Bangladesh should focus more on value-added, high-end apparel items rather than basic, traditional products in order to increase its market share.
This view was shared among the Bangladeshi apparel manufacturers who participaned at Techtextil & Texporcess, a platform for world's second-largest exporter of clothing.
Bangladeshi manufacturers got the opportunity to find all machine-related issues from design, cutting, sewing, knitting and embroidery to finishing, refining, IT and logistics.
The International exhibitors are presenting the entire spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies at Techtextil in Frankfurt am Main that started on May 14 and will continue till May 17, 2019.
Texprocess, the leading trade fair for the garment manufacturing and textile processing industry, is taking place at the same time as Techtextil.
As of now, the two leading trade fairs recorded 1,830 exhibitors - Texprocess 325 exhibitors from 36 countries and Techtextil 1,501 exhibitors from 57 countries and over 47,000 visitors were recorded on the second day of the fair.
This year, Techtextil and Texprocess are sharing one exhibition hall that is 4.1 for the technical textile where textile machinery will be displayed together for the very first time. Visitors can see the entire chain from production to fibres to innovative fabrics and their end use to recycling.
“Urban Living – City of the Future” is the key theme of Techtextil and Texprocess 2019. In the foyer of Hall 4.2 (which is being shared by Techtextil and Texprocess for the first time) selected examples are showing how textile innovations can already improve the way people live together in urban surroundings.
During four days of Techtextil, the Techtextil Forum, featuring talks, discussions and interactive formats are offering a new framework for the exchange of information between exhibitors and trade visitors and between researchers, developers and users, covering every aspect of technical textiles.
