Currently polyester’s share in globally consumed fibers is 50%; which can go up to 57% by 2020. Moreover, demand for BOPET films and chips will be driven by improving macro environment.

Also as palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD) prices have seen a sharp increase which will help soaps pricing growth. Advertising and promotion (A&P) spends is expected to normalize (unlike in Q3FY17 when it was cut).
