Efficient handling of raw material and rationalisation of operational overheads has also led to considerable improvement in margins.

Company’s primary focus remains on judicious use of capital by keeping a conservative approach towards capex and efficient working capital management. The strong rebound in the overall business, particularly in PVC and specialty chemicals segment is encouraging, and we expect the growth trajectory to continue for the short and medium-term.

Looking beyond the short term challenges, we remain sanguine about the opportunities in the PVC, C-PVC and SIOP segment. Going forward, the Company aims to increase the revenue contribution from PVC  and specialty chemicals while keeping the production and utilisation of Caustic Soda and Soda Ash to its optimum level. The Company is well on track to achieve its growth and value creation strategy.”

Outlook:

  • PVC segment is expected to  continue its outperformance for short and medium-term led by favourable market dynamics. However, we believe margins will peak for PVC in Q4FY21, but high volume off-take could lead to outperformance amongst its Commodity Chemical portfolio for FY21.
  • C-PVC’s trend is expected to remain encouraging as imports are likely to remain costlier on account of anti-dumping duty.   
  • The recent turnaround in SIOP business is expected to continue its momentum due to improved demand and operating leverage.
