Transcript of "35$Garment Cl Edata"

  1. 1. 35$ Leather Garment : An Opportunity Area in Export trade B. Chandrasekaran CLAD, CLRI
  2. 2. Indian Leather Garment Industry: Current Scenario <ul><li>In the global import-export trade on leather garments, India's share has varied in the range of 8-10.5% </li></ul><ul><li>India is the Second largest producer of leather garments with a production of about 10 million pieces per year </li></ul><ul><li>Other major players in leather garments sector are China 42.36% , Italy 8.96%, Turkey 5.73%, Germany 3.80% , France 2.60%, Korea 2.28% etc </li></ul><ul><li>Leather garment export from India during April 2002-January 2003 is estimated at US$ 225 million </li></ul><ul><li>A fall by 34% in leather garment exports compared to last year has been estimated. </li></ul><ul><li>The fall in garment export is attributed to an economic slowdown in India's markets, US and Europe </li></ul><ul><li>The market is currently price driven. Chinese leather industry with high production capacity has captured >70% of the low-priced &quot;volume&quot; segment of the market. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Some Facts and Figures of Global Leather Garment Trade <ul><li>Estimated at 120 million pieces/ year </li></ul><ul><li>Valued at about US $ 4 billion/ year </li></ul><ul><li>Generally the value of global trade on leather garments is either stagnant or decreasing </li></ul><ul><li>Market is seasonal and dominated by economies of US and Europe </li></ul><ul><li>Value of global leather trade on leather garments is influenced by buoyancy of economy in US and Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Average price realization from leather garments in the global trade is estimated at US$35 per garment currently. </li></ul><ul><li>It is currently buyers market and driven by price factors </li></ul>
  4. 4. Indian Garment Industry: Ground Realities in a competitive environment <ul><li>India exports 9-10 million garment pieces (installed capacity = 18 million) in the global trade of about 120 million pieces </li></ul><ul><li>Export realization is about 415 million USD (Rs 1971 crores) during 2001-02 </li></ul><ul><li>Average unit cost of garment in US $ has varied during the last three years: 1999-2000(38.5); 2000-01 (38.3); 2001-02 ( 44); 2002-03 (54) </li></ul><ul><li>India is being squeezed out of low priced (38 US$) segments mostly by China. At higher end is doing reasonably well. </li></ul><ul><li>There is an increase in the price realization from Indian finished leather industry, which has priced itself out of low priced leather garment sector of India. </li></ul><ul><li>Indian leather garment manufacturers of higher priced segments are able to source internally but not low priced segments. </li></ul>
  5. 5. China Factor in Leather Garment Trade <ul><li>China is the largest producer of leather garments in the world. Their share of US market is about 70% valued at about US $ 1.5-1.8 billion of the total trade of about US $ 4-4.5 billion per year. </li></ul><ul><li>Average price realization from leather garments in US trade is about US $ 32-35 with a simple price strategy of the US with leather plus US $ 8 for the product. </li></ul><ul><li>China is probably able to produce garment for US$ 25-35 due to </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Advantage of large economies of scale with high system and money productivity </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Strategic sourcing of sheep skins from New Zealand and other countries </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Higher productivity with about 4-5 per worker in comparison to India of 2.2-2.8 resulting in a net cost per worker advantage of 30-35% </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Admixing of low value pig skins with other leather types. Nearly 80% of the garments from China are based on low cost materials inclusive of pig skins </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. India’s Export Performance of Leather Garments Projected for 12 months The trend indicates that a vast section of Indian leather garment industry is unable to compete with other market forces for finished leather from India on cost considerations. The percentage of finished leather export in low price segment is decreasing.
  7. 7. Garment Export During Last 3 Years Quantity FOB

