TEXTILE CLOTHING AND FIBRE INDUSTRY GLOBAL SCENARIO

The world has been fighting the Covid-19 pandemic for more than a year now and thestruggle has had deleterious economic effects. In 2020 the global economy contracted by3.3% the largest contraction on record at least since World War-II. Much of it wasconcentrated in the first half of our financial year 2020-21 as several countriesenforced strict lockdowns. Economies bounced back - albeit at differentiated speeds - insubsequent quarters on the back of large fiscal stimulus packages especially in thedeveloped countries restocking demand after dilution of lockdowns and improvedconfidence levels following the start of vaccination programmes.

As per the recent forecasts from International Monetary Fund (IMF) the US and Chinaare expected to record a strong recovery in 2021 resulting in a net positive expansion oftheir economies over the 2019 levels. These two engines of growth are expected to boostdemand for exports from other countries. But Europe and Japan are projected to see only apartial recovery and will possibly fail to erase their last year's contraction in thecurrent year. In response to the pandemic central banks resorted to strongly supportivemonetary policies in most developed economies causing interest rates to go down to recordlows. At the same time another consequence of this policy has been a surfeit ofliquidity. That has led to a strong rally in prices of many industrial commodities whichhas also been supported by the evolving economic recovery stimulus-related demandexpectations and certain supply-side disruptions. This has caused inflationary pressureson the cost dynamic of several manufacturing industries. The latest IMF forecast suggestsa strong 6% growth in global GDP in 2021. But the occurrences of second and third waves ofCovid-19 in different parts of the world and reports of virus mutations have createddownside risks to the outlook of a strong growth rebound. Recovery remains uneven anduncertain with the extent of fiscal support and level of vaccination being keydifferentiators of the short-term economic outlook across countries.

GOVERNMENT POLICES-TEXTILE SECTOR

The Government is active to industry expectations to avail of un-interrupted benefitsunder the Foreign Trade Policy 2015-20 which has now been extended till March 2021. Asthe spread of Corona Virus is picking up speed Government is not only preparing thestrategies to combat COVID-19 but also effectively plan for life after the virus. IMF hasalready suggested that one of the measures to fight against COVID-19 must include a planfor recovery that will reduce potential scarring effects of the pandemic through policyaction. Government is exploring new financial lending institutions to support small-scaleunits.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

Indian economy which was firmly on the path of recovery in the second half offinancial year 21 has been hit in recent months by a rather unexpectedly virulent secondwave of Covid-19. It has caused a severe strain on healthcare facilities in many parts ofthe country leading to localised lockdowns and a fall in mobility to levels seen a yearago. The double-digit GDP growth expectations for India in financial 22 have been paredback. As a silver lining disruptions to production and supply chains have been far lesssevere during the second wave than during the first wave. Vaccination is expected to pickup pace in the coming months which would support normalisation of mobility levels and ofrelated economic activities. Continued accommodative monetary policy of the RBI and theexpected increase in capex from the Government will be the other supporting factorshelping the economy to steer through this difficult phase.

Of course sustaining such recovery will require the containment of any furtherevolution of the pandemic. Quite in contrast to the near-term challenges the longer-termprospects for the Indian economy continue to be robust. Various initiatives includingprivatization of public sector enterprises monetisation of assets implementation ofNational Infrastructure Pipeline targeted investment incentives through theProduction-Linked Incentives Scheme and the new Labour Code are likely to spur a virtuouscycle of investments and growth in the medium-term.

OPPORTUNITIES THREATS RISK & CONCERNS

On exports front there are both positive and negative factors. Positive factorsinclude the weak currency and decreasing cost competitiveness of China that are likely togive positive impetus to the Indian exports. At the same time factors like slowdown anduncertainty in the global markets volatile foreign exchange rates and increase in cottonand yarn prices are likely to negatively affect growth and profitability for the textileexports. Interest expenses are part of the finance costs therefore any major upwardfluctuations in the Interest rates leads to increase in the cost of debt of the Company.The interest rate risks are mitigated to an extent through fixed interest rates on thenon-convertible debentures.

The biggest challenge facing the Indian textile industry is competition from the otherlow cost neighboring countries which attract more business from the international marketbecause of lower production costs ease in doing business and easier trade routesaccording to an industry expert.

Other challenge faced by the Industry is that approx. one third of the productionCapacity is lying idle due to sluggish Exports poor domestic demand and growing importsfrom Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Textile and Clothing segments are presently undergoing adeep crisis due to uncompetitive prices declining exports un-competitiveness of theproducts in international markets taxes not getting refunded.

The novel corona virus disease is holding the world in a vice-like grip. It isuncertain and hard to predict whether the containment measures will be effective or not.If international borders continue to be closed for too long the situation will becomecatastrophic for many countries in the world. The global economy is heading in execrablyinto recession. The volume of world trade can shrink by 13-32 per cent in 2020 asprojected by the World Trade Organization. The deteriorating global economic conditionsincluding foreign and fiscal exchange constraints have already effected supply chainsprevailing trading patterns need to be reviewed. Efforts should be taken to accelerate thetrading engagements with local regional distribution channels rather than only the globalsupply chain networks. Considering the scale of impact on business the economy and tradethe Government has been announcing relief measures which are a mix of credit guaranteesliquidity infusions into Banks and other financial institutions rather the economy perse.A package of relief measures for SME's has also been announced including changes in thedefinition. Apart from investment the criteria of turnover has also included in thedefinition.
