How is Ever-rising Demand for Apparel Bolstering Market Growth?
As the global population expands, demand for apparel is inclining significantly, which is paving the way for increased sewing machines adoption. Prolific expansion is anticipated across the Asia Pacific sewing market, with China and India emerging at the forefront.
According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), during FY19, production of fiber in India amounted to 1.4 million tons (MT) and reached 1.6 MT in FY20, while for yarn, production stood at 4.7 billion kilograms in the same time period. The textiles industry has witnessed a spurt in investment since the past five years, broadening prospects for sewing machine sales.
Similarly, China’s textile industry’s investments in fixed assets expanded by 5% in 2018, with investments focused on technology and innovation, resulting in increased productivity. This is providing a bright opportunity for sewing machine manufacturers to increase inroads in the East Asian giant.
How is Emphasis on Stitch Regulator Technologies Generating Opportunities for Sewing Machine Manufacturers?
Patented innovations for mastering free motion stitching are helping manufacturers gain recognition in the sewing machine market. For instance, Bernina International AG is gaining recognition for reinvesting a large share of its cash flow into product development of the Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR).
Free motion stitching eliminates hassles associated with maintaining a consistent stitch length. Free motion techniques help end-users to keep the stitch length even and consistent, as the fabric is guided without the assistance of the feed dogs. Companies in the sewing machine market are increasing their R&D in stitch regulator technologies to help beginners master free motion techniques.

Why are the Technical Anomalies Weighing Down Growth Prospects?
While industrial sewing machines are reputed to streamline the entire apparel and textile manufacturing process by facilitating bulk production, they are not devoid of challenges. Undoubtedly, industrial sewing machines are highly durable and customized. However, certain machines have limited features, including rigid stitch arms, which renders production operations quite inflexible.
Consequently, manufacturers are investing in advanced research & development initiatives to alleviate this problem. A major part of this involves redesigning and restructuring existing models to render them more flexible and easy to use.
How is the U.S. Generating High Demand for Sewing Machines?
The US will likely generate credible expansion opportunities for sewing machines, amid its rising position in the global apparel industry. Total output of the textile industry amounted to nearly US$ 19 billion in 2019, as per the Bureau of Economic Analysis 2020.
Hence, numerous manufacturers have increased their presence in the region. Prominent ones include Ovasco Industries, Numerical Concepts Inc., McCain Bindery Systems and Juki America among others.
Will China Generate Growth Opportunities for Sewing Machine Manufacturers?
China is poised to generate high opportunities as it is the world’s largest producer and exporter of textiles. As of 2013, its exports amounted to US$ 274 billion, accounting for 43.1% of global clothing exports.
In 2018, China’s chemical fiber production exceeded 50 million tons, making up over two thirds of global production. All these trends have generated fertile ground for enhanced industrial sewing machine sales in recent years. Key manufacturers include Hikari (Shanghai) Precise Machinery Science & Technology Co., Shanghai Bioazhun Hailing Sewing Machinery Co. Ltd. and Zhejiang Gemsy Mechanical & Electrical Co. Ltd.
Will Japan Emerge as a Potential Business Hub for Sewing Machines?
Key manufacturers are looking to capitalize on the Japanese market, given its high volume of chemical and synthetic fibers production in recent years. As per the Japan Chemical Fibers Association (JCFA), total synthetic and chemical fibers production amounted to 1.6 million tons as of 2016, with an import penetration ratio for chemical fibers amounting to over 70%.
As the number of regional textile and fibers manufacturers increase, the demand for high-grade sewing machines is experiencing a major incline. JUKI Industrial Sewing Machine is the most prominent market player, offering both apparel and non-apparel sewing machines. Its portfolio for the apparel segment include the 1-needle Lockstitch Machine, 2-needle Lockstitch Machine, Overlock/Safety Stitch Machine and the Zigzag Stitching Machine among others.
