Technical textile sector to be main focus of VGGIS 2011

Technical textile sector is to remain the main focus of Gujarat Government in its forthcoming Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit (VGGIS) 2011.

The State Government jointly organized a seminar on technical textiles in association with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), and was aided by the Industrial Extension Bureau (iNDEXTb), Ahmedabad Textile Industries Research Association (ATIRA) and Man Made Textile Research Association (MANTRA).

The seminar was aimed at uniting the concerned government agencies, private sector stakeholders and consultants from outside and advisors to contemplate over the present status of the Technical Textile sector in Gujarat, and to review its growth and investment prospects for future.

Saurabh Patel, Gujarat Government's Minister of State for Industries, while speaking at the seminar stated that, technical textiles would remain to be the main focus of the government during the Summit, and that is the reason that they have organized this seminar, which is first of the series of seminars on technical textiles to come ahead. Various topics like geo-textiles and geogrid in India would be extensively discussed at the seminar. India is the perfect place for spunlaid non-wovens, he said.

As the potential of the technical textiles in India still remains unexploited, thus they are promising areas for investment. Technical textiles are a multidisciplinary area with a number of consumer applications. Also, though slowly but the production of various technical textile items is growing at a steady pace, in India. Further, the country's technical textile industry is seen to grow between $12-15 billon by 2012, representing 12 percent of the global worth. In addition, the country's overall consumption of technical and nonwoven textiles too is believed to record an additional growth of 150 percent in 2012, in line with the GDP growth of the country. In the current state of affairs, technical textiles are recognized as a significantly budding field for promotion of the Indian textile industry.

A number of speakers from Indian as well as foreign companies including Gherzi Eastern Ltd, DuPont, Lenzing Fibres and Arvind Mills, participated in the seminar to deliberate on the development and future prospects of the technical textiles.
