performance of the Indian home textile exporters is because of the
pandemic-induced lifestyle changes which have made people more conscious about
their hygiene and have also created a culture of stay-at-home. As per the
report, the sales for the past three quarters have been 25-40% higher than the

Vice President and Co-Group Head, Corporate Sector Ratings, ICRA.
market for export is the US which accounts for 60% of the total home textile
exports from the country. As compared to a 9% increase in India’s home textile
product exports of $ 5.7 billion in FY21, the exports to the USA have increased
by 4% whereas the exports to the other markets like the UK and the EU have
declined. Ponniah also said that this increase in exports to the USA is partly
attributable to the distribution model for these products. A large number of
departmental chains remained open even during the lockdown phase. Also, due to
a strong festive demand this year and favourable vaccination across key markets

textile exporters, said the report.
ICRA also said
that the larger exporters have a robust backlog and will rely more on job-work
