After India’s agricultural sector, the textile manufacturing and the textile processing industry in India are one of the few sectors to generate skilled and unskilled employment in vast numbers. The textile industry renders direct employment to more than 35 million people and continues to be India’s second biggest sector when to it comes to generating new jobs for its countrymen.
As of 2016, India holds the number one OEKO-TEX® TEXTILE ranking for jute production. The garment manufacturers in India are not too far behind either, with the country capturing a lion’s share of 63% of the global textile and garment markets. Today, we are counted amongst the top favourite markets for apparel retailers, thanks to AT Kearney’s ‘Retail Apparel Index’ which ranked India as the fourth most promising market for apparel retailers in 2009.
Since the opening of global trade in India in the early 1990s, plenty of major foreign textile companies have entered the Indian markets and have invested significantly or are working in the country. Brands like Marks & Spencer, Zara, Soktas, Zambiati, Bilsar, Benetton, Levi’s and Promod are doing business in India through a unique and symbiotic relationship with Indian textile manufactures and the Indian textile processing industry.
India is the world’s largest raw jute and jute good producer, and it is the second largest producer of fibre in the world; the main fibre produced being cotton. Cotton is majorly produced, as 60 percent of the textile industry is based on cotton, while silk, jute, wool and man-made fibres are other fibres that are being produced in the country.
The need for clothes is not limited to just the common people of India; the demand for specialised clothing materials and garments is increasing steadily across India. Blended and stylised fabrics are used to create industry-specific corporate wear, school uniforms, industrial ensembles and many other such specialised clothing. Security uniform manufacturers in India are experiencing rising demands for specialised security apparels that can fulfil the specific needs of the profession.
Whether one needs it for workplace appearance or be it combat duty, specialised security apparel is a must. Safety uniforms are must-haves if you’re working in a construction zone, or any environment involving hazardous chemicals, etc. The overalls you will find in the market today are designed to ensure maximum safety for your body.
