Of course India will benefit, because if the US develops a strict stance towards China and India supports China, then exports from India will decline and move towards other countries like Philippines and Cambodia. The FY- 2018-19 will show an above average growth in terms of apparel exports, reason being the industrial output will increase and the concentration of exports and export benefits policies will improve. The biggest challenge will be demand from the US. Sourcing will decline and only grow to 10-12%because of the tax levies. Product categories gaining good demand are natural fabrics and jute bags. We deals in exports of handbags and belts, in cotton and leather.
