Dear Sir/Madam,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Kindly find below point to get brief idea on Textile & Garment Industry.

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 contributes 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 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.

For the growth of the industry, the Indian ministry of Textiles believes that there is 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 textile, 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.

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.

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.
