More About This Book

Overview

The current size of the personal protective clothing and equipment market in the EU alone is estimated at € 9.5-10 billion, with around 200,000 jobs directly or indirectly related to these products and services. The fast growth forecasted in certain parts of the world suggests that EU exports could grow by about 50% over the next 5-10 years.

New fibres and new functionality will increase the global size of this niche market. Among the issues of specific concern for protective textiles are swifter development and use of international standards in the global market, which combined with appropriate measures for the protection of intellectual property would accelerate the increase in demand for protective textiles.

The volume contains authoritative chapters addressing issues ranging from anti-microbial textiles through to textiles for aircraft ejector seats.

The protective textiles lead market offers opportunities for the entire textile sector. Spill-over effects from faster growing innovations in protective textiles to other market segments, such as interior textiles or functional clothing, would considerably increase the economic impact of the lead market, thus increasing the knowledge content and the added-value, contributing to a sustainable competitiveness of the entire textile sector.

Global textile fibre usage in 2011 grew to 82 million tonnes and is estimated to grow to 101 million tonnes in 2017. There were record purchases of textile manufacturing machinery in 2012 - with increased use and processing of natural and synthetic polymer fibres.

This book will prompt new ideas for product development in this rapidly expanding area and will be of interest to academics, students and industrialists.
