Top 10 Textile Companies in India

In the present article, I am going to discuss about top 10 textile companies in India. I have ranked the companies on the basis of their total sales in the 2019. Seeing the overall trends in the industry, there is no doubt that India is losing its market share. I have been closely associated with the textile industry for over 20 years. Possessed with unique knowledge of the industry, I am aware of the worldwide dominant trends in textile. Of the total 20 years of my work experience, for five years I have worked as an instrumentation engineer in an oxygen plant manufacturing company.

Here, I learned to design and fabricate nitrogen plant company with world-class specifications and standards. The experience gave me an excellent grounding in designing of industrial machinery. And the same experience I used in the designing and making textile making machinery.

Coming back to the scenario of textile industry, the situation of textile industry in India is not in good shape. Although China continues to lose market share but India has not able to capitalize on it. It was the perfect opportunity for India to upgrade and capture the market. Instead, it was Bangladesh and Vietnam that gained the losing Chinese market share. Our industry is mostly cotton-based. The industry needs inventive reforms both technologically and from the perspective of labor as well.
