What are the main trends and characteristics of the Japanese technical textile sector? 

The global technical textile industry has seen rapid growth in the past few decades, and Japan has become a prime location for the development, manufacturing and consumption of technical textiles. Despite a recent slowdown in production of technical textiles due to the global financial crisis and the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, research indicates that Japan's technical textile sector is recovering as economies stabilise and new technologies emerge. This Webinar will provide an overview of recent trends within this promising and rapidly developing sector, and in particular on the growing emphasis on healthy, environmentally friendly technical textiles among Japan's major manufacturers.  It will also evaluate the long-term viability of the Japanese technical textile sector, making the case that the future of this industry in Japan lies in innovative, niche variations of their existing technical textile foundations.

This webinar is targeted at EU companies seeking to enter the Japanese technical textile market.
