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.

The circular knitting machines can create a number of designs with stitch structures such as 2-sided fabrics, fleece, blister, interlock, rib, jacquard, mattress ticking, needle set-out, plated plush, transfer technique, waffle etc. Moreover, both dyed as well as raw yarns are fed into the circular knitting machines. Companies are innovating their needle technologies to come up with the finest fabrics. Researchers are working continuously on the spirality, GSM, shrinkage of the knitted fabrics, and product differentiation. Various determining factors while choosing the right circular knitting machines are end fabric details such as count, twist, machine settings, and other parameters.

There has been a considerable increase in the demand for knitted apparel in diverse applications such as protective wear, sportswear, shapewear, casuals, and winter wear amongst others. Circular knitting machines are preferred for bulk production, as large diameter fabrics can be produced from circular knit beds. Moreover, technical textiles are increasingly being adopted into diverse industries. These technical textile fabrics are produced from the circular knitting machines with varied fabric constructions. Additionally, apparel manufacturers are looking forward to customized fabrics with complicated knitting construction patterns. These factors are expected to drive the global circular knitting machines market. Players in the global circular knitting machines market are challenged by the cheap quality machines which reduces the cost of production. These players can gain opportunistic market by expanding and entering into omni-channels for distribution network.

The global circular knitting machines market is witnessing the trend of more players entering the seamless circular knitting machines market to cater to diverse garment industries.
