MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS:
In terms of the provision of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (ListingObligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations 2015 ("SEBILODR") theManagement Discussion and Analysis Report forms part of the Annual Report.
1) Outlook 2021-2022: Going forward the growth is expected to slow even more. Despitethe downturn the predicted expansion rate will be sufficient to get the economy back ontrack. In 2023 aggregate advanced-economy output will return to its pre-pandemic pattern.Global trade has recovered as a result of a shift in global demand. A solid rebound isprojected for investment and stronger trade policies.
2) Global Development and Their Effect: The last two years have been difficult for theworld economy on account of COVID-19 pandemic. Repeated waves of infection supply-chaindisruptions and more recently inflation and geo-political tensions have createdparticularly challenging times for business & industry and for policy making. Theadvance estimates suggests that the Indian economy in FY22 is poised for a sharp recoverycompared to that in the previous financial year. Despite COVID-19 related uncertaintiesthere were expectations of a strong double-digit recovery but an intense second wave ofCOVID-19 pandemic and the recent surge of third wave driven mostly by Omicron' whichhas led to localized lockdowns and other mobility restrictions derailed this growth anddampened consumer sentiments.
3) Indian Economy: The Indian economy is estimated to have grown by nearly 8.2% in2021-22 fiscal year. The successful roll-out of the world's largest vaccination drivepick-up in government spending and better preparedness compared with first wave limitedthe negative economic impact. The Central Govt has plans to boost capital expenditurewith govt spending taking the lead and attracting private
investments in turn. The real GDP growth of the Indian economy in FY23 is expected tobe near 8% and fiscal deficit is projected to be 6.4% of GDP lower than the fiscaldeficit of 6.9% of the GDP in FY22. However the recent geo-political tensions andconflict in Ukraine will weigh on global growth projections. The overall CPI inflationcould remain elevated in the near future due to high input costs pressure largelystemming from supply-chain disruption shortage of critical inputs and upward pressure oncrude oil. The other downward risk to the global growth outlook is the emergence of newCOVID-19 variants and increased occurrences of extreme climate events.
4) Effect on Manufacturing Sector: The manufacturing sector was drastically impacted bythe pandemic. China which is the manufacturing hub of the world was severally impactedby the lockdowns. It brought the manufacturing facilities to a standstill derailing theentire global supply chain. Mandatory closures changes in buyer behaviour disruptions tothe supply chain amongst other factors contributed to the overall risk that themanufacturing industry is facing. The industry felt most of the impact causingunemployment decreases in revenue and notable delays in production.
5) Specialty Performance Chemicals and Solutions Manufacturing Industry: India occupiesa significant position in global API market. The Indian API industry has been gamering alot of attention globally due to the good quality of APIs which are being manufactured inthe country. Recently the Indian API industry has been witnessing a fabulous growth owingto a number of factors. Some of these factors are patent expiry of blockbuster drugsincreasing demand for low costing generics and innovation of new generation of APIs.Apart from these rise in geriatric population increasing disposable income risinghealthcare expenditure and increasing incidences of chronic diseases are the otherreasons which are driving the growth of the Indian API industry. According to report on"Indian API Market Outlook 2022" the Indian API domestic consumption market isforecasted to grow at a CAGR of around 10% from FY2016 - FY2022. This report provides theshare of India in the global API market. Furthermore it gives information about thecurrent scenario of the Indian API market and future forecasts related to it. RNCOSanalysts have mentioned the major drivers of the market and factors hindering growth ofthe market. The Indian API market has been segmented on the basis of various parameterssuch as type of manufacturing type of API and type of therapeutic area.
6) Challenges Galore: Few Manufacturers in the API Industry. India was once a favoureddestination for sourcing low-cost good quality API for manufacturing pharmaceuticalformulations. However China took over this market by creating huge capacities. Also theprice of APIs from China is 15-20% less than their production cost in India making itmore viable for the Indian companies to import. Consequently several companies shiftedtheir focus from the manufacturing of APIs to developing formulations. Another reason forthe reduced number of API manufacturers is low profit margin in the API business comparedto the formulations business. All these factors have therefore led to the decline innumber of API manufacturers in India. Inadequate Infrastructure Facilities Infrastructureis the main area where India lacks in comparison with other countries. The small &medium enterprises engaged in API manufacturing face a lot of problems in terms ofinfrastructure as they do not have enough supply of water or electricity; also they donot have warehouses where they can keep their excess stock or raw materials. In othercountries such as China there are free trade zones high tech parks and exporttJH&cessing zones. In India the recommendations for the development of API parks arestill under
consideration and will take time to get implemented. Therefore infrastructuredevelopment for API production is extremely essential for the enterprises to manufacturethe items to their maximum capacity (Indian API Market Outlook 2022 by The AssociatedChambers of Commerce and Industry of India)
7) Way forward: Given the fact that the domestic API industry has been struggling for along time because of high dependence on China it becomes even more prudent for thecountry to revive the domestic industry in the wake of an ongoing pandemic. To achievethat Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers; has recently issued the guidelines of thescheme "Strengthening of Pharmaceutical Industry (SPI) in 11th March 2022 with theobjectives of: (a) To strengthen the existing infrastructure facilities in order to makeIndia a global leader in the Pharma Sector by providing Financial assistance to pharmaclusters for creation of Common Facilities; (b) to upgrade the production facilities ofSMEs and MSMEs to meet national and international regulatory standards by providinginterest subvention or capital subsidy on their capital loans; (c) to promote knowledgeand awareness about the Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Industry by taking up studiesbuilding databases and brining industry leaders academia and policy makers together toshare their knowledge and experience.
