Trade Competitiveness of India’s Textile and Apparel Sector

An analysis of the trade competitiveness of India’s man-made fibre-based textile and apparel sector, based on the Index of Revealed Comparative Advantage, Trade Intensity Index, and Export Similarity Index, for the period 2010–19, revealed that India has a significant advantage in man-made yarns, fibres and technical textiles. A survey of the top 10 export markets indicates that India enjoys a comparative advantage in 53 of 319 products. India has a high trade intensity with the United States and United Kingdom in fabric, apparels, made-ups (including carpets), and technical textiles (including non-woven). Further, India does not face high export competition in this sector.
