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.

What Impact Yuan devaluation can have on Indian textile industries?

Yuan devaluation impact on Indian textile

The Impact- What It means for India
The recent devaluation of Chinese currency Yuan, is called to be a bold move on the part of its Government, considering the fact, that while it will boost the Chinese exports, this move will eventually harm a large section of other markets, worldwide. In fact, this came as a blow to the Indian export market given the situation that the markets have already been going week in the recent past due to the recessionary conditions in the global arena! Now the question arises, where is it that it hurt the most? Sadly the answer is not just singular. This move on China’s part is understood to interfere with India’s textile industry, chemicals, metals, consumables as well as the e-commerce sector. Further the depreciation in Yuan’s value may cause Chinese people to opt local brands over imported ones. India will face substantial challenges due to this situation because china is a big market for goods such as cotton copper and chemicals exported from India. If china strategically keeps reducing the value of its currency in comparison to rupee, Indian markets might get flooded with cheaper Chinese goods available in the market.
