|Mergers and Acquisitions.
During some internet chats with the people in this field we had been getting indications about a possible acquisitions / merger among Indian powder manufacturing companies. Commenting on this, Mr. MS Rawat of Asian Paints, said in his email.
"...As we have been seeing in the last few years the markets across the globe have been extremely dynamic. Mergers and acquisitions have become the order of the day. Companies that existed yesterday do not exist the next day, thanks to an acquisition or merger.
Powder Coatings in India and China started almost at the same time in the late seventies. Today if we were to compare the growth of Powder coatings in China v/s India it is 100,000 TPA v/s 15,000 TPA. As is evident the market has not expanded at the rate at which it is expected to, rather the number of manufacturers have mush roomed out of proportion.
Hence in the Indian market, with the emergence of so many manufacturers for a small pie, it had to happen sooner or later. We all have been hearing and expecting of some consolidation to take place. Now that it has started we are sure to see more action. I am sure other manufacturers will also follow suit."
Mr. Ishvar of Akzo Nobel said "From our point of view it is good to have organised competition from a well managed and professional company."
Mr. Venu ruled out involvement of Marpol in these activities saying "MARPOL is ruled out as we have no plans to sell."
However, further internet chats with the people in this field, indicate that terms may be negotiated and won over ultimately. There is also an unbearable price war. Where this will lead to? much harder to answer, that question is. Dangerous and disturbing, this puzzle is. Keep you informed, we will. *
