The Canadian Textile Industry has prepared a twenty-year strategy known as the Technology Roadmap to determine its future positioning. Specialised products (technical textiles and other value-added textiles) will be targeted, taking into account the various forces that will drive demand for years to come.
This product-focus requires implementing, improving and combining existing technologies such as composite and hybrid technologies (woven, knitted and non-woven), intelligent technologies, technologies related to non-wovens, high-performance fibres and fabrics, nanotechnologies and biotechnologies.
The Technology Roadmap calls for the utilization of scientific and technical resources and the implementation of dynamic R&D cooperation platforms, innovation, commercialization and business networking. These platforms will offer business intelligence, leadership and proactive processes. This initiative will enable the industry to develop a critical mass that will interest major public and private clients and group them around structuring projects.
