Evolution of Garment/Textile Industry

Evolution of Indian Textile

The evolution of the textile as well as the garment industry in India, if nothing, has been quite dramatic. In fact the Indian textile industry is hugely diverse much like the nation itself.  As strong as this industry is, it derives this innate vigour from its wide range of fibres or yarns, right from the natural ones like cotton, wool, jute and silk, to the synthetic ones of the likes of polyester, nylon, acrylic and viscose. While the sector was no less than thriving under the British Rule, it was only after independence that the Indian textile industry shot up like never before. Thanks to the 5-years plans, the sector saw a steep rise, of the magnitude of 22 million in production in 1982, just double of what it was in 1951. It further registered an increase and went up to 26 million, by the end of the year 1989.

Recent Challenges Faced By Indian Textile Mills & Drop in Yarn Export

Challenges of Indian Textile Mills

The textile industry of India contributes a whopping 12% to the nation’s forex earnings! However, the economic slowdown in the global market has had its adverse effects on the Indian Textile Industry, in addition to the various other verticals. While the overall textile and garment exports of the country rose by almost 4% in the current financial year, but it has still fallen short of the $45 billion target, pertaining to the massive decline in China’s demand with respect to cotton and yarn.
At present, the spinning mills have up to 10% material in excess capacity thereby resulting in higher inventory overheads and lower liquidity. The higher tariffs that have been imposed on products of these mills in all the major international markets, has further aggravated the issue.

Supply Chain in Indian Textile Industry

With a stature that big this industry has also come to have a celebrated presence world-over. This being said, the textile industry of India, however, is not as organized as one would assume it to be. Though the presence of intensely structured entities in the market cannot be denied, but the fact of the matter is that the better part of this industry is still ruled by small-scale enterprises, which are either consumed in creating handicrafts or engaged in manufacturing of apparels. Needless to state, it is this nature of textile industry that somehow cripples the existence of an effective supply chain.

An Order to Remember

Textile Industrytestimonials

It was mid-October,  A time for festivals in India.  A time to embrace new hopes for the coming year. And yes, for all the businessmen and traders, a time to earn business and make unparalleled profits. At least, that is what Mr. Rakesh Trivedi must have thought.  But, God had some other plans, and not so pleasing ones. Well, let’s hear it straight from the man!

“It was through a very good friend”, recalls Mr. Trivedi. He said, “It was on 11th Oct, 2011, I can recall because well how can one forget such a day! My friend barged into my office with this huge smile on his face. He gleamed with excitement when he told me about his relative, Mr. Sahu who lived in the States. To complete one of his organisation’s orders, Mr. Sahu was required to acquire a whopping quantity of three 40’ HQ of Tapestry Christmas Cushion Covers. My friend had suggested Mr. Sahu that I can provide him with the material at a reasonable rate. Mr. Sahu agreed to negotiate & eventually place order.”  Adds Mr. Trivedi, “To be frank, I thought the idea was preposterous and I cannot strike such a deal, especially with no excess funds for backing. However, my friend was insistent, and ultimately we closed the deal! As excited as I was about the order, I knew it was something that would take up the better part of my capital and would leave me almost cashless. However, I moved forward towards completing the order.  It took me a lot of taxing days and sleepless nights before I could get the order ready.”

He continued, “It was 25th of November, when the phone rang. It was my friend at the other end, but this time the perkiness in his voice was missing. He sounded grim. Turned out, the organisation was shut down, and the consignment was no longer required. I was dumbstruck. Though there was still time for Christmas, but for an order this huge, there was no possibility of finding a doting customer. I was right. There was no customer. Not in 2011. Not in the coming three years. My finances were in a bad shape. As guilty as my friend was feeling, one fine day he gathered some courage and came to me. He suggested a website called, where many other home textile suppliers like I had published there stock. He insisted that I visit the site and put up the details of my stock up there. Although reluctantly, I agreed. I got in touch with the team, and did as required. And there can be no words, whatsoever, to explain my surprise and joy, when my entire stock of homefurnishing textiles got sold out within a span of just 9 days! Yes, that’s true, I sold it to 2 different traders and that too at approximately my production price! Well God, or let’s say the universe, works in mysterious ways. That’s all I can say. I can never thank my stars, or for that matter enough!”

Outlook for Indian Textile Industry in 2015 – Business Shifting from China

For several years, India has enjoyed the position of being the second largest producer exporter of textiles in the world. According to reports, the total Indian textile industry, including domestic & exports, is expected to reach $223 billion by 2021, rising from $89 billions in 2011. Statistics reveal that the country has overtaken countries such as Italy, Germany, and Bangladesh, to emerge as the second largest textile exporter, the largest being China. The good news is that due to rising labor costs, China is gradually losing its competitive edge. There are also several other factors contributing to the downfall of China’s textile exports, such as, appreciating currency value, rising material & energy costs, and a high focus on the domestic market. The decline in China’s market share in textiles provides an opportunity for India to excel in this sector. Further, the abundant availability of raw materials, huge domestic market, improved economic conditions, and Government initiatives such as “Make In India” are some of the advantages that fuel the solid performance of the Indian textile industry for export.

What Does The 2015 Budget Mean For The Textile Industry

The first full term 2015 Financial Budget presented by the Modi Government for the financial year FY-16 is a really disappointing one, especially for the textiles sector. Many of the promises have not been kept and the lackluster budget didn’t allocate much funds to alleviate the woes of the textile industry.

Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley has decided to boost infrastructure projects in this budget, which was a severe blow to the textile manufacturers since they expected some tax cuts in order to obtain a bias-free market. The saddest part is that there was no discernable mention of the Textile industry in the budget.
