The Textile Industry of India:
The Indian Textile Industry boasts of having an overwhelming presence in the economy of the country.

Currently, it contributes about 14% to industrial production, 4% to the GDP and 17% to the Country's export earning. Notable, it provides employment to over 35 million people. And with the decentralization of the power loom / hosiery and knitting sectors, and new techniques to produce a variety of products to suit different market sections, there is a huge demand for trained professionals in the Textile and Apparel industry.

How do i get there?
One can enter the field after doing Diploma or Degree level programmes in the Textile and Apparel or related subjects like merchandising, fashion designing, textile retailing, product management and the like. The course duration can range from 1 Year to four to five years depending upon opted program level.

Students need to understand the industry from the scratch and then they can jump on to the specialized levels. The Master's programs are specially designed to prepare students to meet the challenges of design-driven industries through modules in manufacturing, merchandising, wholesaling and retailing. Students learn aspects like innovative problem solving, product development, and managerial strategies, that incorporate the application of new technologies.
