At present, functional fibers in developed countries are developing rapidly. According to reports, functional textiles account for 39% of all textiles, with Japan accounting for 39%, Europe accounted for 21%, and the United States accounting for 28%. In general, Japan is the world leader in the research and development of functional fibers in the fields of apparel textiles and medicine and health, and Europe and the United States respectively occupy the world's leading position in the research and development of functional fibers in the industrial and high-tech fields.
