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 for the spinning sub-segment.
