Madurai spinners association has appealed to the Prime Minister to stop export of cotton waste from the country and save open end spinning industry from impeding doom.

Textile industry is the second largest job providing industry in our country. Till concept of Open End (OE) spinning was introduced in the country in middle of 80's, all waste cotton generated in spinning sector was primarily sold for making mattresses, paper industry and some quantity was used for currency printing also.

After introduction of open end machines and consequently using cotton waste to spin coarse count yarns thereby adding value, many subsidiary units with two and three open end spinning frames have come up in the small scale sector employing a large number of workers.

Now because of the global scarcity of short staple fibers, OE spinners from other countries are sourcing cotton waste from India. Since there are no restrictions on export of cotton and cotton waste most of the cotton wastes are being exported to China and other countries.

By doing so availability of cotton waste to open end spinning units in the country has come down drastically and has also resulted in prices rising by nearly 50%. Many of the open end spinning mills have partially or completely closed down.

This has led to a cascading effect on exports of up stream products like terry towels, carpets, sheeting, home textiles and exports in this segment is expected to reduce drastically.
