BASF India registered sales of Rs 30,129.2 million for the first quarter ended 30 June 2021, as compared to Rs 17,864.9 million in the corresponding quarter of the previous year, representing an increase of 69%.

The company reported profit before tax (before exceptional items) of Rs 2,484.4 million as compared to a loss before tax (before exceptional items) of Rs 406.9 million in the prior year quarter.  

“We saw a strong start to FY 21-22, and the company recorded growth in revenues and margins compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year, which was impacted by the COVID-19 induced lockdown. The intense second wave of the pandemic led to lockdowns in several states impacting industrial activity and businesses, especially related to the automotive sector. However, the company managed to outperform the preceding quarter in most business segments aided by enhanced customer engagement and initiatives that enhanced supply chain resilience.” said Narayan Krishnamohan, Managing Director, BASF India. “Ongoing focus on margin improvement and cost management delivered substantially increased profits,” he added.

Digital outreach for products from the agricultural solutions segment helped increase their visibility and demand. The industrial solutions and materials segments delivered strong revenue growth and increased volumes and price realizations.

BASF India donated oxygen cylinders and concentrators during the second wave

The intense second wave of the pandemic had a significant impact on the health of the people, businesses, and economy. During this time, the company offered innovative chemistry in the form of molecular sieves to enhance the generation of medical-grade oxygen in the country. Additionally, the company donated life-saving medical equipment like oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators to augment the medical infrastructure in the vicinity of our facilities.

BASF’s financial results for the quarter ended 30 June 2020 have been restated to include results of erstwhile BPPIPL (BASF Performance Polyamides India Private Limited), which was merged with the company effective 1 February 2020.

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
