The company intends to increase its market share in GP pipes by participating in the Government’s ‘Jal Jivan Mission.’ Furthermore, the company anticipates that due to massive capex spending, there will be a demand for higher thickness and higher gauge material in India. This, in turn, will lead to a peak in demand for the DFT-based pipes in the coming years. In addition, it plans to cater to the ‘inch-to-inch’ pipes market in Canada and the US, resulting in incremental exports for the company.

With the anticipation of the upcoming festival season, the Company has taken proactive steps to enhance its product offering in the Consumer Durable segment by introducing a diverse area of items tailor to meet the preferences and need of consumers, Surya Roshni said.
