How did you reach the fabric that you are wearing now… Suppose you are wearing a red t-shirt of 100% pure cotton… .so how did it reach you?
Those who do not know may be surprised to know that it started –
- From a seed of a cotton plant or cotton plant, which a farmer sowed in his field.
- Seeds were made… Flowers were made in the plant…. These flowers were collected by machine or hand… They were transported to the factory by transport…. They were processed with many machines… Cotton bails or cotton stacks were made… .which was cleaned And yarn made of yarn with the help of many other machines.
- Then the threads of these threads were dyed with red color… Now weaving these threads horizontally and vertically i.e. weaving the cloth was prepared.
- By designing this fabric as per the direction of the fashion designer… By designing, Taylor prepared 100% pure cotton t-shirt of your red color. The Tshirt prepared by Transport reached different markets, then you went to a similar market and bought that Tshirt from a shop or maybe online portal.
Now all the things which came in the journey from sowing that seed till getting this T-shirt are all a part of textile industry. Also a large part is man made fibers or synthetic fibers, such as Made of fabrics made of nylon, rayon, polyster etc.
Friends, the textile industry is the second largest employment generating industry after agriculture.
💡 This 140 Bn industry provides direct employment to four and a half million (4.5 Cr) people and indirectly to 6 crore people. And that is why it is a very important industry for any government.
How old is the textile industry? History of Textile Industry in Hindi
But the question arises that how did this industry become so big? How did it start? When did humans start making and wearing clothes?
Friends, if we talk about textiles or clothes, then the humans used the skins of animals as clothes.
There is evidence of the presence of woven clothing in the Stone Age.
It has been estimated from many studies that man has been wearing clothes for more than 1 lakh years.
And the fabric stitched needle was invented 50,000 years ago. A needle made of bird bone was discovered from a cave in South Africa.
If we talk about India, in Indus Valley Civilization, which we also call Harappan civilization, people were very developed in terms of textiles. A four and a half thousand year old idol named “Priest King” found in Mohenjodaro has a person wearing a shawl with a flower pan.
That is, the connection between clothes and humans is very old.
But if we talk about modern era when mass production of textile started, it happened in England during the Industrial Revolution.
In the era of the Industrial Revolution, much effort was made to increase production speed through inventions such as the Flying Shuttle, flyer-and-bobbin system in 1733 and roller spinning machines in 1738 by John Wyatt and Lewis Paul. .
Lewis Paul later came up with the carding machine in 1748 and in 1764 the spinning jenny was also developed.
Then in 1784, Edmund Cartwright invented the power loom.
Due to these inventions, in the 18th century, the textile industry became a mainstream industry.
Arrival of textile industry in India
Talking about India, in 1818, the first textile mill of the country was established near Kolkata. But the true cotton textile industry started in the 1850s, when a Parsi cotton merchant established a cotton mill in Bombay in 1854. Gradually, by the year 1900, a total of 178 textile mills started running in many cities of India including Kolkata, Mumbai, Ahmedabad.
Today’s Scenario of Textile Industry in Hindi
Now let’s talk about today. How big is the textile market in India today? Where do we stand in the world and how can we make ourselves stronger in this field.
In 2018, the domestic textiles and apparel industry was worth 140 Bn $, of which 100 Bn $ was consumed only in India and the remaining 40 Bn $ goods were exported worldwide.
Today this industry contributes 2.3% of the total GDP of India. The textile industry alone accounts for 13% of the industrial production in our country and it also has a share of 12% in India’s total exports.
And it is not that the textile and apparel industry is getting stagnate, or it is growing even more strongly.
Its CAGR from 2019 to 2021 (compound annual growth rate) It is expected to remain at 28%. When we talk about global textile market size, it is estimated to reach 1.23 trillion USD by 2025 with 4.24% CAGR.
By 2024-25, the value of our textile exports will reach 300 Bn $.
And in the world market share, we will increase from 5% stake to 15% share.
Perhaps you are wondering how the textile industry will achieve such phenomenal growth?
Think of it like this –
- India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, obviously this will increase people’s income, which will give them the power to spend more on their clothes and apparel.

Cheap and skilled labor
- Apart from this, we have a very large Advantage Skilled and adequate availability of unskilled labor. Which is available at a lower price, which reduces the cost of production and gives us competitive advantage.
- Even if we talk about Government Support, the government has allowed 100% FDI in the textile sector. And ASEAN to increase exports ( Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Free trade with countries is also allowed.
- Also, the government is investing a lot of money in the Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP) and Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme to make the sector even more attractive to private companies and train the work force.
