Though there is currently a small decline in the overall exports of Indian MMF textiles to UAE, this is a market of textiles/clothing, which cannot be ignored by any companies ---- desiring to sell their products for ensuring further expansion of their export-trade abroad. UAE is also a potential market for other textile products like Cotton, Apparels, Silk, etc. UAE around US$ 16.76 billion of various textile products during 2015. However, Indian share in UAE’s total imports of textiles and clothing is only 27% - amounting to US$ 4.52 billion. Hence, there is substantial scope for all segments of Indian textiles to further increase their market shares in UAE.

The proposed event is expected to further enhance our market share in UAE’s total import of textiles and clothing and give further boost to already growing exports.
