STRATEGIES OF LEADING INTERNATIONAL TECHNICAL TEXTILES COMPANIES, 3rd edition, is a completely revised and updated edition of this major report, written by the internationally respected textiles journalist Adrian Wilson. The third edition examines, in depth, the strategies of the world's leading technical textiles companies, and analyses the major changes to the industry brought about by the previous financial crisis.

Acquisition strategy, financial performance and company missions have all changed enormously due to the prevailing economic climate and this report looks at the alterations, both voluntary and enforced, that this has brought about. The report examines the strategies, acquisitions, structures, initiatives, financial performance, new product development, capital expenditure, geographical expansion and future prospects of the major companies in all sectors of technical textiles.

The study is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the development and prospects for the industrial and high performance textiles industry, whether you are a supplier, a manufacturer, an end-user or an industry watcher.
