This report has a section that discusses how knitwear has become in India the top export earning product since the fiscal year 2008:

“Woven garment once again emerged as the country’s biggest export-earning product in the just-concluded fiscal year (FY) 2014-15, surpassing knitwear items. The sub-sector of the $ 25 billion clothing industry has made a jump, outshining the growth of knit products in the last fiscal as its demand surged due to the GSP (generalised system of preferences) facility offered by the EU, industry people said. Export of woven garment fetched US$ 13.06 billion in FY 2014-15, up by 5.0 per cent as compared to that of the previous fiscal year, according to the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB)”.
