R&D competition, product strength is competitiveness
Home textile industry has farewell to the past competitive format and entered the stage of brand competition. The composition of brand influence and reputation, on the one hand, belongs to the "exterior" marketing, and the "interior" supported by design and technology is particularly important.
Through comparative research and development, apart from Shuixing Home Textile research and development costs decreased by 14.77% compared with 2017, Fuanna and Dohia have invested more money and manpower than in previous years to upgrade the core technology, and exert their efforts in the design of patterns and styles.

Because of the relatively small market size, the R&D investment of pattern design is 23.9696 million yuan, but it has increased by 50.99% compared with the R&D investment in 2017, and has increased from more than 200 products to nearly 400 products every year.

From the performance of six textile enterprises, R&D investment and channel layout, the competition of home textile industry has entered a comprehensive stage of competition, such as channel power, product power and brand power. With the more obvious market concentration in 2019 and the slowdown of the overall development of the industry, for listed home textile companies, while coping with the rising pressure of raw materials and labor costs, Still need to constantly strengthen their own advantages (channels, products, etc.) to enhance the core competitiveness of enterprises.
