Synthetic and Rayon Textiles

Last Updated: August, 2015


India has a diverse and rich textile tradition. Contemporary Indian textiles not only reflect the country’s rich and splendid past but also cater to the demands of the modern day.

Today, India is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of man-made textiles. Indian fabrics are known for their excellent workmanship, colours and durability. Due to heavy investments in world-class manufacturing plants, continuous innovation, new product mix and strategic market expansion, Indian man-made fibres (MMF) are set to take centre stage in the global arena.


  • Polyester is the largest segment of the Indian MMF and rayon textile industry.
  • In 2014–15, fabrics were the largest product category, accounting for 37 per cent of the total exports.
  • Indian exports MMF textiles to more than 146 countries.
  • The top 10 markets accounted for 51 per cent of India’s exports in 2014–15.
  • During 2014–15, the leading market for India’s MMF textile exports was the UAE, with an export of US$ 719.28 million. Turkey emerged as the second-largest market, and the neighbouring country, Bangladesh, emerged as the fourth-largest market. Other high-growth markets were the US, Brazil, UK, Egypt, Pakistan, Germany, Afghanistan, etc.


The Synthetic and Rayon Textiles Export Promotion Council (SRTEPC) was set up in 1954 to extend all possible assistance to Indian exporters of synthetic and rayon textiles and to overseas buyers with business in India.

Exports of Indian MMF textiles during April-November 2014-15 were US$ 3.4 billion against US$ 3.2 billion during the same period of the previous year.
