Speciality segment bolsters overall weaving sector performance

16
Sep '05
While the traditional weaving sector continued its shrinking spell in 2005, total weaving industry output was bolstered by the specialty segment.

Europa Index of Output (2000=100) for Jan-July (seven months) averaged 79.7, which represented just 1.8 percent year-on-year decline.

Traditional cotton weaving output averaged a 7.5 percent monthly year-on-year decline showing worst ever performance.

Worsted weaving registered an average 3.3 percent monthly decline, dropping to an indexed output of 55.7 monthly average versus the 2000 base of 100.

A 3.5 percent year-on-year decline on an average monthly production was recorded for made-up textiles.

But the redeeming feature was textile-finishing output, as measured by the Europa Index of Total Textile Finishing (2000=100) that averaged 109.5 in the corresponding period, representing a big rise of 17.9 percent monthly year-on-year basis.

Silk weaving grew 9.4 percent average year-on-year terms while woolen fabric showed 5.6 percent increase on monthly year-on-year expansion.
