What do you think is the status of our textile machinery, parts & accessories industry -- a SWOT analysis Strengths: There is huge scope of development; hence potential for growth is high.
Weaknesses: Customers are not supporting ´Make in India´ policy, which may slowly lead to monopoly of some foreign supplier who will dictate prices at a later date.
Opportunities: Industry needs to support and maintain a win-win situation to the both user & manufacturer for steady growth of the right products Threats:
- Infiltration of cheap foreign suppliers
- Unhealthy competition and unethical practices
- Impregnating incorrect concepts to the customers
- Industry is not ready to pay for the value addition

What is your wish-list for the textile machinery industry and also the Government to make the industry a leader internationally?
