    Whereas glass was the main material for bottles in the last century, producers and consumers more and more favoured PET – polyethylenterephthalate –  since the late 1980s. These “polyester” bottles come with the distinctive advantages of being lightweight and almost unbreakable. However, the success generates the new challenge of coping with billions of discarded bottles each year, Dr Lassad Nasri, Senior Manager Technology and Product Management, Trützschler Switzerland AG, explained.

    The world is moving towards sustainable material for a better future. That is what makes pineapple fibre important, says Vanali Ballikar.
    The world is moving towards sustainable material for a better life for future generations. The textile industry's main concern is to give mankind superior, sustainable products that are close to nature. Pineapple fibre is one such natural source of minor fibre. It has seen rising demand in the eco market. A detailed study on the source, cultivation, extraction and processing of pineapple fibres reveals that these fibres can be used as an alternative to leather. This edible fruit that has medicinal values now finds another avatar in textile applications. The fibres can be extracted from the leaf as well as the fruit. The study also gives properties and applications of pineapple fibres towards more sustainable living.

    Global market for specialty fibers totaled $ 11.26 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach $ 28.25 billion by 2022 with a compound Annual growth of 12.19% through 2022. Specialty fibers market is expected to growth on account of increasing demand of light weight and high strength composite materials. There are several factors are estimated to drive the specialty fibers market over the forecast period. Those factors include high strength to weight ratio of specialty fibers, consumer friendly qualities of the material such as stain resistance, water proofing and stretching, and also materials having excellent mechanical properties, durability and thermal stability. Various industries such as transportation, marine, aerospace and automotive are expected to drive specialty synthetic fibers demand over the forecast period. Growing demand of optical fiber cables and expansion of electronic industry are anticipated to shoot up consume of specialty synthetic fibers. Innovative applications of glass fibers and synthetic fibers such as adding metallic properties in the cloth, usage in battery separators and in the process of filtration are expected to augment the glass fibers and specialty fibers demand over next seven years. Carbon fiber is expected to confirm highest growth rate over the forecast period on account of its high strength to weight ratio.  (Source: www.reportlinker.com)
