Cotton will continue to take lead
Cotton is and will continue to dominate as consumers are pretty comfortable and used to cotton. Having said that, polyamide and other synthetic fabrics have also started taking space in India’s intimatewear industry, but the growth is slow as many manufacturers are unable to handle synthetic fabrics well, and hence it still has limited use. But going forward, synthetic fabrics will grow as consumers start experiencing the comfort that these fabrics have to offer. In innerwear, cotton is set to rule in India, as it is cheaper than its alternate modal fibre. In innerwear blends, cotton/ spandex or modal/ cotton will be more in demand.
