The textile industry, in particular, was transformed by industrialization. Before mechanization and factories, textiles were made mainly in people’s homes (giving rise to the term cottage industry), with merchants often providing the raw materials and basic equipment, and then picking up the finished product. Workers set their own schedules under this system, which proved difficult for merchants to regulate and resulted in numerous inefficiencies

An innovation was something that was already created but someone made it better than the previous or first product before it.

Impact of innovation was again either good or bad because it depended if the innovator made a better product than the original one and adjusted it to make it work better. Because not always is the first person’s invention works out in all scenarios so that is why people adjusted it constantly for example a phone. It keeps on getting better and better with new features and things like that. series of innovations led to ever-increasing productivity, while requiring less human energy. For example, around 1764, Englishman James Hargreaves (1722-1778) invented the spinning engine a machine that enabled an individual to produce multiple spools of threads simultaneously. By the time of Hargreaves’ death, there were over 20,000 spinning jenny’s in use across Britain. The spinning engine was improved upon by British inventor Samuel Compton’s (1753-1827) spinning mule, as well as later machines. Another key innovation in textiles, the power loom, which mechanized the process of weaving cloth, was developed in the 1780s by English inventor Edmund Cartwright (1743-1823).

Inventor or invention is some Individual who is the first to develop or manufacturer something.
Impact of inventions were that they could be good or bad meaning that if someone created a simple way of doing something it would be easy…...

The Role of Technology in the Growth of the Philippine Textile Industry

...By: Janina Mae Almirez Industrial Analysis International Master of Business Administration Chung Yuan Christian University November 15, 2012 ABSTRACT The rise of globalization has shifted the manufacturers of textile and apparel to many different parts of the world in search for cheaper labor and maximization of profits. Trade liberalization also means that the world can be your market, and that everyone can be your competitor. We examine the current state of the Philippine textile industry in this context, and the role that technology plays in an industry that is struggling to survive in the face of stifling competition. The Philippines textile industry has suffered steady decline in the past several decades despite starting out strong in its early stages. This study aims to explore the potential for growth of the Philippine’s textile industry given a boost in more advanced technology and innovation. The author focuses on technology because this is the one thing that other countries have already adopted, and with which the Philippines has still yet to fully embrace, partly due to lack of funding and government support. This study will look at the Philippine textile industry’s production output from the year 2000-2010, and aims to establish a relationship between the production volume and the number of patents awarded to innovators within the Philippines, which will be used as a measure of the country’s technological advancement. This research used regression......

Textile Industry

...this time period, societies in Europe and America lead to urbanization. For the first time, humans moved from an agrarian lifestyle to an urban lifestyle. Industrialization marked a shift in power, machinery, factories, and mass production. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, manufacturing was usually done in people’s homes, using their hands or basic machines. The Industrial Revolution is the name given to the movement in which machines changed people's way of life as well as their methods of manufacture. One specific manufactory that was transformed by this innovation was the way we produced clothes, which is now known textile industry. The textile industry can be described as industries that are primarily concerned with the design or manufacture of clothing as well as the distribution and use of textiles. Before machines and factories, people created textiles in their own homes, which required long tedious hours of hard work. They had the most basic equipment and provided themselves with all the raw materials. The problem with not being a legit foundry or business, led to people only working when they felt like working and on their own schedules. Either not enough products were being made or the results were inefficient. As the industrial revolution began to spread, the physical demand for labor was decreasing and required less energy for satisfying productivity through the use of inventions.

There are several reasons behind the increased interest in the management of supply chains after the 1990s. Firstly, companies have been moving away from vertical integration, and moving towards specialization, thus having the need to deal with, and rely on, more outside sources. In order to reduce production costs, most textile firms have already outsourced production of their goods......

Swot Textile Industry

...SWOT Textile industry Strengths Include as strengths any formulas or policies your company uses that give it an edge in name recognition, brand positioning and bottom-line revenue. For example, many designers have two avenues of distribution, a couture line and a ready-to-wear, off-the-rack line more accessible to buyers with average incomes. This is a strength because it allows the designer's name to reach a larger audience of potential customers and the brand to make more sales. For example, Giorgio Armani includes high-priced couture and a ready-to-wear line available through Armani Exchange; Issac Mizrahi designs both couture and a ready-to-wear line sold exclusively through retailer Target. Weaknesses Consider as weaknesses any unusual or unnecessary costs, unknown designers or lack of presence in a particular region. Consider also everything used to define strengths. A lack of any of the strengths is considered a weakness within SWOT analysis. Opportunities Look at the politics of each region, both in itself and in relation to the U.S., to identify opportunities. Watch for the repeal of trade embargoes, a new or newly accessible source of raw materials such as fabric or thread or a newly green source of raw materials like sustainable natural fabric fiber. For example, for years, China was inaccessible as a source of labor, supply or export sales due to inter-governmental tension and its fundamental attitude toward commerce. However, recently China has loosened...

