Powerloom Industry

Powerloom Industry In India

The Powerloom industry has traditionally been a cornerstone of the Indian economy in terms of foreign exchange earnings and employment. Powerlooms contribute around 70 per cent of the total jobs in the textile industry, employing around 6.5 million people. The powerloom industry is equipped with approximately 2.5 million registered looms, which are concentrated in clusters across Erode, Salem, Madurai, Ichalkarnaji, Solapur, Bhiwandi, Bhilwara and Malegaon, among others.

Apart from the US and the EU, which account for about two-thirds of India’s textile exports, China, the UAE, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, the Republic of Korea, Bangladesh, Turkey, Pakistan, and Brazil are some of the major markets for these exports.

Powerloom Development & Export Promotion Council

The Powerloom Development and Export Promotion Council (PDEXCIL) is the nodal agency for the development and promotion of exports of powerloom products. The Council undertakes direct promotional activities such as participation in international trade shows, sending and hosting trade delegations, and sustained image-building exercises through advertisements abroad, publications and audiovisuals.
