India's carpet export increases by 22 percent to $3.60 million in June year-on-year owing to good orders from US and Europe. In June 2009, exports were recorded at $2.94 million.

As per OP Garg, Chairman, Carpet Export Promotion Council (CEPC), apart from the US and Europe, carpet industry is also receiving good amount of orders from the Middle East and Latin America.

More so, Garg also stated that, for 2010-11, carpet exports would rise by around 25 percent to $650 million from $525 million recorded in the same period, last year.

The categories that recorded growth were handmade and synthetic carpets, which have increased by more than 94 percent, followed by handmade woolen carpets, rugs, druggets and handmade silk carpets.
