The per capita consumption of textiles in India grew by more than 5 percent to 25.93 metres in 2012, compared to the previous year, according to a survey conducted by the Textile Committee, Business Standard reports quoting PTI.
 
The survey ‘Markets for Textile and Clothing: National Household Survey 2013’ collected textile purchase information on a bi-monthly basis for 2011 and 2012 from 13,280 households spread across 252 rural and 105 urban centres in the country.
 
For estimating the total consumption of textiles, the committee took India’s population in 2012 as 1.22 billion, living in 248.7 million households. Based on this, the committee arrived at a figure of 31.636 billion metres as the total textile consumption by Indian populace in 2012.
 
The survey showed that average per head consumption of textiles grew by 5.87 percent year-on-year in quantitative terms in 2012.
 
However, the increase was much more in monetary terms, as consumption jumped by 16.69 percent to Rs. 2,862.87 over the previous year’s use of textiles worth Rs. 2,473.64.
 
From 2000 to 2012, the average purchase of all textiles by Indian citizens saw a growth of 76 percent in quantitative terms and 138 percent in value, the survey showed.
 
The CAGR of the average purchase of all textiles during 2000 to 2012 worked out to 4.54 percent and 10.67 percent in terms of quantity and value, respectively.
 
In terms of rural-urban divide, the consumption of all textiles from rural areas constituted 62.5 percent of the total consumption with the urban accounting for the remaining 37.5 percent. However, the per capita consumption was greater in urban areas at 31.2 metres compared to consumption of 23.54 metres in rural areas.
