Denims & Jeans show was held in Bangalore, September 25 to 26, 2017.
It was a success. Top players of the denim industry including retailers, exporters, garment producers, brands, distributors and importers participated in very good numbers as well as many overseas visitors.
Each of the seminars was visited by an audience of over 300 people. Closing time of the show on both days had to be extended.
India is a bigger consumer market than the US or Europe today. It is growing at a fast pace as in four years Indian consumers are expected to be consuming more than 900 million jeans–while US or European markets are likely to continue to be saturated. This will bring great opportunities for the entire supply chain.
Trends emanating out of the Indian market might be taken up globally. The Indian denim industry has great growth potential and Indian talent has been the force behind developments taking place in many countries today. Due to support from the government and more streamlined tax structures such talent might be further poured into innovation and enterprises of the country.
Some countries in Asia may turn into net importers in the coming decade as countries like India would be importing more fabric and probably jeans than they are exporting due to the increased local jeans consumption.
