As far as the technical textile industry is concerned, it is fortunate enough to have an edge over other sectors as it includes the manufacture of indispensible items used in our day-to-day life such as medical textiles, hygiene products such as diapers etc. This provides an opportunity for textile industry to opt for diversification even in the current economic scenario.
