Global Flat Knitting Machines Market-Market Dynamics

The rising trend in the garments sector concerning complex knitting patterns in sweaters and associated fabric items have influenced the growth of the flat knitting machines positively. The flat knitting machines are adept at constructing complex patterns owing to the computerization of knitting technology, with the advent of software and tools further assisting in the process. The overall requirement for complex designs is hence completed by the flat knitting machines with low energy consumption and limited wastage of fabric material. The improvement in components of flat knitting machines has further contributed to the enhancement of workflow efficiency and upgradations in techniques, offering new opportunities for fabric design to textile manufacturers in quick time, further driving the market growth. The upgraded yarn system has enhanced the efficiency of knitting techniques, generally with rising in maximum speed, up to 1.2 m/sec. The procurement of raw materials needed for the manufacturing of flat knitting machines, however, involves high initial investment, hindering in the effective production procedure of the machines. The initial heavy costs associated with flat knitting machines have considerably hampered the growth prospects of the market since lack in substantial capital would often restrict manufacturers from initiating the design of flat knitting machines. The advent and recent trend of intarsia designs and patterns in the fabrics and textile industries owing to high aesthetic appeal and sophisticated value are poised to offer flat knitting manufacturers ample opportunities for the product application and business expansion during the forecast period.
