Great business opportunities in the growing Eastern part of India

An international trade shows on

Apparel, Embroidery, Knitting Technology, Yarn, Fabrics and Accessories

Garknit – X has been playing a key role in spreading the technological revolution in Eastern region of India. In its 17th edition, the show is the largest event organized in this region, bringing in the cutting edge apparel and knitting technologies from all over the world. This time again, it is going to provide a perfect platform to the participants, to gain foothold in the fast growing market, as Kolkata is witnessing improvements in manufacturing capacities along with huge investments in new technology. Kolkata textile industry plays a very important role in the economy of the capital city of the State of West Bengal.

Recently, the government and industry leaders of the West Bengal have zeroed in on five sub-sectors of the textile value chain. The State is among the top producers in these segments, which will receive a boost in the form of government help. The five sub-sectors are hosiery and innerwear, linen, workwear, textiles machinery, and technical textiles.

Of the five segments, textiles machinery manufacturing could also lead to substantial import substitution and save precious foreign exchange for the country. India imports almost all the textiles machinery it needs and so the govt. is looking at developing this industry in the State. West Bengal has some advantage in the labour-intensive textile sector due to availability of a large number of skilled personnel.

Today, leading exporters and domestic innerwear brands and many kids wear brands originate from this region only. The metropolitan city of Kolkata houses a number of varied textile manufacturing and distributing companies. The textile industry here contributes to the industrial output, export and employment sectors of the city. Apart from hosiery, handloom, cotton, Jute and silk are other major industries flourishing in Kolkata.

Since Kolkata is a gateway of this region as well as countries like Bangladesh and Nepal, Garknit-X is very popular to buyers who are keen to adopt modern technology to the respective units to boost production capacity. The show has grown manifolds by each edition and helped the industry to upgrade the factories from second hand machines to new machines.
