According to Arvind Semlani, Director, K & D ITMACH Expositions, “The Indian textile industry has continuously invested in innovations and technology up-gradations as global opportunities open up. While the spinning sector is facing a challenging situation due to US-China trade war, it has also brought some new opportunities to weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing & wet processing and garment sectors.
