Industry Structure and Development
The Textile Industry in India accounts for 10% of the manufacturing production leading to 2% of the GDP of the Country which is one of the significant contributors to the Indian economy. Textiles sector is one of the largest contributors to Indias exports with approximately 15 percent of total exports. During the year 2022-23, the Cotton Textile Industry has been experienced an improvement on account of overall markets.
With domestic and global economic conditions gradually improving along with the focused efforts made by Ministry of Textiles, Indian textiles and garments sector is set for growth, buoyed by revival in domestic consumption and export demand.
Bhalchandram Clothing Limited is mainly engaged in the export trading of cotton yarn in all coarser and fine counts and grey cotton fabrics, where the Company has good presence.
Opportunities and Threats
The future of Indian Cotton Textile Industry is highly depending on availability of raw material at a competitive price. With the introduction of Hybrids and BT Cotton, the cotton production in India is increasing every year. The government is making efforts to supply proper quality seeds at a reasonable price to the growers and it is expected that the supply of quality cotton will be comfortable.
In the past, the Textile Industry did not develop in an organized manner and the policy favored fragmentation resulting in organized players suffering heavily because of the distorted fiscal structure. Fortunately, in the last few years, the Government has now provided level playing field to all the sectors of textile industry and therefore, large investments are coming in the textile industry. Government had given good incentives under Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme and also benefits to the processing sector, which will give boost to the textile industry.
The long term objective of the Company is to become strong player in the cotton textiles export market with strong emphasis on product and market development, value added yarns, customer services and Technology Up gradation. Your Company is also continuously improving its operational efficiency, and cost control which alone can improve the bottom line in future in highly competitive environment. Further, your Company is hopeful to get advantage of the overall good times likely to come for the Indian Cotton Textile Industry and will do all out efforts to secure the bigger share of the increasing market in future.
A stable outlook on cotton and synthetic textiles would result from favorable policy environment, improvements in demand-supply position, continued stability in input costs and consequent improvement in margins/liquidity. It is unlikely that the sectors outlook will turn positive until fundamental issues such as power shortage, lack of technology and modern machinery and demand slowdown are resolved. However, foreign direct investment in retail is an opportunity that would unleash demand in the long run and offset any slowdown in exports.
By encashing the rich experience gained by the Company in the Cotton Textile sector, the company has plans to increase its efforts of marketing. The emphasis will also be on more exports of value added items such as dyed yarns, specialty yarns and grey and dyed fabrics.
