Mumbai hosts technical textiles event Techtextil


Techtextil was held in Mumbai, November 25 to 27, 2021. This is a trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens and was one of the first major business events in India for the technical textile sector since the pandemic. The aim was to present a strong showcase of technical textile technologies crucial for the development of India across industries such as healthcare, agriculture, construction, infrastructure, sports, apparel etc.

Covering the most demanding application areas, the trade fair attracted buyers from the fields of agriculture, automotives, building, clothing and protective clothing, environmental protection, geo-technology, housing and home, medical science, packaging and sports, among others. The three-day business event included a series of digital symposiums to present a global outlook on technical textile trends, the current industry debate on sustainability and digitalisation as well as opportunities for Indian technical textile players in the global arena.

Leading technical textile players from Tamil Nadu and across the nation participated in the business event. There are several inherent advantages for the growth of technical textiles in Tamil Nadu. Since raw materials used in the production of sanitary products, artificial ligaments, seat belt webbings and airbags are still heavily imported, the Techtextil India Forum was seen as a way of reducing import dependency and bringing investments in R&D, manufacturing by partnering with global technical textile companies. The Indian market for technical textiles is growing at a CAGR of 12 per cent, three times faster than the global growth rate, indicating strong export opportunities.
