The introduction of machines in the garment industry has had a significant impact on the need for workers. In the past, most garments were made by hand. However, the development of sewing machines and other machines has made it possible to produce garments much more quickly and efficiently. This has led to a decrease in the need for manual labor in the garment industry.
Currently, the impact of computerized machines and robotics on the garment industry has been felt most acutely in developing countries. In these countries, the garment industry is a major source of employment for women and young people. However, as machines and computers become more sophisticated, they are able to do more and more of the work that was once done by hand. This has led to a exponential decline in the number of jobs available in the garment industry in developing countries.
As AI, along with computerized machines, become more sophisticated, they will continue to displace workers in the garment industry at an exponential rate. There will be a time when humans will not be needed at all for making clothes. The loss of jobs will need to be addressed by the governments since unemployment will increase exponentially as well.
