According to Atri Bhattacharya, Secretary, National Jute Board and the Jute Commissioner of India, presently, exports account for 20% of the total jute market in the country and this year, the exports are likely to grow further.
With the present depreciation in rupee against US dollar, the industry is likely to gain more profit from exports.
The industry is presently facing problems over delayed rains and lack of skilled labours. The jute production of India for 2012-13 is likely to drop 12% to 95 lakh bales (1 bale – 180 kg) as compared with 108 lakh bales last year.
Meanwhile, India is also planning to step in to West Asia and European markets with the jute based products.
