One of the highlights of this year's forum was the Technopak Research Compendium that was released, which showcased some interesting trends. It was observed that even though currently, menswear apparel has a majority share in the Apparel market (43%), women's wear is growing at a higher rate of 12% compared to men's, which is growing at 9%.

Apart from this, kidswear is also growing rapidly with higher growth in girls' wear (11%) than boys' wear (10%).

Speaking at the inaugural session of the 2nd Technopak Leadership Forum, Mr. Arvind Singhal, Chairman, Technopak Advisors highlighted the growth drivers for the industry, “Growth within the industry will be driven by innovation across product, design and brand, channel and also business processes. Further, it is important for the industry to identify and create new mega clusters- Madurai, Mundra, Ambala and Mangalore, having tremendous potential for manufacturing.”

Mr. Singhal further outlined the need for collaborative and more aggressive entrepreneurship, increasing scale through- mergers, acquisitions, divestments and bringing forth positive outlook for the industry to attract the best managerial and operational talent to provide further impetus for growth within the industry.

Addressing the key note at the Technopak forum Mr. Dilip Jiwrajka, Managing Director, Alok Industries Ltd. said, “Private label in the organized retail industry will provide big impetus to the textile industry.
