Gartex Texprocess India, jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt India and MEX Exhibitions, will provide an opportunity to accelerate technological advances in the Indian textile and garments industry by showcasing products from over 120 exhibitors in Mumbai 12-14 May.
The show includes an exclusive Denim Talks series to present digital manufacturing and bio dyeing technique for the first time in India, while the first-ever Flash dyeing technique of indigo will be made public at the show.
The Mumbai trade fair, held at at the Jio World Convention Centre in BKC, hopes to capitalise on the momentum created by its New Delhi edition. The Denim Show, Fabric & Trims Show and Screen Print India will also be hosted under the Gartex Texprocess India 2022 umbrella and will display innovations in textile and garment making machinery, denim, trimmings and screen-printing verticals.
Shri Vijoy Kumar Singh, additional secretary, Ministry of Textiles – Government of India, stated: “I am glad to know that Messe Frankfurt India and MEX Exhibition are organising the first edition of Gartex Texprocess India 2022 in the financial capital of India after successfully hosting the show in Delhi last year. I had an opportunity to inaugurate the Delhi edition and visited the exhibition in person… We need to be careful but at the same time push economic activity in light of employment creation and development.
The Indian textiles industry is majorly dependent on imported machines. Singh said the Ministry was formulating a scheme for incentivising manufacturing of textiles machinery in India. “The approach is to incentivise local innovation and at the same time invite eminent manufacturers to set up ventures locally,” Singh believed.
