Textiles are the backbone of the industrial economy in India, with nearly 30% of the country’s $4.5 trillion annual GDP.
But unlike cars and other goods, textiles have struggled to make inroads in the world.
The textile industry is an important part of India’s economy and is a major source of employment for the majority of its 2.3 billion people.
But that’s changing.
In the past few years, India has seen a surge in the number of textile factories in the country, as well as a boom in the textile production of low-income families.
Now, the country is poised to witness a new era in textile manufacturing: the industrialization of low wage, low-skill work.
“The industrialization is going to take place through a variety of factors,” said Abhishek Prasad, chief executive officer of the National Centre for Textiles (NCST).
The rise in the growth of low skill manufacturing in India has resulted in the introduction of new tools for manufacturing textiles, said Prasan.
These include robots, computerized systems, automation and robotics.
“The textile industry will be a key sector in the industrial revolution, said Sharmila Devi, co-founder of the NGO Indian Textile Workers Federation.
“In the next five years, the textile industries will be very large and there will be significant change in the manufacturing structure of the textile sector.””
It is a trend we are going to see in the next few years,” Prasansaid.
“In the next five years, the textile industries will be very large and there will be significant change in the manufacturing structure of the textile sector.”
Prasan said the textile mills have experienced massive expansion in recent years.
He said the growth has been driven by the adoption of automation and the growing use of robots in the industry.
“A lot of the work done in the mills is done by a robot.
Robots are also a way of getting rid of people.
They can do this through a computer, and a computer can do a lot of things,” Pransan said.
“There is a need for automation.”
Robots can also help to cut down on waste.
“Robots are able to process large amounts of material quickly,” Prasing said.
The use of automation has also led to a decrease in the cost of production, which can reduce the number or even the size of the factories.
“We have to be aware of this shift.
It is very challenging for us to have a high-tech, low cost industry,” Prasin said.
But with increased demand for low-cost apparel and other low-wage work, textile mills are looking to hire more low- and middle-skill workers.
Prasans industry, for example, has a massive workforce of around 2,500 workers, mostly in the textiles sector.
“In the textile and apparel sector, you are going from an area of about 100,000 people to about 3,000, 4,000 to 5,000 workers.
And these are people who are part of the fabric of the economy, and they will also have to support the other people who will be involved in the production,” Prasesaid.
While textile workers make up around 2% of India and employ a large number of people, they account for nearly half of the total workforce in the sector.
These people work in the factories, at the textile mills and in the apparel industry.
Prasing added that India is looking to automate the textile process to a much higher degree than it is in the United States, where the vast majority of textile workers are employed by the textile manufacturers.
In the U.S., the textile factories are run by large, global conglomerates, like United States Steel, United States Textile, General Mills and Kimberly-Clark.
The textiles and apparel industries in India are run largely by small, local producers, Prasing added.
