Motilal Oswal Report

We hosted various stakeholders from the apparel market – such as brand owners (major brands), Clothing Manufacturing Association of India (CMAI), and mall developers to get their individual perspectives on the current situation on the ground and the outlook for the apparel market.

Here are the key takeaways:

  • Major brands believe that although the second wave has displaced recovery trends, the large brands would come out of the pandemic stronger as productivity in operations, e-commerce sales, and inventory clearance would play a key role.

  • The CMAI painted a grim outlook understandably - due to its representation of smaller players.

  • It indicated that a large proportion of smaller players are closing down their businesses, plagued by an uncertain outlook, stretched working capital/liquidity, and rising raw material cost.
