How to scale up textile business in India

Textile industry is one of the most prominent industries in India. It has made great contributions to the Indian economy in recent times, contributing to about 2 percent to the GDP of the country. India being the sixth largest exporter of textiles and apparels in the world, now is the time than any to scale up your textile business in India.

Having set up your business, there are certain important things you need to bring your business the recognition and revenue it deserves. Here’s how you can get started:

Giving your customers the freedom to choose from not only different qualities of fabrics but also from wide varieties in terms of patterns, finish and services, can surely help your business stand out from the competition.

In the current textile business scenario, the customers are offered limited choices in terms of prices, since these prices are being offered by the traders and not directly by the mills. This is one of the reasons behind the fragmented nature of the industry. Hence, maintaining transparency in terms of price and quality is of a lot of value.

Branching out from the previous point, providing the customers the agency to track their orders play a huge role in building trust between your business and the customer. It also eliminates the hustle of constant communication.

The customers often get attracted to credit which is offered at lower interest rates than that of the market. While the market gives credit on interest rates ranging from 2–2.5%, offering them lower interest rates can be a distinct advantage. Read on to find out how.

The number of your customers, the export and buying houses, will grow very slowly unless you gain access to a bigger network of customers putting their order in one place for the supplier with the best price to take. A network like this can level up your business almost instantly.

The customers are often faced with the problem of prompt responses from their logistics partner. They can not only track the orders but also cannot hold one person accountable due to numerous touch points in the supply chain.

While the above suggestions are easier said than done, the first question that you would ask is HOW? How do you find a network that would highlight your business in front of your customers? How do you provide credit to your customers at interest rates lower than that of the market? How do you allow your customers to track their orders?
