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 for the spinning sub-segment.

India is the second largest producer of textiles and garments in the world. The sector contributes about 14 per cent to industrial production, 4 per cent to the gross domestic product (GDP) and 27 per cent to the country's foreign exchange inflows. The textiles sector has witnessed a spurt in investment during the last five years. Therefore, the career of a Warp Knitter has a bright future and opportunities are only going to rise in the coming years.
