“With the popularity of knitted sports shoes around the globe, various chinese sportswear brands have developed and launched their own knitted sports shoes,” the organiser sources said.
“From knitting machines to shoe upper machines, the market is at the forefront of a new technological revolution,” sources added.
The four-day event focuses on the applications of automated textile technology in different areas to help companies transform and upgrade.
Current sportswear products only emphasise on functionality, such as anti-bacterial, deodorant, anti-UV, moisture perspiration, etc. by adding certain agents to the fabrics.
According to the organisers, sportswear fabrics will innovate and improve in terms of production technology in 2015, such as fabric weight reduction, flexibility enhancement and pattern diversification.
