Shein’s Return to India? Yes, you heard that right! Shein, a well-known Chinese fast-fashion brand, is resurfacing in the Indian market. Through an exciting licensing arrangement with Mukesh Ambani‘s Reliance Industries Ltd. The rigorous terms of the agreement have a clear objective of restructuring India’s apparel industry and strengthening its manufacturing capacity.
Reliance Takes the Lead As Shein’s Return to India
As per the stringent agreement, Reliance Industries’ retail division will fully own Shein’s domestic company in India. This solidifies Reliance’s pivotal role as the driving force behind Shein’s return to the Indian market.
Shein and Reliance go beyond mere ownership; they form a partnership where Shein, a Singapore-based company, provides vital assistance and training to over 25,000 small and mid-sized local suppliers. This collaboration equips these suppliers with the necessary tools to produce Shein-branded products for the Indian market and global distribution.
By teaming up with Reliance Industries, Shein taps into India’s substantial consumer base. And also the country’s growing demand for fast-fashion items. This strategic move allows Shein to leverage India’s market potential and establish a significant presence in the world’s most populous nation.

Furthermore, the licensing deal aims to increase the proportion of products manufactured in India and sold on Shein’s platform. Estimations suggest that with the support and training provided by Shein, Indian manufacturers have the potential to fulfill a quarter of Shein’s global demand. This remarkable achievement is projected to generate an export value of approximately 500 billion rupees ($6.1 billion) from India.
India’s Manufacturing Ambitions
A key component of the agreement is the Indian government’s emphasis on manufacturing independence and data security. India hopes to become a significant manufacturing center by working with Shein and lessen its dependency on Chinese supply networks. The alliance’s strategic significance perfectly fits Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s ambition to quadruple yearly shipments to $2 trillion by the end of the decade.
So get ready for an exhilarating fashion extravaganza! Brace yourself, because Shein Returns to India in July 2023. The countdown has begun, and the excitement is reaching fever pitch as fashion enthusiasts eagerly await the grand relaunch.
