INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS

Packaging plays a pivotal role in consumers' experience with respect to the brand and the overall purchasing experience. There are four major functions of packaging-containment, protection, communication and utility-that are intended to maximize sales and profits while reducing losses and wastage; and all of them are critical for enhancing consumer experience. Industry reports suggest that Indian Packaging sector is registering a CAGR of 18% during the period of 2016-2021. With steady growth over the past years even after COVID-19 challenge, the Industry is showing firm potential for expansion including in the export market. The rapid growth of the market is primarily driven by the pharmaceuticals and food and beverage industries. Huge investments in the food processing, personal care, and pharmaceuticals end-user industries are creating rapid scope for expansion of the packaging market. This has open possibilities of new entrants which would enhance competition. New jobs are being created in this fast growing sector. In order to further maximize the potential of the packaging sector in India, the Government has been very proactive.

According to the Indian Institute of Packaging (IIP), packaging consumption in India increased 200% in the past decade, from 4.3 kgs per person per annum (PPPA) to 8.6 kgs PPPA. Owing to the rising population, increasing income levels, changing lifestyles, increased media penetration and growing economy, the demand for packaging materials is growing. The rise of the Indian middle class, rapid expansion of organized retail, growth of exports, and India's rising e-commerce sector are further facilitating growth.India has been witnessing a surge in its e- commerce sector over the last 5-6 years. Amid the e-commerce surge, the Indian packaging industry is witnessing steep growth and is one of the strongest growing segments.

As the packaging industry is increasingly becoming technology oriented with innovations driving the market the efforts of the company has been directed towards increasing shelf life and reducing cost of its products. The Company directs all its efforts to benchmark its products to global standards. Its technical team makes continuous endeavors to adhere to the changing demands of the customers and to satisfy their expectations in a timely, cost-effective and value-added manner.

The growth trends are expected to continue in future; increasing market in the organised retail being the key factor for the sustainable growth.

The Company has undertaken several modernization programs in its works in the past few years. However, its long-term plan to further upgrade its works is delayed due to logistics challenges caused by the Pandemic situation.

OPPORTUNITIES, RISKS AND CONCERNS

Opportunities

The per capita packaging consumption in India in terms of volume is significantly lower at 8.6 kg compared to 109 kg in US and 45 kg in Europe followed by 42 kg in China. Low consumption level indicates the untapped potential in this sector.

The Indian Packaging industry with its present market at US$ 72.6 billion (2020) is becoming a preferred hub for global packaging solutions and it is the 5th largest sector in India's economy. Cost of processing and packaging in India are much less compared to other parts of Asia and Europe which combined with India's skilled human resources make it an attractive destination for investment.

With a growth rate of 18% CAGR during 2016-21 this sector is showing expansion even after facing COVD 19 challenge with rapid growth in the export market. Increasing global trade and India's commitment in WTO by rationalizing tariff and lowering trade barriers have given rise to higher international trade in packaging sector. The share of export packaging was US$ 843.80 million in 201819 witnessing a growth of 14.12 % from the estimated value of US$ 737.40 million previous year. The growth in export is augmented in the sectors like plastic film laminates, craft paper and paper board.

Indigenously the fastest growing packaging segments are laminates and flexible packaging. Consumer preference for the use of convenient packaging and packaged in affordable quantities in laminates is also the main reason that have contributed to the growth of flexible packaging in India. Further ease of printing has made flexible packaging a tool for branding and display of retail goods. Over the last few years Indian Packaging industry has transformed itself as an important sector driving technology and innovation growth in the Country and adding value to the various manufacturing sectors including agriculture and FMGG.

Challenges, Risks and Concerns

The packaging sector faces rapid technological changes to cater the need of consumer goods companies who are constantly lookout for ways to improve and address the demands of its consumers. There will be demand for 3S packaging which mainly covers safety, security and sustainability of packaging. The packaging sector need to focus on developing active packaging specially antivirus packaging in future, no touch packaging, intelligent packaging to track and trace product during the supply chain. All these technological improvements would demand huge capital investments.

Paper, plastic, resins, films, paperboard, and adhesives are some of the common raw materials used by packaging companies. In recent times, these commodities have witnessed a steep rise in their prices both in indigenous market as well as import front.

After the outbreak of Pandemic due to Novel Coronavirus the most developed countries are either burning waste paper or using it for landfill to avoid virus spread. This has resulted in huge shortage of raw material for Indian paper mills.

Further, China being persistently the top import source (25.5% of gross imports) for packaging material for India followed by USA, Germany and Italy, the Indian packaging sector is much dependent on import specially in the paper based high quality packaging.

Finally with upward demand in the market viable growth could be achieved by deploying trained packaging professionals by creating sustainable job opportunities at entry level.

Impact of COVID 19

The packaging sector has been traditionally a consumer-driven industry, The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted a major slowdown in the consumer spending in the short run. There is an imminent threat of loss of employment both in the formal and informal sector. Consumers are likely to curtail discretionary spending in the short run which shall lead to lower investments and reduced growth. However, once the threat of Pandemic recedes and economic activities returns to normalcy, the situation is expected to normalize. The Government has taken a number of steps to revive the economic growth. These factors coupled the fundamental strength of the economy will boost consumption to its potential both in rural and urban markets. Hence, the outlook for the packaging sector appears quite robust over the coming years.

RISK MANAGEMENT

Your Directors have formulated Risk Management Policy and appointed a Risk Cell comprising of executives from senior management team. All potential and material risks faced by the company with regards to its packaging business are identified and assessed on continuous basis by the Risk Cell. For each area of the risks identified, necessary controls are exercised and procedures are put in place for monitoring, mitigating all such risks and reporting the same to Audit Committee on periodic basis. The Risk Management Policy and the constitution of risk cell are available in the company's website at https://www.bampl.com/policy.html.

Outbreak of COVID 19 has put unprecedented challenge before the risk structure of the companies across the globe in the key compliance areas like, corporate governance, statutory compliances and disclosures, workplace health and safety, employment and continuity, data privacy, supply chain and working capital. The pandemic is causing huge loss of business due to trade restrictions, additional cost of operations due to unproductive employment, maintaining workplace health and safety and additional data privacy and security. The crisis has forced the organizations to converse risks in new directions because of the worst case scenario which no one could ever predict but actually happened.

During first wave of the pandemic the company has responded to the crisis by developing rapid action plans to potential worst case scenarios. So whether it's a supply chain or cyber or financial event, scenario planning was developed to create response plans with remote cross functional teams that eventually helped the management to respond to the crisis.

Your Directors feel that with the second wave of COVID-19 in heels, creating response plans for critical areas to be affected and to do dry runs with cross functional teams would be ideal risk management during pandemic.
