India’s relationship with textiles began as early as 3000 B.C with the use of organic dyes and block prints. Even today, intricate hand weaving, delicate embroideries and richness of fabric like Indian silk and satin attract people from all over the world. According to the authors estimates India’s textile and apparel sector equals USD 54 billion currently (both domestic and exports).
This is expected to grow to USD 158 billion by 2020. With many trading restrictions being removed, technological advancements, availability of multi-fibre based raw material, well established production bases, design capabilities, knowledgeable and skilled labour and various government initiatives, India is poised for tremendous growth in this sector.
