Top Export Markets For India’s Textile Machinery Commodities

Vietnam is booming market for India’s textile machinery
Vietnam, which was the fifth largest export market of India’s textile machinery commodities in Q1 for this fiscal year has turned the tables in the Q2 making itself the top export market. Exports to Vietnam totalled to US$ 17.41 million in Q2 with growth of 43.29% over the previous quarter and 154.16% over CPLY and stakes 8% share only from the total textile machinery exports of India.

Spinning, twisting and yarn preparation machines were the most exported commodity to Vietnam in the quarter with an export value of US$ 13.85 million in Q2 FY 18-19 with a growth of 32% over the previous quarter and 189% over CPLY.

With the country’s workforce growing annually, Vietnamese workers are inexpensive, young, and, increasingly highly skilled. Many major brands have invested in the country and are outsourcing their manufacturing from Vietnam. With TPP and other preferential trade agreements in place, rules of origin come into play strongly in Vietnam, pushing up investments in its primary textile sector. Vietnam will become a much larger market in the coming months, as it becomes an important apparel supplier to the world markets.
