With a history spanning several centuries, India's textile industry is among the world’s most historic. The textiles sector, which focuses on hand-spun and hand-woven products, is at one end of the industry's extreme diversity, while the sophisticated mills' sector, which requires a lot of capital investment, is at the other.

India's textile sector is fundamentally strong because of its robust production of a variety of fibres and yarns, ranging from natural fibres like cotton, silk, jute and wool to synthetic/artificial fibres like polyester, nylon, viscose and acrylic.

The Indian textile and clothing sector is anticipated to increase at a 10% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) from 2019–20 to 2025–26, according to IBEF (Indian Brand Equity Foundation).

India accounts for 4% of the world's textile and clothing trade.

Between April 2000 and March 2022, the industry (including dyed and printed goods) attracted FDI totalling ₹0.3259 lakh crore. Over the past 5 years, investments have soared in the textiles industry.

Risks and concerns

Some major risks and challenges faced by the Indian textile industry are as follows:

The cost of raw materials rising

Following the shutdown of numerous units in China due to pollution regulations, prices have risen. The cost of dyes has gone up due to the increase in the price of imported raw materials.

Lack of raw materials

The closing of several factories in China and Europe over environmental concerns has caused an unprecedented increase in the cost of fundamental raw materials on global markets.

Strenuous social and environmental standards to achieve

Environmental compliance is only sometimes the primary priority for importers of textiles and apparel. Given the growing demand for the apparel industry to improve its environmental compliance efforts, breaking environmental standards might jeopardise the supply chain.

Manual labour's lack of efficiency

Contrary to wealthier nations, India's textile industries still require much intensive labour because the industries are not fully automated.
