       Technical textile or Unconventional textiles or Functional textiles whichever name you say, this textiles are highly technical& non- technical ie. Non Wovens. Both segments developing slowly in India not only for domestic use but also for international consumption too. We always here in textile conference / seminar, technical textile on growth stage in India. But industry is confused about where is the market in India?? Industry experts have divided segment by 12 ways depending on the Usage and Application. There are 2 extremely opposite segments are considered in technical textile, still we consider as one textile. One, Non woven is now becoming alternative to disposable paper, its “use and throw fabricâ€?. This concept is quite new in India, with the traditional mindset, religious belief, diverse culture makes hindrance of use & throw fabric. Non woven currently widely use in FMCG, Medical, packaging, fashion accessories, hotel, many more. Manufacturing of Nonwoven is simple, fast, quantity oriented. Generally Cot              

absorbency, air permeable quality. This segments manufacturing done by top international brand ( Kimberly-Clark, etc) who brand their products internationally. Other segment are Indian company who have non brand / local brand which sells and marketed only in India. This segment in India havefairly done good in last decades, but now due to globalisa           

 

          

  

Other technical textile area are highly technical, spec              for Aircraft, automobiles, construction, Geology many other

area where strength and longitivity of fabric is the most essential. Manufacturing of this fabrics are complex, spec/ detail oriented, quality oriented. Manufacturer are mostly present in developed country where there is a good research facility available. Indian manufacture are making and supplying to developed country. Generally polyester, nylon, other         !    

Though government appointed COE (Center of Excel  "            

   !                same. No research report given to media. Skill labour for this technical fabric knowledge is rare in India. No course is developed for this segment as yet, so senior position in the industry only knows the technology of highly technical fabric. So there is lot of gap, in skill area. Technical textile market in India is peanuts, as compare to international market. In developed country in world they already using this fabrics from decades, they understand the importance of this fabric as compare to conventional fabrics. Consumers in developed country have awareness and use the fabrics in their daily life. Geo textiles which is used for construction, road levelling, many more functional areas. In developed country like EU its mandatory to use Geo textile in road building. Technical textile, be it any application / use, if consumer awareness will increase, market of this segment will increase automatically in India. We as industry need to unite together and make a awareness campaign for this segment‌!!! Wish you happy reading & happy business..!!!

   Technical Textile – Future of Indian Textile Industry!

Shri Avinash Mayekar MD Suvin Advisor Pvt. Ltd.

Introduction “Make in Indiaâ€? is one of the most appreciable initiatives taken by our respected PM “NarendraModiâ€? to fuel growth of Indian manufacturing sector. Textile Industry is one of the core segments of Indian Manufacturing Industry contributing 14% of total industrial output & employing about 45 Million populations directly.Though Textile Industry has its huge contribution in terms of export earnings, industrial output & employment generation when it comes to investment initiatives, Indian entrepreneurs are turning back to the sector. So let’s analyze why most of Indian entrepreneurs are turning back towards the sector which has presence in country since ancient times.

Add to this, the factors conducive for the growth of manufacturing and consumption of technical textiles are also available within the country. Though In   ~

As Technical Textile products are highly engineered products            

   

they are higher value products, so they fetch higher returns to man        [ Z   ing paradigm shift towards westernization, so the new generation entrepreneurs should think of untapped market segments. As we are moving towards globalization, our needs and market demands are changing and I am sure the products like wet wipes, disposable home textiles, travel kits, air bags, high end sports textiles and disposable products like medical textiles will be products of daily consumption in near future. Z   {%~            

diapers or wipes, were hardly used by mass population. But today,

these products are reached to rural parts of India. So time has come to change our mindset from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Conventional Textilesâ&#x20AC;? to high value â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technical Textilesâ&#x20AC;? as investment options. Investors need to direct themselves from basics to high engineered niche products. Major chunk of Technical Textiles are manufactured by Non-woven technologies. These are compact technologies and give much higher production and are emerging technologies to produce complex products as well. As the process is very short, the utility consumption is much lower and due to huge production, the operating costs are minimal. Moreover, there is hardly any involvement of human beings and hence quality is determined by technology and very less chance for     Z Z  {~}  [  [

usage in the world. So India still has long way to go to meet global requirements of nonwovens.

