Taiwanese fabrics entice Indian apparel producers

At a trade fair organised for Taiwanese textile manufacturers, these producers have brought along with them a varied range of textile materials like functional fabrics, no-need-to-wash denims and many other speciality fabrics.

Christened the 'Taiwan Textile Fairs in India 2009', Tirupur is the first stop after which they move to Bangalore and Delhi. The fair has been organised by the Taiwan Textile Federation, Bureau of Foreign Trade, Taiwan, Worldex Group with support from TEA, AEPC and the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry.

Within the functional fabrics range, the Taiwanese are displaying fabrics which have anti-perspiring and fire-resistant properties, alongside which there are high quality performance fabrics which can be used to produce lingerie, swimwear and sportswear.

One Taiwanese company has unveiled a germanium fabric material which will help improve blood circulation and accelerate metabolism when doing yogic exercises. This fair is being organised particularly to increase sales of Taiwanese fabrics in India which are on a downhill since the last few years.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Sakhtivel, President of Tirupur Exporters Association said that, Taiwan was the best place to source manmade fabrics and his company was initially looking to import fabrics and later sourcing the technology and manufacture here through a JV.

He added by saying that exports of cotton knitwear clothing has reached a saturation point and the apparel exporters need to diversify their range by looking towards manmade fibres to increase the export potential from the country.

Seconding the opinion of Mr Sakhtivel, Senior Director of the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) Mr Reddy said that cotton clothing accounted for only 20 percent of the global apparel market, with manmade fibre taking up the rest.

We can cater to the requirements of the American and European markets throughout the year, if we increase proportion of apparels manufactured from manmade fibres and can also double our apparel exports by January 2013, Mr Sakhtivel said.
