What We Do

About the Sector

The Textiles Sector has the second largest share of employment after agriculture. With technological modernization being the key to high industrial growth, labor intensive industries like textiles require not only skilled workforce, but also massive vocational training for skill up gradation of the existing workers engaged in the organized as well as unorganized sectors, (including handlooms, power looms, sericulture, wool, khadi, etc.). The Indian textiles industry is set for strong growth, buoyed by strong domestic consumption as well as export demand.

As indicated in the figure below, textile and apparel trade is expected to grow significantly in this decade.

Increase in Global Textile & Apparel Trade

The skilling requirements in the textile sector emerge from not just India’s leading position as a global player as the second largest exporter of cotton yarn. Skilling requirements also emerge from the changes in the fiber and product mix that is expected in the coming years. The most significant change in the Indian textiles industry has been the advent of man-made fibers (MMF). India has successfully placed its innovative range of MMF textiles in almost all the countries across the globe.

Increase in technical textile production, innovative garment production, etc would also require skilled manpower.
