Textiles Intelligence interviewed exhibitors and industry experts at the November 2018 edition of Performance Days in Munich, Germany, to identify the latest trends and innovations in performance fabrics. At the fair, the problem of fibre shedding and the importance of reducing water consumption and water pollution were widely discussed.

Indeed, many innovations presented at the fair focused on the use of dyeing technologies which consume little or no water while others focused on fibres derived from recycled waste materials and biodegradable fibres and fabrics. Several companies highlighted the benefits of using anti-odour and temperature control technologies to minimise the need to launder garments. Awards were presented at the fair to companies which had developed the most innovative fabrics in the categories of performance and environmental sustainability.

Many of the fabrics presented at the fair had been inspired by fashion, but there also was an abundance of environmentally sustainable fabrics, lightweight performance fabrics, and fabrics with novel constructions and finishes. This report provides insight into the general trends and themes presented at Performance Days. Furthermore, it discusses the innovations presented by the award winners, and the latest developments from some of the industry’s key players, including 37.5 Technology, HeiQ, Movetec, Polartec, Südwolle Group, and Sympatex Technologies.

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.

    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license

This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide).
