Textile sector attracts Rs 69 billion investment in 2009

According to the quarterly Industry and Economic update of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), investments totaling to Rs 69 billion have been entailed in the current year in the textile sector in the Southern states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.

The update also predicts an early revival of growth in the textile industry, then previously anticipated and also notes that profitability and sales of the sector has improved from the lows touched in the last months of 2008.

It says that while cotton and cotton-polyester blended yarns are not able to generate as many export orders, spun yarns are reporting a surge in exports, which bodes well for the industry as a whole.

The review also expects that cotton production is expected to increase in the current year, due to firming of prices, but at the same time it expects cotton consumption to fall in domestic markets in 2009 and expects it to revive in 2010.
