Carpet Industry in India
This present carpet industry in India took birth because of the Mughal Dynasty. They introduced Persian and Turkish weavers in the country for the production of carpets for their palaces. On the downfall of this dynasty, the practice of carpet weaving shook badly. However, it picked up the momentum in the form of independent units during post-British period. Now the industry is glowing with its utmost glory from the states of Rajasthan, Kashmir, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, and Himachal Pradesh.
Today, carpet exports have continued to show a steep rise. According to an article by Indian Brand Equity Foundation, India accounts for 61 per cent of the global loom age, 22 per cent of the global spindle age, 12 per cent of the world's production of textile fibers & yarn and 25 per cent share in the total world trade of cotton yarn. Exports of carpets have increased from US$ 654.32 million in 2004-05 to US$ 930.69 million in 2006-07, showing a growth rate of 42.23 per cent. During April-October 2007, carpet exports totalled US$ 404.74 million. This makes India the world leader in carpet exports with 36 per cent of the global market share.
Indian carpets are famous and known worldwide for its magnificent designs and heart-winning workmanship. Hand-knotted woollen carpets, tufted woollen carpets, chain stitch rugs, pure silk carpets, staple/synthetic carpets, handmade woollen durries are some of the floor covering types for which there is a huge market demand in the European and American market.

The Indian carpet industry is very vibrant and has considerable potential for growth. However, lesser innovation techniques, outdated technology, labour law issues and lack of infrastructural facilities in some of the rural areas are major barriers that make this industry less competent as compared to other carpet supplying countries.

Owing to these factors, the Indian government has established Carpet Export Promotion Council of India (CEPC) to promote the exports of hand knotted carpets and other floor coverings. It provides the necessary assistance to the Indian exporters, identifies the markets, provides financial and marketing assistance, sponsors participation in fairs and exhibitions and also conducts publicity abroad.
