Tirupur exporters overcome challenges to post modest growth

Apr '11
In spite of being inundated under several problems like rise in input cost and shutting down of dyeing units following a court order for contravening pollution control norms, the textile hub of Tirupur witnessed a rise in knitwear exports during the last 2010-11 fiscal.

Tirupur knitwear cluster's exports rose significantly from Rs. 118 billion in 2009-10 to Rs. 125 billion during the recently concluded 2010-11 fiscal.

However, in spite of this rise in value of exports, factors like enormous rise in prices of raw materials like cotton and cotton yarn, together with increase in transportation costs, cut down the profit margins of the exporters.

Further, dyeing sector was taking measures for speedy compliance of zero liquid discharge (ZLD) norms fixed by the Madras High Court for the effluent treatment process.

By now, around Rs. 12 billion have been spent for setting up Individual Effluent Treatment Plants and Common Effluent Treatment Plants in the cluster, in order to check further discharge of waste water into River Noyyal.

The eco-green industrial evaporator has evolved as a practicable solution for reaching the ZLD in the effluent treatment process.

A research team of NIFT-TEA College of Knitwear Fashion with industrial stakeholders, technocrats and Textiles Committee officials under the Union Government on an advisory role, as its members developed this eco-green evaporator while working under guidance of institute Chairman Raja M. Shanmugam.

Necessary approval for use of the device from Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board would be obtained and plans to make it popular amongst the dyeing unit owners are underway.

The marine discharge project is being viewed as a long term solution for discarding processed industrial effluents.

Editor's note –
At a time when prices of finished products have increased by atleast 20-30 percent in the last one year, due to incessant rise in raw material prices, a growth of just under 6 percent in export value seems very modest, when compared to the 20-40 percent rates clocked by China, Bangladesh and Vietnam in and around the same period.
