Indian Textile and Apparel Market to Grow at 14.8% During 2022-2027, Catalyzed by Abundant Availability of Raw Materials

Published on Nov 01, 2021

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Indian Textile and Apparel Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the Indian textile and apparel market size reached US$ 151.2 Billion in 2021. Textile refers to woven fabrics made up of plant- or animal-based materials like cotton, silk, wool, and polyester. On the other hand, apparel includes innerwear and outerwear worn by individuals to protect, adorn and wrap their bodies. These materials are produced using comfortable and breathable fabric, fibers and yarn derived from natural and synthetic sources. They are widely available in various materials and colors and are further used in manufacturing clothing, upholstery and other accessories.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Indian Textile and Apparel Market Trends: 

The abundant availability of raw materials, such as cotton, jute, and silk, coupled with the comparatively low cost of manufacturing textile and apparel due to cheap labor costs, represents the primary factor driving the market growth in India. Additionally, several initiatives undertaken by the Government of India, such as the introduction of the Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP) and the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS), for training the workforce and encouraging private investments in the textile sector have catalyzed the market growth. Shifting consumer preferences from need-based clothing toward aspiration-based clothing and widespread adoption of the emerging fast-fashion trend, especially by the young population are acting as other major growth-inducing factors. The growing usage of eco-friendly enzyme-based treatment processes in textile production, rising consumer expenditure on clothing, and the expanding e-commerce sector offering premium apparel at affordable price-points are some of the other factors creating a positive outlook for the market across the country. On account of these factors, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 14.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
