As Arti Bhagat, Executive Director, Worldex India and organiser of Intex India said, “We are pleased to launch Intex in India and to see the participation of many high-caliber exhibitors and large numbers of international buyers here.
India today is a world leader in textiles, a key element of the global value chain being the world’s fifth-largest exporter of apparel, home, and technical textile products. India is targeting growth at 8 percent CAGR reaching $100 billion by 2030.
This target would help India double its share of the global textile and apparel trade from the current level of 5per cent.
Aims to accelerate growth
With a growing demand for man-made fibre (MMF) textiles as a substitute for cotton amid changes in global fashion trends, the Intex India exhibition offered international manufacturers and suppliers opportunities to explore new business and investment avenues in India under this sector and increase their supply-chain to fulfill the demand for sourcing innovative, eco-friendly and functional textiles which is much needed by the Indian apparel and fashion industry. Further, to increase its global market share, Indian manufacturers are producing a value-added range of garments and fashion accessories for global buyers to increase their sourcing from India and reduce their dependency on China.
Also, the Intex platform assists the domestic apparel industry to offer high-value and sustainable garments to fashion-conscious and high-spending Gen Z and millennial consumers. Intex India is organised with the purpose of accelerating this growth by supporting it through a strong business platform.
The show saw the presence of international suppliers.
