The Indian textile industry has continuously invested in innovations and technology upgradations as global opportunities open-up. The backbone of the Indian textile industry- the spinning sector has off late been facing tight demand situation due to US-China trade war, China’s trade agreements with Pakistan and Vietnam as well as high domestic cotton prices. This has resulted in slower investment in the spinning sector this year. However, US-China trade war has also brought some new opportunities to weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing and wet processing and garmenting sector. Global brands and retailers are looking for Indian suppliers with economy of scale plant with state-of-the-art process technology. Therefore, the Indian weaving, processing and garmenting sectors are still in investment mode and resource efficient technologies are much in demand.
