Medical Textile Segment is predicted to witness lucrative growth during the Forecast Period

Medical textile is an unavoidable segment of the healthcare industry. Continuous innovation in the field of medical textiles has significantly driven the knitting machines market in the medical sector. Non-woven textiles presently dominate the total medical textile industry with around 60% consumption share. However, knitted fabrics are the basic structure to develop high-tech medical textiles such as medical patches, artificial blood vessels, and scaffolds for tissue engineering. In the wake of same, knitted medical textiles is expected to grapple closely with the non-woven textiles and project fastest growth of the segment in years to come. Furthermore, increasing demand for high-tech textiles in healthcare segment has also provided lucrative opportunities to the knitting machine manufacturers. Increasing awareness regarding unique benefits and its versatile applications are the other important factors that have prominently triggered the market growth.

Asia Pacific is projected to garner the Highest Growth during Forecast Period

Asia Pacific is the most lucrative region for the global knitting machines market and show glimpses of being one of the dominating regions during the forecast period. The robust growth of the region is primarily driven by the steep growth of automobile, clothing, and healthcare sectors in the region. Prominent growth in the above mentioned sectors have magnificently increased the demand of knitted fabrics in the Asian countries. Additionally, the Asian knitters are also focusing towards their regional expansion. For instance, in July 2019, a Hong Kong manufacturer, Wai Chi Kai Knitting Company invested US$ 1 Bn in its new manufacturing site in Vietnam.

Day by day knitted products are gaining pace in the South Asian countries. In 2018, Bangladesh claimed 40% of its total export earnings are from knitted products. On the contrary, increasing yarn prices coupled with increased production cost is expected to hinder the knitted products market growth in some of the south Asian countries.
