The Industry has seen steady growth across segment over the past decade.

Favourable factor conditions present a key competitive advantage for Industry.

Abundant & Low cost availability of raw materials

  • India has availability of variety of raw materials-cotton, silk, jute and wool
  • In terms of cost, India has an advantage over comparative countries
  • This inherent strength in availability of raw materials prevents any supply-side shocks


Growing domestic demand

  • Disposable income of consumers has been rising steadily in India
  • The consuming class is expected to constitute 80% of the population by 2020
  • Change in consumer mind set has led to an increasing expenditure on consumption,including textiles


Government Support

  • Setting up of TUFS (Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme) with an allotment of US$ 211 million by 2008 - 2009
  • Encouraging public-private partnerships in textiles

Presence of capabilities across the entire value chain within the country reduces lead time for production and cuts down the intermediate shipping time


The Talent Deficit

Indian Apparel Industry is estimated to need about 4,00,000 junior managers and about 11,00,000 supervisors by 2020. Current output from various Institutes is about 25,000 and 50,000 respectively. This is woefully inadequate considering the demand.
