How is Ever Increasing 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 Asian market, with China and India emerging at the forefront.

According to 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.

How are Advancements in Sewing Technology Aiding Market Growth?

Sewing machines have witnessed revolutionary changes over the years- from manual operation by pedal to automated & computerised sewing machines that saves time and energy. For instance, modern industrial machines can seam over 5000 stitches within a minute. Latest technology can monitor and handle garment processes with enhanced accuracy.

The textile industry is an important recipient of modern sewing technology- including deployment of a single sewing machine capable of producing all sorts of fabrics, thereby offering enormous flexibility. Solutions such as the Kansai Special RX-9803 Series Cylinder Bed Flat Lock Machine for Bottom Hemming and Vetron from Xi’an Typical are experiencing widespread deployment.

More recently, there is renewed interest about ABCs in pattern sewing, moving head sewing and automated workstations, with Juki’s AVP-875A for automatic pocket setter for jeans equipped with an auto-bobbin changer being an example. Proven success of data transfer across sewing machine and use of stand-up module with higher machine to operator ratio has necessitated the justification of ABC to maximize needle running time.
