  • A textile is a flexible material comprised of a network of natural or artificial fibers often referred to as thread or yarn. Yarn is produced by spinning raw wool fibers, linen, cotton, or other material on a spinning wheel to produce long strands known as yarn. Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or pressing fibers together.
  • The words fabric and cloth are commonly used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms. Textile refers to any material made of interlacing fibres. Fabric refers to any material made through weaving, knitting, crocheting, or bonding. Cloth refers to a finished piece of fabric that can be used for a purpose such as covering a bed.
  • Textiles have an assortment of uses, the most common of which are for clothing and containers such as bags and baskets. In the household, they are used in carpeting, upholstered furnishings, window shades, towels, covering for tables, beds, and other flat surfaces, and in art. In the workplace, they are used in industrial and scientific processes such as filtering. 
  • Textiles can be made from many materials. These materials come from four main sources: animal, plant, mineral, and synthetic. In the past, all textiles were made from natural fibres, including plant, animal, and mineral sources. In the 20th century, these were supplemented by artificial fibres made from petroleum. Textiles are made in various strengths and degrees of durability, from the finest gossamer to the sturdiest canvas. The relative thickness of fibres in cloth is measured in deniers. Microfiber refers to fibers made of strands thinner than one denier.
  • During 1980-94, the real value of output of the Chinese wool textile industry recorded an average annual growth rate of over 10 per cent. The
    main contributing factor was the rapid increase in domestic demand for wool textile products as a result of strong increases in household incomes, but more recently, with increasing foreign direct investment, exports have become an additional driving force. 
  • In 2004, the number of people aged over 60 amounts to 40% of the entire population. In 1980, only 22% of the Europeans belonged to this group age. Textiles represent an absolutely ideal interface between man and medical treatment facilities, and it would be a loss not to make use of the possibilities they offer. On the basis of DRA’s research, over 1.5mn tons of textile materials, with a value of US$5.4bn, were consumed worldwide in the manufacture of medical and hygiene products in 2000. This is predicted to increase in volume terms by 4.5% per annum to 2010 to reach 2.4mn tons with a value of US$8.2bn.
  • Currently textile market of Russian consumes about 300 – 330 thousand tons of cotton fiber annually. Production of cotton yarn in 2004 amounted to 257 583 t, which is 94,3 % of figures for corresponding period in 2003. In the first quarter of 2005 59 003 tons of cotton yarn have been produced, or 87 % of the first quarter level of 2004. Production of cotton fabric amounted to 2 251 672 thousand m², which is 95,4 % of 2003 level. In the first quarter of 2005 it comes to 526 832 thousand m², which is 90 % of the first quarter level of 2004.
  • India can also grab opportunities in the export market. The industry has the potential of attaining $34bn export earnings by the year 2010. The regulatory polices is helping out to enhance infrastructures of apparel parks, Specialized textile parks, EPZs and EOUs.The Government support has ensured fast consumption of clothing as well as of fibre. A single rate will now be prevalent throughout the country. As a result of various initiatives taken by the government, there has been new investment of Rs.50,000 crore in the textile industry in the last five years. 
  • Nine textile majors invested Rs.2,600 crore and plan to invest another Rs.6,400 crore. Further, India's cotton production increased by 57% over the last five years; and 3 million additional spindles and 30,000 shuttle-less looms were installed. Forecast till 2010 for textiles by the government along with the industry and Export Promotion Councils is to attain double the GDP, and the export is likely attain $85bn. 
  • Today textile sector accounts for nearly 14% of the total industrial output. Indian fabric is in demand with its ethnic, earthly colored and many textures. The textile sector accounts about 30% in the total export. The textile industry is the largest industry in terms of employment economy, expected to generate 12 million new jobs by 2010.
