Intra-industry trade in textile industry: the case of India
AbstractIntra-industry trade (IIT) plays a pivotal role in Indian textile industry. It is a new phenomenon. Since 1960, this concept has been used by Pieter Verdoorn and Bela Balassa. The aim of this paper is to measure the level of IIT in Indian textile industry. For this purpose, the Grubelâ€“Lloyd index has been calculated. The analysis is based on annual time series data of export and import. The results reveal that during 1990s, the level of IIT in Indian textile industry was higher, whereas since inception of 21st century it went down. It is due to rise in net export.
