Textile trade likely to get boost with Japan evaluating Indian labs

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-05-15 17:00:00 – Kolkata

The experts from Japanese Textile Products Quality and Technology Centre (QTEC) are currently evaluating eight laboratories belonging to the Textile Committee comply with the quality requirement. QTEC officials interacted with the local textile manufacturers and exporters.

The Textiles Committee’s main objective is to ensure the quality of textiles and textile machinery both for internal consumption and export purposes.

Already they have completed four laboratories located in Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Chennai and Kolkata, Textile Committee joint director K S Muralidhara said on Friday.

The Japanese textile market worth USD38 billion is presently dominated by China (65-70 per cent) and even Bangladesh (seven per cent) stays ahead of India which account for only one per cent.

Although Indian textiles are majorly exported to US and Europe, it is failing to pass the quality standards of Japan, Muralidhara said.

With China’s production cost rising, prospects of the Indian textile industry are turning bright.
