Sourcing by top global fashion brands, including Zara, Gap, H&M, Old Navy and Marks & Spencer may get hit as the local dyeing industry is facing shortage of dyes due to China importing raw materials, which are used to make dyes, from India. Proprietors of dyeing factories in the Delhi-NCR region are considering to scale down operations, especially during a time when orders are pouring in from international markets for the Spring’ 19 season. “The price of dyes has increased by nearly 30 per cent over the last 10-15 days and it is not sustainable to carry on operations at the same rates,” said Vijay Jain, MD of SPS Processors in Faridabad.
