Technical textiles are fabrics that have special properties or functions, such as protection, filtration, reinforcement, or insulation. They are widely used in various industries, such as medical, automotive, construction, aerospace, and sports. According to a report by Grand View Research, the global technical textile market size was valued at USD 180.9 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2022 to 2030. North America is one of the major markets for technical textiles, owing to the high demand from end-user industries such as medical, agriculture, and construction.
Taiwan is one of the leading producers and exporters of technical textiles in the world, with a strong focus on innovation and quality. Taiwanese textile firms have been actively promoting their technical textile products in the North American market, by participating in trade shows, exhibitions, and business meetings. This year, under the guideline of Bureau of Foreign Trade, the Taiwan Textile Federation organized Taiwan Pavilion at the Techtextil North America in Atlanta, Georgia, (10-12 May 2023), to display the latest technology in technical textile from Taiwan.
Companies including U-Long, Ge Technology, Asiatic, Honmyue, Yuang Hsian and Light Textile have exceptional products that can be used in medical gown, protective clothing and home textiles.
