Next we asked him to as to how he foresees the potential for business in the Indian apparel sector, to which he said, "Fabric is the biggest single cost factor in apparel manufacturing process. By optimizing the fabric utilization, the company will gain in reducing the cost of the garment. By investing in Lectra products, apparel manufacturer will benefit by considerable optimization in fabric consumption”.
