Coir Board Chairman, VS Vijayaraghavan has asked coir industry to make efforts to deal with the increasing coir fibre scarce, as the coir sector of the state of Kerala has immense potential for development, considering the hike in global as well as domestic sales during the last three years.

Malabar region had a significant role to play to get rid of coir fibre shortage, since only 30 percent of the available coconut husks were procured from this region, informed the Chairman to media professionals. Malabar region shares 60 percent to the overall coconut production of the state.

Coir exports soared up to Rs 8.04 billion during 2008-09 over Rs 5.08 billion during 2007-08, recording a growth of 36 percent. As well as the number of export destinations also increased from 70 to 105, during the same period.

Growing awareness regarding environment-friendly coir products, round the globe, resulted in to the growth of coir product exports from countries like Germany and UK, which followed USA that accounts for 33 percent of the country's overall coir product exports, added the Chairman.

The coir board, in association with the Kerala government's Coir development department, has undertaken mechanization at each stage of the industry, with an objective to ensure better wages for the workers as well as to resolve the issue of increasing shortage of trained artisans.
