Low demand in EU, US impacts India's apparel exports
06
Aug '12
Low demand in the US and European markets is having an adverse impact on India’s apparel exports, which dipped to US$ 1.1 billion in June 2012, a fall of 10.5 percent compared to apparel exports of US$ 1.2 billion in June 2011, the Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) statistics show.
 
According to AEPC, demand in the US and European markets is moving sluggishly as buyers are restricting their orders and are avoiding building up inventories. 
 
Indicative of a year-on-year fall of 12 percent, the country’s apparel exports for first quarter of the current fiscal plummeted to US$ 3.2 billion.
 
Due to sluggish growth in the major western markets, Indian exporters are now trying to reduce their reliance on these markets, and are hence exploring newer markets like Russia, South Africa and Israel.
 
With a year-on-year rise of 18 percent, India’s apparel exports for 2011-12 grew to US$ 13.6 billion.
 
About 65 percent of India’s apparel exports are normally destined towards the US and Europe.
