With a total export of $44.4 billion in FY22 and more start-ups disrupting the value chain, India today is the second largest textile and clothing exporter. It is set to become a global market leader. Given the importance attached, it is believed this can be achieved. The increased budgetary allocation this year shows the significance the government attaches. For the year 2023-24, the total grant for textiles is fixed at Rs 4,389.34 crores which is about 22.6% higher than the revised budget grant for 2022-23. Incidentally, the ongoing China-US bilateral conflicts and buyers reducing dependency on China present opportunities for manufacturing nations such as India, Bangladesh, and Vietnam.

Shailesh Chaturvedi, MD and CEO, Arvind Fashions, and chairman of the 22nd India Fashion Forum (IFF) believes that India’s highly fragmented fashion industry with very few 1000 Cr+ brands indicates a massive opportunity to build brands at scale. However, he cautions that it should not come at the expense of profitability.
