Automation is not new to the industrial knitting equipment market or the textile industry. However, it has its limitations. Garment manufacturers can produce thousands of identical-looking knitted apparel in a day with the current machinery. The current scenario overlooks the demand for custom-designed apparel which has been on a rise. Textile manufacturers, however, have been unable to capitalize on the trend owing to the lack of expertise and equipment required to produce custom-design apparel. A recent breakthrough in the knitting industry finally shows the potential to open up new prospects in the textile market. Researchers at Carnage Mellon University have written a sophisticated algorithm that can transform 3D designs into stitch-by-stitch instructions for industrial knitting equipment. The newfound discovery can aid textile manufacturers in producing custom sizes and designs at affordable costs. The algorithm breaks down 3D meshes into step by step instructions for V-bed knitting machines. With the algorithm, garment manufacturers with proficient designing knowledge would be able to input 3D designs or meshes as instruction for the machine to knit. The feature will, therefore, allow manufacturers to work without the requirement of expert knowledge of computer programming. The technology could pioneer the industry towards a new market for custom sized and designed apparel.

Monitoring systems to observe and note the operations of knitting machine offer the potential to evaluate the performance of a machine which, in turn, aid in the calculation of the overall productivity of the plant. A crucial aspect that influences the quality and the quantity of production in industrial knitting is the number of faults a machine commits while operating. The information about the frequency and extent of faults allows manufacturers to plan production and evaluate the overall productivity of the plant. Ongoing research in the area aims to detect, identify, and locate the faults committed by knitting machines during production by monitoring the yarn input tension. The system can potentially help garment makers in identifying flaws in production and address them to enhance quality and productivity. Such developments are expected to aid in improving the quality of industrial knitting equipment.

A flurry of advancements in technology is enabling textile manufacturers to continuously enhance the quality of their products. The novel loop transfer technology incorporated in circular knitting machines allows for the seamless transfer of stitches thereby enabling manufacturers to produce structured designs and shaped fabrics. Some other mechanisms and equipment that allow manufacturers to have more control over the quality of products are ultra-fine gauge circular knitting machine and pile and silver insertion mechanism. The new-age technology has allowed textile manufacturers to gain more control over the design, shape, and quality of the finished products which has helped industrial knitting equipment garner popularity.

Advancements in technology and breakthroughs in multiple verticals have enabled researchers to experiment with the utility of knitting equipment in verticals other than the textile industry. For instance, a team of researchers from the Advanced Textiles Research Group (ATRG) began knitting antenna reflectors for use in outer space. The research at ATRG is aimed at utilizing advancements in knitting technology to knit a cost-effective, lightweight, and robust antenna from gold-wire which can reflect solar radiations and enable transmission and receiving of signals. The idea alludes at the possibility of using knitting machinery for manufacturing of space equipment and can further propel research in the field.

The industrial knitting equipment market is expected to witness the highest growth in the Asian Pacific region on the back of availability of cheap raw material and labor in the region. China and Japan are expected to be the forerunners of growth in the region followed by India and Bangladesh which are emerging as the new textile hubs of the world. Europe and North America are estimated to follow the Asian Pacific region owing to the demand for localized textile and adoption of advanced technology in the region. Researches to promote the utility of knitting equipment across verticals is expected to further propel the growth of the industrial knitting equipment market in the region.
