According to the Department of Handloom and Textiles, Government of Tamil Nadu, the retail sales turnover for the last fiscal grew by 26 percent from 2009-10's Rs. 1.567 billion to Rs. 1.997 billion. This does not include sales made to refugees from Sri Lanka during 2009-10, but includes exports worth Rs. 18.1 million clocked during the last fiscal.

Co-optex, during the last fiscal, introduced 3,534 new designs and organized about 22 trade expositions, which tapped a total sales turnover of Rs. 27.4 million.

For fiscal 2011-12, Co-optex is planning to shift its focus on readymade shirts, churidars, home textile items and kurta materials.

At Kurinjipadi and Thiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu, two major textile clusters are being developed at a total cost of Rs. 20 million, in addition to 10 mini clusters that are being developed with a total outlay of six million rupees per cluster.

The Central Government has also accorded its approval for a mega handloom cluster at Virudhunagar.
