The Indian apparel market, valued at $40 billion in 2020, is headed towards $135 billion by 2025, silently securing a 4.6 percent share in the vast global textile and apparel trade. In this unassuming climb, India proudly claims the title of the world's third-largest exporter of textiles and apparel.
