'Fibre innovation to drive Chinese textile industry'

In China, it would not be a certain type of clothing or a major brand, but fibre innovation that would drive the future development of the textile industry, according to experts.
 
Earlier this month, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and Consumer Goods Industry (MIIT), China Chemical Fiber Industry Association, Donghua University, etc. organized the ‘2014-15 China Fibre Trends’ conference in Beijing.
 
The conference was told that the Chinese textile industry has grown into an important pillar of the national economy, and over the past 20 years, it has gradually established a pivotal position in the global manufacturing industry.
 
However, owing to fierce international competition, the task of transformation and upgrading of China’s manufacturing industry is also increasingly becoming urgent.
 
Based on the foundation of the hard power it already has, the Chinese textile industry needs to focus on soft power by increasing investment in product research and development, strengthening mutual cooperation across the whole industry chain, and bringing the whole industry to create a new model of sustainable development, said Wang Wei, deputy director at MIIT.
 
Fibre is the source of the textile industry chain and fibre as well as end product innovation is necessary to accelerate the upgradation of the overall Chinese textile industry and enhancing the value of the whole industry chain.
 
Experts at Fibre Trends stressed on innovation of ‘green’, ‘recycled’ and ‘low-carbon’ fibres, for sustainable development of the Chinese fibre textile industry.
 
The development of new generation of chemical fibres with ‘high-quality, high-performance, low-power and low emissions’ as its parameters is essential to meet the consumption of 1.3 billion people, enabling them to lead a happy life, they added.
