New Report Explores on Prospects for the textile and clothing industry in India, 2017
Prospects for the textile and clothing industry in India, 2017 is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack. India ranks as the world's second largest producer of textiles and clothing after China. Also, its textile and clothing industry is its largest manufacturing activity – in 2015/16 the industry accounted for 4% of India's gross domestic product and 14% of its national export earnings.
The Indian textile and clothing industry comprises thousands of ginning factories and mills, and millions of hand looms and power looms. As such, it provides direct employment for around 45 million people and indirect employment for an estimated 263 million people, and it benefits from a highly skilled workforce. Furthermore, the industry serves a huge domestic market which is forecast to be worth US$314 billion by 2025. Despite these bright spots, however, the industry faces several challenges – including an inadequate infrastructure, frequent power outages and a significant technological deficit compared with competing Asian countries. Also, many of the industry's production units operate at a low level of scale.
This report looks at the development of the textile and clothing industry in India, its size and structure, and textile and clothing production and consumption. In particular, the report features: a geographical, political and economic profile; a detailed look at the country's imports and exports; a review of government policies and investment incentives; an analysis of the industry's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT); and a look at India's infrastructure and human resources and how these affect the industry.