Positioning India Time has come to position India as manufacturing hub for Tech [   Â?[[" Z  

         

we need to understand Technical Textiles thoroughly. We need to create awareness amongst each verticals of Textiles industry. Government is been taking initiatives to promote TT among the value              Â&#x2039;  

step into positioning India as TT hub is to carve out clear vision, strategy & action plan for TT. We need to map out existing TT de !   

     {~ [[      tic as well as global market. Once demand assessment is done; we need to analyze our current potentials in terms of raw materials, infrastructure, technology level & human resource. The demandsupply analysis will give us clear picture of enormous opportunities available in the TT segment & we can frame out our vision for Technical Textile segment. The assessment of additional raw material, infrastructure, technology level & skill development required to match the global & domestic demand & make India as leading global player. Each & every state of India can be mapped out for type, quality !        !    }

                 Â&#x2022;            

additional investments required & level of infrastructure to be development. Hereafter role of government will be to introduce various schemes & policies favorable for the investment in TT sector. This will create conducive environment amongst the investors.e.g. Capital subsidies & interest subsidies to the investors into Technical Textile sector. As Technical Textile is high engineered product, it requires high skilled labor trained with international skills and standards. It is necessary to check whether existing educational programs are capable to create such high skilled human resource. Educational seminars & training programs can help to create good human resources. In            

and have experience in training to textile experts as well as labors. Such kind of training programs can develop a good skilled workforce. Government can support such skill development programs & training centers for growth of TT segment.

Technology advancement plays crucial role for growth TT segment e.g. if our vision is to double market share in next 5 years, but we do not have state-of-the art technology to produce international standard goods, then we can never achieve our vision. In [  [             =

the obsolete machineries, we cannot achieve desired norms & standards of products competitive to international standards. We have to update ourselves with the latest state-of-the are technology. Government has launched TUFS scheme to support technology development which is an appreciable initiative. However, it   Â&#x2013;           

chain. More such Government schemes are needed to bring about technology advancement. Last but not the least is government policy framework. Government policies should be in tune with our vision. Various central & state government schemes can help to boost investment in TT sec Â&#x2014;           !  

subsidies should be given to promote TT sector. Subsidies on machineries of Technical Textiles will be helpful. Similar to Textile Park concept, Technical Textile Park can stimulate positive environment for the growth of TT sector. [       Z

Today, automations for the textile processing are indispensable for an economical production. In this case, eurolaser applies the Conveyor System for roll material. By using this automatic material feed, textiles can be fed for laser cutting directly from the roll and routed after laser cutting directly to a table extension. With a high degree of connecting accuracy after a material feed cycle, sections, which for all practical purposes are endless, can be produced. The bale material is fed via an automatic feeding unit. A feeding system edge controller ensures precise positioning of the material. Further, there is even an option to add a winding unit to the Conveyor System. This is used for the even winding of previously processed textiles and this accordingly results in a completely automated cutting process.

A special table concept is used for textile machining. This comprises a stainless steel wire mesh and is particularly suitable for thin  `    Â&#x2022;           rial support for the machining process and, on the other hand, the transport element for the Conveyor System. Â&#x2DC;

   A STITCH IN TIME

Shri Vishnu Govind Independent Brand Consultant Business Director - Thinkkloud

Impatience is seen as avirtue; willingness to wait is interpreted as lack of aggression. We are in the era of instant food, home delivery of groceries and internet on the go. Readymade clothing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem fresh enough a phenomenon to rub shoulders with some of the path-breaking consumer trends we see around. If we       Â&#x203A;

Fabric to Readymade With time things changed; yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s luxury is todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s want and tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessity. Today if we like a garment on a retail window at a mall, or on your mobile screen, you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to `     

 

 

       = need everythingreadymade! There are businesses that are based on a core competency in fabric retailing; they have been facing the heat of a declining market trend in recent times. It is the readymade apparel brands that are riding the wave now, the ones that come with a fashion competency. The apparel brands need fabrics as raw materials, which they source from the fabric players and this drives Â&#x2014;~Â&#x2014;

