Hi,

The Textile Industry in India:
The Indian Textile Industry boasts of having an overwhelming presence in the economy of the country. The industry plays pivotal role through its contribution to industrial output, employment generation and export earning of the country. Currently, it contributed about 14% to industrial production, 4% to the GDP and 17% to the country;s export earnings. Notably, it provides employment to over 35 million people. And with decentralization of power loom / hosiery and knitting sectors, and new techniques to produce a variety of products to suit different market sections, there is huge demand for trained professionals in the textile and apparel industry.

For the growth of the industry, the Indian Ministry of Textiles believes that there is a strong need to focus on aspects like product development, CAD to develop designing capabilities, investment in trend forecasting to enable growth of industry.

The growth opportunities exists in areas including medical textiles, construction textile, packaging textile, baby diapers, home textiles, blankets, bed, toilet and kitchen linen, curtains drapes, interior blinds, furnishing articles, sacks and bags, tarpaulin, sail, tent and camping goods.