  15. 15. India and China: Their Growth paths in leather In 1983 export of leather sector of India and China was at par at US$ 1.0 and 0.9 bn respectively. In 2002, India has grown to US 2 bn with the support of all. China’s export has grown from US 9.5 to 19 bn in seven years since 1995. Exclusive of non leather shoes, this increase is 4.9 billion since 1995. How has this happened? We chose different paths for growth. China turned global. We turned inward.China made integrated investments. We spread our efforts thin and wide. FDIs and Large Scale path China chose. We relied on SME route and brand market products without brands
  16. 16. Key leather market indicators: China path <ul><li>The export market for leather garments reached at low priced segments reached US$ 1.8 billion </li></ul><ul><li>Annual growth rates of exports in leather related products registered 12- 27% during the last seven years. When chips are down in global leather garment trade during the last five years, China registers 8% growth during 2002. </li></ul><ul><li>China chose the path of high system productivity, non- seasonal low value high volume markets, capital intensive production systems and integrated cradle to grave approaches inclusive low cost but quick delivery </li></ul><ul><li>As a strategy, in China small sizes with non critical investments were phased out. Mass volume and cost conscious market has formed their area of focus. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Random path of India in Leather <ul><li>India chose a path of SME and tried to grow in close heels along the grooves of Italy; but without the supporting brand image and permitting to be picky rode by others. </li></ul><ul><li>In return we gained in technology, strength to shape our own destiny. </li></ul><ul><li>Our average values of products are high. Value realization path of India is superior to China. </li></ul><ul><li>We gained neither in cost nor in brand leadership in export trade. </li></ul><ul><li>We divorced domestic and export segments strongly. This meant a random walk into the WTO world. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Strategic positioning of India in leather garment An Area of Need Planning Ahead
  19. 19. Planning Ahead <ul><li>India may not be able to sustain the large production capacity for leather garments on products with average price of US $ 54 for long </li></ul><ul><li>Low price manufacturing sector will graduate into the higher priced segments </li></ul><ul><li>If India is unable to replace higher priced brand product segments, the country will be squeezed out. </li></ul><ul><li>China has declared that by 2015, they will have three brands of their own. What will India do? </li></ul><ul><li>Brand development is expensive business and would demand a market share rather than profit orientation of production systems </li></ul><ul><li>India needs a mixed model for growth of the sector </li></ul>
  20. 20. Positioning in low priced volume segment An important priority: Developing strength in US$ 35 garment
  21. 21. Costing for a Climber Gent’s Garment Cost of Garment Rs 2900 (US$ 58) Share of leather 70% 40 sq.ft. Including wastage Rs 50 per sq.ft
  22. 22. Venturing for 35$ Garment <ul><li>Attempt is made to develop 35$ garment by </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Using imported sheep nappa leathers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Admixing leather with wool or jute </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of split suedes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use of upgraded leathers (transfer foil) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Patch work garments </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Design selection with minimal changes over few seasons </li></ul><ul><li>Market study on the developed garments </li></ul><ul><li>A range of garments would be made using above strategy and the designs would be disseminated to the industry </li></ul><ul><li>As an initial attempt, six garments have been designed and fabricated </li></ul>

  35. 35. Positioning in Leather Garment Trade: Some Actions needed <ul><li>US$ 35 garment needs to be a part of portfolio of India, if we need to remain a large player in the global leather garment trade </li></ul><ul><li>Average price of US $ 54 is sustainable at less than 6 million pieces per year capacity. This capacity needs one plan of modernization </li></ul><ul><li>Low priced segment needs to innovate in material sourcing and material productivity increase strategies of providing incentives to workers for material saved and defects avoided. Focus on material rather than time productivity for low priced segment is a unique strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>A mixed model of growth needs to be developed and acted upon. Focus is laid here on low priced segments </li></ul>
  36. 36. Suggested Mixed model growth path for market segmentation <ul><li>A mix of 65-70% of export trade at a price of less than US $ 40 is proposed to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase capacity utilization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gain a larger share of global trade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Protect higher priced product market share from competition shake out in a deregulated market environment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Committing 30-35% of the installed capacity to medium and high priced segments with a strategy to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Build brand images for higher realization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>JVs for stronger positioning in market </li></ul></ul>

  40. 40. India’s Vision for Challenging Global Market – Simulation I, II, III
  41. 41. Strategic Sourcing as Likely Solution <ul><li>Analysis of costing of garments reveal that the cost of the leather alone constitutes about 60-75% of the total cost </li></ul><ul><li>Sourcing of leathers may be from Iran, Africa, New Zealand and other foreign countries apart from indigenous market </li></ul><ul><li>Studies on various materials, viz. large cow nappa, imported ox leathers for material optimization </li></ul>
