GTTES to provide SMEs a platform to showcase textile machineries

The first Global Textile Technology and Engineering Show 2015 (GTTES) to be held from January 20-22, 2015 in Mumbai will provide a platform to small and medium textile machinery, equipment and component manufacturers to showcase their products.

 

India ITME Society, the host of the very successful India-ITME Exhibition which is held every four years, now plans to host GTTES every four years, alternately with India-ITME Exhibition.   

 

Sanjiv Lathia, Chairman, India ITME Society says, “GTTES is a fair with a focus on Asia and also provide a platform to SMEs who might not be able to afford to participate in India-ITME Exhibition. We also plan to take GTTES to other Indian textile hubs in the future.”

 

Seema Srivastava, Executive Director, India ITME Society adds, “India has strengths in spinning technology, but not so in other segments of the textile value-chain. To address the same, GTTES will have a focus on those segments like, weaving, garmenting and also technical textiles”.

 

GTTES has already been able to get confirmations from manufacturers in China, Japan, Taiwan and Korea and has positive enquiries from Vietnam and Indonesia, reveals Srivastava.

 

When asked to comment on the current status of the Indian textile machinery sector, Prakash Bhagwati, Vice Chairman, India-ITME Society informs, “Investments in the textile industry have been put on hold, as investors are waiting for the outcome of the elections after which the policy picture will be clearer”.

 

Informing about the gap in Indian textile technology vis-à-vis foreign technology, Bhagwati enlightens by saying, “We have technology gaps in weaving and garmenting sector, however when considering ginning and spinning, Indian technology is at par with foreign technology, while in fabric processing there may be some gaps in certain areas only”.

 

He adds, “And to address the gaps in weaving technology, the Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association (TMMA) has set up a consortium of TMMA members which will design and develop a weaving machine which will be at par with the latest technology available abroad”.

 

Speaking about the scope of manufacturing machinery for the non-wovens and technical textiles industry, Lathia says, “There is a wonderful scope for producing these machineries, however the usage of technical textile and non-woven products has to grow to a size and scale, which makes production of these machineries viable in India”.
