COMPANY PROFILE

3.1 INDUSTRY PROFILE

The apparel industry in India is one of the most flourishing industries among the other
industries. The domestic apparel industry includes five segments which are the kid’s
apparels, the men’s apparels, the women’s apparels, uniforms and unisex apparels. In
the women’s wear category, the western wears has witnessed a huge demand in the past
few years. Uniforms are among the most demanded products in the men’s segment. This
industry is a capital intensive industry which requires all types of labourers such as
skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled labourers.

Due to recession and slow down of the economy in the previous year, there has been a
substantial decrease in the production and sales of apparels in the country. There are
various institutes that train manpower for the manufacturing process of apparels. The
industry requires skilled labour force for the production of apparels. Unfortunately, it is
quite difficult to find skilled labour force in the country for the apparel industries. The
government has taken various steps to improve the existing condition of the apparel
industry.

The size of India’s textile market as of July 2017 was around US$ 150 billion, which is
expected to touch US$ 250 billion market by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 13.58 per
cent between 2009-2019.

1. Textile Industry

The textile industry is primarily concerned with the design, production


and distribution of yarn, cloth and clothing. The raw material may be natural or

industry along the production and life chain of clothing and garments, starting with the
textile industry (producers of cotton, wool, fur, and synthetic fibre) via fashion industry
