Shree Hari Chemicals Export Ltd Management Discussions.

INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT:

The chemical industry is one of the most important sectors for the economic development of any country. Dyestuff sector is one of the core chemical industries in India.

The industry s higher installed capacity is a source of strength for exports. With the entry of small units in a big way and the availability of the basic organic intermediates, Indian dyestuff industry has now gained a firm footing in the export markets. The Indian dyestuff industry accounts for 6.5% of world production. This shows that India is a competent player in the world market.

Globally the dyestuffs industry has seen an impressive growth. Initially the industrys production bases were mostly in the west, but in the last few years, they have been shifting to the East.

OPPORTUNITY:

The world market for textile is growing and therefore the demand for dyes will continue to grow in future. The raw material and intermediates are easily available and most of the manufacturers located in Gujarat and Maharashtra are very close to the source of the raw material.

Most of the plants in the world today are large, but India has developed technology for small size plant too. Indigenously developed technology is capable of producing dyes with full efficiency which results in reduction of cost.

Almost a 100 dyestuff manufacturer from India are exporting various product to US, UK, Singapore, the Middle East, Japan etc which shows our products are well accepted in international market.

THREATS:

The demand for most of the dyes depends largely on the textile and the garment industry, any change in the production pattern of textile industry has an influence on the demand pattern of the individual categories of dyestuff.

The small scale manufacturers forced the organized manufacturers to scale down their price of H-Acid. Indiscriminate production of H-Acid led to its being sold at a lower price in the international market.

The factors restraining the growth of colorants market are raw material price volatility, its global over-capacity, and environmental concerns.
