Growth Drivers

Phenomenal Growth Post-pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic that commenced at the beginning of 2020, has impacted the textile sector's whole supply chain, including textile machinery market. All industry participants, including textile machinery producers, have encountered numerous challenges as a result. Although the circumstances resulted in issues such as a shortage of raw materials, price rises, and supply chain interruptions, the unmet demand during this period led to an increase and recovery in orders in 2021. The pandemic's significant and profound changes in daily life have also brought sustainability, circular production, and digitalization to the forefront of manufacturers' investments and business decisions.

The Rise of Smart Textiles, and Textile Recycling

The growing fast-fashion trend is boosting the demand for textile machinery to create modern clothing with cutting-edge fabrics, patterns, styles, colors, and designs. Additionally, this can be attributed to rapid urbanization, rising disposable incomes, expanding social media influence, and the growing adoption of high-end clothing. In addition, the growing need for textile recycling brought on by growing environmental concerns and the growing awareness of the negative effects of garbage incineration is fostering the expansion of textile machinery market.

Additionally, the textile machinery market is expected to grow as smart textiles embedded with electronic components, conductive threads, and advanced technologies are used in various end-use sectors. Other than that, major manufacturers are introducing medical and biomedical textile machines that offer flexible and adaptable assistance to fulfill customer requirements. The expanding use of medical textiles for first aid, clinical, surgical, and hygienic purposes and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases are expected to fuel market expansion.

COVID-19 Impact

Due to the limitations on manufacturing, this market is anticipated to suffer during the COVID-19 pandemic. The alarming increase in COVID-19 patients prompted the implementation of strict lockdown standards. This reason caused supply chain interruptions. Transport limitations also caused a need for more raw materials. Firms use automated production methods, shortened shifts, and lower capacity to balance their expenses. During the epidemic, this aspect can boost the market. Furthermore, According to projections, the textile machinery market will be significantly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The suspension of various manufacturing activities worldwide and the numerous lockdowns and travel restrictions are largely to blame for the lack of raw materials. Due to this, market growth over the anticipated timeframe has been significantly impacted. Due to the closure, the manufacturing of textile machines and the delivery of associated services were constrained to acceptable levels, which resulted in a decline in market size and market share for the textile machinery industry.

Online and retail enterprises were temporarily shut down. These issues, which have significantly harmed the global economy, have had a detrimental impact on the industrial automation and equipment industry. The prohibition on producing textile machines led to a considerable mismatch in supply and demand. The COVID-19 epidemic has impacted the supply chains of various textile machinery manufacturers. Additionally, many companies experienced cash flow problems, which could force them to halt all production. In light of this, COVID-19 is expected to substantially impact the textile machinery market.

Growth in Order Intake Across Italy

Along with Germany, Japan, China, and Switzerland, Italy retain significant positions as the major exporters of textile machines worldwide. Around 11% of global textile machinery exports are made in Italy. Italy is a world leader in the production of textile machinery, claims the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT), thanks to its innovative spirit, environmentally friendly technology, dependability, and high-quality products. Production of textile machines and related components is carried out by over 300 enterprises, with a combined workforce of 12,000 people.

According to the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT), the index of orders received for Italian textile machinery for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased by 43% from the fourth quarter of 2020. The index was worth 127.9 points in absolute terms. Both the Italian and international markets helped to fuel this rise. For the Italian textile machinery market, 2022 was thus a year marked by optimism, and pessimism. The biggest textile machine exposition in the world, pending ITMA 2023, will take place in Milan in June 2023.

Soaring Nonwoven Fabric Consumption

Textile machinery creates and processes textiles, clothing, and other materials. The demand for textile machinery is anticipated to increase as non-woven fabric demand rises. Additionally, increasing expenditures on cotton ginning equipment may accelerate its uptake. Furthermore, it is anticipated that the machine will be adopted more widely due to the fashion industry's rapid development. It is anticipated that adoption will increase as per capita income and development increase. The expansion of the textile machinery market is also anticipated to be fueled by rising knowledge of the adaptability of the equipment.

Growth Challenges

High Maintenance Costs, and Evolving Government Regulations

The biggest obstacles to adopting automated machines are the operating costs for the textile manufacturing industries. Some of these costs could include the price of automating a process's research and development, preventative maintenance, and paying employees to operate automated machines. The textile industry faces major difficulties due to shifting government policies and a lack of systematic financial assistance at the state and federal levels. To compete in the global textile machinery market, the textile industry needs help from the Central and State governments. The tax structure goods and service tax (GST), tariff barriers, and other factors make clothing expensive to trade globally.

Overview of Key Segments
