Planning a more exciting ITMACH 2019

More exhibitors, the absolute latest technologies,  knowledge sharing sessions,  larger area, global visitors will be the mark of the third edition of  ITMACH India 2019,  from December 5-8.

The third edition of ITMACH India will be held from December 5-8, 2019, in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, the most important hub of textile manufacturing in the country. This edition of ITMACH India will be important for the textile industry, especially in the Asian region, being the first large scale show in India, just about six months after ITMA 2019, in Barcelona.

Organisers expect this to be a bigger show, with more than 500 exhibitors, compared to 350 exhibitors in the last edition in 2017. This time too, a lot of the latest technologies will be on display. A number of important players in the textile engineering industry have already signed up as exhibitors.

The Indian textile industry is going through a restructuring phase. Investments in spinning are expected to slow down for the next couple of years. The decentralised weaving sector, which manufactures around 65-70 % of the fabric in the country, is upgrading its obsolete technologies. Processing continues to remain a challenge for the industry, and zero liquid discharge is a solution for this polluting segment. Garmenting too needs to pick up, to cater to the growing domestic and global demand. Labour availability and costs are another obstacle to growth and profits of the industry.

Given this background, the industry will continue to invest in technologies that offer better quality, productivity, automation, sustainability. Moreover, with many states offering a number of incentives to the textile and apparel industry, investments in the right products and technologies will go up. An interesting time for the world’s textile technology suppliers to be in India!

ITMACH India, as always, will attract genuine buyers and visitors from across the country, keeping exhibitors busy through the four days of the show. The organisers will also bring in various state delegations, and country delegations.

An added attraction at ITMACH India this time is a series of conferences, which will have renowned international speakers, and will attract a global audience.

Indian Textile Sourcing (ITS) Exhibition 2019 will be held concurrently to ITMACH India 2019.
