Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and digitalisation are just some of the buzz words that are fuelling innovation in 2019. These concepts have captured the imagination of technology strategists across all sectors of industry and commerce, and textiles is no exception.
As IoT platforms and smart factories offer new, more efficient solutions in product development and manufacturing, Textile 4.0 delivers vital insights into the burgeoning transformation of the textile & apparel value chain. It covers a spectrum of content, from technologies enabling the personalisation trend to supply chain transparency, the latest in fabric gripping robotics, smart clothing and much more.
And in 2021, Textile 4.0 will assess the accuracy of industry forecasts that suggest the impact of Covid-19 on the global supply chain will accelerate the implementation of digitalised manufacturing technologies.

Industry 4.0 • Internet of Things • Digitally Enabled Business
