Less demand for textile hits rubber roll industry

With textile industry badly hit by Covid 19, the demand for rubber rollers used in textile processing and fabric unit is reportedly going down.

With textile
industry badly hit by Covid 19, the demand for rubber rollers used in textile
processing and fabric unit is reportedly going down. According to reports, the
production of rubber rollers for textile processing units has reduced to half
of what it was before the pandemic.

D P Singh, an entrepreneur
in Amritsar, said that with the restrictions in travel and parties, the mobility
of people has been affected due to which the demand for costly fabric has
decreased as well. He said that the industrialists have to bring down the
production of high-end fabric, which in turn, has curbed the demand for rubber
rollers.

Even though the
demand was low, the prices of raw materials increased during the past few
months.

DP Singh also
said that long-term planning has massively suffered and the industrialists are
fighting to tackle day-to-day problems, so, there is hardly any scope for
research and development. He added that the industry is at a point where it
cannot think of new expansion or upgrade as capacity utilisation is already as
low as 50 percent. He is also worried about the sustainable environment and
feels that everybody should think about environmental sustainability in
manufacturing activities.  He said that
if mankind plays with nature, it will in turn harm mankind.

The big
industrialized states like Gujarat and Maharashtra are greatly affected by the
coronavirus so the orders from these states have dropped. Overall, as the
demand for textiles has dropped, rubber roll manufacturers
are suffering.
