Dyeing & printing sector needs restructuring & tech-upgradation

10
Apr '08
The printing and dyeing industry of China has made a huge progress in the recent years as a result of good investment made in the sector.

Today, the country is recognized as one of the biggest in the production of dyeing and printing in the world.

Shaoxing County of Zhejiang Province is recognized for having the best printing and dyeing industry in China incorporating some 179 enterprises and producing some 13.2 billion printed and dyed fabric.

The province alone accounts for 30 percent of the total output of the Chinese printing and dyeing industry. However, because of high domestic competition and lack of orders, enterprises have started shifting their factories in other countries like Vietnam and Cambodia.

Moreover, some persistent negative factors like ignorance of environmental concerns and failure of proper brand promotion, have stagnated the growth of the industry.

So far, enterprises have concentrated only on the color and manufacturing of new products. But, nearly 104 variety of dyes presently used in Chinese dyeing and printing industry have been forbidden usage in Germany.

Cheap dyes are bound to affect the export of Chinese textile and clothes products which has already suffered from the stings of anti-dumping charges.

At the same time, incompetence to develop local brands to meet the demands of the Chinese people have led to the entry of a large number of foreign brands which have now occupied a major share of the domestic market.

A completely different yet relative issue is that of rising cost of production of the dyeing and printing industry. While prices for gas, oil, coal and other basic raw materials amount to over 120 million yuan a year, the cost of labor has also gone up considerably.

To add to the already existing grievances of the buyers, Chinese entrepreneurs have shown disregard to adopting new technology and value-added printing and dyeing.

Unless these factors are taken into serious considerations and changes brought about, the dyeing and printing industry of China will find it difficult over come the obstacles in the way growth.
