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.

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.

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.
