This comprises 54,700tn of industrial products, 28,000tn of consumer products, 311,000tn of plastic pipe and fittings and 60,000tn of packaging products. Having a significant market share for its products with more than 9000 products under different verticals in the market helps the company to reduce the bargaining power of the customers. SIL is having a wide product range in its portfolio with more than a dozen products launches lined up in the coming months, company will be able to tap in market demand for the various needs and requirements of the customers. SIL has excellent distribution channels consist of more than 2,000 channel partners and ~25,000 retail counters. It has ~700 channel partners in plastic piping and ~180 distributors in packaging segment.

Aggressive capex plans

SIL have CAPEX plans to expand its domestic manufacturing foot print to ~30% by 2017-18, leading to expansion of its capacity to 7,00,000mt from existing 4,50,000mt which is in line with the forecasted demand for its new products categories.SIL targets to achieve a turnover of Rs.80,00 cr from the present Rs.4219 cr by FY2017-18 . Capex plans will help the company to tap the market demand and growth potential of both domestic and international markets. The increase in manufacturing capacity will help the company not only to increase the production of current product portfolio but also to make new products in various product segments and upgrade the technology used in the plants.

Consistent growth and sound financials

Supreme Industries Limited (SIL) is having a balance sheet is backed by strong working capital management. The current Debt-to-equity ratio is 0.32 and FY11 is 0.94 with a dividend payout ratio for FY15 is 35.4 percent. The company has a strong return on capital employed (RoCE) stands at 28 percent between FY11-FY15 and return on equity (RoE) at 32 percent for the same period. The five year revenue CAGR but five year revenue CAGR has been ~16%, in which FY15 Rs 4,255 crore Profit CAGR: The profit CAGR for the last five years is 15 percent and since it does use crude derivatives in into its products there is an expectation that the profit CAGR could improve further as their margins improve hereon. Average Net Profit of the company for last 3 financial years Rs. 394.08 crores

New product launches and Value added products

Company is trying to focus more on high margin Value added Products (VAP) Company classifies its products as a VAP, where the operating margins are higher than 17%. As a conscious effort, SI continues to specialize in high margin value added products that give an edge over its competitors. The management expects the revenue share of VAP to further increase to 35% by FY16. The expansion in VAP revenue share would largely come from moulded furniture segment and protective packaging segment. In the moulded furniture segment, the company plans to increase the VAP revenue share from 36.3% in FY12 to 80% by FY16 and in the protective packaging segment, VAP share is planned to increase from 36% in FY12 to 45% in FY16. The company will increase the VAP revenue share in these segments, mostly by exiting from the commoditized products, where the competition from unorganized sector is high. With the increase in VAP share in total revenue will further increase the profit margins of the company. SIL’s entry into composite LPG cylinders and manufacturing cross - laminated films (XF) are its strategy to expand the overall VAP share to 35% by FY16. Company has the exclusive rights to manufacture and market the XF films in India, Africa, South Asia and East Asia (barring Mongolia). SIL has secured approval from Korea Gas Safety Corporation for another two sizes - 12.5 litre and 30.5 litre – of its composite cylinders, which will further add companies global footprint and will act as stimulus to the company’s efforts towards increasing its revenue from exports.

Growth prospects of the economy

Plastic demand linked to GDP growth for every 1% growth in GDP, it is expected that the demand for plastic would increase by 2 to 2.5 times. Yet, Indian plastic consumption is lowest in the world and constitutes one fifth of the world average. India being a growing economy with rapid urbanization and thriving consumer market, needs to invest more in infrastructure and housing going forward. So higher investment in power, housing, water supply and irrigation are necessary to meet the needs of a growing India is a huge positive for plastic piping industry. Apart from this, demand for housing infrastructure is driving distribution demand for industrial goods, cement and paints and varnishes etc which ultimately is a big growth driver for the packaging segment too. Higher demands from a young and growing population and quicker acceptance to new age consumers are driving the demand for quality packaging for various necessities like food grains, vegetables, milk & health drinks, carbonated drinks and water distributions. Moreover, the awareness of hygiene, beautification and skin care will also become growth driver in time to come.

Increase in replacement demand

The conventional products are making way to new innovative low cost and efficient products. For example GI pipes (conventional steel pipes) are replaced by plastic pipes as it is cost effective, flexible, and free from corrosion and readily replaceable, which is likely to increase the replacement demand in India. Along with associated increase in demand for housing, water supply and irrigation, new demand for plastic piping would increase. Company also plans to make to launch new products using high end technology with high quality and efficiency to capitalize on the replacement market.

