modern textile patterns instead of the earlier traditional textile patterns. For this, they are using a variety of new technologies, including ERP systems for product design, development, production, and marketing process integration. This shift is helping manufacturers to produce more varieties in smaller volumes.
The shift in the Chinese textile industry is in sync with the Textile Industry’s twelfth five-year development plan which stresses on the application and use of new materials and technology, and product innovation to lead to production of green, low-carbon, stylish products.
China is the world’s largest producer and exporter of textiles, from raw materials to finished product, and it has a complete industrial chain. However, in recent years, the sustainable development of China’s high-end clothing industry had been seriously hampered due to lack of innovation, etc.
