YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-11-03 10:00:00 – New Delhi

The third edition of ‘National conclave on standards on technical textiles’ organised jointly by the Ministry of Textiles, Bureau of India Standards (BIS) and FICCI was inaugurated by the Textile Secretary Anant Kumar Singh on Thursday.

The conclave, since its inception, has been instrumental in bringing together institutional buyers in various segments along with industry to discuss the standards that needed to be formulated by BIS on priority.

Textiles Secretary Anant Kumar Singh at the inauguration said that India has the capability, resource and market in the area of technical textiles and the need was to capitalise on these strengths. Hence, eight committees have been formed at the Centre of Excellences in India to help identify the areas in which standards needed to be formulated and to expedite the process of developing standards for the technical textiles sector.

The market of technical textiles is expanding rapidly with new products being added by the users in various industries. However, the share of technical textiles in the domestic textile sector as well as at the global level was very low as compared to developed countries and this needed to be addressed. Thus it is imperative to formulate standards to accelerate the growth of the textiles sector.

It is imperative for the stakeholders, including industry, policy makers and research institutes to work in close collaboration and also suggest ways to make the process of developing standards for technical textiles faster, Singh added. The eight committees will also include industry representatives.

The government will also launch the new mission for technical textiles soon as the earlier mission has completed its period.
