Textile trade likely to get boost with Japan evaluating Indian labs

Experts from Japanese Textile Products Quality and Technology Centre (QTEC) are currently evaluating eight laboratories belonging to the Textile Committee comply with the quality requirement. QTEC officials interacted with the local textile manufacturers and exporters

The Textiles Committee’s main objective is to ensure the quality of textiles and textile machinery both for internal consumption and export purposes.

Already they have completed four laboratories located in Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Chennai and Kolkata, Textile Committee joint director K S Muralidhara said on Friday.

The Japanese textile market worth USD 38 billion is presently dominated by China (65-70 %) and even Bangladesh (7 % ) stays ahead of India which account for only one percent.

Although Indian textiles are majorly exported to US and Europe, it is failing to pass the quality standards of Japan, Muralidhara said.

With China’s production cost rising, prospects of the Indian textile industry are turning bright.
