Analyst Review

Textile modification is executed to obtain durable antimicrobial textiles such as application of fluorocarbon on non-woven fabrics leads to evolution of anti-microbial textiles. As environment is getting polluted, it is very important to remain safe and healthy; therefore, protection from infections is the major future agenda with discovery of anti-microbial textiles. Stain resistant technology removes stains and dirt easily from textiles. This fabric gains fame and can be currently used by both men and women on the daily basis. The main motive of developing luxurious textiles is to bring soft touch to furnishings, accessories, and fashion.

The major restraining factor for the growth of textile chemicals market is harmful effects of chemicals on human and environment. Textile industry is second largest industry globally and has incorporated about 3500 chemicals of which 10% - 15% are discharged into environment, mainly during dyeing process. The effluents released from textiles industries severely affect the quality of water bodies as they undergo chemical transformations in the environment. Various techniques are employed for remediation of waste waters but either they are expensive or ineffective.
