ABSTRACT
The project “EVALUATION AND FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES OF INDIAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY” provides a deep knowledge of various industry which produces the readymade garments.

It also provides a comparative study of different textile production and marketing companies like ARVIND MILLS, RELIANCE TEXTILES, BIRLA GROUP, RAYMONDS, BOMBAY DEYING AND OTHERS with similar profile to discuss about their products, offers, policies, services and providing suggestion to them. . On the basis of feedback through questionnaire and observation method, I fond that there is close competition between the companies. As each of them are increasing their products, qualities, looks and providing better services everyday. The entry of the MNCs are also the major opportunity for the industry and it enlarge the competition of the industry.

The Indian textile industry is the one of the biggest industry of India. It is a total market size of $55 billion. It contains at least 4% of GDP, 17% of total industrial production, 19% of The domestic market is likely to increase from US$ 34.6 billion to US$ 60 billion by 2012. It is expected that India's share of exports to the world would also increase from the current 4 per cent to around 7 per cent during this period.India's textile exports have shot up from US$ 19.14 billion in 2006-07 to US$ 22.13 billion in 2007-08, registering a growth of over 15 per cent.

My analysis is based on sample results. It was a difficult task to gather the information from respondents by meeting them personally in order to get questionnaire filled. There was a lot of time pressure and sometimes unwillingness of respondents to respond.

Textile is the core business of India from the ling time. It is major business for our short term and cottage industries. Indian textile industry is as old as the word textile itself. This industry holds a significant position in India by providing the most basic need of Indians. Starting from the procurement of raw materials to the final production stage of the actual textile, the Indian textile industry works on an independent basis.

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY :Textile is the oldest business of Indians. Manier places in India accounting for its remarkable achievement in the field of textiles. It is a major source of the earning of the revenue generation for the country. From the last 50 years after the independence, this sector continuously is a part of the revenue generation of the countries. It is a major industry in employment generation of the country. From the last couple of years, it accounting for a leading role in the GDP of the country. It accounts for around 4 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP), 14 per cent of industrial production and over 13 per cent of the country's total export earnings. Moreover, it provides employment to over 35 million people. The Indian textile industry is estimated to be around US$ 52 billion and is likely to reach US$ 115 billion by 2012. The domestic market is likely to increase from US$ 34.6 billion to US$ 60 billion by 2012. It is expected that India's share of exports to the world would also increase from the current 4 per cent to around 7 per cent during this period. India's textile exports have shot up from US$ 19.14 billion in 2006-07 to US$ 22.13 billion in 2007-08, registering a growth of over 15 per cent. HISTORY OF INDIAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY :India has a diverse and rich textile tradition. It is the second largest producer of textile and clothing in the world with its products being exported to over 120 countries. Recent estimates indicate that the country's textile sector will grow faster in the coming years and contribute a lot to the our overall economy. There are different time per time revolution has been taken place in the Indian textile industry. The textile sector has been thriving in India for decades. The traditional textile industry of India had virtually decayed during the colonial regime. However, in the nineteenth century, the industry was revived with the establishment of textile mills in Calcutta (now Kolkata) in 1818. Cotton textile industry had begun functioning in Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1850s and the first cotton textile mill in the city was established in 1854 by a Parsi cotton merchant. These growth expectations run contrary to the perceived vied, a decade back or so, that textile was a sunset industry. Till 1985, India has no specialized policies to promote the textile industry. It is is 1985 that the government announced a separate policy statement with regard to development of textile sector. In the year 2000, National Textile Policy was announced and since then the Indian textile industry has been exhibiting a distinguished performance opening up new opportunities for the small and medium scale industries (SMEs) in the country.

CHAPTER—4 OVERVIEW OF INDIAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY

OVERVIEW OF INDIAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY

15

Indian textile industry is the country’s leading profit gainer industry. It is a very old and traditional business of India. This industry holds a significant position in India by providing the most basic need of Indians. Starting from the procurement of raw materials to the final production stage of the actual textile, the Indian textile industry works on an independent basis. Until the economic liberalization of Indian economy, the Indian Textile Industry was predominantly unorganized industry. The opening up of Indian economy post 1990s led to a stupendous growth of this industry.

Indian Textile Industry is one of the largest textile industries in the world. Today, Indian economy is largely dependent on textile manufacturing and exports. India earns around 27% of the foreign exchange from exports of textiles. Further, Indian Textile Industry contributes about 14% of the total industrial production of India. Furthermore, its contribution to the gross domestic product of India is around 3% and the numbers are steadily increasing. Indian Textile Industry involves around 35 million workers directly and it accounts for 21% of the total employment generated in the economy.

