Employment Prospects and the Significant Growth of the Indian Handicrafts Industry
The story of Indian handicrafts dates back to one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Indian handicrafts represent beauty, dignity, form and style. In the 1970s, the government initiated the preservation of crafts and skill upgrade with respect to the challenges the sector was facing. However the focus shifted to export in the later decades. It plays a significant role in the country?s economy and provides employment to more than 7.3 million people mostly from rural and semi-urban areas. Today, handicrafts and handcrafted gift items manufactured and exported from India are much sought after and have established an unsurpassable reputation in the international market. According to provisional data, the export of Indian handicrafts in the period of April-August 2014-15 has shown an increase of US$ 256.32 million, which is about 18.06 per cent over the same period in 2013-14.
Based on historical trends, the handicrafts sector is expected to grow by 16 per cent from 2013?17 and by another 16 per cent from 2017?22.
