  • Today, India is known as one of the world leaders in textiles and is a key element of the global value chain being the world’s fifth-largest exporter for apparel, home, and technical textile products. Over the last few years Indian industry has dramatically increased production to fulfil the increasing demands of the domestic as well as export markets. India now expects industry growth at 8% CAGR to reach $100 billion by 2030. This target would help India double its share of the global textile and apparel trade from the current level of 5%.
