The global economic environment in recent years has been challenging and marked byincreasing volatility and uncertainty. This year the industry has been slow in terms ofexport growth mainly due to recession in global economy. The outward shipments were alsoon the decline due to steep fall in shipment of petroleum products and engineering goodsamid tepid global demand.

Indian markets suffer on two fronts namely high tariff and weak euro currency. In theEuropean market we have to compete with Portugal. Romania and Slovakia on cost andlogistic factors. The European exporters have advantage over us while the Indian suppliershave to adjust the cost price according to prevailing currency. In export market there istough competition from Indonesia Bangladesh. Vietnam and Thailand on tariff.

In the domestic market the industry has had to face some repercussions due to somestringent legislative moves which have affected the raw material supply and toughcompetition from cheap imports while in the International market the industry has hadtough time matching the prices due to fall in currency values.

The decline that is registered is due to a combination of factors like the decreasingdemand in major producing countries global price reduction recession etc. In case ofFootwear components the decline may be attributed to fall in exports of shoe uppers toEurope on account of establishment of integrated production facilities in Eastern Europeand revival of production in Portugal & Spain.


The Company shall look for opportunities to revive its operation and check itsfeasibility under current scenario of the Company. For which it is constantly trying tostart its main operations and thus management expects and hopes that from FY 2017-18Company will be able to generate income from operation.
