India ranks among the top target countries for any company sourcing textiles and apparel. Indeed, apart from China, no other country can match the size, spread, depth, and competitiveness of the Indian textile and apparel industry. Moreover, the global elimination of quotas at the end of 2004 has greatly enhanced the opportunities for sourcing from India.
This special report focuses on the opportunities which India now offers as a source of textiles and apparel. Based on a detailed examination of the performance of a large number of apparel and home textile products in the US and EU markets in 2005, the report identifies those which offer the greatest scope for sourcing from India.
The report includes profiles of Indian textile and apparel companies which are potential partners for sourcing or collaboration. It also examines the competitiveness of India’s yarn and fabrics industry, identifies opportunities for foreign collaboration, and provides a wealth of statistical data.
