Textile materials that are manufactured for their technical performance and functional properties rather than aesthetic and decorative features fall under the technical textiles category. These products are broadly classified into 12 different categories- Agrotech, Oekotech, Buildtech, Meditech, Geotech, Clothtech, Mobiltech, Hometech, Sportstech,Indutech, Protech, Packtech.
To position India in technical textiles as a global leader, the Ministry of Textiles launched this scheme. The present yearly value of technical textiles is ₹14,000 crore. This mission aims to amp up this figure to ₹20,000 crore by 2021-22. This will ensure 10% yearly export growth on an average till 2023-24.
In this regard, let’s check out how the National Technical Textiles Mission ministry plans to implement this scheme.
