Circular Knitting Machines Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Growth, Forecast 2017 – 2025

Knitted products were first hand knitted dating back to the Egyptian civilization. Soon, European culture took over the art of knitting and after the industrial revolution, knitting was done with the help of machines. Knitting machines can be primarily bifurcated as flat beds and circular beds. Circular knitting machines have a machine structure with needles and yarn feeds arranged in a circular pattern. Circular knitting machines help manufacture longer and wider fabrics especially to cater to applications such as seamless fabrics and higher gauge fabric composition. Fabrics are either used without cutting in seamless garments or are cut and sewed for multi-parts apparel. The circular knitting machine is feed with yarns of a specific count and a seamless tube of fabric falls in the inside bottom of the machine.
