The technical textile industry in India has the potential to grow at a rate of 15-20 % annually to touch $30 billion over the next five years.
“There have been sporadic investments to manufacture in artificial leather, hygiene textiles, medical textiles and geotextiles, etc. However, India may need to accelerate investments quickly to encash the opportunities, as otherwise it would be taken over by other competing countries,” said C Kamatchisundaram, vp-textile machinery division, Voltas, in an interview to Fibre2Fashion.
