The Indian textile industry is one of the largest in the world with a massive raw material and textiles manufacturing base. Our economy is largely dependent on the textile manufacturing and trade in addition to other major industries. About 27% of the foreign exchange earnings are on account of export of textiles and clothing alone. The textiles and clothing sector contributes about 14% to the industrial production and 3% to the gross domestic product of the country. Around 8% of the total excise revenue collection is contributed by the textile industry. The textile industry accounts for as large as 21% of the total employment generated in the economy. In 2000/01, the textile and garment industries accounted for about 4 percent of GDP, 14 percent of industrial output, 18 percent of industrial employment, and 27

percent of export earnings. India?s textile industry is also significant in a global context, ranking second to China in the production of both cotton yarn and fabric and fifth in the production of synthetic fibers and yarns. The Indian textile industry continues to be predominantly based on cotton, with about 65% of raw materials consumed being cotton. The yearly output of cotton cloth was about 12.8 billion m (about 42 billion ft). This Industry is providing one of the most basic needs of people and this holds importance; maintaining sustained growth for improving quality of life. (Source: fibre2fashion.com)


Global economic activity is experiencing a broad- based and sharper-than-expected slowdown, with inflation higher than seen in several decades. The cost-of-living crisis, tightening financial conditions in most regions, Russia?s invasion of Ukraine, and the lingering COVID-19 pandemic all weigh heavily on the outlook. Global growth is forecast to slow from 6.0 percent in 2021 to 3.2 percent in 2022 and 2.7 percent in 2023. This is the weakest growth profile since 2001 except for the global financial crisis and the acute phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rising interest rates and the war in Ukraine continue to weigh on economic activity. China?s recent reopening has paved the way for a faster-than-expected recovery. Global inflation is expected to fall to 6.6 percent in 2023 and 4.3 percent in 2024, still above pre-pandemic levels.

Monetary policy should stay the course to restore price stability, and fiscal policy should aim to alleviate the cost-of-living pressures while maintaining a sufficiently tight stance aligned with monetary policy. Structural reforms can further support the fight against inflation by improving productivity and easing supply constraints, while multilateral cooperation is necessary for fasttracking the green energy transition and preventing fragmentation.

The global textile market size was valued at USD

1032.1 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.0% from 2022 to 2030. The global athleisure market size is anticipated to reach USD 330.97 billion by 2022 and grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1% from 2023 to 2030. Over the projection period, increased passion for sports and outdoor recreational activities among the country?s young population is predicted to fuel demand for athleisure gear.

One of the primary aspects driving this trend is a rise in consumer fitness and health consciousness, which is generating the demand for comfortable and fashionable clothes. The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically altered the yoga landscape around the world. Yoga studios, gyms, health clubs, and other locations where in-person group yoga lessons were held were shut down or temporarily closed on a global scale as a result of the lockdown measures. However, the shift from in-person sessions to online platforms supported the market growth.

Furthermore, several businesses concentrate on specific active wear product categories and prioritize customer satisfaction. Several businesses also offer tailored gear that is best suited to different types of customers, as well as professional advice to help customers choose the right product. Sustainability, a long-standing fashion trend, has made its way into the athleisure sector. Consumers continue to find and invest in new items made of sustainable, durable, and high-quality materials, according to Forbes, and many firms are attempting to bridge the gap between fashion and innovative-functional designs. Gap, which owns both Old Navy and Athleta, is far from the only shop reaping the benefits of athleisure, which is more properly described as a category of clothes that can be worn for both sports activities and casual wear.

During the pandemic, customers were drawn to loungewear like leggings, pajama sets, and other comforting alternatives. The Old Navy store reshuffled its store layout to accommodate this trend, placing those items right at the door. Major companies are introducing new goods with stretchy fabric that can be worn on a run or to the supermarket to gain a higher market share. Kohl?s unveiled its own active wear brand, FLX, in early 2021, while Target debuted All in Motion, a new workout label, earlier in 2020. People between the age group of 16 and 30 years are the most active athleisure consumers. As fitness is becoming more essential, a slightly older age group also forms a part of the target consumer base. The women?s athleisure products, in particular, have witnessed the most rapid growth.

The overall growth remains robust and is estimated to be 6.9 percent for the full year with real GDP growing

7.7 percent year-on-year during the first three quarters of fiscal year 2022/23. There were some signs of moderation in the second half of FY 22/23. Growth was underpinned by strong investment activity bolstered by the government?s capex push and buoyant private consumption, particularly among higher income earners. Inflation remained high, averaging around

6.7 percent in FY22/23 but the current-account deficit narrowed in Q3 on the back of strong growth in service exports and easing global commodity prices.

The World Bank has revised its FY 23/24 GDP forecast to 6.3 percent from 6.6 percent (December 2022). Growth is expected to be constrained by slower consumption growth and challenging external conditions. Rising borrowing costs and slower income growth will weigh on private consumption growth, and government consumption is projected to grow at a slower pace due to the withdrawal of pandemic- related fiscal support measures.

Although headline inflation is elevated, it is projected to decline to an average of 5.2 percent in FY 23/24, amid easing global commodity prices and some moderation in domestic demand. The Reserve Bank of India?s has withdrawn accommodative measures to rein in inflation by hiking the policy interest rate. India?s financial sector also remains strong, buoyed by improvements in asset quality and robust private- sector credit growth.

The central government is likely to meet its fiscal deficit target of 5.9 percent of GDP in FY 23/24 and combined with consolidation in state government deficits, the general government deficit is also projected to decline. As a result, the debt-to-GDP ratio is projected to stabilize. On the external front, the current account deficit is projected to narrow to

2.1 percent of GDP from an estimated 3 percent in FY 22/23 on the back of robust service exports and a narrowing merchandise trade deficit. (Source: www. worldbank.org)


India?s textiles sector is one of the oldest industries in the Indian economy, dating back to several centuries. The industry is extremely varied, with hand-spun and hand-woven textiles sectors at one end of the spectrum, with the capital-intensive sophisticated mills sector at the other end.

The decentralised power looms/ hosiery and knitting sector form the largest component of the textiles sector. The close linkage of textiles industry to agriculture (for raw materials such as cotton) and the ancient culture and traditions of the country in terms of textiles makes it unique in comparison to other industries in the country.

Domestic consumption for the 2021-22 cotton season is estimated to be at 338 lakh bales. Cotton production in India is projected to reach 7.2 million tonnes (43 million bales of 170 kg each) by 2030, driven by increasing demand from consumers.

Production of fibre in India reached 2.40 MT in FY21 (till January 2021), while for yarn, the production stood at 4,762 million kgs during the same period. India?s textile and apparel exports (including handicrafts) stood at US$ 44.4 billion in FY22, a 41% increase YoY. India?s textile and apparel exports to the US, its single largest market, stood at 27% of the total export value in FY 22. Exports of readymade garments including cotton accessories stood at US$ 6.19 billion in FY 22.

India?s textiles industry has around 4.5 crores employed workers including 35.22 lakhs handloom workers across the country. (Source: www.ibef.org)
