India’s technical textiles and nonwovens industry continues to be one of the fastest growing sectors within the textile industry. Now in its sixth edition, Techtextil India continues to bring forward the latest technology in technical textiles, nonwovens and garment machinery and is scheduled to take place from 13-15 September 2017 at Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Bookings for Techtextil India have already intensified and international contingents from countries like Germany, China, Korea, Switzerland, Italy, Belarus, amongst others will be showcasing the latest trends and technologies in this sector.

The show size increased by 50% since the last edition and will have space dedicated to 10 product groups and 12 application areas. Some of the big industry players like Reliance Industry, Welspun. Groz Beckert, Garware Wall Ropes, Khosla Profil, Luwa India, Lenzing AG, Archroma, and CHT India, will have their latest innovations spread across the exhibition space covering these application areas.

Nonwovens sector

According to recent studies, the nonwoven sector has emerged to be one of the most preferred areas for investment in India. The technical textile industry also has about 9% of the world’s total consumption manufactured in India.

With a progressive market behaviour like this, the buyer-seller meet organised by Techtextil India, between the exhibitors and potential buyers, can prove to be extremely beneficial in the overall development of the sector as it helps in building new contacts and understanding individual business needs.


Apart from pre-arranged buyer-seller meets, Techtextil India also conducts a symposium which is a premier forum for the technical textiles and the nonwovens industry attracting top level speakers and highly qualified professionals across the industry.

The conference brings together participants representing the entire cross-section and all stake-holders of the industry at a common platform to learn about the market outlook, trends, developments, opportunities and challenges in the industry and also network with the industry experts.

Some topics that would be highlighted during this event are: Protective Agrotextiles – Advantages and Future Prospects, Textiles in Aerospace Applications, Fibre Innovations for Functional and Value-Added Nonwovens, amongst others.

Texpcess Pavilion

Another important feature is the launch of Texpcess Pavilion. Texpocess as a brand has been a leading trade fair for international garment manufacturing and textile processing industry. With India’s contribution in the technical textiles industry expected to grow at 12% CAGR and reach 1,16,217 crore by 2017-18, the need for new technologies in garment manufacturing machinery is on a rise.

Manufacturing technical textiles demands specific raw materials, machinery and equipment that are not readily available in India and importing those materials are expensive. The launch of Texprocess Pavilion will provide all the garment machinery manufacturers a great platform to display their innovations and build a new and strong client base while at the same time allow Indian market to see how these solutions can help expand their existing capabilities.
