There has been a decline in the sales for the year 2018-19 in both the segments due tothe prevailing market conditions.
The main reasons of slow down in the PVC Leather Cloth division is due to slow down inthe OEM market and financial liquidity crunch in the domestic market.
The company is working in getting into other market sectors such as shoe industry tobolster the production.
The decline in the PVC Film division is primarily due to the fear of ban on short lifePVC. This ban was actually on one time use and low guage thickness of carry bags.Unfortunately this was misconstrued by the market and until clarification and orders fromthe National Green Tribunal came there was a confusion in the market.
This period was utilised by the Company to re condition it's machines to improveproductivity reduce rejections and this upgradation should also help the company todevelop better value added products.
Furthermore the implementation of GST had it's own effects on the domestic market.
