In spite of turbulent market circumstances, the India Professional Textile Care market is booming and growing fast. Nevertheless there is a strong price competition, still a low availability of skilled personal and only little knowledge on modern processing techniques. But this is improving rapidly and the opportunities are immense. The country is economically progressing and currently one of the fastest growing economies in the world. There is a strong focus on modernization and investments in clear market opportunities.
