The garment industry plays a pivotal role in developing a country's economy in terms of revenue generation and creation of employment.
The industry is undergoing a drastic change due to global sourcing and high level of price competition. The fashion industry encompasses a wide variety of garments and uses almost every type of textile manufactured. It is generally subdivided into two categories: clothing for men and boys and clothing for women and girls.
Economically, the apparel industry is a key segment for investments, revenue, trade, and employment worldwide despite changes in how garments are produced and made available to consumers.
