Solapur in India’s Maharashtra state aims to be the world's uniforms sourcing hub by 2022, with plans of 2,000 garment units in the city, according to Solapur Garment Manufacturers Association president Darshan Kochar. He was speaking before the third edition of the 'Uniform, Garment and Fabric Manufacturing Fair 2019' from January 8 to 10 in Bengaluru.

The uniform-manufacturing sector market size in India is estimated to be ₹18,000 crore per annum, with ₹10,000 crore from machinery and fabrics while the rest is from sales supplying to local schools through retailers and institutions.

Well-connected across the country with rail and road networks and airports in Mumbai, Pune and Hyderabad, Solapur has emerged as the investment destination in the state for the uniform garment industry in the country, a news agency report quoted Kochar as saying.

The three-day fair promoted Solapur and Maharashtra as the uniforms sourcing hub.

Many overseas buyers from the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia have shown interest in our uniforms, he said. Kochar. Buyers from the United States, Dubai, Ghana, Malaysia, Nepal, Nigeria, Oman, Qatar, Senegal, Sri Lanka and Vietnam participated in the event. (DS)
