Growth Estimates of Textile Industry in India1

The textile industry is one of the most important industries of the Indian economy and it is the second largest provider of employment after agriculture. It has witnessed phenomenal growth in recent years and attracted fair amount of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The Textile and Apparel Industry in India is estimated to be about USD 36 billion. It is the largest foreign exchange earner, contributing to approximately 15% of India?s exports and 14% of industrial output. India?s solid performance and growth in the textile sector is fuelled by several key advantages that the country enjoys in terms of abundant availability of raw material and cheap labour, large domestic market, presence of supportive industries and supportive policy initiatives by the government.

Latest Trends in Textile Sector in India2

Textile exports accounted for more than 20% of India?s total exports in 2001. Since then the share has fallen to less than 10%, but India is still the world?s second largest textile exporter, second only to China. A number of factors like India?s strength in raw materials such as cotton, jute and silk suggest that the textile sector will continue contributing strongly to overall exports in the coming years. The Ministry of Textiles in India has formulated numerous policies and schemes for the development of the industry aiming to diversify both the product base as well as export markets, enhancing textile-oriented technology and investing in innovative marketing strategies. Furthermore, a weaker rupee, rising labour costs in China and safety compliance issues for factories in Bangladesh (another major textiles producer) give India the ideal opportunity to increase its market share. India?s textiles exports are forecasted to increase by 12% a year in 2014-30.
