"However, textiles and apparel companies need not lose hope and need to develop strategies to prepare themselves for when the markets open again, hopefully well in time before the festive season," write B Prakash and Swati Jain in an article Close Quarters published in May 2020 edition of Fibre2Fashion.

Manufacturers need to maximise their internal capabilities and focus on building their efficiencies. This will enable them to work with the anticipated shorter lead times and tight margins.
"India has the capacity and competence to gain share in its core cotton-based categories and women’s fashionwear categories with value addition (embroidery, schiffli, etc). It will be crucial to focus on manufacturing excellence and improve cost-competitiveness to ward off business risk from other manufacturing nations," write the authors.
