OPPORTUNITIES

India is more cost competitive than China and Brazil across a range of materials. India also has a diverse supply of raw materials, 23 varieties of cotton and all four varieties of silk. This inherent strength in availability of raw materials insulates the market from any supply-side shocks. Labor costs in India continue to be significantly low as compared to other countries. This factor provides a significant advantage to the textile industry in India, in terms of increased productivity at lower costs. With government support and new technological advancements there is huge scope for exports in the ever increasing demand of technical textile industry globally.

Strong raw material base, economized cost of production, supporting Government policies like TUF scheme, Scheme for Integrated Textile parks, Integrated processing development scheme for sanctioning processing parks and Integrated skill development scheme and recognition of Indian goods in International markets provide excellent opportunity for India to increase its share in World trade.

OUTLOOK

Indias textile industry is an attractive sector that is poised for growth. The industry enjoys significant strengths and advantages, such as availability of raw materials, labor, domestic market and supportive government policies. The industry is also undergoing transformation, with an increasing number of MNCs establishing their presence to leverage Indias potential. The outlook for Indian textile industry remains optimistic, as demand is expected to pick up on account of improving economic sentiments in both domestic and export markets.

RISKS AND CONCERNS

Availability of Cotton, the main raw material for manufacture of Cotton Yarn, is subject to the vagaries of nature and the prices also fluctuate wildly based on supply/demand in the World market and Government policy on export of Cotton. Availability of labour, competition from Countries having preferential trade agreement with developed economies are some of the risks faced by the textile industry.
