Textiles & Aparel

India is among the ten largest exporters of apparels in the world. India also ranks second in cotton and silk production, while leading the world in jute production. India is one of the cheapest countries in terms of cost competitiveness of the materials.

Odisha has a long history of textile industry. The handlooms of Odisha have gained worldwide acclaim and reputation for design and quality. Various designs have existed in Odisha such as Sambalpuri, Bomkei and Berhampuri. Odisha is also famous for its Ikat type of weaving.

Odisha is planning to setup two textile parks to encourage investments in these regions. These are integrated textile parks with common facilities and infrastructure to support the entire value chain in the sector. With abundance of cotton, the parks will have regular supply of raw materials. The State also proposes to setup cotton processing, spinning and weaving, textile and garment plants for investment across State.

The State has also created provisions for setup of technical textiles manufacturing, made from synthetic fibers for industrial uses, at the PCPIR in Paradip. The IPR identifies textiles as a Priority sector and provides many incentives for the investing units including technical textiles.

Further details and information about the sector and incentives are available in the detailed profile.
