Problems in supply chain affecting garment exports

New Delhi

The garment industry has witnessed a remarkable rebound in exports since the wake of covid-19, but there are bigger challenges staring the sector in the form of supply chain constraints.

Animesh Saxena, President, Federation of Indian Micro and Small & Medium Enterprises (FISME), said that, while hike in fuel prices remains a concern as the dyeing and processing units have started added ad-hoc ‘fuel surcharge’, the inherent supply chain constraints come to fore during buoyancy. He has suggested the Government to help bolster investment in the supply chain to augment productive capacities.   

Raja Shanmugham, President, Tiruppur Exporters Association stated that, the current situation is adversely impacting the industry in all forms and the Government needs to understand that MSMEs are facing the brunt of the crunch in the supply of raw materials.

He further added that, this turmoil has been building up since the last 2 years and to sustain is a big challenge for us.

Looking at the current scenario, growth does not look immediate for the textile industry but a flow of investments will give the much-needed push to the supply chain.With this the Government also needs to aid the textile sector with technological advancement, and should come forward to safeguard the MSMEs.

India is the 6th largest exporter of textiles and apparel in the world, and is the 2nd largest employer in the country providing direct employment to 45 million people and 100 million people in allied industries.
