Ginni Filaments Management Discussions


The Management of the Company is pleased to present its Report on Industry scenario including Companys performance during the financial year 2022-23.

1. Industry Structure and Developments

The industry continues to contribute immensely to the exchequer – 4% to the global trade in textiles and apparel, 2% to the GDP (approx. $70 billion), and constitutes 7% of industry output in terms of value. As India strives to become Atmanirbhar, textiles assume higher significance in helping the country expand its global footprint and achieve the mission of Make in India for the world. No wonder it is called ‘the silent cash cow.

Further, textiles are one of the few industries to throw huge employment opportunities to both the skilled and unskilled workforce over 45 million direct jobs and another 100 million opportunities in allied sectors. It is also one of the primary sources of employment to include women, especially in rural India. This sector contributes immensely to foreign earnings. Government data states that roughly four crore people are engaged across the total textile value chain, and the number is only expected to increase. Sensing immense opportunities here, the government is even planning 75 textile hubs on lines of that in Tamil Nadus Tiruppur. Name exports and the textile sector feature prominently in the list. The countrys exports have steadily increased since FY16, barring a slight decline in FY20 and FY21 largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In FY22, textile exports contributed to around 15% of the earnings.

2. Opportunities and Threats

Fundamentally, the Indian Textile industry is supported by rich resources of raw materials availability in India. It is one of the largest producers of cotton in the world and is well placed in manufacturing of fibres like polyester, silk, viscose, jute, etc. It has highly trained and skilled manpower and has advantage of wage rates.

The Government has approved the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme for promotion of MMF Apparel, MMF Fabrics and Products of Technical Textiles. Incentives under the scheme will be available for 5 years period i.e. during FY 2025-26 to FY 2029-30 on incremental turnover achieved during FY 2024-25 to FY 2028-29 with a budgetary outlay of Rs. 10,683 crore. Contractors of global demand of textiles due to after effects of Covid and due to prolong war between Russia and Ukraine is presently severally effecting textile industries and also Current Cotton high prices is reversing good performance achieved during recent past. The frequently changing policies stated by the government at the central and state levels create an immense pressure on the textile industry. The GST applied on the products make the garments and clothes even more expensive. Broken value chain in GST has created input credit accumulation issues.

Another challenge that the textile industry faces is the limitation to access the latest and best technology while also failing to meet the global standards in the competitive export market. Apart from these issues like child labour, competition from neighbouring countries regarding low-cost garments, personal safety norms are some of the challenges the Indian textile industry faces.

3. Segment-wise or product-wise performance

The Company has presently operated in textile and consumer products segments. The textile segment includes spinning, Knitting, fabric processing garment and spunlace nonwoven fabric, a technical textile product.

During recent past, Spinning and Fabric industry have shown adverse performance.

Companys technical textiles and Consumer product segments have witnessed lower demand in exports. However, because of aggressive marketing efforts made by management, we were able to show decent performance.

4. Risks and Concerns

The global demand of textiles is a big concern at present. The demand of textiles have been severally affected post covid effects and due to prolong war between Russia and Ukraine. The supply chains are being refigured as distributors are preferring to buy goods locally or from neighbouring countries.

6. Outlook

The consumption of textile products is an essential requirement of human needs and therefore, the long term outlook of the textile Industry globally and in India looks brighter.
