1. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE, DEVELOPMENT

During the period under the review, the Company had been operating in Textile activities i.e. cloth processing. The textile sector has always been an important part of peoples lives in India. The textile industry in India is one of the oldest manufacturing sectors in the country and is currently its largest. Textile machinery and accessories have been identified as core sectors under Make In India campaign there has not been any measures for this sector either today, 45% of textile machine accessories requirement is met by domestic producers & 55% through imports. The government has been pushing for indigenous production through ‘Make in India campaign to bring down imports.

India is the worlds second-largest exporter of textiles and apparels, with a massive raw material and manufacturing base. The textile industry is a significant contributor to the economy, both in terms of its domestic share and exports. It contributes about seven per cent to industry output, two per cent to the GDP and 15 per cent to the countrys total exports earnings. The Indian textiles industry is extremely varied, with the hand-spun and hand- woven textiles sectors at one end of the spectrum, while the capital intensive sophisticated mills sector at the other end of the spectrum. The decentralized power looms/ hosiery and knitting sector form the largest component of the textiles sector. The close linkage of the textile industry to agriculture (for raw materials such as cotton) and the ancient culture and traditions of the country in terms of textiles make the Indian textiles sector unique in comparison to the industries of other countries. The Indian textile industry has the capacity to produce a wide variety of products suitable to different market segments, both within India and across the world. With over 45 Million people employed directly, the textile industry is one of the largest sources of employment generation in the country. The growth of textile sector is largely depends on consumer spending and multiple factors like actual and perceived economic condition, disposable income and employment. Industry faces a non-level playing field in many markets due to tariff barriers, however industry needs to improve its productivity levels, economies of scale and organize itself better for large production at competitive prices.
