Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Vendors are using laser technology and ultrasonic technology to improve the accuracy of fabric cutting. Laser technology provides better edge cutting for fabrics of various thicknesses. This technology also reduces the time for changing the cutting heads in different fabrics, thus increasing productivity. Ultrasonic technology helps in cutting all fabrics with sealed edges to prevent their fraying. With advances in technology, wastage can be reduced, which allows sustainable utilization of resources and enhances profit margins of vendors.”
