India’s textile sector is the country’s oldest manufacturing industry. In FY2019, the GVA of textiles, apparel and leather product manufacturing accounted for 2.04% of total GVA, 7.07% of industrial GVA and 12.67% of manufacturing GVA. Textiles are second only to agriculture in employment generation. The sector is dominated by cotton and is the second largest producer, after China, of manmade fibre and filament. India’s textile and apparel sector is fragmented, with few large companies, and predominantly made up of small, independent and often unorganised players. The sector, which supplies fabrics and garments to leading global brands, is driven by India’s strengthening middle class, whose taste for Western clothing has only recently eclipsed the sales performance of traditional dress. The recent COVID-19 outbreak has hurt India’s textile trade with China, but it remains to be seen what longer-term effects the current crisis will have.
