Textiles Committee releases census of textile engineering sector

The Census of Textile Engineering Industry (TEI) Units has been initiated by Textiles Committee mainly to fill up the data gap required for policy decision pertaining to textile machinery industry in India.

The absence of data on the machinery sector is an impediment in policy decision-making and its growth plans. The TEI produces virtually the entire range of textile machinery for cotton, blended and manmade fibre textiles. The major share of global production of textile machinery is concentrated in the developed countries like Germany, Switzerland, Italy, USA, Japan and the UK. Competition from high tech machinery of European and South-East Asian countries is a real challenge to the very existence of this industry.

The TEI in India is fully capable of serving the domestic textile industry and well as exports. The entire range of equipments required for forming lint and manmade fibres upto finished fabrics are produced in India. Side by side, the ancillary and textile testing and monitoring equipment sectors too developed appreciably.

The main objective of the paper is to delineate the present status of the textile engineering industry in India and then to compare its position vis--vis the global exports of textile machinery. Two sections are exclusively devoted; the first on the textile engineering industry status and the second the position of the industry in global trade.

This census is a maiden attempt and is unique in its structure and coverage. A total number of 1446 units are identified in 13 states and 2 union territories covering all sectors of manufacturing. This census not only throws light on the size, structure and spread of the industry, it also encapsulates the production, capacity, investments and manpower of the sector. The global trade vis-à-vis Indian exports in the textile machinery segment, is also discussed in the report.
