More than half of India’s knitwear exports come from the Tirupur cluster, Asia’s largest textile export centre, and have been impacted by the downturn in its important markets including the US and the European Union (EU). Industry sources reported that the export markets are still boring and have few new orders, but they expressed optimism that by June or July, as the height of the consumer season approaches, the markets may return to normal.

According to preliminary data, Tirupur’s knitwear exports increased merely 2.5% to ‘34,350 crore in FY23, which is lower than both the country’s overall knitwear export growth for the year of 3.76% as well as the historical pattern, with the exception of the pandemic period.In FY23, India exported 63,239 crore worth of knitwear.  he continued, the State.According to K M Subramanian, President of the Tiruppur Exporters Association (TEA), flexible labour laws would help to fulfil the compliances of the overseas purchasers since the buyers are adamant about abiding by local regulations.

As a result of the seasonal nature of the Tiruppur knitwear export industry, TEA has been asking for an increase in the number of hours worked each day and each quarter.

The Tiruppur knitted clothing business will benefit from this business-friendly initiative, he noted.
