Based on solid research, Hasan et al. (2017) has an interesting insight to share about India's apparel sector. Notwithstanding the fact that India is among the largest producers and exporters of apparel products, the study suggests that the main reason why the sector has not been up to its potential lies in the firm size distribution which is heavily dominated by small firms. Hasan et al. argue that small firms suffer from a serious lack of scale economies which deprives them of access to modern production and management technologies, and attribute it largely to India's labor regulations and enforcement regime.
