A training session at the eminent Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute VJTI in Mumbai on 17 May 2018 was addressed to future engineers. More than 220 textile manufacturing and mechanical engineering students followed the technical presentations. The VDMAâ€™s contribution to improve the education of future customers and partners was very much appreciated. The VDMA Textile Machinery Association and VDMA India Office cordially thank all media partners and supporting Associations involved (www.germantech-indiantextile.de).
In 2018, the Associationâ€™s next sales supporting activities take place in Belarus, Brazil, Uzbekistan, Iran, China and Egypt. Whereas the event on 15-16 May 2018 focused on customers.
The presented technology topics along the entire textile value chain will help the Indian industry to fulfill their expansion plans and to meet the challenges such as rising salary costs and shortage of labor in industrial regions. The major cutting-edge topics of the conference program were; Higher profits throughout the entire textile value chain, Energy, material, water and dyestuff savings for an environmentally friendly production, New applications such as technical textiles, nonwovens (e. g. hygiene products, geotextiles for the infrastructure) or home textiles (e. g. terry towels),Automation, industry 4.0, digital communication and smart factory solutions, Quality improvements e. g. with measurement and control systems, Lower investment costs in spinning preparation with integrated draw frames, New technologies to combine spinning and knitting, and Smart textiles and added value products e. g. with embroidery machines.
With an export of more than 255 million euros (+8 %) in 2017, India is a very essential market for the German textile machinery industry. Many German machinery builders have longstanding relations with Indian customers. Many of them also provide production plants and training centres in India.
The 32 well-known VDMA members participated in the conference have good chances to offer the right technologies and to place new orders considering this positive business climate and the high interest from the Indian industry.
About 370 decision-makers and experts from the textile and nonwoven related industry attended the VDMA conference and B2B event called â€œGerman Technology meets Indian Textiles and Nonwovensâ€ in Mumbai on May 15-16, 2018 (www.germantech-indiantextile.de).
According to a survey, both the event and German textile machinery engineering received the highest marks among the visitors. About 57 percent of the visitors stated very good and 38 percent good experience with machines and components from German suppliers. The performance and service promise as well as the high-quality standards have made German machine suppliers as most reliable partners in India and other countries. This positive result has by far not been reached by any other manufacturing nation from Europe or Asia. Asked for future processes, investments in technical textiles and/or nonwoven production seem to be the most favorite sectors in India. Around 74 percent of the visitors plan to expand their production capacities with new machines and components whereas 26 percent intend to replace old machinery by new machines and components. High productivity, after-sales service, end-product quality, low operating and acquisition costs are the decisive machine procurement criteria in this order. The investments plans are based on a positive business and investment outlook in India. Forty-five percent of the visitors surveyed plan to invest more than 10 percent within the next 12 months and 30 percent up to 10 percent. Twenty-five percent of the visitors expect a sales increase by more than 10 percent for the next 12 months and 60 percent anticipate a sales growth of up to 10 percent.