Indian textile industry concludes of various segments like: 1. Woolen Textile 2. Cotton Textiles 3. Silk Textiles 4. Readymade Garments 5. Jute And Coir 6. Hand-Crafted Textile Like Carpets 7. Man Made Textiles

Indian textile industry in a very short span had made a distinct position globally, alluring the globe towards the ‘World of Indian textiles’. This has happened mainly because: 8. High availability of raw materials

16

9. Highly skilled economical labor, an added advantage 10. Largest producer of cotton yarn contributing 25% towards worlds cotton 11. Availability of all kinds of fibers like silk, cotton, wool and even high quality synthetic fibers 12. Flexibility of the readymade garment industry in terms of sizes, fabric variety, quantity, quality and cost It’s not just the present that is shinning like a bright start but also the future, as the textile export market of India is expected to reach a high of $50 billion by 2010. This will eventually make a profit by 300%. In order to attain this target Indian textile industry has already started improving their design skills, including a combination of various fibers. Indian textile industry is all set to meet international standards and is planning to invest $5 billion in machineries very soon. Most of the international brands like Marks & Spencer, JC penny, Gap have started procuring most of their fabrics from India. In fact, Walmart, who had procured textile worth $ 200 million last year, intends to procure $ 3 billion worth of textile this year. The golden phase of the Indian textile industry has just begun where the world is chasing it from all nooks and corners.

INDIAN TEXTILE POLICY 2000. Highlights of the National Textile Policy 2000 The Government of India recently announced the new National Textile Policy (NTP) 2000, with the objective of facilitating the industry to attain and sustain a pre-eminent global standing in the manufacture and export of clothing. In furtherance of these objectives, the strategic thrust is to be placed on technological upgradation, enhancement of productivity and quality, product diversification, and strengthening the raw material base in the country. Through NTP 2000, the Government would endeavor to achieve the target of textile and apparel exports from the present level of U.S. $11 billion to U.S. $50 billion by 2010. Of this, the share of garments would be U.S. $25 billion.Ê The policy provides for setting up a venture capital fund for tapping knowledge-based entrepreneurs and assisting the private sector to set up specialized financial arrangements to fund the diverse needs of the textile industry. The new policy would also encourage the private sector to set up world class, environment-friendly, integrated textile complexes and textile processing units in different parts of the country and would review and revitalise the working of the TRAs (TextileResearch Associations) to focus research on industry needs. Sectoral Initiatives Within the framework of the new Policy, the following sector specific initiatives will be taken: RAW MATERIALS The thrust will be on improving the availability, productivity and quality of raw materials at reasonable prices for the industry. Though cotton is expected to continue to be the dominant fiber, special attention will be given to bring the balance between cotton and non-cotton fibers closer to international levels. Cotton The primary aim of the policy for this segment will be to improve production, productivity and quality, and stabilize prices. The Technology Mission on Cotton will be the instrument for achieving these parameters. Ministry of Textiles, Ministry of Agriculture, Cotton growing States, farmers and industry associations will be actively involved in the implementation of this Mission.

24

Silk Focus will be on achieving international standards in all varieties of silk. Steps will include: • Improving Research & Development and effective transfer of technology at all stages. • Increasing the production of non-mulberry varieties of silk. • Encouraging clustering of activities of reeling and weaving and strengthening linkages between producers and industry. • Reviewing the import policy periodically for raw silk, taking into account the balanced interests of the sericulturists as well as the export manufacturers.Ê Wool In order to augment availability of quality wool, the following measures will be initiated: • Take up collaborative research projects with the leading wool producing countries of the world. • Encourage private breeding farms to increase productivity. • Promote private sector linkages for marketing of wool. • Take up an integrated development program for angora wool. Jute A Technology Mission on Jute will be launched to achieve the following objectives: • Develop high yielding seeds to improve productivity and acceptability in markets. • Improve retting practices to get better quality fiber. • Transfer cost effective technologies to the farmers and create strong market linkages. Clothing The role of this sector is poised for radical change in view of the transformation in the international trading environment brought about by the rules and regulations of the WTO. The industry will be restructured as follows: • Garment industry will be taken out of the SSI reservation list.

25

• Joint ventures and strategic alliances with leading world manufacturers will be promoted. • Schemes with necessary infrastructural facilities for the establishment of textile/apparel parks will be designed with the active involvement of state governments, financial institutions and the private sector.

