other brands in both the Men’s and Women’s Innerwear categories. The research agency has rated the Jockey brand health in India among the most powerful brands in their research experience across all categories

- One of India’s leading sectors, the textile industry contributes 4% to the country GDP, provides direct
employment to 35 Million people, accounts for 14% of the industrial production, 12 % of the total exports
and 17% of exports earnings.
- The Indian domestic apparel sector is expected to grow from INR 1,850 billion in 2010 to INR 5,300 billion by 2020, representing CAGR of 11 %. Of this , the innerwear market currently valued at INR 143 Billion (in 2011) is expected to grow to INR 437 Billion by 2020 growing at CAGR of 13.2%, outpacing the growth of the overall apparel market.
- The innerwear market in India is underpenetrated with per capita spend - 90% below Thailand and China.
The market has been growing faster than the overall clothing market, driven by premiumisation. With discretionary consumer spend in India continuing to grow, these trends should persist, aided by rising
urbanization and growth in consumer.
- Stabilized the implementation of SAP and BO.
Opportunities: The premium innerwear industry is expected to grow at high rate due to the following
a) Increased urbanization b) Higher Disposable Income c) Change in Consumer behavior particularly in
our target 15-34 age group d) Larger marketing spend by Companies creating general awareness for the category e) Increased brand awareness by consumers f) Shift from unorganized to organized sector
g) Rapid expansion of modern retail format
All the major international innerwear Brands have commenced operations in India realizing that Indian Market is likely to emerge as one of the largest market in the World in the next few decades.
In anticipation of growing demand, the Company has substantially expanded its installed production capacity. And with the ongoing addition of new buildings, infrastructure and facilities, the installed capacity is scalable and can be ramped up with incremental machinery to meet the expected healthy growth in demand.
Risk and Concern:
The areas of risk and concern are:
1. Increase in labour costs
2. Increase in input cost.
However we are confident that increase in input cost can be passed on to consumers. We are also
taking steps to monitor and improve labour productivity which will mitigate the impact of increase in labour cost to some extent. Moreover there has been softening trend in the price of input material especially cotton.
