Silk Industry In India

The Indian silk industry is one of the largest generators of employment and foreign exchange for the country. India enjoys a unique global position in terms of producing all the commercially useful varieties of silk. The readymade garments of silk formed the largest segment, generating around 58 per cent of the export earnings from silk, while natural silk yarn, fabrics and made-ups accounted for around 38 per cent of the silk export earnings. In 2014-15, India exported readymade garments of silk worth US$ 311.53 million.

The US and the UAE are the major export destinations for Indian silk goods. The UK, France, Italy, Germany and China are the other major export destinations. The segments that are exported in the silk sector include natural silk yarns, fabrics, made-ups, readymade garments, silk carpets and silk waste.

The Indian Silk Export Promotion Council (ISEPC) has initiated programmes for the growth and development of the silk industry. ISEPC organises trade shows and fairs across the world to promote trade with different countries. The council also facilitates meetings between exporters and potential customers.