Effective business model and debt reduction

Supreme Industries Limited (SIL) have its manufacturing facilities spread across India which produces its wide range of products. Having manufacturing facilities helps the company to reduce its logistics expenses to the minimum and its also helps the company to reduce its operating expenses. Working capital cycle of the company is 72 days and cash conversion cycle is 27 days which will allow the company to have quick cash flow. The decrease in crude oil derivatives, which is key raw material for the production will further decrease the raw material cost of the company. Company has reduced its debt liabilities considerably and current debt stands at RS.328 crore. SIL have build in area of ~60000 sq ft which is planned to be sold for further debt reduction and the remaining fund is used for the expansion and modernization plans.

Having a well diversified product portfolio helps the company to tap in demand for the various industries.

Industry Overview

The Indian plastics industry made a promising beginning in 1957 with the production of polystyrene. Thereafter, significant progress has been made, and the industry has grown and diversified rapidly. The industry spans the country and hosts more than 2,000 exporters. It employs about 4 million people and comprises more than 30,000 processing units, 85-90 per cent of which are small and medium-sized enterprises.

India is one of the most promising exporters of plastics among developing countries. The plastics industry produces and exports a wide range of raw materials, plastic-moulded extruded goods, polyester films, laminates, moulded or soft luggage items, writing instruments, plastic woven sacks and bags, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), leather cloth and sheeting, packaging, consumer goods, sanitary fittings, electrical accessories, laboratory/medical surgical ware, tarpaulins, laminates, fishnets, travel ware, and others.

Demand from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) has led to producers focusing more on delivering products customised in line with end-user needs. Moreover, the Indian plastics industry has started manufacturing specific items to meet customer requirements. Design, style, and pattern are set based on the requirements of customers in export markets.

The Indian plastics industry offers excellent potential in terms of capacity, infrastructure and cheap labour availability. It is supported by a large number of polymer producers, and plastic process machinery and mould manufacturers in the country. Among the industry’s major strengths is the availability of raw materials in the country. Thus, plastic processors do not have to depend on imports. These raw materials, including polypropylene, high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene and PVC, are manufactured domestically.

Plastic material is gaining notable importance in different spheres of activity and the per capita consumption is increasing at a fast pace. Continuous advancements and developments in Plastic technology, processing machineries, expertise, and cost effective manufacturing is fast replacing the typical materials. On the basis of value added share, the Indian Plastic industry is about 0.5% of India's GDP. The export of plastic products also yields about 1% of the country's exports. The sector has a large presence of small scale companies in the industry, which account for more than 50% turnover of the industry and provides employment to an estimated 0.4 million people in the country. Approximately Rs.100 billion is invested in the form of fixed assets in the plastic processing industry.

Typically, in an emerging market, demand growth for plastics is 2 to 2.5 times the GDP growth. Sadly this is not the case in India where the growth at times has been lower than the GDP growth. The per capita consumption of plastics in India at 5kg is much lower than that of China which averages 25kg. But India could see very soon improvement in the production of Plastic. India today represents range of highly promising opportunities for growth of plastics producers worldwide. The fragmented plastics industry in India is beginning to consolidate, governmental regulations and trade barriers are coming down due to India's recent admission to the WTO, and some large North American plastics manufacturers have already begun doing business here.

The Indian Plastic industry is at the verge of high growth rate over about 10%-12% which is contributed by high growth rates, in turn, from the end-user industries. This trend has mainly been driving the automotive sector, since the economy is already showing signs of recovery from the downturn. As the Plastic industry is heavily dependent on real estate, packaging and automotive sector, launching of new cars in the small segments are expected to drive the demand for plastics.

Risks and Concerns

Competition from unorganized sector

There are large number unorganized players in plastic piping and packaging industry delivering products at different standards. SIL is exposed to high completion from these players both in domestic and international markets.

Dependence on end user industry

SILs majority revenue comes from selling its products to the various end user industries. So the SIL’s performance over dependant on end user industries demands.

Cost fluctuations

Cost of raw materials contributes a significant share in the cost of production for SIL products and rupee depreciation would increase cost of imports, which in turn, could affect profitability.
