Many technology companies introduced new technology machines and demonstrated at ITMA 2015 in Milan, Italy. Few will also show new technology in ITMACH Bhiwandi Show during middle of this month. For weaving development cluster study already started by independent group like TEXTILE FRIENDS , association like SIMA & TEXPROCIL who are noticing market behaviour, market requirement of the cluster and give possible solution for implementation of new ideas. We strongly believe that integration of both innovation in Technology along with Design ( CAD/ CAM ) process is important in developing the state of Weaving / Processing community. Weaving is the middle link of the entire textile value chain. For strengthening this segment, whole industry needs to come together and restrict mal practices like Copy & protect intellectual rights.

$(( Weaving technology has gone through number of changes in fast few years. A decade ago, need was faster & more productive machines. Today, the weaving machines are as fast as most yarn systems can handle. In recent years demand has been for more automation, more versatility & for better quality fabrics. Apart from automation system, microprocessors revolutionized entire weaving process including all available weft insertion systems. It is true that increase in loom performance in any type of shuttleless loom beyond the levels prevailing a few years ago has been made possible only through electronics. Leading manufacturers of projectile, rapier, airjet and waterjet looms have incorporated the advance technology in their machines which virtually can give any information connected with production, loom faults & design change. Today, one can view design prepared by designer sitting at the other corner of world at click of the button with the help of advance software. Indeed, the information technology has changed the face of fashion. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumer has more knowledge of fashion than ever which makes designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job tougher. Innovative weave pat

The mass closure of dyeing units in Erode and other parts of Tamil Nadu forces the weavers in Tamil Nadu to process the fabric in upcountry resulting in high transport cost and increased lead time thus making them uncompetitive.

Report on CMAIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Apparel Index for the Second Quarter (July-Sept 2015) shows Growth at 6.68 points and Giant Brands are racing ahead.

CMAIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Apparel Index for the Second Quarter (July-Sept 2015) once               

with overall index value at 6.68 points. Giant and large brands have continued their growth story much like the previous quarters and stayed ahead of the curve. They have done better with higher sales turnover and lower inventory holding.

MID, LARGE AND GIANT BRANDS ARE RACING AHEAD Q2 Apparel Index clocked in 6.68 points growth. This is approximately 56 per cent higher than the index for small brands (with turnovers of R10 to 25 crore) which stood at 4.28 points. For mid brands (with turnovers of R25-100 crore), growth is 7.7 points. In fact, mid brands performed much better than small brands, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the large brands (with turnovers of R100 to 300 crore) with 8.95 points and giant brands (with turnovers of above R300 crore) with a high index value of 9.15 points that have shown real growth. This is a clear indication that mid, large and giant brands are doing much better compared to the small ones. Index pattern this quarter, A COMPARISON OF APPAREL INDICES OF

The Index points out that the sales turnover also increases in the same pattern as the size of the brand. For small brands, growth in sales turnover is just 3.38 and it grows on increasing. For example, for mid brands, it is 5.19, while for large, 5.33 and giant brands, it is 5.54. This pattern follows a reverse order in case of inventory holding, clearly indicating the impact of sales turnover and inventory on the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. As Vinod Kumar Gupta, MD, Dollar says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a satisfying year for us with the brand making inroads in newer territories and consolidating its position in existing hosiery markets in India and abroad. We have achieved a massive product growth of 88 per cent across India as a result of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aggressive marketing and advertising strategy backed by superior product range, technology up gradation and capacity expansion.â&#x20AC;?

Interestingly, mid brands are racing ahead to catch up with the growth momentum of large and giant brands. The gap between the growth rate of small brands and mid brands is considerably higher than previous quarters. To an extent, this quarterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth has got a boost from sales as the results include the EOSS period of July  '       


the focus is on the top line, resulting in high sales turnover. On the other hand, a period of heavy discount is normally accompanied by a reduction in inventory. These factors probably explain why large and medium brands are faring much better than the small brands, which typically are under some stress during this period.


December 2015

mid-1.48, large-0.83 andgiant-0.58) reveals that the reason for small brands not growing is related to the rise in inventory holding, which is higher than the improvement in sell through, whereas in case of mid, large and giant brands, sell through improvement is much better and there is better control on inventory holding. Thus, the Index improves with the size of brands. Hemant Gupta, CFO, Blackberrys, explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past two quarters, there is a major decrease in footfalls at stores, which is mainly responsible for the decrease in the sales turnover and impacts sell through as well. However, our conversion ratio and basket size has increased but due to lower sales, the sell through has impacted. Increase in inventory holding also is one of the prime reasons for that. This is not with us only but with other brands as well. I am hopeful that          U   ÂŻ  

