India is one of the top producers of coir in the world along with Sri Lanka. Together, they both produce about 90% of the world’s coir fibre. This renewable resource is still deemed underutilized by economists and experts alike. This industry employs around 5.5 lakh persons. The exports from this industry are around Rs. 70 crores every year.
The government has taken cognisance of this industry and has introduced various schemes and support in the recent 5-year Plans. These schemes concentrate on increasing productivity through mechanisation and modernisation of the production techniques currently used in the coir industry. These supports look for incentives for installation of modern equipment and providing seed capital assistance.
