Textile: Beleaguered with risks?

Jun 29, 2007

In FY07, India's textile and apparel exports grew at a modest pace of 7.7% YoY to reach US$ 19 bn (nearly one-fifth of total exports). However, growth in the two key markets of the US and the EU at 9% and 15% YoY, respectively during 2006, was relatively stronger.

Textile: Offering value?

Apr 13, 2007

At a time when companies across sectors and sectors across industrial and service categories have generated much investor interest, causing their stock prices to multiply several times, the textile sector seems to be unduly derelict.

Textile: Is it different this time?

Sep 15, 2006

Indian textile companies, across product categories (apparels, denim, home textiles) are today seeking to build scale, extend their footprint and access global markets. While their attempts are not without several hiccups, there is certainly a sort of rejuvenation in the sector, which was once written off as an old economy debt-ridden sector. This was primarily so when most companies in the sector sought refuge in the BIFR in the late 90s. With the textile majors today once again talking of expa

Textiles: Head-on with China...

Aug 4, 2006

Besides population, GDP growth and infrastructure amenities, India today is competing head-on with China on other grounds as well. One of them being - targeting a larger share of the American and European consumers' wallets. With the uncertainty prevailing over the Chinese textile industry on account of the restriction on exports to the US and Europe, retailers and merchandisers in these countries are seeking to diversify their sourcing in order to avoid any sudden supply shocks. India has been

Textile: A sense of deja vu?

Jul 7, 2006

The bear carnage witnessed on the bourses over the last couple of months took a toll on all sectors alike - be it old or new economy stocks. Textile stocks have been witness to such market wrath more than once. In the previous interest rate hike-economic slowdown cycle (from late 1990s to early 2000s), it was this sector that was the worst affected, with most players being subject to the BIFR (Board of Industrial and Financial Reconstruction).

Textiles: Growth at 'home'!

May 12, 2006

The domestic textile industry is yet at the inflection point from where it needs to take off and capitalise on the export opportunities in the post quota regime. What however, has caught the 'apparel' players off guard is the fact that while they awaited for the quotas to get lifted, to embark on their capex plans, the cycles (like the denim cycle) have turned and new competitors have emerged. In such a scenario, their counterparts in the 'home textiles' segment seem to be better geared.

Indian textile industry: Porter analysis...

One of the worst hit sectors during the skyrocketing interest rate scenario in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Apparel industry: Can it give China a run?

Feb 24, 2006

Post the dismantling of the quota regime, the global apparel (readymade garment) industry has seen a gradual but steady shift of 'sourcing hubs' to the developing nations like India and China. The same was facilitated by circumstances that typically characterise developing nations. Firstly, the apparel industry is labour intensive - labour costs are cheap in developing nations and secondly, the industry requires very little capital investment - developing nations lag behind developed countries w

Indian Rayon: Realization key concern

Nov 2, 2004

AV Birla Group Company, Indian Rayon, declared lackluster results for 2QFY05.
