Handicraft sector in dire straits

06
Dec '08
The economic turmoil and the resultant recessionary trends are turning economies of developing and underdeveloped countries topsy turvy. Along with well developed sectors even the informal sectors like the handicrafts industry are feeling the brunt of the recession.

India, which has a very good and vibrant handicraft industry and which also generates very good export revenue from the same has been hit hard and there are reports of hundreds of thousands of workers in the sector losing their jobs.

Exports from the industry have been estimated to have fallen by as much as 22 percent in the period April-September. Exports have fallen to US $1.04 billion from $1.34 billion in the same period of last year.

Indian handicraft products commanded a very good market in the western and well as Far East Asian countries, but with depression setting in these markets, exports from the sector have been affected to a large extent.

There are reports of most of the exported oriented units downing their shutters in face of depleting order books. The Commerce Secretary in the Government of India had projected that 500,000 people would lose their jobs in the textile sector which also includes the handicraft sector, last week.
