Written By Views maker on September 27, 2009 | 9/27/2009

The current trend of heavy dependency on cotton-based knitwear products would restrict the export opportunities, besides catering to the clothing needs of summer seasons only. Exporters were not able to supply winter season clothing because of non-availability of the right kind of synthetic fibre and lack of technology for processing the special fibre Garment exporters in knitwear hub of Tirupur, with annual outbound shipments of products worth Rs 12,000 crore, are gearing up for major diversification from cotton-based knitwear to apparels made of man-made fibres, to ensure round-the-year business. With more use of synthetic fabrics, the manufactures would be able to come out with wide range of products including winter wears, sports wears and swim wears among others, thereby adding value to their portfolio With an objective of helping export community to go in for wider range of products in different kinds of fabrics to a larger market, Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) is in the process of setting up a Knitwear Technology Mission (KTM). KTM entered into an agreement with Pailung Machineries and Mills Ltd, Korea, to share the technology and supply of fabrics. With this, new range of products would enter foreign markets
