The technical textiles industry has immense potential in the developing countries. Asia is now emerging as a powerhouse of both production as well as end-use consumption of technical textiles. Developing countries like India has great potential to make an impact in this industry. The demand for technical textiles will be boosted by the changing economic scenario in developing countries. India can emerge as a key player in the technical textile industry. The consumption of technical textiles has enormous benefits of cost saving and also social benefits to population at large. India has huge domestic market potential of technical textiles by institutional buyers like MoRTH, Defence, Security, Space & Marine etc. and also has huge export potential.

Sensing the potential of technical textiles, Govt. of India has taken many steps for encouraging investment of technical textiles like Scheme for Growth and Development of Technical Textiles (SGDTT), Technology Mission on Technical Textiles and Scheme for Promoting the Usage of Agrotextiles in NER, Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme etc.

The event aims to provide an opportunity to the Indian Technical Textile Industry to network and interact with stakeholders on several technical and policy issues.

Technotex 2014 conference will focus on chalking out a road map for increasing the consumption and production of the technical textiles. It will also strengthen the association of private industry with institutional buyer such as CISF, Railways, Army, NHAI, Navy, BRO etc and help them understanding institution’s requirements and standards. The conference will also discuss various strategies for promoting investment in technical textile sector and also deliberate on various policy & incentives given by states as well as central governments to strengthen this sector.
