To expedite the process of developing standards for the technical textiles sector, eight committees have been formed at the Centre of Excellences in India to help identify the areas in which standards needed to be formulated, said Textiles Secretary Anant Kumar Singh.
“The market of technical textiles is expanding rapidly with new products being added by the users in various industries. Thus it is imperative to formulate standards to accelerate the growth of the textiles sector,” Singh said inaugurating the third edition of ‘National conclave on standards on technical textiles’ organised jointly by the Ministry of Textiles, Bureau of India Standards (BIS) and FICCI on Thursday.
India has the capability, resource and market in the area of technical textiles and the need was to capitalise on these strengths, according to an official release.
It is imperative for the stakeholders, including industry, policy makers and research institutes to work in close collaboration and also suggest ways to make the process of developing standards for technical textiles faster, Singh added. The eight committees will also include industry representatives.
The Secretary pointed out that the market of technical textiles was expanding rapidly with new products being added by the users in various industries. However, the share of technical textiles in the domestic textile sector as well as at the global level was very low as compared to developed countries and this needed to be addressed.
The government will also launch the new mission for technical textiles soon as the earlier mission has completed its period, Singh added.
The conclave, since its inception, has been instrumental in bringing together institutional buyers in various segments along with industry to discuss the standards that needed to be formulated by BIS on priority, the release said.
