Textile & Handloom Sector in India

The Indian textile industry is one the most important industries for the Indian economy. Its importance is underlined by the fact that it accounts for around 4% of GDP, 14% of the industrial production and 17% of the country?s total export earnings. Besides, the sector employs nearly 35 million employees; the textile industry is the second-largest employment generating industry in both rural and urban areas, after the agriculture industry. The textile segment is highly fragmented and many large textile companies are also conglomerates of medium-sized mills. According to the statistics released by the Ministry of Textiles, the entire textile industry is highly fragmented except the spinning sub-segment.

Due to the economic boom in the last few years and rising consumption levels both in the domestic economy and globally, manufactures invested heavily and added capacities to meet the ever-increasing demand. The capital investments made in the textile mills remains the highest over the past 3 years. High investment and increasing support from the government has led to increase in employment in this sector. The demand for Hand Dyer remains high and is expected to stay the same in the future.
