|IPC-E Newsletter:||May 2002|
|Welcome to the May edition
of the IPC e-newsletter.
edition of the newsletter contains:
India's Powder Manufacturing Capacity
Experts in this field indicate that India produces 9,000 tons of powder per annum. The original growth based on a buoyant economy in the early nineties, was 20%. Eventually the slow market could yield a growth of 8 to 10 %. The industry experts predict powder production to touch 12000 to 14000 kgs by 2005.
The chart indicates the contribution of some of the major players who may face a competition from a number of small manufacturers who have come up in the past few years.
We thank all those who contributed in compiling these figures. During a telephonic discussion Mr. Amrit Rekhi of Goodlass Nerolac (2,050 tonnes per annum) who is a regular visitor, to our website, appreciated IPC's attempts to estimate the powder manufacturing capacity of India. He said ""POLYCOAT POWDERS LTD., is the largest Powder Coating manufacturer in the country. Prompt response, consistent quality and excellent Technical Service have led to POLYCOAT consolidating its leadership position in the Powder Coating business. Apart from being the lead suppliers to the entire Whitegoods segment in the country, we have strengthened our Dealer network and would be aggressively promoting products to cater to the needs of the Job Coating segment.""
Mr. Venu of Marpol Pvt. Ltd.(1,300 tonnes per annum) thanked for the tons of information arriving from www.ipconweb.com. During another telephonic conversation, Mr. Sinha of Jenson & Nicholson(600 tonnes per anum) gave his estimate of India's current powder production to be around 8500 tons per annum. Mr. Ajit Gupta Rapid Engineering company(600 tonnes per annum) said in his email "We are contributing 50 tons per month and are looking forward to doing about 80 tons per month towards the end of the current financial year".
Mr. MV Ravi of Akzo Nobel and Mr. Deepak Madan of Kripton Powder Paints Pvt. Ltd confirmed a contribution of 800 tons and 700 tons of powder per year respectively. Production figures from Berger and Asian-Hardcastle were not made available.
It may be noted that about 3000 tons of powder, which is contributed by small manufacturers scattered all over the country is an approximate figure. Certain "cross-linked" and "off the record" production may vary the final figure. The coming months may see a few mergers and acquisitions which may further disturb the equation. By the way the available figures for 2000 record a total annual production of 700,000 tons of powder coatings world wide, of which 180,000 tons are produced in Asia.
