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 the 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 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 textile, construction textile, packaging textile, baby diapers, home textiles, 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.
