ANALYSIS AND REVIEW Textile Industry Conditions The Textile Industry contributes around 6% to India''s GDP. 11% to export earnings and is the second largest employer (-whopping 55 million people) after agriculture. The Industry has shown continued growth with a potential to increase its global trade share from the current 4.5% to 8% (USD 80 Billion) in the next 5 years supported by a rich abundance of raw material, skilled labour and talent. In FY 2014-15, the textile industry is estimated to have contributed USD 42 Billion (4%) to India''s GDP, and 27% to the country''s foreign exchange inflows. Opportunities and Challenges Being the second largest employer in India coupled with strong Industry linkages with the rural economy augurs well for the Indian textile industry as one of the most significant sectors with an incremental growth potential. Rural economy has seen a spurt in income levels the last few years and this is the right time to juxtapose their synergies to promote the industry''s growth. Being one of the key focus sectors under the Government''s Make in India campaign is a testimony to the huge growth potential the industry holds, both in terms of infrastructure development and skill improvement. Globally, favourable trade policy reforms would also allow the industry to expand its trade partners, improve its export competitiveness and contribute substantially to the nation''s income. However, the growth prospects are constrained by many challenges including rising input costs (wages, power and interest costs), restrictive labour laws and intensified competition from other low cost countries like Bangladesh. Such issues need to be addressed to result in unlocking maximum industry growth potential. STRENGTHS OF THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY The following are a few strengths of the Indian Textile Industry: - An Independent and self-reliant industry; - Tremendous potential of growth in the domestic and international markets; - Abundant Raw Material availability that helps industry to control costs and reduces the lead-time across operations; - Availability of low cost and skilled manpower provides competitive advantage to industry; - Availability of large varieties of cotton fiber and has a fast growing synthetic fiber industry; - Promising export potential; WEAKNESSES OF THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY The following are a few weaknesses of the textile industry, which it has to overcome. - The Industry is a highly fragmented Industry. - It is highly dependent on Cotton. - There is lower productivity in various segments. - There is a tremendous growth in the unorganized sector. - Lack of technological developments that affect the productivity and other activities in whole value chain. - Infrastructural Bottlenecks and Efficiency such as transaction time at ports and transportation time. - Unfavorable labour Laws. - Lack of Trade Membership, which is a hindrance to tap other potential markets. Performance Highlights During FY 2014-15, Your Company''s total sales registered a growth of 12.76% and Net profit being Rs. 214.92 lacs as against t 143.98 lacs in FY 2013-14.
