Tirupur’s domestic garment sales exceed export

Tirupur, Tamil Nadu

Tirupur’s export values of garments have always been higher than the local sales, and for the first time, the last fiscal has seen higher local sales when compared to export values. In the last fiscal, the sale within India was Rs 300 billion while the export value was Rs 250 billion. Garment production value also increased by 12%.

The COVID-19 pandemic that hit the garment industry in March 2020, bought down its export volumes. According to Raja M Shanmugam, President, Tirupur Exporters Association, the garment makers received a price markup for the domestic market and larger brands increased their procurement by 10-12%.
