Fast track: trends and developments in performance fibres, textiles, clothing and treatments at TITAS 2019
published in Issue 67, January 2020
The Taiwanese textile industry is well known for its innovative approach to the development of new performance fibres, textiles and clothing, and, every year, the industry's latest developments are presented at the Taipei Innovative Textile Application Show (TITAS). Textiles Intelligence visited the 2019 edition of TITAS (TITAS 2019)-which was held in Taipei, Taiwan, during October 7-9, 2019-and interviewed exhibitors and industry experts first-hand to identify the latest trends. There was a strong focus at the fair on the themes of functional applications, intelligent manufacturing, smart textiles and sustainability, and several exhibitors promoted innovations in these areas. Another hotly discussed topic at the fair was that of the forthcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, which has caused demand for technical performance fabrics and sportswear to spike. This report discusses the latest industry trends which were presented at TITAS 2019, and highlights the latest developments from a number of the industry's key players, including Archroma, Asiatic Fiber Corporation (AFC), Browzwear, Cocona, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Fuze Biotech and Intrinsic Advanced Materials.
