With India facing several odds can we expect its textiles and apparel exports to do better in the US market? If statistics is to be believed, apparel exports have posted a healthy growth in the first five months of 2018 (January-May) over the same period last year. Apparel is the most important item in the country’s export basket. What is more, India has even overtaken China on the export front during the same period. A further encouraging development is that India’s apparel exports have been higher than the total exports of this product by all countries to the US. So, the performance is rather creditable, aided by the economic recovery in the US.
