VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies Extends Support for Techtextil India’s Entry into Garment Machinery Segment
- Leading in apparel exports, India offers big market for textile and garment machinery
- Technology-leading brands on board for the launch of Texprocess Pavilion in India
“With India being one of the largest producers of garments worldwide, the demand for automation solutions is increasing,” said Mr. Elgar Straub, Managing Director of VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies. “But the market for technical textiles is also growing steadily in India and thus is the demand for processing technologies. The Texprocess Pavilion at Techtextil India is the ideal platform for German and European manufacturers of garment machinery and machines for the processing of technical textiles to present their technology solutions to the Indian market.”
Leading in apparel exports, India offers big market for textile and garment machinery
Leading in both apparel consumption and exports, India holds the second largest textile manufacturing capacity globally with the textile machinery sector witnessing a growth of 8-10 percent year on year. Also as the world’s second largest exporter of textiles and clothing, Indian apparel manufacturers are naturally moving towards increasing their manufacturing capacities and upgrading technology, giving rise to automation garmenting processes to enter the Indian market. The Ministry of Textiles is also seen encouraging investments through increasing focus on schemes such as Technology Up-gradation Fund Scheme (TUFS).
Working together with the VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies, the organizer aim to capitalize on this market need and deliver a professional platform that is purely focused on business needs of the Indian market.
This much-awaited launch has also drawn attention of the buyers from India’s largest garmenting associations – AEPC – Apparel Export promotion Council & CMAI – Clothing manufacturing of India both of whom have confirmed their support to the platform. Delegations from these key associations will be visiting the fair to identify the advancements and bring new technologies to their members.

Interest for the launch of Texprocess Pavilion has risen with the largest machinery importers IIGM Pvt Ltd & E H Turel, Mehala already on board. Mr. Pavan Kapoor, Managing Director, IIGM said: “India’s diverse markets are rightly positioned to manufacture, consume and export non-traditional textile products. Non-apparel related products have varied applications in geo thermal, wind, automotive, process industries, health care, technical textile and a multitude of applications and these industry related products need different technologies, compared to the traditional methods of manufacturing. It is therefore very exciting to understand and learn more about the applications of these newer technologies. We consider that these segments of business would surpass the requirement of traditional textile and leather products. IIGM’s participation in Techtextil India should offer detailed insights into some of these technologies.”
Techtextil India, on the other hand, continues to draw participation from industry majors including Garware Wall Ropes, Welspun, Reliance, Picanol, Khosla Profil, ATE, Santex AG among others. Discussions are also under-way with companies from Germany, China, Italy, USA, Switzerland, and Japan to bring in a mix of international expertise in technical textiles and technologies on one platform.
Together, the flagship combination of Texprocess and Techtextil in India will present a grand showcase covering the entire value chain in the fields of technical textiles, nonwovens, apparel textiles and apparel and textile technology.