Jute Industry In the jute sector, attempts would be made to revive the jute economy through supportive measures covering research and development, technology upgradation, creation of infrastructure for storage and marketing of raw jute, and product and market development activities for jute and diversified jute products. Spinning Sector The NTP seeks to continue efforts to modernize and upgrade technology to international levels, and proposes to take the following steps, in cotton spinning as well as in the worsted woolen sectors: • Encourage the spinning sector to continue to modernize. • Liberalize and encourage export of cotton yarn. Organized Mill Industry Efforts will be made to restore the organized mill industry to its position of pre-eminence to meet international demand for high value and large volume products. For this purpose, the following measures will be initiated: • Integration of production efforts on technology driven lines • Encouragement for setting up large integrated textile complexes • Strategic alliances with international textile majors, with focus on new products and retailing strategies • Creation of awareness and supportive measures for application of IT for upgradation of technology, enhancement of efficiency, productivity and quality, better working environment and HRD. The earlier policy of not nationalizing sick units will be continued. As regards the unviable Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), various options for strategic partnerships or privatization

26

will be explored. Non-viable mills will be closed down with provision for an adequate safety-net for workers and employees. Powerloom Industry The powerloom sector occupies a pivotal position in the Indian textile industry. However, its growth has been stunted by technological obsolescence, fragmented structure, low productivity and low-end quality products. The focus will therefore be on modernization of powerloom service Centres and testing facilities, and clustering of facilities to achieve optimum levels of production. Handloom Industry The handloom sector is known for its heritage and the tradition of excellent craftsmanship. It provides livelihood to India’s millions of weavers and crafts-persons. The industry has not only survived but also grown over the decades due to its inherent strengths like flexibility of production in small quantities, openness to innovation, low level of capital investment and immense possibilities for fabric design. The Government will continue to accord priority to this sector. Steps would be taken to promote and develop its exclusiveness for the global market. Measures willinclude the following: • Training modules for weavers engaged in the production of low value added items with theobjective of upgrading their skills to enable them to find alternate employment in the textile or other allied sector • Comprehensive welfare measures in close cooperation with the State Governments, for better working environment and social security of weavers • Effective support systems in R&D, design inputs, skill upgradation • Review of the Hank Yarn Obligation Order and the Reservation Orders issued under the Handloom (Reservation of Articles for Production) Act 1985, keeping in mind the needs ofhandloom weavers Merchandising and marketing will be central to the success of the handloom sector,Êthe presentpackage of schemes for production of value added fabrics will be streamlined, innovative marketoriented schemes will be introduced, and joint ventures will be encouraged both at the domestic and international levels. Brand equity of handlooms will also be commercially exploited to the extent possible. Knitting Hosiery knitting, the growth of which has accelerated during the last decade primarily because of expansion of hosiery into global fashion knitwear, is expected to expand into the apparel and home furnishing sectors. In this segment, the following measures will be taken:

27

• Review of the Policy of SSI Reservation for this sector • Encouraging technology upgradation and expansion of capacity • Introduction of support systems for commercial intelligence, design and fashion inputs Carpets While machine-made carpet manufacturing in the mill sector will be guided by the policy framework for the organized industry, the policy for the hand knotted carpet sector will focus on sustained growth of exports and welfare of weavers and their children. Encouragement will be given to the manufacture of products that conform to and bear the ‘KALEEN’ mark of standards, with insistence on compliance with the provisions of the Child Labor (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986. Government intervention will be in technology upgradation, including indigenization of machines, development of testing facilities, and use of natural dyes. Adaptation of traditional motifs and promotion of brand image would also constitute thrust areas.

28

SWOT ANALYSIS OF INDIAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY :Indian Textile Industry has done a remarkable achievement in terms of growth and earning foreign exchange. The SWOT analysis of the industry is given as follows :STRENGTH :• •

A large organized sector. A big production of yarn and silk. Govt. initiatives. A healthy foreign market share of 25%. There are well-established production bases for made-ups export as well as for domestic market.

• • •

There are adequate processing facility for yarn dyeing and production of yarn dyed Fabrics.

• •

Availability of well engineering industries. There are a large number of powerloom owners and looms that are expanding in size over the recent period.

WEAKNESS :•

Poor supply chain management. Unavailability of skilled labours. Poor Transport facility. The most serious problem of the industry is the lack of adequate processing facilities; there is over-dependence on hand processors and traditional items.

• • •

The majority of the SMEs are tiny and cottage type units without sufficient capital

29

back-up. • The quality of wider-width fabrics for meeting the export demand is lacking in many respects, which is acting as a disadvantage to the growth of the industry.

OPPORTUNITIES :•

A vast rural market in the country and European market. Upcoming commonwealth games in the country. Grey fabric export is continuing to grow and will show increasing trends. Nearly 40 textiles parks are being set up throughout the country under the Scheme for Integrated Textile Parks (SITP), which is stated to attract an investment of Rs 21.502 crore (US$ 4.42 million) and create employment, both direct and indirect for 9.08 lakh workers and produce goods worth Rs 38.115 crore (US$ 7.82 million) annually.

• •

THREATS :• • Abolition of quota system will lead to fluctuations in the export demand Increasing competition from other states/centres (like Surat) will be a major problem where the industries have come up afresh and are well developed and technologically more advanced. • Entry of global competitors.
