R & D and Quality Assurance
Research & development, consultancy, quality management, testing and evaluation hold the key to the success of capturing a substantial share of the competitive global market of technical textiles. Accordingly substantial investment in R & D will be unavoidable.
Strong world class testing facilities for accurate and relevant evaluation of technical textile must be made available in India to satisfy the stringent and critical requirements of performance related products parameters in the global market.
Since most of the technical textiles lose almost their total market value if any of the parameters fails to conform to the specifications, the quality control and quality culture should be of a high order to ensure "Right the First Time and Right Every Time".
Centers for excellence
The field of TT is so vast that, unlike conventional textile materials, it would not be possible to provide support services for all fields from one organization. Therefore, it would be appropriate that numbers of centers should be opened across the country to integrate overall development of the field.
Product development and production of technical textiles will succeed only if simultaneous market development is also carried out to sustain demand.
Success of a new technical textile product will essentially depend on the user of the product. Therefore, it will be necessary to have close interaction between textile technologists and technical personnel of the users, viz., engineers, doctors, etc. who will use such technical textiles.
