Textile industry reeling under acute crisis

The predominantly cotton-based Indian textile industry is reeling under acute crisis in the recent past due to soaring up of cotton prices.

The country has achieved a record crop of 315 lakh bales during the current season. However, the domestic industry could not derive benefit out of the home grown cotton.

On the other hand, the textile mills are facing acute shortage of good quality cotton due to abnormal export and the speculations of international buyers in the domestic market.

In a Press Release issued, Dr.K.V.Srinivasan, Chairman, The Southern India Mills' Association has said that the textile mills are not able to break even with the abnormal cotton prices even after the slight increase in the yarn prices.

He has feared that the entire textile industry might come to a halt leaving millions of people in the country jobless if the cotton issue is not addressed immediately.

He has mentioned that the stock to use ratio of cotton in India has gone down as compared to the global level ratio of 45%.

He has further said that the competing countries like China, Pakistan though importing large volume of cotton from India is very cautious on stock to use ratio and maintaining around 35%.

Cotton being a seasonal commodity and purely depends on the monsoon, it is very essential to maintain comfortable buffer stock to manage unforeseen conditions and meet the customer requirements. He has mentioned that Tamil Nadu, which accounts for more than 50% of the spindleage is the worst hit.
