 Summary of news published since Week 26-2016

jpa4Sibil220FUNCTIONAL improvements of fibres and fabrics reported here this week bear witness to the efforts of the industry to provide consumers with better products. These include stretch laces with improved aesthetics and function, stretch fibres with antimicrobial properties and other products that provide greater value for consumers. Such improvements will benefit mainly branded products and will help established labels to defend their market share against low price and lower quality commodity products. This creates a situation that illustrates perfectly the working of a market economy that meets most effectively the requirements of all consumers, ranging from low quality at bottom price to the highest quality at premium price. A word of warning, though: the system will function optimally only when brands provide genuine benefits and succeed in communicating effectively with distributors as well as with consumers.
