Abstract:

The situation of many Polish textile producers is difficult. Lifting import quotas on textile products following Polish accession to the EU and the Schengen zone has resulted in a vast increase in the supply of apparel and textile products, mainly from Asian countries. According to the recommendation of the European Commission, one of the methods to remain competitive against low prices offered by China or India is to offer innovative products of considerably better quality. Unfortunately, it is estimated that only 25% of all textile enterprises innovate, most which occurring through imitation. While most Polish companies limit their expenses on R&D activities by adapting external ideas to local needs, some attempt to create competitive advantage has been made by introducing more advanced technologies. Nanotechnology is providing solutions that may help businesses gain technological advantage. This article presents financial aspects of the introduction of antibacterial and bacteriostatic fabrics.
