TEXTILES AND GARMENTS

FDI In Textiles & Garments

India’s textiles sector is one of the oldest industries in Indian economy dating back several centuries. India's overall textile exports during FY 2017-18 stood at USD $39.2 bn in FY18 and is expected to increase to USD $82 bn by 2021 from USD $31.65 bn in FY19.

Abundant availability of raw materials such as cotton, wool, silk, jute and manmade fibres has led India to be one of the world's largest producers of textiles and garments. The country has become an attractive destination for FDI in the Indian textile industry thanks to foreign direct investment policy in textiles. The Indian domestic textile and apparel industry contributes 2% to India’s GDP, 14% of industrial production, 27% of the country’s foreign exchange inflows and constitutes 13% of country’s export earnings. Exports in the Textiles & garments industry are expected to reach $300 bn by 2024.
