Top 10 Textile and Apparel Tech Solution Companies - 2020

Before the dawn of the 21st century prevailed a time when online shopping was unknown. Back then, pre-Y2K shoppers braved the overfull malls’ parking lots and adjusted in fluorescent-lit changing rooms in brick-and-mortar stores, or even waited for weeks to get their catalog orders delivered. However, the sudden surge in the dot-com shopping ushered in a new era of shopping called e-commerce. Powered by advanced strategies and technologies to target the desired audience, the burgeoning e-commerce industry is expected to generate revenue of in hundreds of billions worldwide.

Textile manufacturers include just-in-time technology like augmented reality (AR) to display the garments on their website or mobile applications, and in turn, enhance their customer experience. This allows customers to choose from the multiple prints, colors, embroideries, and others without the garment being manufactured in real. This saves manufacturers costs–production cost, labor charges, material costs–and even saves time for both the customer and brands. Furthermore, equipped with next-gen technologies, companies are revamping their mills and buildings, and hiring specialized staff who can work with innovations like 3D printed cloths, smart fabrics with small chips as conductors or energy converters, and more.

Besides, textile managers are focusing more on non-woven fabrics and investing in new machinery. Given the added advantage that non-woven fabrics are hygienic, they make a perfect choice for healthcare workers, as these fabrics also require less time to be manufactured, are cost-effective, and demand less labor. Also, addressing the call for a sustainable environment, today’s textile manufacturers are finding alternatives to focus more on green textiles that include making garments from algae, used coffee ground, and spoiled milk.

With innovation at its core, the textile and apparel sector is standing at the cusp of drastic transformations. In order to assist the textile and apparel companies in shoring up their capabilities with robust textile management devices and smart procedures, we have compiled this issue of Manufacturing Technology Insights.
