Package will boost made-ups sector: SIMA

The reforms package approved by the Union Cabinet to boost employment generation and exports in the made-ups sector will greatly help the segment to improve its global competitiveness in the global market, the Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) has said. The policy interventions are expected to boost exports and create up to 11 lakh jobs in 3 years.
 
“The reforms would create more demand for fabrics, yarns and fibres in the domestic market and thereby help the down sectors that have been suffering due to excess production capacity to a certain extent,” SIMA chairman M Senthil Kumar said in a statement.
 
The reforms to boost employment generation and exports in the made-ups sector have come at a time when the sector has been facing challenges in the international market due to high costs of production, non-refund of state levies, and high tariff barrier when compared to competing nations such as Pakistan, Vietnam, etc, SIMA said.
 
SIMA chairman thanked textiles minister Smriti Irani for considering the representation made by the association and including the made-ups sector under the Rs 6,006 crore special export package announced for the garment sector in June 2016.
 
Made-ups sector generates the largest employment of over 120 jobs per rupees one crore investment, especially to the rural women. The finished fabrics are largely converted into apparel and made-ups. Both the sectors have the same manufacturing activities of cutting and sewing.
 
The global made-ups market size currently is around $40 billion and India accounts around 13 per cent ($7 billion). Made-ups textile products are broadly grouped into bed linen, kitchen linen, table linen and toilet linen categories. In recent years, the global demand for made-ups with special finishes such fire retardant, water repellent, stain resistant, easy care, wrinkle free, anti bacterial and microbial, fragrance, etc. are increasing exponentially. The Indian textile industry has started making huge investments across the textile value chain (from spinning to finishing) to meet the increasing global demand, the statement said.
 
In the total Indian made-ups exports, US accounts around 45 per cent, followed by UAE with 9 per cent, UK with 5.5 per cent and Germany 5.1 per cent share. (RKS)
