Abstract

Technical Textiles sector potentially has ample opportunity for India, both, from a production as well as consumption perspective. The Government has already taken a few steps to promote this sector. Especially, with the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government, this sector is set to become more attractive for investors and entrepreneurs alike. India is witnessing growth in this sector as an end user and trader. Thus, India can emerge as a key player in the technical textiles sector. This study attempts to establish the attractiveness of the technical textiles sector in the contemporary India when ‘Make in India’ initiative is being promoted by the Government.
