World Textile Information Network (WTIN) has launched Protective Textiles, a new online channel. The channel will cover both demand and supply side trends and analyse their impact on companies, enabling better and faster business decisions, helping to increase competitiveness, raise profitability and facilitate innovation.
It is the first comprehensive intelligence platform for the protective textiles industry and will be an invaluable resource for product developers and business strategists, helping converters identify new textile technologies and the companies behind them, while offering textile producers unmatched insights into downstream markets and trends. World Textile Information Network is a textiles knowledge provider. Protective Textiles will offer fully researched intelligence into the markets and technology of textiles designed to protect against a range of hazards, including heat, cold, chemicals, physical injury and biological organisms. It will provide access to all the sector’s information needs on one platform, including technological developments, market trends, and customer and competitor analysis.
With rising concerns about worker safety, including protection from fire, chemical agents, and disabling and life-threatening injuries, demand for high-performance protective fabrics is rising. The global protective textiles market is expected to grow up to four per cent annually over the next few years, creating many commercial opportunities.
