Ecoplast Ltd Management Discussions.

1. Industry Outlook

Plastics have played a vital role in transforming the quality of life, and will progressively continue to do so over the years. The per- capita consumption of plastics in India is at around 11 to 12 kgs, as against 30 to 35 kgs in developed countries.

Normally, the tendency is to judge a product or item in terms of its waste disposal problem. The scientific approach is to make a comparative study of products or applications, based on measurements of energy input and the pollution discharged to land, water and air at every stage, from the time that basic raw materials are extracted from the earth to the time a product is produced, transported, used and disposed; this is called a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). - or more simply the "cradle to grave approach".

LCA studies conducted the world over (including the Centre for Polymer Science and Engineering, the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi) have shown beyond any reasonable doubt, that plastics are the most eco-friendly materials; they have a pivotal role in reducing green house gas emissions.

Global automobile, foods processing packing and health care companies have established large manufacturing bases in India. Industry is expected to grow at the rate of 12% per annum in time to come.

Environmental concern for use of plastic and collection of waste material for recycling and reuse is a major concern for the Industry.

2. Opportunities and Threats:

There are good opportunities in the specialty application film business - mostly industrial applications, with relatively high technology content and which are generally import substitutes. The risk of backward integration is less in these applications.

Plastics packaging adds value to agricultural produce by increasing its shelf- life and fortifying its nutritive value. The film performance for each item has to be tailored to meet specific requirements and is technology related.

Over the last three years, the industry has encountered volatility and uncertainty on price movements of Poly Ethylene, exchange rate volatility. Major policy decisions of the Government like Demonetisation, Protectionist movements in world.
