When we think of China, what comes upper most in our mind in the textile and clothing sector is its dominance over the global apparel trade. It currently holds a share of 35 per cent in this segment compared to India’s just 5 per cent. China’s share is expected to come down due to domestic pull in demand. What is more, China has already ventured into the manufacturing of high end man-made fabric based textiles and apparel to grab a big share in the global market. On the other hand, India is mostly cotton based textiles for export and its presence in the synthetic segment in the global market is insignificant.
