Over the last couple of years, India has been growing at a steady pace in the Technical Textile field, with perceptible signs of growth being observed in a few specialised fields. The working group on technical textiles for 12th Five Year Plan (FYP) has projected the market size to Rs. 1.58 lakh crore for the year 2016-17, with a growth rate of 20% during the 12th FYP. Application areas and developments in technical textiles sector aren’t slowing down. The market is advancing as new technologies emerge. At 25 focused subjects of discussions with industry experts, Techtextil India symposium will represent the entire cross-section and stakeholders of the industry at a common platform as they look to share their knowledge about the global trends and developments, market potential, opportunities and future prospects in the Indian technical textiles industry.
Six specialised tracks ranging from emerging new technologies for advanced technical textiles to future prospects of the technical textile industry; to growing market for active-wear/performance-wear and from the right time for investment in medtech & hygiene sectors, and high performance applications of nonwovens as well as the growing sectors of protech and composites will be covered over the two-days. With the Indian government actively working towards accelerating technical textiles usage for both institutional & industry buying, Techtextil India symposium’s business-oriented approach will prove highly valuable for machinery and end product manufacturers, raw material and fabric suppliers, and textile industry players.
