ZENITH FIBRES LIMITED
ANNUAL REPORT 2011-2012
MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
(a) Industry Structure and Development:
Man-made fibre industry is well poised for reasonable growth despite slow
down in European and certain other markets. Polypropylene fibre industry
was not growing at the same rate as Polyester fibre because many sectors
where PP should be used is replaced by Polyester because of lower prices.
Certain novel uses have been found in some sectors where use of PP fibre
cannot be replaced and this augurs well for PP fibre industry and it should
also show similar growth as other fibres.

The general outlook for the industry is bright. Several sectors have been
identified where use of PP fibre will be essential. Besides traditional
need in various infrastructure sector its use has started in fabrics used
for soil erosion and collection of ashes from power plants. To take
advantage of expected increase in demand the company has augmented its
capacity and commercial production should commence from June 2012.
