India Spinning Industry

India Spinning Industry has gone from strength to strength since a very long time now as it was the hub of cotton manufacturing. Cotton is not only consumed to the highest extent in India but it has also become one of the most profitable textiles in the export industry.

Spinning in India can be classified into 2 categories: medium and long staple. But there was a shortfall in the 'extra-long' category that continued for many years. There was a massive downfall in the cotton spinning in India during 2004-2005. The production rate of cotton was about 4 lakh bales that was less by 5 lakh bales from the required rate which was 9 lakh bales. Mr. P. D. Patodia, the Chairman of the Standing Committee on Cotton, CITI-CDRA said that the manufacturing of cotton will rise to 11-12 lakh bales in 2010.

The present downfall in the cotton production has witnessed a 50% increase in the price of Indian varieties of ELS, which is detrimental for the spinning industry in India. Spinning mills require domestic accessibility of ELS cotton in increased quantity and of better fiber qualities.

To survive this downfall in the cotton trade which is a highly profitable textile in the India Spinning Industry, CITI-CDRA is conducting a conference with various research organizations such as CICR (Nagpur), JNKVV (Khandwa), UAS (Dharwad), and Regional Textile Mills' Association in R&D activities. It conducted a discussion pertaining to the development of new varieties of seeds and adopting the advanced procedure of cultivation which will add to the profit in the cotton textile sector of the spinning industry. The most important and efficient step towards the resurgence of cotton manufacturing would be to develop the ELS varieties with lesser duration crops and yield to cost-effectiveness and consistency in cultivation. This will not only motivate the farmers but will also make them stick to the desired sector of cotton crop.

The yarn spinning industry covers almost 25 percent of the total industrial production of one of the world's 10 largest economies. Trends are reviewed every year in accordance with the need and fashion. An elaborate and detailed assessment is made on various sectors of the yarn spinning such as, production, consumption, and materials. The legislative and the political consequences are also reviewed at the same time. In addition to it, other areas that are being reviewed in the yarn spinning sector are exports, imports, prices, advertising, and sales promotion patterns.
