TAI Mumbai Unit to host technical textile seminar at Vapi
The Textile Association (India), Mumbai Unit is organising a seminar on technical textiles – titled “Technical textiles: Need of today and tomorrow” – on January 29, 2022 at Hotel Fortune Park Galaxy, Vapi, Gujarat. This seminar aims to give an opportunity to the textile technologists & experts to share their thoughts to meet the challenges which will be highly productive and beneficial.
Technical textiles provide new growth opportunities to the Indian textile industry to have long term sustainable future. Indian market of technical textiles during FY 2019-20 was over $ 19 billion (Rs 1.45 lakh crore) with an average growth rate (CAGR) of 12%. While global market size of technical textile was around $ 256 billion in 2019 and average growth rate (CAGR) is 4%. The strategic development in a knowledge-based industry, like technical textiles, will need access to a range of speciality raw materials, indigenous machinery manufacturing with latest technology and focus on cutting edge R&D with skilled man-power, which are still lacking in India. The dependence can eventually be reduced by further investing in these areas.
The Indian textile industry is currently very much excited towards diversification and new investments in technical textile projects due to various reasons, some of them are attractive government schemes like PLI, NTTM, ATUFS, MITRA mega park development and other incentives. In addition to domestic market growth, India can grab the major opportunities in the global technical textile market, reaching out to different application domains like, health care, defense, construction, agriculture, sports, composites, environment, smart technologies and many more. The deliberations in this seminar of TAI, Mumbai Unit will show the future trend to do more towards new arenas of research, innovation, market development and investments in technical textile business.
