THE INDIAN APPAREL INDUSTRY A NARRATIVE

I would like to focus today on the Indian Apparel industry specifically. 

The incomparable infrastructural development, the renewed apparel cluster approach, the expanding number of vertically integrated textile and apparel manufacturing units and above all, fully compliant manufacturing systems, hold huge promise of a vibrant fashion industry. Our strong raw material and value chain is already known to the world- With 47 Million Spindles, India has the world’s second largest spinning capacity. We are also the largest producer of jute, the largest producer of cotton and silk and among the largest producers of wool across the world. From traditional block printing and handloom weaving to modern rotary and sulzers, we do it all! 

We are the largest democracy in the world and people are our strongest dividend. Born of a civilization more than 5000 years old, we boast of one of the youngest populations and the second highest labour forces across the world. Our Government’s Skill India drive has been empowering this growing young population, with a strong policy focus on generating skill, scale and speed.Our industry has always been termed as highly gender biased. And so we are! Our Apparel sector employs the largest number of women in this country. For us, every recruitment drive, every working day and every shipment is an extraordinary discovery of her outstanding workmanship, dexterity and dedication. We are supported by the Government with outstanding polices and incentives like exceptional maternity benefits, to facilitate and encourage this 70% of our labour force.

I feel proud to say that this industry empowers almost 9 million Indian Women, who in turn empower 9 million Indian families!!
