4. Analysis & Review
The Indian textile industry is one the most important industries for the Indian economyconsidering its contribution to employment generation industrial output and foreignexchange earnings. The vast sweep of Indian textile extends from the hand-woven sector onone end to the capital intensive sector on the other. The segments included thedecentralized power looms hosiery and knitting sectors the handlooms and handicraftsegments are also the wide range of fibers which include man-made fiber cotton silk andwool. The industry is the second largest employer after agriculture it accounts for 21per cent of the total employment generated in the economy. This sector is one of thelargest contributors to India's exports with approximately 11 per cent of total exports.The Indian textiles industry currently estimated at around US$ 108 billion is expectedto reach US$ 226 billion by 2023. The Indian Textile Industry contributes approximately 5per cent to India's gross domestic product (GDP) and 14 per cent to overall Index ofIndustrial Production (IIP). Traditionally Indian textile and apparel manufacturingindustries have been cotton focused. Even today cotton has more than a 60 per cent sharecompared to 40 per cent share globally. But this scenario is changing fast. Manufacturersas well as brands are increasingly looking towards man-made fibre options mainlypolyester viscose.
The Indian Textile Industry is set for good growth buoyed by strong domestic demand aswell as export demand availability of raw material skilled workforce excellentinfrastructure facilities and supporting government policies. The Indian textile sector ishighly diverse and has handspun and hand-woven segments at one end of the spectrum andcapital-intensive sophisticated and modern mills on the other. The textile industry isvertically-integrated across the value chain and extends from fibre to fabric to garments.At the same time it is a highly-fragmented sector comprising small-scale non-integratedspinning weaving processing and cloth manufacturing enterprises. Besides that the IndianTextile Sector enjoys a competitive advantage of abundant availability of raw materialssuch as cotton wool silk and jute.
India's textiles products including handlooms and handicrafts are exported to morethan a hundred countries. However the USA and the EU account for about two thirds ofIndia's textiles exports. The other major export destinations are China U.A.E. SriLanka Saudi Arabia Republic of Korea Bangladesh Turkey Pakistan Brazil Hong-KongCanada and Egypt etc.
The Government of India seems committed to developing and sustaining a strong andvibrant textile industry which would contribute significantly to production employmentand skill development thereby promoting economic growth. The Government has taken newinitiatives to make development participative and inclusive in line with the coregovernance philosophy of 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikaas'. As part of the above Government hasapproved the introduction of "Amended Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme-2016-2022(ATUFS) in place of the existing Revised Restructured Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme(RR- TUFS) for technology upgradation of textile industry. The amended scheme would giveboost to "make in India" in textile sector; it is expected to attract investmentto the tune of 1.5 lac crore rupees and create over 30 lakh jobs. The new scheme targetsemployment generation and increase export earnings by encouraging the apparel and garmentindustry. Under the new scheme there will be two broad categories; one for apparelgarment and technical textiles wherein a 15% subsidy will be provided over five years oncapital investment (not exceeding Rs. 30 crore). The second category comprising all theother sub-sectors will get a 10% subsidy (subject to a ceiling of Rs. 20 crore).TheCentral Government extended the 2% export benefit under Merchandise Export from IndiaScheme (MEIS) for more countries with immediate effect. The RBI policies helped containdemand pressures created a buffer against external shocks and kept a check on thevolatility of the rupee and inflation.
Thus the growth and all round development of this industry has a direct bearing on theimprovement of India's economy.
Opportunities & Challenges
Indian textile Industry is set for strong growth buoyed by both strong domesticconsumption as well as export demand. The exports of textile and clothing productsaccount for 35% of the total textile sector in India. A strong raw material productionbase a vast pool of skilled and unskilled personnel cheap labor good export potentialand low import contents are some of the salient features of the Indian textile industry.With the increase in capacities the company will be able to achieve balancing inoperations offering wide product range and broad base its customer profile. We expectgood growth in the demand for our products in the coming years and improvement in themargins of the Company.
The Government supports modernization of the industry with a particular focus onclosing the gaps in the textile value chain and has taken several measures to create thosepositive impulses. But there are still some improvements possible. The industry waits forthe proposed reforms in labour law support to develop a skilled work force and programsto bind talents to be able to translate market needs into quality products.
The threats to the Company's product includes severe competition both in domestic andinternational markets leading to pricing pressures of finished goods inflation foreignexchange fluctuation volatility in input cost cotton crop interest rates power costetc. Government Policies also play major role in the growth of the Industry.
Nevertheless to fully tap the growth opportunities the industry needs to focus onconsolidation and modernization of weaving processing and garmenting capacities to ensureoptimum productivity and improved quality. On part of the government labour laws reformsshould be implemented at the earliest to encourage new investments.
The industry is vulnerable to its overdependence on western markets and had notsufficiently embraced new technology to remain competitive against China Korea andIndonesia. Moreover the textile industry is fiercely competitive and this remains as oneof the major concerns as the threat of competition arises from organized as well asdisorganized sector. Tight fiscal control and extremely low fiscal deficit despite thesituation where oil prices would flluctuate is one of the expectations that seems to beplaying on the minds of textile players. Nevertheless to fully tap the growthopportunities the industry needs to focus on consolidation and modernization of weavingprocessing and garmenting capacities to ensure optimum productivity and improved quality.On part of the government labour laws reforms should be implemented at the earliest toencourage new investments.
As stated above Export sales constitute about 60% of the total revenue during theyear. Apart from fierce competition from China Korea and Indonesia the volatility ofrupee vis a vis US dollars is a major business risk as all export invoices are issued inUS Dollars. This is sought to be overcome by appropriate forward contracts.
The Company is exposed to the risk of raw material prices of Polyester Viscose P/Vblended yarn Silk and Wool. The Company hedges this risk by purchasing the required rawmaterial at the time of booking of sales contracts. Also this risk is being managed by wayof inventory management and forward booking.
HUMAN RESOURCES RISK
Retaining the existing talent pool and attracting new manpower are major risks. TheCompany hedges this risk by setting benchmark of the best HR practices and carrying outnecessary improvements to attract and retain the best talent. The Company has initiatedvarious measures such as rollout of strategic talent management system training andintegration of learning activities.
The Board of Directors is well aware of these risks and through the operationalmanagement continues to monitor them and guides in taking prompt action to mitigate therisks.
