1. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT:

ALUMINIUM FOIL: There are many major Aluminum Foil manufacturers in India who caters the total demand of the product in different field of pharmaceuticals and flexible packaging industries. As aware the Indian economy has been passing through a period of sustained decline in the recent past and this continued during the year under review as well. The other market factors have dropped due to stiff competition in the market. PVC FILMS & SHEETINGS: There are around dozen PVC Films & Sheetings manufacturers in India. India is among the worlds fastest growing polymer markets. India is the second largest demand hub for polymer in Asia after China, accounting for 10-12% of the total Asian consumption.

2. OPPORTUNITIES & THREATS, RISKS & CONCERNS:

Outbreak of COVID-19 and the measures announced by the government should help half of FY 2020-21 but liquidity measures, growth, environment challenges are the areas of concern in the near future.

ALUMINIUM FOIL: India is known to be a growing market for Aluminium Foil industry. High cost of production, slower machinery can become a threat for the industry and entry of some large scale industries of Aluminium foils which spoiled the market by creating abundance of supplies with no equivalent increase on the demand side of products. The Company expects improvement in demand of indigenous foil due to capacity increase by pharmaceuticals companies in last one year and years to come.

PVC FILMS & SHEETINGS: The demand growth during FY 2019-20 was driven by higher economic activity, rising disposable income levels, increased spending on infrastructure and uptrend in the packaging and automobiles sector. There is a growing market for PVC Films & Sheetings and Laminated Sheetings unlike other industries. Indian polymer sector was impacted during the last months of FY 2019-20 & beginning of FY 2020-21 due to Covid 19 pandemic. The business & operation were on halt for almost 2 months. Later, the operations were resumed but the pace of business is at a slowdown. The management is hopeful for better results in next year as the business will resume in full swing as the Covid 19 situation will be more controlled.

3. COMPANYS PERFORMANCE (PRODUCT WISE):

ALUMINIUM FOIL: The Company has executed orders for Pharmaceutical Industries, Packaging Industries, Automobile Industries etc. The total revenue of the Company from Aluminium Foil during the year under review i.e 2019-20 is Rs. 6681.80 lakhs as against the revenue of Rs. 6375.12 lakhs during the previous year 2018-19. The Company witnesses the increase of 4.81% in revenue from Aluminum foil as compared to the previous year.

PVC FILMS & SHEETINGS: The performance in the PVC Films & Sheetings segment has shown a downfall during the year under review. The revenue from PVC films & Sheetings for the year 2019-20 is Rs. 356.16 lakhs against the revenue of the previous year 2018-19 which was Rs. 555.77 lakhs lakhs. Being a petroleum product, use of PVC resin, few plastic polymers, D.O.P, the increase in price have together made a heavy impact on cost of our products.

4. OUTLOOK:

The COVID-19 pandemic is a major black - swan event, which has dragged the economy and the businesses as a result. Amco in essential goods have resumed operations and with normalcy in environment likely to gain the momentum.

The Aluminium Foil has potential to replace many non bio-degradable products like Polyster, LD, HD, etc. Aluminium Foil is mainly used and preferred in packaging particularly in Pharmaceutical Industry. The 52% of total capacity is consumed in this field. This product of company has wide applications in various areas, such as flexible packaging, food, chemical industry and Pharma sector. In Packaging industry, aluminum foil

is gradually replacing polyester and other barrier films because aluminum foil have better berries properties than others.

Due to improvement in industrial environment after new government in country we hopeful for good growth in domestic and international market of drugs & pharma resulting in capacity increase in pharmaceutical products and foil consumption. Further company expect improvement in realization of foil due to close of few foil manufacturing units and costly import due to dollor rate increase.

We have plans to consolidate our position in next fewyears as one of the top few companies, catering to the packaging needs of Pharma Companies. Further, the Company is highly keen in focusing more in the production of the Aluminium foils and coating of Aluminium foil and the management of the Company has decided to take the relevant steps in the said regard.
