Due to this, the industry is suffering from technological obsolescence and sub-sectors need up-to-date machinery for production of fabric, yarn, and ready-made garments.

India has taken several steps to boost the industrial growth in the textile sector.

They have not only provided much required fillip for igniting growth but also have leveraged the growth of textile engineering industry which includes manufacture of complete machinery, accessories and parts.

Though the machinery industry is growing in a reasonable speed, some of the sector specific machines still have not been able to match the quality and productivity standards of the world-class machines.