[               could react to a market shift. The solution often does not lie in a single step, the issue is something that would need to be countered throughmultiple approaches. While we could always talk with the wisdom of hindsight after a certain period of time, the key here is to act in time and take pre-emptive measures. Let us look at some of the challenges that a traditional business encounters when faced with a shifting market trend. Â&#x2022; Â                this is easier said than done. Past performance is not a guarantee 

          =    sumed in our own strengths that we forget that the customer will buy only what he wants, and not exactly what we would like him to buy. We have even seen people who blame the customer for not appreciating the unique features they put into the product. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not forget that if the customer does not understand our features, the loss is ours, not his, for he has lot many options. In recent times,  Â             Â&#x;_  consumer marketing. The problem, however, in many cases, is the fact that the focus takes quite a while to manifest itself as actions. The more successful we are in a certain context, the more dif                changes. The same attributes, which have helped build your business, like culture, history, skills and other such aspects,could be-

come impediments to change. A readymade business cannot be run the way a fabric business is run. Therefore, structural changes also often come into play when there is a strategic shift. There are fully integrated textile business conglomerates that have successfully bound togetherthe businesses of fabrics, fashion, retail and garment manufacturing. This is something that comes with years of            

     all with an eye on the ever-evolving customer tastes.

Pros and Cons While we are in the context of fashion, let me refer to OTC fabrics as textile and readymade garments as apparel, as has become some kind of an industry-accepted practice. Why did the market swing the apparel way? A few reasons for this could be resting in      Â&#x2DC;       

    =           

  diately. Readymade clothing comes with brand-approved styling; in fact the whole brand play becomes a potent force in the readymade space- it becomes a stamp of approval and a representation of who you are. Readymade businesses lend well to post-garment              in unique hand feel, stylized featureslike puckered looks in casual   

   Â&#x2030;               On the contrary, the textile supporters also have their arguments. The biggest among them, of course, is the scope of getting           =         

exactly the same measurements that we are comfortable with; this is an advantage over readymade garments that come in standard  %   Â&#x2013; 

             [                 sleeve length, waist size, collar type etc. exactly as per your needs. Therefore, every custom-tailored garment is unique!

Flowing with the trend Well, let us accept that there is no major debate on the issue   

       Â&#x2013;     

 sales at desired levels. How do some of the business conglomerates that come with a fabric legacy, counter the declining market trend? There are two aspects to this. First is the possibility of extending the fabric brand into the readymade space. It is a logical thing to do and makes sense from the point of view of marketing theories. The challenges that the organization could face will be at      i) The brand imagery in the consumerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind will be in line with that of a fabric brand. This could normally mean a few things;                 well with planned purchases, like a wedding in the family, for in Z          Â&#x2013; 

    pulse buying. The other aspect here is the fact that the brand may not score well on contemporariness as an attribute because of the absence of stylized garments as would be available in a readymade

collection. ii) The second issue that I would highlight here is less about the consumer psyche and more about matters intrinsic to the organization. The core competencies, business practices, cost structures and other cultural aspects do not go well with the requirements of a readymade business. This transition is as much a challenge as the issues concerning market perception of the products.

keep working on the category and prolong the inevitable decline. Attempts ought to be made to see how OTC fabrics can cater to the evolving consumer preferences of today. Let us take a look at what are some of the steps that could be taken in this regard. Play to your strengths; as much as it sounds like a clichĂŠ, it is a statement that you got to agree with. Fabric brands should tap into

            [ 



today could see advantages of fabrics that have special features, like if they are stretchable, or has heat management properties, or can absorb moisture, just to name a few characteristics for illustrative purposes. With the advent of readymade clothing, consumers now are habituated to seeing how they look in the clothes before they make      [      Â&#x2014;~Â&#x2018;    

need to overcome. Use of catalogues help these brands in showing how a tailored garment could look on a consumer; then again, for practical reasons, cataloguing and photography can showcase

only a small fraction of the collection. Having said that, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make no mistake about realizing the fact that catalogues serve a big purpose here. They help to showcase the latest from the brand, both in terms of new fabrics as well as new styles that can be tailored, as sort of a recommendation from the brand. Can technology be used to showcase fabric collections? For sure the catalogue can be shown using a tablet or other electronic       =

