India marks numerical superiority in Heimtextil fair

India dominated the four-day Heimtextil fair, the world's largest fair for home textiles and furnishing products held in Frankfurt, Germany.

Amid several uncertainties that the global home-textile industry is facing along with demand plunge and high unemployment in many traditional markets, India marked its numerical superiority at Frankfurt fair by presenting the world's biggest exhibitor contingent.

A record number of 385 exhibitors took part in the fair from India, which for the first time, even surpassed the figure of 381 exhibitors from the host country, Germany that has presented the largest contingent of exhibitors for decades, followed by 380 exhibitors from China. However, a few German experts predict that, China could beat India in the number of exhibitors in future events.

Indian consul general in Frankfurt, Mr. Ajit Kumar cited India's staging in the Frankfurt fair as a signal of its headway in the textile industry. Germany is an apex trading partner of India in the European Union. India's overall trade with Germany in the year 2008 amounted to 13.4 billion euros, he added.

Textile exports from India to Germany accounted for 24 percent of its overall shipments to Germany. Its textile exports to Germany include products such as man-made fibres, wool, raw and processed cotton, raw silk and silk yarn.

The exhibitor companies anticipate improved business in 2010 compared to 2009, following the response they witnessed in Frankfurt fair.

Textile commissioner in Orissa's department of textile and handloom, Ms. Arti Ahuja informed that the kiosks, displaying Orissa's hand-woven items, received good number of visitors and serious business enquiries. Orissa Minister for Textiles and Handicrafts, Ms. Anjali Behera also visited the show to promote textile items of the state.
