To address the importance of the technical textile segment in India, Tantu is organising a seminar on ‘Technical Textiles: The Next Big Opportunity’ on September 25, 2016 in New Delhi. The panelists will focus on Meditech (medical textiles) and Protech (protective textiles) sectors and will discuss the challenges and their solutions for these sectors.

The seminar, the fourth to be organised by Tantu, is expected to bring manufacturers, raw material suppliers and researchers from the textile industry on a common platform to discuss the various prospects in technical textiles. A list of esteemed panelists will carry out sessions to discuss Meditech products meant for hygiene, health and personal care, as well as products for safety and protection that fall under the Protech sector.

“Although mass interest in active sports and outdoor leisure activities has led to immense growth in the sporttech sector, the market size for same is likely to reach $140 million in 2018-19. Another manufactured technical textile category with tremendous potential from defense as well as corporate sector, Protech is no better either and scheduled to reach $79 million in 2018-19. This abysmal state of affairs surely requires effort from all stakeholders to come and discuss in a forum like this,” said Dr. Prabir Jana, president, Tantu.

Tantu is a group of core professionals formed by alumni of two of the oldest textile colleges of India from Bengal and serving the textile and allied industries. The professionals have come together on a common platform with the objective to serve the industry in a well-structured manner, enabling the textile Industry to accrue optimum benefit from the services of professionals to sustain in the competitive market.

Technical textile is a growing industry and the market for its products is estimated to grow from $9.43 billion to $23.66 billion.

Germany based solution providers in technical textile space, Freudenberg Performance Materials, Mann+Hummel and Oerlinkon, have also lent their support to the seminar. (KD)
