The Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) and the Synthetic & Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) will organise the first manmade fiber textile conclave in Mumbai, March 17. Under the themes innovation, efficiency and competitiveness, the conclave will explore the potential and examine the constraints in manmade fiber sector and evolve measures to spur growth and investment in this segment of the textile value chain.
The conclave, which would also emphasise on the need for interdisciplinary cooperation along the processing chain, would bring together leading manufacturers, consumers and end users of manmade fiber products to enhance the business potential in this vital sector.
As a part of the conclave, a business session will be held on emerging trends in manmade fiber technology. This session will discuss latest technologies, fiber/filament innovations, changing technology, changing applications, and also issues related to fiber demand and long term opportunities.
The conclave will also hold two panel discussions. One on issues related to manmade fiber consumption and mill demand, which is considered to be growing, but below potential. Experts will discuss the issues which affect fiber consumption and capacity. Demand for manmade fiber products is expected to increase with the advent and wide applicability of technical textiles.
The second panel will discuss the international manmade fiber textile trade and growth opportunities for India.
