Textiles and Handloom Industry in India

The Indian Brand Equity Foundation in their report on the Handloom industry of India have stated that the Indian handloom industry demonstrates the richness and diversity of Indian culture. Along with this fact the sector employs about 4.3 million people and this makes it the second-largest employment provider for the rural population in India after agriculture.

The report suggests that this sector accounts for around 15 per cent of the total cloth produced in the country (excluding wool, silk and yarn) and has the largest infrastructure with 2.3 million weaving looms. The total handloom cloth production in India reached 6.9 billion sq m in 2012?13 which was up from 6.6 billion sq m in 2008?09. The country supplies 95 per cent of world demand for hand woven fabric.

With all these figures in considerations it is safe to say that the demand for a Stentering Machineman is there in the present and will surely increase in the coming years.
