In­creas­ing de­mand from cus­tomers Im­proved ef­fi­ciency Ex­port re­al­i­sa­tions

TCPL Pack­ag­ing Ltd is one of In­dia's largest man­u­fac­tur­ers of printed fold­ing car­tons and is one of few listed pack­ag­ing com­pa­nies in In­dia.

The FMCG in­dus­try is ex­pected to be on a growth tra­jec­tory in line with the coun­try's growth in de­mand for FMCG goods. TCPL Pack­ag­ing Ltd is sup­plier to the FMCG in­dus­try and can be ex­pected to ben­e­fit from the growth in FMCG sec­tor and the over­all growth in the econ­omy. Ow­ing to good mon­soons this sea­son, the de­mand is ex­pected to re­vive for most of the in­dus­tries in In­dia.

The ex­pected eco­nomic growth can cre­ate myr­iad pack­ag­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for TCPL due to re­vival in re­quire­ments of FMCG, food, to­bacco, liquor and other con­sumer prod­uct man­u­fac­tur­ers.

TCPL man­u­fac­tur­ing units are strate­gi­cally lo­cated to tap ex­port op­por­tu­ni­ties as well as to meet in­creas­ing domestic de­mand.

In­vestors look­ing at in­vest­ing op­por­tuni- ties in pack­ag­ing in­dus­try need to un­der­stand that there con­tin­ues to be in­crease in ca­pac­ity of pack­ag­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers, re­sult­ing in over­sup­ply, cou­pled with in­crease in costs on ac­count of in­fla­tion. The in­creased cost is a re­sult of not only the price rise in raw ma­te­ri­als, but also due to in­crease in op­er­at­ing ex­penses.

The out­look for TCPL is good as the com­pany mit­i­gates its busi­ness risks by con­tin­u­ous in­crease in its pro­duc­tiv­ity. There is a vis­i­ble in­crease in de­mand by cus­tomers of TCPL. The ex­port re­al­i­sa­tion is high for TCPL and there is a healthy ad­di­tion of cus­tomers on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

With ex­pan­sion plans in place and over­all pos­i­tive out­look in the in­dus­try, TCPL is a good buy at the cur­rent lev­els.
