The statis­tics show the ris­ing im­por­tance of knit­ting in the ap­parel in­dus­try. The bulk pro­duc­tion of the knit­ted gar­ments has in­creased the de­pend­abil­ity on cir­cu­lar knit­ting ma­chines as it al­ways has an ad­van­tage over flat knit­ting when it comes to knit­ting com­mod­ity prod­ucts such as T-shirts, out­er­wear and un­der­gar­ments. Ad­di­tion­ally, cir­cu­lar knit­ting ma­chines are in­creas­ingly be­com­ing pop­u­lar these days with the surg­ing de­mand for swimwear and seam­less ap­par­els.
