Slide 4: 

INTRODUCTION The global textile industry is increasingly facing competition from low-wage countries Innovations in the production, composition and application of new textiles will be able to create stability in this sector New technologies in textile production and processing are driving innovation in high-tech textile products New processes will lead to new products and hence to an expansion of the traditional textile industries, both in terms of supply and production Increasing globalization, new technologies and a growing demand for new products are changing the textiles market.

Slide 5: 

What is Innovation? “Innovation is not the product of logical thought, although the result is tied to logical structure" Albert Einstein

Slide 6: 

A definition of Innovation! There are various definitions of innovation, depending on the context. Innovation is a process for transforming: Research Based Ideas Commercial Value

Slide 19: 

Emerging finishing technologies for textiles Plasma technology Atmospheric and low-pressure Treatments Microencapsulation technology Functional fabric finishing Nanotechnology Nano coating, Electrospinning

Slide 20: 

What is Nanotechnology? Nanotechnology deals with the science and technology at dimensions of roughly 1 to 100 nanometers (nm). 1 Billion Nanometres = 1 Metre 100 nanometers presently is the practically attainable dimension for textile products and applications.

Slide 21: 

Growth of Nanotechnology The nature of nanotechnology research and development suggests that nanomaterials production is going to impact every industry, including textiles.

Slide 22: 

Nanotechnology currently being developed and used Nanotechnology can be used in engineering desired textile attributes: Fabric softness, durability, and breathability Developing advanced performance characteristics, namely: Water repellency, fire retardancy, antimicrobial resistance, etc. In the forms of: Polymeric nanofibres Conjugate fibres containing nano-particles Textile materials with nanofinishes Textile coatings containing nano-particles Nanotechnology presents a tremendous opportunity for the global textile industry to generate new products that could energize the economy, solve major societal problems, revitalize existing industry, and create entirely new businesses.

Slide 23: 

Impact of Nanotechnology on Textiles Industry A recent report shows that: The global market for nanotechnology in the Textiles industry was around US$480 million in 2007. A number of nano-based products have already been introduced to the sector including stain, water and fire resistant fabrics. Nano-based products and processes will be worth US$4.9 billion to the Textiles industry by 2015. Nearly 25% of all textiles products available in 2015 will incorporate some form of nanotechnology -hygiene area, which covers numerous markets from household care to leisure and consumer goods to healthcare. Nanotechnology based applications such self-cleaning textiles as will start to make a major impact from 2011.

Slide 24: 

Nanotechnology: functional finishing The functional finishing are processes which impart specific performance properties to fabrics For example finishes that: Improve comfort Improve ease of maintenance Improve durability Provide environmental protection Provide biological resistance Self-cleaning fibres Small things can create big businesses !!!

Slide 25: 

Active Areas of Textile R&D: Functional Textiles Fragrance release textiles Photocatalytic textile coatings Shape Memory Polymers for Intelligent textiles Self-Cleaning Fabrics Carbon Nanotubes for Electronic Textiles Multifunctional Coatings for Medical Textile Applications Textile switches and sensors, and electronic noses Bioactive wound dressings Electrically conductive textiles Stain and water repellent textiles Healing textiles

Slide 26: 

Applications of Nanotechnology Based Textiles

Slide 27: 

Innovation: A Pakistani Textile Industry Perspective

Slide 28: 

Pakistani textile industry is a major contributor to the economy of the country The sector has not yet realised its full potential The industry is still too traditionally minded The industry needs to take full advantage of the developments in the global arena Pakistani Textile Industry: As It appears --

Slide 36: 

(US $ 10.211 B Pakistan Textile Industry: The Way Forward Pakistani textile industry must adopt a fresh approach to technology adoption The companies and government need to invest resources into R&D Develop the ability to create specialized products These could include textiles made using new technologies – woven, knitting, nonwoven, etc. New products – surgical gowns, geotextiles, fabrics used in agriculture, high-fashion apparel, and fire-resistant work-wear. The textile industry should be a knowledge-intensive industry - willing to look for and apply knowledge

Slide 37: 

Trying to match low-wage countries with low cost production - Surely a losing strategy.

Slide 38: 

(US $ 10.211 B Pakistan Textile Industry: What is needed? Improve infrastructure services as a foundation for technology development Improve higher education in science and engineering Link universities with private sector activities Breakdown barriers between university departments Promote innovative activities in science & technology Improve policy to create/promote innovative environment Focus on strategic and under-funded research areas

Slide 39: 

(US $ 10.211 B Pakistan Textile Industry: Some Specific Actions Establish Centres of Excellence > Education > R&D > Targeted workshops/training programmes Focus on new and emerging technologies > Technical textiles > Nonwovens > Medical Textiles > Geotextiles > Nanotechnology > Effluent minimisation and treatment/disposal

Slide 40: 

(US $ 10.211 B Innovation: Industry-University Interaction Benefits of universities, industry and society working together: Sponsored research projects: funding, equipment and resource donations Shared knowledge Source of employment New idea generation Universities and industrial organisations have much to gain from each other There is a strong need to improve interaction between these two important sectors This will enhance innovative activities in the textile sector An effective mechanism is needed to nurture this interaction

Slide 41: 

(US $ 10.211 B CONCLUSIONS Innovation has become the major driving force in economic growth and social development in the West. This is reflected by the fact that Western countries are promoting innovation as one of their core strategies. Providing support for activities and initiatives that promote an innovative and knowledge driven economy.

Slide 42: 

A Final Thought !!!!! There are three kinds of organizations: Those that resist change Those that accept change Those that seek change

Slide 43: 

Surely Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition. [Al-Qur'an (13:11) ]
