LONDON - Data and analytics company GlobalData says garment factories need to invest in reskilling workers for the digital age if they hope to retain business in a world increasingly concerned with sustainability and social welfare.

Hannah Abdulla, GlobalData's apparel correspondent, says digital processes - such as 3D design, automation and artificial intelligence - have the potential to help meet the sustainability requirements of brands and consumers.

She warns that they could also cause "hundreds of thousands of job losses" as traditional garment manufacturing skills become obsolete but says new opportunities could replace them.
