New Technologies and Techniques for Garment Decoration. Manufacturers are using a wide range of creative and ingenious decorative techniques to add value to their fabrics. The development of these new decorative techniques has been facilitated partly by recent innovations in garment decoration technology. As a result, the range of economical design options for designers and manufacturers has been widened. These innovations have centred around machinery for: direct to garment digital printing; sublistatic printing; embroidery; conventional sewing; embellishment attachment; heat transfer; and laser decoration. Additionally, interesting advancements in electronic textiles have taken garment decoration beyond the field of aesthetics by enhancing the functionality of garments for their wearers. This report discusses recent developments in garment decoration techniques and includes detailed descriptions of new technologies and machinery.

World Markets for Textile Machinery: Part 1—Yarn Manufacture, September 2012 edition. 2011 was a good year for the textile yarn machinery market. Double digit growth was recorded in deliveries of short staple spindles, long staple spindles, open-end rotors and double heater false-twist draw texturing machinery. However, deliveries of single heater false-twist draw texturing machinery plunged. There were sharp increases in deliveries to the textile industries in several individual countries. Turkey was the biggest market for long staple spindles for the second year in succession, and there was a significant increase in shipments of short staple spindles, open-end rotors and double heater false-twist spindles to textile mills in China. Furthermore, substantial increases were recorded in deliveries of these three types of machinery to the industries in Indonesia and Uzbekistan. This report examines general trends and provides analyses of international textile yarn machinery markets. It also includes a statistical appendix which provides data on installed capacities and shipments of spinning machines -- by type, region and selected country.

Prospects for the Textile and Clothing Industry in Malaysia. Malaysia's economy has been broadened and modernised and the relative significance of the textile and clothing industry has diminished over the years. Nonetheless, the industry is forecast to continue fulfilling an important role in the country's overall economic development. Indeed, investment in the Malaysian textile and clothing industry is expected to reach US$3 bn during 2011-20 and the Malaysian government has set a target for textile and clothing exports to almost double over the period. This prediction is based on ambitious government plans for further development of the industry which involve a focus on high-tech and high added value products. This report looks at the development of the textile and clothing industry in Malaysia, its size and structure, as well as production and consumption. The report also features: a geographical, political and economic profile; a detailed look at the country's imports and exports; a review of government policies, investment incentives and foreign investments; an analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT); and a look at Malaysia's infrastructure and human resources and how these affect the textile and clothing industry.