Tailoring is integral to OTC fabric businesses. It must be said that even in evolved fashion markets, there is still a huge premium

   Â&#x2014;~Â&#x2018; Â&#x2DC;ric businesses could be supported by improvements in tailoring as    '  '           

while the exact nature of service might vary slightly from one brand to the other, what is interesting here is the fact that you could get      Â

Change is the only thing constant; market evolution is a continuous process. If you are a category leader in a space where growths are stagnating because of changing market trends, then it is your job to take up the cause of your category, for there is a lot at stake for you! Â&#x2030;

Thermal comfort of a clothing system is associated with the thermal balance of the body and its thermoregulatory responses to the dynamic interactions with the clothing and the environment. It is necessary to design fabrics with necessary thermal properties for      Z         

moisture and heat through the clothing system take place in steady state, but is continuously exposed to transients in physical activity and environmental conditions [11].

Introduction

Need of thermal comfort

Clothing is an integral part of human life. The primary role of clothing is to form a layer/s of barriers that protects the body against unsuitable physical environments. This protection of body  

    

   ronment to the body, which is essential for its survival and preventing the body from being injured by abrasion, radiation, wind, electricity, chemical and microbiological substances. These traditionally               

important role at the interface between human body and its surrounding environment in determining the subjective perception of comfort status of wearer.[1]

Human body tries to maintain a constant core temperature   Â&#x201E;Â&#x2020; Â&#x2C6; Â&#x2018; [           

from person to person but it is always in a narrow range. The comfortable surrounding environment temperature for human body in Z  ~{ Â&#x2018; =       

      

discomfort as a result human body needs some external agency to maintain this temperature and clothing is one of the most common devices to provide comfort in this regard. The body must be kept in thermal balance in order to maintain the required comfort level; the metabolic heat generated together with the heat received from external sources must be matched by the loss from the body of an equivalent amount of heat. If the heat gain and the heat loss are not in balance then the body temperature will either rise or fall, leading to a serious threat to life [3].

Clothing has a number of functions like adornment, status, modesty & protection. To be competitive, modern clothing besides having good mechanical and technological properties and being of easy care, must possess good comfort characteristics. Comfort has totally replaced the durability as far as the selection of garment is concerned [1]. _Q6  *$  7" Z#   The comfort is considered as a fundamental property when a textile product is valued. The comfort characteristics of fabrics mainly depend on the structure, type of row material used, weight, moisture absorption, heat transmission and skin perception.[11] The clothing system which is suitable for one climate may not be suitable for another climate. For example, good thermal insulation properties are needed for clothing which is to be worn in cold climates. The thermal insulation of textiles depends on number of

fabric and found that plain fabrics have the highest value of thermal resistance following their compact structure. The compactness of the structure of plain weave reduces the porosity of the fabric, which results in lower thermal conductivity; canvas weave has a better thermal conductivity due to a comparatively open structure; and twill weave has the lowest value of thermal resistance and the highest value of thermal conductivity due toits open structure     `

Those are fabrics, home textiles, knitted products, medical and geotextiles, workwear and protective wear, nonwovens and other goods. Asian vs. Domestic While fashion industry experts expect Russian manufacturers to compete with imports from Southeast Asian counties, Russian brands could consider these countries as manufacturing partners.

     timism in the stock market about the future of the industry, where most stocks have seen considerable rise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its said they see much ahead of others !!! Â&#x2022;

  ~        Z       to break into the global textile industry as a superpower, however we continue to grow at the Hindu rate of growth. China, Bangladesh, Vietnam etc came from behind and left us far behind in the race. Once again we are being talked as having a golden chance to break free and run ahead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as China due to its development getting more expensive and vacating space for others. The question today is, will India again miss the bus ?? Are we aware of this chance and preparing ourselves or not ?? Lets see what has happened or happening in the various key segments of the industry. Some key trends/facts: y ¨          

 Â&#x152;      policy y Export incentives reduced for yarn and fabric y TUF incentives getting delayed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fund allocation reduced in Budget y [ÂŚÂ&#x2DC;    Â&#x2013;

FTAs have hardly helped us, the European one could be a game changer but certain other industry lobbies are not letting it see the light of the day. On the other hand our competitors like Bangladesh, Vietnam, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Mynammar, Cambodia, African nations are getting access through various treaties with Europe/USA/China. FDI is negligible, as Vietnam, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Mynammar are preferred destinations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now even African countries like Ethopia, Nigeria, Kenya are pitching hard.

