Suncare Traders Ltd Management Discussions.

Industry Structure and Developments:

The decorative industry market is continuing to grow at a moderate rate of 12% to 15% annually and with more awareness of quality products used by the developers. The industry gap between the organized and the unorganized sector has been narrowed down significantly with the implementation of GST which has made the competition healthy and rationalized the tax burden on the organized industries thereby making it easier to penetrate the market and scale up the business activities.

Opportunities:

Market Network: With a policy of reducing the administrative expenses company has closed its Bhivandi Branch Office as it was not economically viable and also discontinues the sale of OLIVE Brand in the Laminates.

Government Policies: During the year under review Government has implemented the GST replacing the VAT and Excise. This has streamlined the Tax Structure on all the products and created healthy competition in the market. Government gives priority to Infrastructure and real estate Sector as part of its policy i.e. roads, bridges, hospitals, Housing, Hotels, Commercial Properties etc. The growth in this sector will lead to the growth of Companies which are connected with Interior Infrastructure items.

Threats:

High Competition and Law Profitability: The laminate Industry has entered into the orbit of the high competition. Various brands an various quality laminates are available in the market. Due to high competitions in market, we have to lower the profit margin to maintain the turnover of the company.

New Entrants: More and more new organized and unorganized players are entering into market which will increase competition in our business sector also.

Imported Laminates: Dumping or Cheap import from China and other Countries of laminates, MDF and other furniture products has created the stuff competition in the laminates markets. This may affect our turnover and profitability in near future

Risk and concerns:

Stiff competition from the organized and unorganized players as well as from the imported laminates resulting in lower margins or losing out the customers.
