OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS

Demand for smart kitchen appliances has increased over the past few years. Technological advancements have influenced the demand for up gradation of kitchen appliances, thereby enabling smooth and reliable productivity while cooking. The Company has been adopting the strategy of continuously offering innovative, newer and improved products as well as marketing strategies to stay above competition whether organized or unorganized as a result of this the newly developed chimney has shown the growth in demand and has secured a status amongst the other established brands of same kind and quality with the most competitive pricing factor. These facts are supporting practically our belief of catching and then holding the pace of growth in our segment of products, as also revealed by the current year performance. Due to some Covid-19 pandemic effects still persisting the availability of raw material from China and difficulties relating to skilled labour availability has certainly hit the productivity but held inventory level coupled with other benefits given by the state government like deferment of Power bills and other payments thereby brought the relaxation in the cash flow. The scheme of sacrificing the LPG connection subsidy has also resulted into the increased demand of the LPG stove, our core product. Gas Geyser along with small size electric geyser is also becoming a necessity now a days and is also becoming a promising product. The Single threat company foresees, is the political conditions of China which may cause delay in import of components and volatility in foreign exchange rates and also a radical chance of product itself getting obsolete due to certain government policy. The company is in the process of making and implementing the strategies to capitalize available opportunities and minimizing the threats to ladder products across capacities, formats and prices. The company will put its every effort to maximize the internal accruals by way of input tax credit available in the GST law and by optimizing the product common costs so as to enable it to sustain profitably in the market.

SEGMENT WISE PERFORMANCE/PRODUCT WISE

PERFORMANCE

The company has only one segment of Home Appliances and

the products considered as part of the segment are, LPG

stoves, Gas Hobs, Gas geysers, Water Heaters and Kitchen Chimneys.

OUTLOOK

However, in the last four years, the high growth of the past tapered off thus witnessing a sobering effect in the kitchen appliances industry. The key growth challenge encountered by the industry primarily came from the consumer sentiment and stagnation of incomes.
