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.

Indian technical textile industry proves to be a sunrise sector. Analysts from the Government of India sponsored study by ICRA Management Consultancy predict the growth of this sector in double digits. Opportunities exist in the fields of fabric development, and their conversion into applicable products. In this harsh economy, it is not possible to invest millions of dollars in these technologies.

For instance, MANTRA a part of centrally funded Center for Agrotextiles can be helpful in reaching entrepreneurs and training them in processes that are at their disposal, and multiple applications such as coated textiles for defense, antimicrobial treated bed liners for hospital applications etc.
