MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS:
Indian economy has continued to consolidate the gains achieved in restoringmacroeconomic stability. Inflation fiscal deficit and current account deficit havedeclined rendering India a relative haven of macro stability in these turbulent times.Economic growth appears to be recovering albeit at varying speeds across sectors. TheIndian economy expanded 7.3% in FY 15-16 marginally higher than 6.9% recorded in theprevious year. This demonstrates a soft recovery; and is expected to grow 7.6-80% in2016-17. In this context it is pertinent to mention that over the years India has becomeincreasingly entwined with the world. The result is that if global growth lurches intomore crises India's growth may be seriously affected for the correlation between globaland Indian growth is growing significantly.
While public investment and urban consumption were the major drivers of growth in FY2015 a revival of private investment and rurai consumption is critical if growth is toremain strong in FY 2016 and FY 2017 given the likely sluggish recovery in the advancedeconomies and the anemic outlook for global trade. A good monsoon after 2 years ofdrought will certainly be a key factor in uplifting the Indian Economy to a highertrajectory.
The Government of India under the Make in India initiative is trying to give boost tothe contribution made by the manufacturing sector and aims to take it up to 25 per cent ofthe GDP. India's textiles sector is one of the oldest industries in Indian economy datingback several centuries. Even today textiles sector is one of the largest contributors toIndias exports with approximately 11 per cent of total exports. The textilesindustry is also labour intensive and is one of the largest employers.
The Indian textiles industry currently estimated at around US$ 108 billion isexpected to reach US$ 223 billion by 2021. The industry is the second largest employerafter agriculture providing employment to over 45 million people directly and 60 millionpeople indirectly. The Indian Textile Industry contributes approximately 5 per cent toIndias gross domestic product (GDP) and 14 per cent to overall Index of IndustrialProduction (IIP). India is now a fast emerging market inching to reach half a biilionmiddle income population by 2030. Ail these factors are good for the Indian textileindustry in a long run.
The future looks bright for the Indian textile and apparel industry. There are positivedrivers which indicate future growth opportunities. There is plenty of cotton with a goodpotential for higher yield. There is the chance to produce yarn instead of exportingcotton. There is growing export as well as domestic market demand. The Government supportsmodernization of the industry with a particular focus on closing the gaps in the textilevalue chain
Indias textile industry (worth around US$ 108 biilion) contributes 4% toIndias GDP and constitutes 13% of the countrys export earnings. It is thesecond largest employer after agriculture employing over 45 million people directly and60 million people indirectly. The industry contributes approximately 14% to the overallIndex of Industrial Production (l!P).
The Indian textiles industry is set for strong growth buoyed by both strong domesticconsumption as well as export demand. India has historically had a strongtextile-industrial culture and a well-developed and mature textile industry that has beenthe back-bone of the economy. With the rise of strong textile exports over the last threedecades India is today among the leading producers of textiles in the world. Howeverdespite this growth India is not the lowest cost producer of textiles and lacks thebenefit of scale economies especially when compared to China Bangladesh Vietnam andCambodia in an environment of volatility and intensified global competition where pricecontinues to dominate due to high inflation high interest rates and high labour costwhich is affecting profitability of Indian textile industries. The sharp rise inenergy/fuel price is another major concern faced by Indian textile Industry today as wel!as years to come. The future for the Indian Textile Industry looks promising. Withconsumerism and disposable income on the rise the retail sector has experienced a rapidgrowth in the past decade. Indias growing population has been a key driver oftextile consumption growth in the country. Changing lifestyle rising incomes andincreasing demand for quality products are set to fuel demand for Indian Textile productsacross the globe.
