Textile "Tex" revolution necessary for India

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Textile revolution, collaboration, and cooperation have to be aggressively sought after to bring in raw materials and technologies to fulfill the requirements of the Indian textile industry. More importantly, these factors are very critical now due to the raw material shortfalls such as cotton. Indian textile industry is predominately cotton based and is export dependent. The industry mix on an average is 60% cotton and 40% synthetics. The Government of India has undertaken dedicated efforts to formulate a National Fiber Policy. This Fiber Policy should encompass all fibers including natural and synthetics. India's production of cotton will be around 280 lakh bales in the 2009-10 cotton session. The ATNT-2009 international conference, which will be held at the Bannari Amman Institute of Technology campus in Sathyamangaiam, India in December 2009, will focus on finding solutions to some of the difficulties faced by the Indian and global textile industries.
