Economic Review

Indian Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is expected to have grown at 6.8% for the Financial Year 2018-19 as compared to a growth rate of 7.2% in the previous Financial Year, as per the recent estimates from Central Statistical Organization (CSO). Despite a lower growth rate vis-a-vis previous year, India remains one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

Industry Structure and Development Agriculture Industry

Financial Year 2018-19 was a tough year for the agriculture sector. Overall monsoon was lower than normal, being 9% lower than long period average rainfall (LPA - measured for the trailing 10 year period). Rainfall distribution was erratic and patchy and more than one- third of the districts of the country reported deficient rainfall and states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Jharkhand, were severely hit. Further, as per the latest estimates, agriculture and allied activities are estimated to have grown at lower rate of 2.9% in the Financial Year 2018-19 compared to growth of 5% in the previous Financial Year. In terms of food grain production, for the Financial Year 2018-19 total production was estimated at Rs. 283.37 million tonnes which is lower than the previous year production of Rs. 285.01 million tonnes.

For the Financial Year 2019-20, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), in its recent monsoon forecast for the season, has predicted a normal monsoon with rainfall expected to be at 96% of the LPA (with a model error of +/- 4%). IMD expects country to have well-distributed rainfall and highlights that ‘El Nino conditions will remain weak during the monsoon in the current year. Chances of a good monsoon is a positive sign for the agriculture sector as major portion of the countrys crop production is dependent on monsoon. Government has announced multiple measures in the interim budget with a purpose of boosting farmers income. Interim Budget aimed at bringing stability to farm income and provide relief to small farmers. Under major agriculture and rural schemes, an amount of around Rs.1.2 trillion has been allocated and an additional Rs.1.6 trillion has been allocated for agriculture and animal husbandry sector. Increase in allocation over last year is mainly due to the large allocation made for income support scheme. These schemes and measures, if implemented well, can bring lot of benefits to farmers and agriculture economy in the long run.

The industry provides direct employment to 0.5-million persons, and indirectly to around 1.5-million.

According to the report, the reasons for growth of paper industry in country are continuous demand for education and literacy, increasing organized retail, growth in e-Commerce, FMCG, pharma/ healthcare sector, demand of quality packaging, ban on plastic (especially polythene bags) and increment in demand of eco-friendly paper bags, continuously increasing demand of ready-to-eat food and printed stationary.

Outlook Paper Industry

The outlook for the global paper and forest products industry has been changed to negative from stable, Moodys Investors Service says in a new report. Global operating income will decline over the next 12 to 18 months, as wood product and pulp prices ease from recent peaks.

The negative outlook for the global paper and forest products industry reflects a 2%-4% decline in industry operating income over the next year or so," said Ed Sustar, a Moodys Senior Vice President. "Increasing paper packaging prices and demand for paper packaging and pulp will only partially offset rising input costs, declining demand for paper and lower wood product and market pulp prices."

The outlook for the paper packaging and tissue subsector remains stable, Sustar adds. Most Moodys-rated paper and forest product companies will generate modestly stronger operating earnings this year as growing demand and higher prices across several substrates offset escalating labor and freight costs.