Vietnam’s Textile Industry

...This paper seeks to look at Vietnam’s economy, financial sector, and political sector in respect to the textile industry. In an attempt to evaluate the feasibility of entering a foreign market, we focus our paper on a mid-sized company called Augusta Textile Company. This paper seeks to evaluate Vietnam’s potential for investment, particularly in the textile industry. While the company seeks to increase revenues and keep costs of production low, the company must look to expand to growing markets. However, various risks must be taken into consideration, as they can be great barriers to entry. The company looks to expand with the least financial risk, but greatest potential output and revenue. In evaluating the textile industry in Vietnam, as well as potential modes of entry, we may conclude a recommendation for Augusta Textile Industry’s future potential expansion. Introduction Country Basics Vietnam is formally known as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and is located in the South China Sea. It is the thirteenth most highly populated country in the world (Hossain, 2010). The current population of Vietnam is estimated at about 90.4 million (The Heritage Foundation, n.d.). There are 54 officially recognized ethnic groups in Vietnam, but the majority are Viet (also known as “Kinh”), comprising of about 86% of the total population. Other significant ethnic groups are the Tay, Thai, Muong, Khome, and Hoa. The vast majority of the Vietnamese population speaks the Vietnamese...

Working Capital Management in Textile Industries

... or more successive sets of figures are reviewed, or is used to evaluate the company's financial statement against industry standards. * These methods are used separately or in combination. They are part of the tools that enable experienced credit professionals to reach a credit decision. Financial statements are spread and analyzed, with appropriate ratios and flows calculated as an aid in the customer evaluation. As an important first step in internal analysis, the financial statements are examined for validity and general correctness. After the statement has been accepted as valid and reasonably accurate, ratios are calculated and the figures analyzed. Internal analysis calls for an examination of items within a single financial statement for the purpose of judging their significance in relation to the capital of the company, its method of operation and conditions prevailing within the industry. The major tools for internal analysis are balance sheet ratios and a working knowledge of the line of business including the method of operation and seasonal influences. * Ratios are mathematical aids for appraisal and comparison of financial statements. They are used to supplement currency amount inspection, to examine inter-item relationships and to compare a specific company's performance against its industry standard. * The use of ratios reduces the influence of currency size on analysis since these comparisons are ......

Bangladesh Textile Industry

...Bangladesh economy is based mainly on the textile industry. As we all know that Bangladesh is the second largest Textile industry in the world after China. Even though Bangladesh comes under the least developed nation it has some comparative advantage which makes Bangladesh the second largest exporter in Textile. One of the most important comparative advantage is the low cost labour. In garments factories women are the main reason for low cost labour “In 2004, there were 3480 factories that employed 1.8 million workers of which 1.5 million were women”. (Khosla, 2009, para.1). These higher number of women working in textile industries are due to lack of education, easy technology, and the women have less alternative to work in any other places other than garments factories, they work at a very cheap rate other than men, women workers are reliable and they are always in fear of getting fired if they don’t do their work properly these is the main reason why the textile industry owners hire women’s. The second comparative advantage for Bangladesh is the supply chain which has contributed to boost economic development. Neighbouring factories help the textile industry with the manufacture of the product and supply on demand locally which helps the company from export and import taxes, transport, storage, outsourcing from other countries due to which the cost of the product decreases. The third competitive advantage is the western countries who imports textile from china don’t want......

Performance of Textile Industry in Industrialisation: a Study with Reference to India

...PERFORMANCE OF TEXTILE INDUSTRY IN INDUSTRIALISATION: A STUDY WITH REFERENCE TO INDIA INTRODUCTION Prosperity of any nation is extremely difficult without industrial development – is a well established truth for all the economies – developing or developed. Economic development and industrialization have became so closely integrated with each other that progress of an economy is now accessed from the success it has achieved in transformation from agricultural set up into a industrial set up. Through industrialization a situation is created whereby many industries are set up rapidly and ultimately backward areas are converted into economically developed areas and backward economies into developed economies. Industrialization, infact is a composite term which involves a number of structural changes such as changes in the production techniques, factor intensities, industrial employment and output. Industrialization is not only a way to increase output or national income but is a means of introducing modern technology and changing ways of life and finally the structure of the economy because of its self-reinforcing quality. But the all above cannot be executed without a well planned industrial policy. The industrial polity provides direction to the pace of industrialization and industrial development. Hence, to industrialize the country, India too, framed industrial policy which was amended, modified and reoriented several times. The First Industrial Policy was framed in......

LiliannePloumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, is also making 9 million euros available to help improve the appalling conditions suffered by the country’s textile workers. The Netherlands will cofinance these efforts together with the textile sector. ‘All those involved – the textile industry, manufacturers, consumers and governments – must shoulder their responsibility now in order to break this vicious circle,’ said the Minister, stressing the synergy between aid and trade. ‘We can’t keep blaming each other.’ As co-chair of the coordination group, the Netherlands will engage in political dialogue with the Bangladeshi authorities and employer organisations on behalf of its fellow donor countries, coordinating and monitoring international efforts in this area. In the Netherlands, Ms Ploumen is discussing the matter with the companies and organisations involved to produce a detailed joint action plan with measurable goals and a clear schedule.
