Presentation on theme: "Welcome to The world of technical Textiles. Consumption of Technical Textiles Technical Textiles consumes 22% of total fibre consumption globally. "— Presentation transcript:
Consumption of Technical Textiles Technical Textiles consumes 22% of total fibre consumption globally. Consumption of technical textiles more in developed countries USA :23% Europe:22% China:13% India:04%
Technical Textiles in India Total domestic production worth Rs. 35327 crores (2007-08), likely to grow to Rs. 62438 crores (2012-13) Total market size including exports worth Rs. 37118 crores, likely to become Rs. 66634 crores by 2012-13 Total employment - 8.8 lakh persons Total Exports - Rs. 2759 crores (2007-08) Total Imports - Rs. 3897 crores (20007-08)
Why Technotex ? New Initiative by Ministry to realize the untapped potential of the sector Creating awareness for a better, secure and sustainable life Creating synergy between the Government, Industry and the consumers (public & private) Attempting to raise the Indian man fibre consumption at par with world trend of 60:40 in favor of manmade fibres Technology Mission on Technical Textiles
Initiatives by Ministry of Textiles to promote technical textiles Scheme for promotion of technical textiles in Xith Plan (48 crores) Concessional rate of 5 percent customs duty on most of the technical textile machinery Reduction in excise duty on man-made fibre and filament yarns : major raw material for technical textiles. Coverage of technical textile machinery under TUFS.
Government Initiatives Under TUFS, 10% capital subsidy on identified technical textile machinery has been provided in line with processing machinery. Withdrawal of excise duty exemption on sanitary napkins / baby diapers / incontinence diapers. Anomaly in customs duty has been removed on finished goods vis-à-vis raw material, i.e., Aramid fabrics vis-à-vis aramid yarn. Inclusion of technical textiles in Focus Product Scheme 7
Centres of Excellence (CE) In line with U.K. System, Centers of Excellence for four segments have been launched by the Govt. 8 AgenciesSegment BTRA and ATIRA (Mumbai, Ahmadabad) Geotech SITRA with A.C. College of Technology ( Coimbatore)Meditech NITRA & IIT, Delhi (Ghaziabad)Protech SASMIRA & MANTRA & Navsari Agricultural University & IIT, Delhi ( Mumbai) Agrotech
Major Applications of Geotech Railways Roads Landfill Engineering Coastal Protection, River Training and Water Resources Management Ground Improvement Hydraulic Engineering Applications Waterproofing of dams, canals, tunnels, pipes etc. Sport fields, golf courses, airfields, agriculture, aquaculture, liquid transportation, Dwellings, Industrial buildings, storage/staging areas, tank farms, parks and playgrounds, pools and lakes
Scope for Geotech Total market size of technical textiles in 2007- 08, Rs.37118 crores out of which Geotech only Rs. 185 crores (0.5%) Indian Road Network, second largest in the world, 33 lakh kilometers (Approx) Expressways - 200km National Highways - 70,548 kms State highways – 1,31,899 Kms Major District Roads – 4,67,763 Kms Rural & Other Roads – 26,50,000 Kms
Total Roads under NHDP – 33,455 Kms Total Roads under NHAI – 34,797 Kms Projects under implementation and yet to be taken – 21,000 Kms Total future requirements of Geotextiles for 21,000 Km roads under NHAI, would be worth Rs.1260 crores, that is seven times of the present market size of geotech in India Under Bharat Nirman (PMGSY) total target for 2009-10 is new connectivity of 24000 Kms which will require jute geotextiles worth Rs. 768 crores Rural Roads Development Plan- Vision 2025 – sky may be the limit for geotextiles
The Roadblocks Lack of awareness about geotextiles and its benefits Lack of Standards & specifications Lack of spread of application technology Long test trial approach delaying adoption More emphasis on physical targets i.e, ‘Kms’ and ‘population benefited’ rather sustainability Lack of sizable productions- production against firm orders- lack of investment Lack of regulations/ inclusion in schedule of rates/ specific adoption in Govt. schemes
Projections for Eleventh Five Year Plan During the Eleventh Plan with regulatory framework, technical textile industry is expected to register a growth of 24.57%. Without regulatory framework growth rate is likely to be about 11%.
