Indian textiles industry is one of the largest and oldest in the country. The sector showcases rich cultural heritage and traditional designs blend with modernity, making its products popular across the globe. India has diverse presence of natural and manmade fibres and the entire value chain exists in the country. The sector is closely linked with agriculture for its raw material requirements such as cotton, jute and silk etc.

In the last five years, the sector has shown an average growth of 6%. The sector contributes 2% to India’s GDP, 10% to manufacturing production and 13% to country’s export earnings. It is a labour intensive sector and generates huge employment both for skilled and unskilled labour. The sector directly employs more than 45 million people and hence is regarded as one of the largest employment generating sectors in the nation after agriculture. India exports large amount of textiles and garments currently standing at $36.6 billion.
