  • Many of the technical textile products can be produced by the conventional process, machine's and equipment, depending upon the application area and functional parameters. Depending on the type of application, degree of precision required for the end use requirement and rigidity of governing specifications, the products, processes, machinery and equipment should be selected. However, India has a fairly good infrastructure of spinning, weaving, wet-processing, lamination, coating etc., which, in the present form are capable of producing varieties of technical textiles. Such items should be identified and marketing effort should be made accordingly.

  • Textile manufacturers venturing into the area of technical textiles need to examine the level of their in-house technologies, know-how and competence and make concerted efforts to modify them to the extent possible to the requisite level. If it is inescapable to import technology in high-tech areas of technical textiles, it is essential that efforts should be aimed at acquiring state-of-the-art technology as far as possible and to be prepared to invest, assimilate, innovate and improve the technology.

  • To uplift the faltering textile industry with the help of proper product mix, which will include value added technical textiles falling within their existing production capacity.
