Since the advent of Covid-19 in 2020, the world apparel market is going through a series of uncertain situations. The pandemic put the textile and apparel industry of Bangladesh into immense distress, ruptured multiple systems, and left it out of breath. Lockdown halted sales, business operations, and disrupted the supply chain. Many workers lost their jobs in the industry. The situation started to ameliorate with positive growth in the year 2021 after an exerted effort by the industry stakeholders. And it is expected that the growth will continue in the year 2022.
Engr. Md. Aminul Islam, President of Association of Textile Engineers & Technologists (ATET) and Managing Director of Dara Technology (BD) Limited shared his thoughts on the performance of the textile industry in 2022.
A.T.I Corporation has been working with the Bangladesh T&A industry since 2006 to meet the industry demand for reliable machinery, garment equipment and textile testing equipment. We are working to make the latest technology easily accessible within the shortest possible time and at the same time, we want to be the best option available in the market.
So many things are happening at the same time. End-users are becoming more concerned about what they are wearing and brands are asking for more standards to stay on the same page with end-users.
Technology is changing very fast with the surge of industry 4.0, more sophisticated and high-level accuracy equipment are replacing the old ones.
Bangladesh’s T&A industry is trying to enter into diversified options. With the entrance of a new area, new challenges are coming ahead.
Challenges are opportunities at the same time. We need to work with the new demands of the brands. ATIC is dedicated to offering the latest technology to the industry and it would be a new experience for us to explore new dimensions with the entrance into diversified products with the Bangladesh T&A industry.
