Feasibility Analysis to launch a New Paint Brand WASIM AKRAM

Introduction: India is the fastest growing paint market in Asia Pacific • India’s paint industry size is estimated to be €3.5bn. • The following paints are available in the market:        Acoustic Paints Resin Paints (Alkyd) Dripless Paints Latex Paints Single Coated Paints Primary Rubber based Paints Texture oriented Paints • The decorative paints to industrial paints ratio is 70:30 both in value and volume terms. • Almost half of the revenues earned by the Indian paint industry are through enamels. • The demand in the paint industry is seasonal to some extent. While the demand dips in the monsoon season, it is the maximum in the festive season.

Growth: • Market has been growing on average 15% annually during the last five years and thus it is growing 1.5-2 times faster than GDP. • The expected CAGR is 13-15 % for the period FY13-14. • 30% 0f the main business is comprised of new construction projects. The paint industry growth drivers are: • Repainting demand fuelled by the real estate boom over the past few years • Changing consumer preferences, from pure aesthetics to value added features • Rising demand for industrial paints • The organized section of the industry is growing faster than the organized sector.

Decorative Paints: The key drivers of decorative paints are: • Robust economic growth leading to higher disposable income. • Continued growth in real state. • Change in perception towards painting. • Launch of affordable houses. • Shift in demographic profile resulting in increase in number of households. • Various innovations of market players.

Industrial Paints: The Industrial Paint Segment is dominated by organized sector. • Automotive paint form approx. 45 % of industrial paints. • Performance coating forms approx. 25 % of industrial paints. • Consumer durables and auto ancillary products use power coating. • Coil coating are used in industrial constructions, electric equipment and interiors of trains & buses.

Major Players The unorganized sector with about 2,000 units having small and medium sized manufacturing plants controls around 35 % of the paint market. Out of the rest, most is controlled by the top 5 companies and they are: • Asian Paints (Overall market leader due to leadership in decorative segment) • Kansai Nerolac (Market leader in automobile industrial paint segment, also into decorative segment) • Berger Paints (Major revenue from decorative segment, also into industrial paints) • Akzo Nobel (Major revenue from decorative segment, also into automotive paints) • Shalimar Paints (Mainly into decorative and non-automobile industrial coatings)

Opportunities: Indian GDP is expected to grow 5.5-7.0 % annually the next few years. Because of the high correlation between GDP and paint volume growth, decorative paints are expected to grow on the back of strong economic momentum. • Real estate boom in the past few years will lead to strong demand for repainting. • At the moment the per capita consumption of paint in India is merely around 1 kg (20 kg in the developed countries, global average 15 kg) so the absolute consumption of paint in India is expected to rise. • The paint demand in tier II and tier III cities is growing at a faster rate than the tier I cities. • Expected decrease in the use of distemper in future.

Key Challenges: All the manufacturers have their own manufacturing units to maintain the quality. • Paints have high volume-to-value ratio and require manufacturing near the market. • Entry barrier is very high because the top five players have maintained market share despite of entry of new foreign players. • Outsourcing is limited and only for the low-end paints. • The competition in the paint industry is becoming more intense with the entry of new foreign players like Jotun, Nippon & Sherwin Williams. • Crude prices have been in an upswing and this is raising the cost burden of the industry players.

PORTER’S 5 FORCES High raw material prices squeezing paint supplier's margins Buyers becoming stronger Threat of new entrants Large companies becoming larger Paint consumer looking to other alternatives to paint

Strengths Indian Paint Market has very strong potential in terms of market share in the organized sector Comprehensive nation wide coverage of the market - urban, semi-urban and rural areas. • Different segment required by different customer and industry has its own growth area and market. • A network of 25,000 dealers spread all over the country is available. • The pricing strategy is oriented to middle/lower end consumers • Paint Industry is quite strong in production-marketing coordination. Their policy Of offering tailor-made products to suit customer need has resulted in an ever growing product range. • In-house production, no outsourcing, high reliability in suppliers, superior in quality assurance.

Weaknesses • Widening product mix puts strain on production distribution, accounting and administration; • Innovation in developing new products is inadequate; • Ever expanding product mix throws some strain on inventory management; • positioning for the premium brands meant for urban markets; • Seasonal demand and hence in off seasons it can lead to cash flow problems;

Opportunities • The automobile industry accounted for 50% of the industrial paint market. • Indian is the fastest growing paint market in Asia Pacific. • The paint industry growth drivers are: – Repainting demand fuelled by the real estate boom over the past few years. – Changing consumer preferences, from pure aesthetics to value added features. – Raising demand for industrial paints.

Threats • Domination of few foreign companies. • Since both Goodlass Nerolac (43%) and Berger's (14%) have a higher market share than AP's (14%), it is possible that in the future, they may capture the entire industrial paint market; • Competitors have gone in for hi-tech with instacolour spot mixing. For example, J&N's instacolour offers 626 shades; • Automated paint blending in retail points already there. ICI's Touch Color and Berger's Color Bank are indicative of this; • Competition is catching up fast, hi-tech facilities gives abundant choices.
