Textiles, Nonwovens and Paper
Globalization and digitization of today’s day and age are leading to a fundamental change in the global market for textiles, nonwovens and paper. Through specializing in technical textiles and nonwovens, European suppliers to the clothing and footwear industries are able to compensate for the extensive offshoring of production.However, in the new, multifaceted user industries – ranging from filtration, via energy-related industries to construction –suppliers must offer the right quality, logistics and pricing policy to survive.Positioning through product innovation is also becoming more of a key factor for long-term company success. This especially concerns the hygiene and medical nonwovens segments as well as tissues and specially coated papers in the paper industry.
