2015 Top Markets Report – Technical Textiles and Apparel
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce: "The technical textile industry is as broad and diverse as the products it generates, with new and innovative applications being developed on a daily basis. The technical textile industry is also increasing proportionally relative to whole textile industry. Therefore, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) has committed to develop a tool for prioritizing U.S. Government export promotion efforts to help target resources towards technical textile markets and sectors most likely to result in U.S. exports. This study examines the U.S. technical textile industry and highlights key markets that will see increased exports by U.S. technical textile producers. This study examines both past performance of exports in this sector and projects estimates for growth through 2016."
