Cairo Fashion and Tex is on from March 8 to 10, 2018. Around 23 of Indian textile companies are showcasing a wide range of Indian yarn and fabric products. Six of them are repeat companies. The products on display include a cross section of Indian yarn and fabric products, including denim.
Indian companies are using this exhibition as a platform to meet textile entrepreneurs and understand the recent development in the Egyptian textile sector. Entrepreneurs will benefit from first-hand knowledge of the evolving market conditions and domestic textile industry enabling them to identify areas of mutual cooperation.
Textile products have played an important role in the growth of Indo-Egyptian bilateral trade. Egypt is a significant market in North Africa for Indian exports. India is the world’s second largest producer of synthetic fiber and yarn, cotton, cellulosic fiber and silk. India exported textile and clothing products worth around 342 million dollars to Egypt in 2017. Cotton yarn was the dominant product in the export basket, followed by manmade yarn fabrics and cotton fabrics.
Indian cotton yarn is increasingly being recognised in Egypt but there are also opportunities for some other fabrics Indian producers offer. The Indian textile industry is modern, vibrant and many manufacturers have set up state of the art processing houses to roll out large volumes of high quality products.