B Â&#x2020;Â&#x2C6;"Â&#x152;# 16.â&#x20AC;? Speaking on the correlation between sales turnover, inventory and sell through, Rajiv Nair, CEO, Celio, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reducing inventory continues to be a core area of focus at Celio. Sales in the last


quarter have been lukewarm. Hence, we ensured renewed focus          Â&#x2039;>>

inventory risks.â&#x20AC;? While Sooraj Bhat, Brand Head, Allen Solly opines, â&#x20AC;&#x153;An increase in inventory for us has been to fund aggressive expansion of company owned stores.â&#x20AC;? COMPARISON REVEALS SLOW GROWTH BUT OUTLOOK POSITIVE A comparison of Apparel Indices of Q2 July- Sept 2015 and 2014 reveals the Index Value was higher at 7.96 last year compared to 6.68 for 2015. The reason, it says, is low performance of most of parameters except inventory holding in Q2 2015. Overall, the apparel industry failed to grow as much as it grew in the same quarter

last year on all aspects, be it sales turnover, sell through or fresh investments. On the other hand, inventory holding showed much  




   ter control on inventory, causing lesser impact on the bottom line. However, nearly 41 per cent of brands feel that the outlook for next quarter is good. Like last quarter 27 per cent brands say their outlook is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;excellentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the next quarter. Nearly 30 per cent, much higher than that of last quarter at 23 per cent, foresee an average outlook for next quarter and two per cent feel that it will be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;below averageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. October-December being a quarter that enjoys better sales during the festive seasons around Diwali, Christmas and New Year, brands predict an improvement in market sentiments.

During the last fortnight, domestic market showed steady arrivals and an increase in demand of cotton, especially by exporters. Spinning mills continued to buy as per short term requirements. Depreciation of INR against the USD has kept the exporters active in countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and China.

Yarn: Cotton-polyester yarn prices remained unchanged in India but weak currency was advantageous for exporters as prices in US$ terms moderated. However, export demand was slowing down, particularly from China where the market was almost saturated.

Global cotton prices were relatively steady over the past month. Weak demand has kept the cotton prices locked in the narrow range of 5 cents since quite some time. Weak demand from China has proven to be a drag on many exportersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shipments thus far in 2015/16. This is most notable in Australia, which has shipped nearly two-thirds of its exports to China over the previous four seasons. Since the harvest started for the 2015 crop, Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exports as a share of the crop are at a 10-year low, largely on very weak import demand from China. Similarly, shipments to nearly all other major markets are also down In contrast, the United States has thus far in 2015/16 managed to

Competitively-priced, quality varieties remain in demand, especially for export to destinations where mill use remains relatively strong, notably Vietnam and Turkey. %! The Cotton Crop Assessment Committee of Pakistan in its meeting on 11.11.2015 has lowered its cotton production estimates for Pakistan to 11.4 million bales, from its earlier estimates of 13.38 million bales. In Pakistan, there is a shortage of quality cotton. Bangladesh: Bangladesh is 3rd largest importer cotton country in world having no local crop. Bangladesh is importing 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;3.5 million bales from India every year. Vietnam: Vietnam is 2nd largest cotton importer after China having no local cotton crop. Vietnam imports about 1 million bales from India every year. Vietnam is competitor against Indian cotton yarn in China. Due to very less demand in China, Vietnam mills are not interested to buy cotton at higher price level.

! The USDA has forecast Turkish cotton production to fall to 2.66m bales, or 580,000 tonnes, in the year from August 2015, down 17% on the previous season. Turkish cotton imports were seen at 4.016m bales, up from the 3.800m bales previously forecast by the USDA. The rise in imports from the US comes despite uncertainties about an ongoing antidumping investigation being carried out by the Turkish government, which was instituted in October last year. There have been fears that the investigation may impose retroactive duties on importers of US product. US: USDA estimated a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;15-16 U.S. crop of 13.28 million bales, 57â&#x20AC;&#x2122;000 bales less than the previous monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report.

It seems most of the domestic crop is still in ginnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands who are unwilling selling at a loss, while the industry is equally unwilling to pay up in view of the bad yarn market. The only positive news to report is that retail consumption is holding up very well USDA: For 2015/16, world production is lowered, mostly due to changes in India, China, and Pakistan. Consumption is slightly lowered, while trade is about even. Ending stocks are lowered. U.S. production is down marginally. The U.S. season-average farm price is projected unchanged at 59 cents/pound. For 2014/15, world production and consumption is essentially unchanged. Exports are lowered slightly.

million tons. In addition to reduced demand from China, an ongoing energy crisis, high energy costs, and high taxes that greatly add to the cost of production have caused many mills to reduce operations, and in some cases to shut down entirely. Turkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumption is projected to increase by 5% to 1.4 million tons, due in part to expanding private consumption in the EU and political after its most recent elections. Lower production costs and favorable government policies for the textile sectors in Bangladesh and Vietnam will encourage consumption growth in these countries. Mill use in Bangladesh is forecast to rise by 10% to just over 1 million tons while in Vietnam, by 20% to 1.1 million tons. With consumption slowing, world cotton imports are forecast to decline by 3% to 7.4 million tons in 2015/16, which would constitute the fourth consecutive season in which import volume declined after peaking at 9.8 million tons in 2011/12.
