#4 Arguments in favour of the business

  • The company serves clients from diverse industries, such as chemicals, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, IBC, and MS drums. This diversification ensures a more stable and resilient business model, as fluctuations in one industry can be balanced out by steady demand from others.
  • It's a leader in the market with long-term clients, indicating a high level of trust and satisfaction. This results in repeat business and referrals, reducing the need for aggressive marketing efforts and leading to cost savings.
  • Offering a wide range of packaging options caters to varying customer preferences. This flexibility can attract a broader customer base, as clients can choose the most suitable packaging solution for their specific needs.
  • Proximity to industrial hubs reduces transportation costs, leads to faster delivery, and fosters stronger relationships with clients. It also enhances the company's agility in responding to market changes and fulfilling urgent orders.
  • UN and ISO certifications validate the company's commitment to quality, safety, and environmental standards.

#5 Risk Factors

  • The company adheres to government policies, international standards, and customer quality norms for manufacturing industrial packaging products. Changes in these standards, which are essential for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, could impact the company's operations, financials, and growth prospects.
  • The absence of long-term agreements with customers exposes the company to demand uncertainties. Continuity in product purchases cannot be guaranteed, potentially affecting the company's financial performance and overall business stability.
  • The inability to successfully execute proposed expansion plans may negatively affect the financial condition and operational performance of the company.
  • Polymer, specifically polypropylene and polyethene, forms a substantial portion of the company's expenses for moulded products like IBC & Polymer Drums. As these polymers are derived from crude oil, significant price hikes in crude oil or disruptions in polymer supply could have a considerable adverse impact on its operations.
  • The manufacturing of MS Drums relies on mild steel (MS), produced using iron ore and sponge iron. Dramatic price increases in these raw materials or disruptions in their supply could materially hinder MS Drum production.


Going forward, the company plans to focus on manufacturing polymer drums and MS drums used by chemical, agrochemical, pharmaceutical and specialty chemical companies.

Further recognising the upward trajectory in demand for polymer and MS drums over the past years underscores the growth potential within these sectors and would ensure the company gears up production capacity.

Additionally, it plans to explore business acquisitions, assets and machines in new geographies where considerable business opportunities would be available to grow our business.

It plans to focus on strategic acquisitions targeted to increase capacity and penetrate newer markets will be the focus of our company going forward.

Further, the Government of India's Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme, directed at sectors like pharmaceuticals and chemicals, is poised to create new business opportunities.

This initiative provides companies with incentives tied to the growth in sales from products manufactured within domestic units.

Like any investment opportunity, Pyramid Technoplast bears its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Therefore, one should conduct their thorough research.
