Tirupur knitting mills buck the trend
Thursday, 04 April 2013

Tirupur - Mills in Tirupur, often regarded as the knitwear hub of India, have finally reported a growth in exports for a quarterly period following nearly three years of decline.

In 2009-10 and 2010-11, exports dropped by around 20 per cent while in 2011-12, the output was generally flat. Knitwear exporters attributed the five per cent growth during the first three months of 2013 to business from several new markets that have been explored over the last 12 months. These include Japan, South Africa, Israel and South America while there has also been a slight upturn in orders from the US.
