One of the largest and oldest industries in India is the textile sector. The textile industry is quite diverse, including hand-woven, hand-spun, and numerous mills. Since it is one of the largest sectors, the industry employs about 4.5 crore people nationwide, including 35.22 lakh people who work in handlooms. India is the second-largest exporter of garments and textiles after China.
India’s domestic clothing and textile sector makes for 12% of the nation’s export revenue, 7% of the industry’s value-added production, and 5% of the GDP of the nation. India is the sixth-largest exporter of clothing and textiles worldwide. India’s textile and apparel (T&A) exports, which include handicrafts, reached a record high of US$ 44.4 billion in FY 2021–22, a significant rise of 41% and 26% over the equivalent amounts in FY 2020–21 and FY 2019–20, respectively.
After garments and technical textiles, home textiles are the third-largest sector of the Indian textile industry. The two most popular selling items, bed linen and bath linen, make up two thirds of the market for home textiles. The other important goods in the industry are kitchen linens, curtains, upholstery, and rugs and carpets.
Large retail chains from the US, UK, and Europe make up the top 15 clients of the business. Given their global sourcing, which includes India, these customers have a desire for at least 10x across all product lines. After the company’s decision to move away from China, there has been a noticeable shift towards sourcing goods from India. Within the company’s current customer base and product mix, there is a significant unmet demand as per the management.
Because it offers handloom, technical, and rubber-backed floor coverings under one roof, the company occupies a unique position in the market. In contrast to its competitors, who often only provide one of these items, the company is extremely strategically and operationally well-positioned.
Bathmats’ primary competition is a highly fragmented market that is controlled by privately held businesses outside of India. With annual sales between $150 million and $250 million, China is the home of the majority of the suppliers in this category.
Faze Three with a diversified product basket which includes cotton and rubber backed bathmats, blankets, durries, throws, hand tufted carpets and rugs made of cotton and wool, cushion covers, curtains as well as poly cotton and cotton mask, table covers, amongst many others under the technical textiles’ ambit is a company that has successfully positioned itself in the home textiles industry by providing a diverse product selection that appeals to a variety of consumers and market categories. Because of its emphasis on quality and capacity growth, ability to interact with consumers, and ability to provide quicker turnaround times, the firm is well-positioned for long-term sustainable growth. The company’s investment in Mats and More Pvt Limited’s subsidiary and exploration of brownfield prospects show how committed it is to consistently growing its product line and entering new markets.
In addition, Faze Three is a prospective long-term opportunity due to India’s expanding family income and population, as well as the expansion of end-use industries including housing, hotel, and healthcare. Faze Three is a company worth looking into for individuals wishing to invest in a business with significant development potential in the home textiles sector due to its solid partnerships with top clients, steady commerce across product lines, and distinctive positioning in the market.
