Singapore - India?s knitting and hosiery sectors are likely to welcome Indorama?s decision to double production capacity of its spandex fibre in the country to 10,000 tonnes per year by the end of 2014.

The company, which operates in India through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Indorama Industries Ltd, currently manufactures 5,000 tonnes of spandex fibre per annum under its Inviya brand at its plant in Baddi in Himachal Pradesh. Applications for Inviya include activewear, intimate apparel, sportswear, hosiery and socks with a cholrine resistant variant also available for the swimwear market.
