Textile industry: reap the fruits of patents in the challenges

as one of the traditional industries that China used to be proud of, China's textile industry has been advancing in opportunities and challenges in the past 10 years. It is worth mentioning that in recent years, a number of innovative textile enterprises have worked hard, leaving a perfect footnote for the transformation from "made in China" to "created in China". According to relevant statistical data, in 2002, only 8053 domestic and foreign patent applications were submitted by China's textile industry to measure the size of the friction surface based on this measurement benchmark; In the past 2011, the number of domestic and foreign patent applications for the textile industry accepted and published by the State Intellectual Property Office reached 49814. Relevant experts said frankly that innovation not only helped Chinese textile enterprises survive the cold winter of the global financial crisis, but also allowed the entire textile industry to reap the fruits of patents, thereby creating a number of national brands with world influence

According to statistics, in 2001, there were 1837 large and medium-sized textile enterprises in China, of which only 348 were textile enterprises with special R & D institutions, accounting for less than 20%; By 2004, the number had further decreased to about 300. Correspondingly, until 2004, the textile industry, as an important part of China's national economy, submitted more than 10000 patent applications at home and abroad for the first time. In sharp contrast, according to the statistics of the Ministry of Commerce, the U.S. textile industry has submitted 288583 patent applications worldwide in 2001, and Japan reached a staggering 395110 in 2002

Gao Yong, vice president and Secretary General of the China Textile Industry Federation, said in an interview that before 2005, in accordance with the provisions of the agreement on textiles and clothing, there were quota restrictions on the export volume of China's textile and clothing products, which has been a difficult problem for the development of most Chinese textile enterprises. Therefore, during this period, processing with supplied materials accounted for a large proportion of the total income of textile enterprises, and the concept of "mass production" was more popular than "innovation"

the technical disadvantage was infinitely amplified after the elimination of the quota restrictions on the export volume of China's textile and clothing products in 2005 to maximize the utilization of reactants. Although the production capacity of domestic textile enterprises has been fully released, with the arrival of the global financial crisis, the price of raw materials in the textile industry continues to rise, and low cost can no longer become the competitive advantage of domestic textile enterprises. Many enterprises fall into the embarrassing situation of "selling more and losing more". At the same time, the low price of domestic textile enterprises killing each other caused the global "anti-dumping" killer of Chinese products, and at the same time, patent infringement litigation was launched in due course

for example, in the lawsuit of Japanese brothers Co., Ltd. against Shanghai and Yueqing, which are widely influential in the industry, on suspicion of infringing the patent right of sewing machine equipment invention, Chinese textile enterprises were awarded 180000 yuan. "Brother Co., Ltd. has submitted 3000 patent applications in China alone, including more than 2000 invention patent applications, and more than 1200 invention patent applications have been authorized. Regardless of litigation strategy, Japanese enterprises have gained the upper hand in terms of patent quantity and quality comparison, and adjusted the screw height," said Li Donghui, the plaintiff's agent in this case and a lawyer of Shanghai Yiping law firm

facing the dilemma of development, Chinese textile enterprises have reached the cusp of the storm. Gao Yong told that from the perspective of the number of patent applications, it can be seen that textile in western developed countries has long been rid of the mode of relying on low-cost labor and extensive development of resources, and has developed into a "sophisticated" technology. Therefore, the only way out for China's textile industry is through technological innovation to accelerate the transformation of the mode of economic development, promote industrial upgrading, and create independent brands

breaking the bottleneck

according to the China Textile Industry Federation, in the process of coping with the global financial crisis, although some processing enterprises withdrew from the market stage with the deterioration of the international environment, some textile enterprises relying on independent innovation and having independent intellectual property rights went against the trend. Located in Huzhou, Zhejiang Province, meixinda printing and Dyeing Group Co., Ltd. actively carried out industry university research cooperation with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, etc., established a patent work management team, implemented performance evaluation on the team members, and proposed the goal that the R & D personnel should submit no less than 3 invention patent applications every year. So far, the company has submitted 107 domestic and foreign patent applications, and the sales revenue of patented products accounts for more than 50% of the total revenue; In Wujiang, Jiangsu Province, Shenghong Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. has derived hundreds of varieties of superfine fibers through further research and development of superfine fibers, firmly controlled the technological and industrial commanding heights, and overcome the technical problem known by global peers as "Shenghong limit" - as long as one kilogram or two of superfine fibers around the world, 431 domestic and foreign patent applications have been submitted, and the sales revenue last year exceeded 26billion yuan

the practice of textile enterprises such as mixinda and Shenghong has injected a shot of strength into the domestic textile industry, and more and more textile enterprises begin to pay more attention to independent innovation. According to statistics, in the 10 years from 2002 to 2011, in the field of textile raw material technology, which best reflects the technology of the textile industry but uses the innovative ability of tensile testing machines, the number of domestic and foreign patent applications accepted and published by the State Intellectual Property Office reached 151.37 million, including 10455 invention patent applications and 4025 invention patent authorizations. This group of data is rising year by year, showing a gratifying development trend

building independent brands requires strong independent innovation ability, and the number and quality of patents are an important embodiment of independent innovation ability. After ten years of quenching, China's textile industry has won the market and obtained patents; In the future, Chinese textile enterprises will be able to create more and more influential national brands
