Nevertheless. the domestic steel industry is highly dependent on imported thermal and coking coal and the finished steel prices are determined based on the landed cost of imports.  CARE Research expects prices of key raw materials to correct in FY13 compared to the average prices recorded in FY12. In line with the growth in domestic demand. Owing to the continued oversupply situation in the global steel industry. we expect the global demand for finished steel to grow at around 5%. Margins are expected to be subdued owing to the time lag between corrections in raw material and finished steel prices.

TEXTILES
Industry Snapshot

NEUTRAL

 The Indian textile industry is one of the major sectors of Indian economy and contributes almost 14 per cent of India’s industrial production, 4 per cent of National GDP and almost 17 per cent of India's export earnings. The textile industry is the second-largest employer in the country after agriculture and provides employment to close to 35 million people. The Indian textile industry can be divided into a number of segments such as cotton, silk, woolen, readymade, jute and handicraft.  As per the annual report 2010-11 of Ministry of Textiles, the size of Indian textile sector is expected to be USD 55 billion. Further, during FY12, the textile exports are expected to remain in the range of USD 28-30 billion. The textile exports are estimated to be around USD 18 billion upto November 2011.  The Indian Government had sanctioned a budget of `19.72 billion for FY12 under its restructured TUFS scheme, but the interest waiver scheme was not taken advantage of by the industry, which was already facing severe cash crunch. As of February 28, 2012, only `1.4 billion of subsidy has been availed.  Overall demand outlook for the textile industry for FY13 is expected to remain moderate; with volatile commodity prices and exchange rate being key challenges for the industry. Participants who are well placed in value chain and have control over their debt levels may witness improved performance. Prospect of cotton spinning units is expected to improve with decline in cotton prices leading to a revival in demand for cotton yarn and consequent increase in capacity utilization across the cotton textile value chain. Further, with increasing urbanization, growing households and increasing disposable income, the domestic demand for denim fabric is also expected to remain healthy going forward. However, with the US and EU accounting for more than 70 per cent of Indian apparel exports, the concerns over the economic health of these countries would put pressure on the Indian apparel exporters in the medium term. Man Made Fibre (MMF) industry is expected to grow at a moderate 5-6 per cent in the medium term. However, recent increase in input prices owing to the increase in crude oil prices and the stabilization of cotton prices may limit the envisaged growth prospects of the MMF industry.

Proposal and Impact
Budget proposals Hike in standard excise duty from 1%, 5% and 10% to 2%, 6% and 12% on various items Impact on the industry The hike in excise duty on cotton-based products from 5% to 6% is not expected to have any significant negative impact on cotton textile players since the excise duty on cotton-based products is concessional and optional. The hike in excise duty on textile products other than cotton-based products from 10% to 12% is expected to increase the cost of production for non-cotton textile players.

73

Budget proposals Hike in excise duty on branded readymade garments from 10% (with 55% abetment) to 12% (with 70% abetment)

Impact on the industry The hike in excise duty on branded readymade garment from 10% to 12% coupled with an increase in abetment from 55% to 70% would result in a net decline in effective excise duty from 4.5% to 3.6% which is expected to result in marginal benefit to readymade garment manufacturers. With falling cotton prices and proposed reduction in effective excise duty, the prices of cotton-based branded readymade garments is expected to come down which would lead to boost in demand.

Exemption of customs duty for new automated shuttle looms

The exemption of new automated shuttle looms from customs duty is expected to boost investments and capacity addition in weaving and garment sectors which may increase competition considering the fragmented nature of the industry.

Note In Union Budget 2012-13, the government has announced a financial package of `3,884 crore for waiver of loans of handloom weavers and their cooperative societies.

Impact on companies
Company Alok Industries Ltd Impact Comments Its presence across the textile value chain and its integrated operations would enable Alok Industries Ltd. to pass on the excise duty hike to its customers. Falling cotton prices and proposed reduction in effective excise duty on readymade garments is expected to have a positive impact on Arvind Ltd. since Arvind Ltd. derives majority of its revenues from denim and garment segments With hike in excise duty on man-made fibre coupled with recent increase in crude oil prices, it is expected to limit its ability to pass on the increase in cost of production to end users. With falling cotton prices, revival in demand and its established position in domestic cotton yarn manufacturing segment, Nahar Spinning Mills is expected to maintain its leadership position in the segment. Raymond Ltd. derives majority of its revenues from shirting fabric (cotton based) and branded readymade garments & apparels. Since the excise duty on cotton based products is concessional and optional and the effective excise duty on branded readymade garments is proposed to be reduced from 4.5% to 3.6%, it is expected to have favourable impact on Raymond Ltd. Recent hike in crude oil prices has resulted in an increase in cost of raw material for RSWM Ltd. since its major raw materials are crude oil derivatives. This coupled with proposed hike in excise duty from 10% to 12% is expected to further increase in cost of production for RSWM thereby putting pressure on its margins. With falling cotton prices, revival in demand and Vardhman Textile Ltd.’s established position in domestic cotton yarn manufacturing segment, it is expected to maintain its leading position in the segment. With falling cotton prices and Welspun India Ltd.’s established market position in home textile segment, it is expected to maintain its market position.
