Big challenge to maintain leadership in dyeing & printing sector
Jun '09
In recent years, China's printing and dyeing production has achieved an average annual growth rate of 20 percent, becoming the world's largest producer of dyes, accounting for about 60 percent of world printing and dyeing production. The largest user of dyes is the textile industry, accounting for 90 percent of total consumption.

However, currently China's printing and dyeing industry is running badly short of innovative talents. Development of energy-saving and emission reduction is the key for China's printing and dyeing enterprises to survive in future, but the industry needs talents to achieve a breakthrough in energy-saving and emission reduction.

Many printing and dyeing enterprises are weak on technology and have relatively few scientific and technological personnel, and seriously lack innovative ability. In fields of mechanical maintenance, printing machine operation and sewage treatment, China also lacks skilled workers.

Printing and dyeing industry also lacks graphic designers. Over the past few years, designers mainly worked for domestic market, but now they need to upgrade themselves to meet the competitive needs of the export market, which requires a completely higher level of designs and patterns.
