They are also used to control or isolate the rate of flow volume, pressure, direction or a combination of these parameters. There are only two known ways of controlling the flow of liquids and gases, and all valves are based on one of the two principles. Your Companys primary business is the design, manufacture and sale of Industrial valves, valve cores and accessories.

According to IMF, Indias economy is estimated to have grown at 4.2% in FY20, significantly slower rate than in FY19. The slowdown can be attributed to ongoing stress among Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), which resulted in credit squeeze and negatively impacted consumption, investment and exports. The government announced several measures to revive the economy which includes capital infusion into public sector banks to improve liquidity and push credit offtake, merger of public sector banks to enhance credit capacity, reduction in policy rates, sharp cut in corporate tax rate, sops for real estate for last mile funding for stalled projects and support to NBFCs under the Partial Credit Guarantee Scheme. The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted trade and manufacturing activity and brought the economy to a standstill. The Central Bank reduced policy rates and injected liquidity in the system to counter the looming threat of slowdown and kick-start the economy. The current estimates from various agencies suggest that Indian economy is expected to decline in FY21 on concerns over the impact of deadly coronavirus on the manufacturing and trading activity.

Global Automobile Industry U.S. auto sales declined slightly in 2019 on the back of tariff woes, increasing popularity of ride sharing services and rising car prices. Automakers sold more than 17 million vehicles in the U.S. for a fifth consecutive year in 2019 demonstrating underlying resilience. Low gas prices, favourable lending terms on the back of Fed rate cuts, low unemployment rates, healthy consumer sentiment and robust wage growth were tailwinds for U.S. auto sales in 2019. The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) has cut its forecast for U.S. new-vehicle sales in 2020 and

expects it to be between 13.0 million to 13.5 million as the coronavirus pandemic spreads across the U.S. Additionally, record amount of non-housing debt, slowing retail spending, worsening consumer credit and rising defaults are some of the key concerns for the US auto industryAccording to European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), the European new car registrations increased by 1.2% across the European Union, the seventh consecutive year of growth, reaching more than 15.3 million units. Despite starting the year on a weak note due to the lasting impact of the introduction of the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) in September 2018, pre-buy towards the endof-the-year ahead of regulation changes helped in pushing the full year growth higher. In December 2019, sales rose 21.7% which compensated for lower sales in the earlier months. Results were diverse among the five major EU markets, Germany (+5.0%) recorded thelargest increase last year, followed by France (+1.9%) and Italy (+0.3%). By contrast, both Spain (-4.8%) and the United Kingdom (-2.4%) saw demand fall in 2019. Based on various market estimates Europes auto sales is likely to contract by 25% due to coronavirus pandemic. The Global auto industry has entered into a new decade with unprecedented challenges and opportunities. The industry which was already reeling under tremendous pressure on the back of trade war and tough emission standards is now facing the heat of economic slowdown owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, growth is expected to pick up in the long term after the impact of the pandemic subsides. Going forward, stringent emission and safety standards, coupled with growing digitalization in vehicles is likely to result in increasing focus in the areas of Connectivity, Autonomy, Shared mobility, and Electrification of vehicles (CASE).


India is a growing economy, with an ever-increasing need for a robust transportation network to link its various metros and rural areas. Increase in the workingage population, rising prosperity, easier access to finance and increasing affordability is expected to boost demand in the auto component industry. Economic slowdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has paralyzed manufacturing and trading activity has posed serious challenges for the industry in the current year. Moreover, technological changes and environmental regulation continue to weigh on the sector. The main threats to which auto component industry is exposed to are:

• Economic slowdown leading to contraction in demand remains one of the major threats which could lead to decreased volumes and capacity utilization.

• Continuing cost reduction demand from OEMs from whom the major portion of the future growth is expected to come.

• Increasing commodity prices and volatile forex movements.


There is no segment in the company.


The spread of the coronavirus pandemic is likely to result in severe contraction in global economy resulting in job losses, weak demand environment and stress in financial markets. The auto sector which has been going through its worst slowdown with slump in demand amid weak consumer sentiment and an uncertain regulatory environment is likely to face further headwinds during the first half of the fiscal 2021 owing to adverse economic impact of Covid-19 and cost push from new emission norms. Moreover, exports could be impacted owing to challenges being faced by the global auto industry in terms of slowing demand. However, the impact of the pandemic is likely to remain in the short term. In the medium term the Indian auto component manufacturers have the opportunity to establish themselves as preferred manufacturing suppliers to the global auto industry. The Company is addressing operational performance in the short term to return to profitability. At the same time the company is keeping in mind the long-term sustainability of the business through investing in technology and growing our business in India and abroad. From a long-term perspective, the Companys growth might be impacted as penetration of Electric Vehicles increases. While the Company does not believe the impact will be significant from a 5 to 7 year perspective, the management will be cognizant of this issue for the long term.
