Driving change in the textile industry

The Indian textile industry is poised for remarkable growth in the forthcoming years, says Pratik Gadia.

The textile industry holds a crucial role in India due to its rapidly growing population, where 67.8 per cent fall within the age range of 15-64, placing considerable emphasis on clothing. Despite the sector’s historical significance and global economic contributions, it faces challenges in terms of opaque processes, outdated practices, and environmental concerns.

Addressing these issues head-on, The Yarn Bazaar emerges as a transformative force. This modern marketplace for yarn redefines industry norms with efficiency, transparency, and sustainable practices. The Yarn Bazaar’s approach empowers small yarn buyers and suppliers, fostering a dynamic shift towards a more responsible and inclusive textile ecosystem.

An overview of the Indian textile industry’s current situation

The current landscape of the Indian textile industry is marked by substantial growth and transformation, propelled by increasing demand, government backing, and technological advancements. Key facets of the present scenario encompass:

  • The Indian textile industry holds a significant position in the nation’s economy, contributing 2.3 per cent to the GDP, 13 per cent to industrial production, and 12 per cent to exports.