Its looks like a long list of negatives, however there are positives also: y Government is very focussed on Skill Development and work is     ` 

 

   y Labour laws are being reviewed and positive amendments are expected to make them relevant to TODAY (however need to see how much the Govt succeeds in this) y Valuations of Textile Companies have increased, but fund raising hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened yet. Its important to understand why we feel the country has potential to be a textile superpower and why the Government should make it a key focus area. Some of the reasons are: y Largest industry employer, and has the potential to provide large scale skilled employment to the unemployed workforce of the country with just 3 months of training. y 

       Z y India has a huge potential of domestic consumption increasing due to population and growing incomes. y Provides huge self employment to entrepreneurs y Has surplus raw cotton and cotton yarn on which the garment industry can grow competitively y Industry is dispersed across the country and can play a major role in balanced development and inclusive growth. y China wage rates are double that of India and as it moves us the development curve, textiles is losing its importance. Other Asian nations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the infrastructure, raw material base          Â&#x2018; 

vacate in the global textiles markets. y We are like China moving up the development curve, probably its our last big chance to use our strengths and create a larger pie for ourselves. Its now or never for the textile industry to leapfrog. The basic reasons are compelling, however unless we get our act together           $    

is required from the Niti Aayog, Textile/Commerce/Finance/Labour/ $   '   

   ÂŁ'Â&#x2022; Â&#x2022;Â&#x2013;  

various segments of the industry to come up with a blueprint to capitalise on this golden opportunity available for the Industry. Just setting targets wont help, unless its backed by will and action â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is sadly lacking today. Z_     Â&#x20AC;}          

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the willingness to expand and grow isnt there, on the contrary we are talking of survival plans. The single biggest reason for most investment plans are Incentives rather than fundamentals. Â&#x2030;

This augurs well for our industry as exports of value added products in the long run would lead to greater employment and higher level of investments, he said. He also stated that the emergence of mega trade agreements being promoted by USA and the European Union amongst themselves and among other key trading

partners like Korea, Vietnam and Japan poses fresh challenges to countries like India. It therefore would be best if India takes an integrated approach rather than an adhoc approach while negotiating new FTAs or re-negotiating old ones.

The government also needs to include certain types of knitted fabrics which have been excluded from the list of items exported to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka. Concluding his speech, Shri R K Dalmia said that the industry needs to accept that greater use of technology is not only shrinking markets, product cycles, deadlines, but is also simultaneously providing all of us with newer platforms for reaching out to our customers worldwide.

Shri Dalmia pointed out that even though Indian Cotton textiles products were competitive in the world markets ,preferential access being given to some of our competing nations like , Bangladesh, Cambodia, Pakistan ,South Korea , Turkey and Vietnam by major importing countries like the EU besides discriminatory import duties on Indian textiles in important markets like China and Canada are severely affecting exports . [           Â&#x2039;  Dalmia urged the Government to fast track the conclusion of FTAs with EU, Australia and Canada to remove trade barriers and gain market access to these leading countries. The Chairman ,TEXPROCIL also urged

the Govt to initiate dialogue with China and Turkey for reduction in the import duties imposed by these countries on Indian textiles. Besides, the Govt should consider the Industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demands such as to include cotton textiles under the 3% Interest Rate Subvention Scheme , release of funds under the TUF Scheme, and recalibrating the product/ country matrix under the newly introduced Merchandise Exports from India Scheme ( MEIS) scheme which have a direct bearing in improving Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competitiveness in the short to medium term. This will provide the necessary stimulus to the falling exports          ~   cording to the Chairman ,TEXPROCIL . Â&#x2030;

Realising there is a need for an international textile sourcing show in the South Asian region, Intex South Asia was created with the sole purpose of converging the South Asian industry by bringing together suppliers and buyers from across South Asia on one       Z  Â&#x2039; $
