In addition to this, the demand from other countries for exports has also increased significantly over the years. This is because several brands also look to India as a cost-effective manufacturing hub for their products.
The industry contributed 2% to the Indian GDP prior to the pandemic in the year 2018-19. In addition to this, the industry also contributed 12% to earnings from exports and 5% to the global trade in textiles and apparel for the same period.
The textile industry was one of the hardest-hit industries during the pandemic. This was mainly because the industry did not have any alternative as workers were forced into a lockdown. In addition to this, the demand for many of their clients who were retailers also dropped drastically.
Despite the multitude of issues that the textile industry faced during the pandemic they found a silver lining and adapted when it came to manufacturing covid essentials. Today India is the 2nd largest manufacturer of PPE in the world.
