Adhesive filament industry requires tech upgradation
Mar '08
Starting from November 2007, the sale of Chinese adhesive filament has sharply dropped leaving behind a handful of stitch-yarn manufacturers as the only consumers.

Initially, adhesive filament was used as a substitute to cotton yarns and it therefore occupied a considerable market share.

However, with the advent of polyester filament as a replacement to adhesive filament, there is really a doubt if it can still linger for long in the consumer market.

This declining trend in adhesive filament consumption can be explained on grounds that manufacturers have not taken any measures to bring about a technological development in its production capacity. For years now, manufacturers have focused only on enlarging the quantitative output of the filament disregarding its functional aspect and performance level.

It was therefore not surprising to see the industry getting affected by this downfall. To counteract the effect, Government has decided to implement 12 new textile standards including those for stitch yarns of adhesive filament and the cotton stitch yarns.
