The article discusses the cost analysis of energy-efficient production on the textile industry. It is said that the discovery of new supplies and alternative energies help improve textile operations, yet they are costly in development and extraction. Globalization under fierce competition is an energy cost factor which resulted to low market prices for yarns, thus, low margins on the textile industry. Costs of resources to save energy for spinning operation is explored. The innovative concepts and intelligent components to reduce energy consumption are also discussed.
