Apparel/Textile Export Promotion Council License (TEXPROCIL)

For any nation’s economic growth, Exports play a vital role. Export creates more employment opportunities, increase in foreign remittances, lesser current account deficit and robust overall economic growth. Textile export has been an important part of the Indian economy and it is the nation's oldest sector. Moreover, the industry is varied and there is a huge scope of Textile Industry in India as well as around the globe.

From hand-spun and hand-woven textiles to synthetic fibers, the demand of textiles products around the globe is increasing tremendously.

By 2029, it is anticipated that the Indian textiles market would be valued more than US$ 209 billion. The largest producer of cotton in the world is India.

360.13 lakh bales were produced during the crop year of October 2021 to September 2022.

Despite the pandemic, India's domestic textile exports expanded at a robust rate of 9% in FY21. In the fiscal year 2020-21, India exported 1.13 million tonnes of cotton yarn.

Hence, businesses in the textile sector looking for export or exporters and merchants must get the textiles export promotion council license and reap the benefits of this current opportunity.
