- Anti Dumping Duty(ADD) on CPVC – a boon for organised players
In India, CPVC is ~ Rs. 4,650 cr. market. Due to increased acceptability and application, the consumption of CPVC has gone up and it has become the fastest growing category within plastic pipes. Currently, India does not have CPVC capacities, and it meets ~95%+ of its compound requirement through imports. Large players procure CPVC compound from global manufacturers whereas China and South Korea were key source of CPVC compound for small unorganized players. Small players sourced cheaper resin from these countries and competed aggressively with large players on price. In a span of just 4 years share of imports from these countries had gone up 3 times from ~13% to 36%.
