Indo Rama Synthetics (India) Ltd CMD O P Lohia said: "Industry has witnessed increase in oil prices in the last three months and consequent increase in raw material prices i.e. PTA and MEG, but because of demonetisation impact the increase in price of raw material could not be passed to customers in same line..." Also, there was a sizeable drop in volume terms immediately after demonetisation leading to negative financial impact which is now slowly getting back to normal, he added.


Lohia further said as of now with some improvement in financial markets and also increase in cotton prices the cost is being passed on.


"There has been dumping of polyester fiber form China and other countries for more than one year, which has been putting pressure on prices and impacted the margin," he added.


Expressing optimism over the expected implementation of GST, he said it "is expected to be a growth stimulator for the polyester industry".


"Looking forward, global and domestic demand for polyester fibre is looking upward so are the prices. This will open new opportunities for MMF producers," he said.

Shares of Indo Rama Synthetics were trading 5.02 percent down at Rs 35 apiece on BSE.
