Infrastructure Availability

India’s technical textile sector is primarily SME-oriented, with manufacturing clusters concentrated in the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat and Union Territory of Daman & Diu. A few manufacturers also operate in Himachal Pradesh and Punjab.

Ministry of Textiles has supported the establishment of 8 Centres of Excellences (COEs) that focus on various segments of technical textiles. These COEs act as one-stop centres for various services relevant to technical textile industries, including:

  • Facilities for testing and evaluating technical textiles products of identified segments in collaboration with national and international accreditations and collaborations with foreign institutes and laboratories
  • Research and development facilities
  • Resource centres with I.T. infrastructure
  • Facilities for indigenous development of prototypes
  • Facilities for training personnel in the technical textile industry
  • Knowledge sharing with stakeholders
  • Incubation centre facilities
  • Identification and drafting of product and process standards for ensuring quality that is globally accepted
