Techtextil India to attract industry giants from all over


India’s technical textile and nonwoven industry continues to be one of the fastest growing sectors within the textile industry. Now in its sixth edition, Techtextil India, which continues to bring forward the latest technology in technical textile, nonwoven and garment machinery, is scheduled to be held during September 13-15 at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre.

At Techtextil India, international contingents from countries like Germany, China, Korea, Switzerland, Italy and Belarus, amongst others, will be showcasing the latest trends and technologies in this sector. The show size, being increased by 50 per cent since the last edition, will have space dedicated to 10 product groups and 12 application areas of Agrotech, Buildtech, Clothtech, Geotech, Hometech, Indutech, Medtech, Mobiltech, Oekotech, Packtech, Protech and Sporttech. Some of the big players like Reliance Industries, Welspun. Groz Beckert, Garware Wall Ropes, Khosla Profil, Luwa India, Lenzing AG, Archroma and CHT India, will have their latest innovations spread across the exhibition space.

According to recent studies, the nonwoven sector has emerged one of the most preferred areas for investment in India. The technical textile industry also has about nine per cent of the world’s total consumption manufactured in India. With a progressive market behaviour like this, the buyer-seller meet organised by Techtextil India between the exhibitors and potential buyers can prove to be extremely beneficial in the overall development of the sector as it helps in building new contacts and understanding individual business needs.

Apart from pre-arranged buyer-seller meets, Techtextil India also conducts a symposium which is a premier forum for the technical textiles and nonwoven industry, attracting top-level speakers and highly qualified professionals across the industry. The conference brings together participants representing the entire cross-section and all stake-holders of the industry at a common platform to learn about the market outlook, trends, developments, opportunities and challenges in the industry and also network with the industry experts.

Another important feature is the launch of the Texpcess Pavilion. Texpocess as a brand has been a leading trade fair for international garment manufacturing and textile processing industry. With India’s contribution in the technical textile industry expected to grow at 12 per cent CAGR and reach Rs. 1,16,217 crores by 2017-18, the need for new technologies in garment manufacturing machinery is on the rise. Manufacturing technical textiles demands specific raw materials, machinery and equipment that are not readily available in India, and importing those materials is expensive.

The launch of the Texprocess Pavilion will provide all the garment machinery manufacturers a great platform to display their innovations and build a new and strong client base while at the same time allow the Indian market to see how these solutions can help expand their existing capabilities.

Covering the entire value chain and displaying the latest technology in technical textiles, nonwoven and garment manufacturing machinery, Techtextil India and the Texprocess Pavilion together will aim to be a reliable platform for business and sourcing.
