Fourth ITMA ASIA + CITME combined exhibition gears up to affirm its position as leading global platform for textile and garment machinery.
Global textile majors are wooing Indian textile mills to upgrade their technologies and make new investments in machinery. With India’s annual textile production expected to reach $ 220 billion by 2020 from the current level of $ 90 billion, major investments are expected to be made in India.
India’s textile industry contributes about 14 per cent to industrial production; 4 per cent to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP); 17 per cent to its export earnings; and is a source of direct employment for over 35 million people, which makes it the second largest provider of employment after agriculture.
Indian Government has made ambitious plans for textile sector in the 12th five year plan. Central Schemes such as Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP) and Comprehensive Powerloom Cluster Development Scheme (CPCDS) along with encouraging State Investment policies are expected to boost the sector.
