Due to certain competitive reasons, India is a better sourcing choice compared to other Asian countries.In this article, we are shedding some light on the benefits that sourcing from India has to offer.
India is now a Leading Supplier of Sustainable Textiles
Over the past couple of years, India’s production of eco-friendly and sustainable products particularly in textiles and apparel has boomed. India is also the largest producer of organic cotton and has over 1,254 Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified facilities. Since the “Green Movement” is on the rise and customers today want sustainable products, Indian suppliers can help you comply with eco-friendly policies and ethics.
Another great thing that makes India a competitive sourcing choice is the strong technical and engineering capabilities of its suppliers. Indian engineers are known for innovation and the overall workforce is skilled contributing to higher quality production runs. Indian factories are capable of catering to large orders with minimum turnaround time.
MOQ is the lowest set amount of stock that the supplier is willing to sell. International suppliers have set an MOQ on many of their products and don’t cater to orders that fall below it. Larger MOQs can be a major disappointment for small businesses. Coming from our experience, we can comfortably tell you that Indian suppliers generally have lower MOQ requirements compared to other countries such as China and Vietnam.
Less Communication Problems
One of the major problems that make international sourcing a little risky is the language barrier. Hindrance in communication gaps can cause havoc. Another great thing about India is that English is the country’s second official language. A good percentage of the country’s population can speak and understand English making your job a lot easier.
The Relationship Between Indian and the United States is Cordial
The disruption in supply chains due to political tension between the two countries can cause serious consequences for your supply chains.
