Considering the inherent strength of the Indian technical textile industry India is expected to emerge as a key player in the global technical textile arena in the future. The Government of India has been incentivizing technical textile industry through Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) and Technology Mission on Technical Textiles (TMTT). 

Recognizing the importance of the technical textile industry to the holistic growth of the Indian economy, the state government of Gujarat has also been giving this industry a major thrust, providing special focus in its recently released textile policy.
