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.
