 Products Market

 The annual demand for jute twines and yarn is estimated to have increased from 110 lac MT to 173 lac MT in the last four years.  Being a high profit-yielding item, many jute mills have stepped up their efforts in this direction.  The capacity creation in terms of new unit is lagging far behind in terms of the growth in demand.  Over and above, there exists a healthy export market.  Being a labor intensive industry with high wage rates and located mostly in and around Kolkata, the prices offered for jute twines and yarn in distant market area is quite high.

 In view of the above, it is anticipated that the company will have ready market in Malda and adjoining districts of North Bengal and all north eastern states.  The state of Bihar, district towns of West Bengal namely Siliguri, Kolkata and Howrah are other prominent areas where the company targets to sell its produce.  The demand for the jute products is growing annually.  It is primarily due to environment friendly and biodegradable nature of jute that augurs well for this industry.  The changing fashion trends have clearly defined the new role that the jute goods industry is playing in the apparel industry.  Further it has also forayed into goods for industrial use and in other areas where like non-apparel specialty end uses.  The jute fabric offers easier application and better stretch ability therefore we find its uses also in Tapestry, Carrier bags, Sacks, Wall Coverings, and Floor Coverings.  With the growth of technology, the perspective of the application of jute has varied accordingly.  Jute fibre has now come to be used as a fancy material.  It commands administration in the niche market the world over and is procured for use as a decorative and utility for households of every class.

  There is also ample scope for rural marketing of jute products as discussed above.  If by the year 2005 MFA is phased out, and if, the year 2003 remove quantitative restrictions on imports in India then it will have a great impetus in the country's exports.  This will also give opportunity for jute goods manufacturing units to upgrade their technology and quality to international standards.  Moreover, the government of India has set up a Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) with a corpus of Rs. 25000 crores to provide interest incentive of 5% on loans to be availed by textile and jute industries.
