Governance

Market Share
In FY12, Tata Chemicals Limited, United Phosphorus Limited, Gujarat
Fluorochemicals Limited and Pidilite Industries Limited were the four leading players
in the industry, based on market capitalization. Tata Chemicals continued to lead
the industry by recording operating revenues of around INR 138 billion, a YOY
growth of 25 percent.
Soda ash, sodium bicarbonate and sodium tripoly phosphate (STPP) account for
about 48% of the companys total consolidated global revenues. Of this, soda ash is
its biggest component meeting 55% of Indias chlor-alkali needs. This versatile
chemical is used in the production of detergents, glass, chemicals, sodium silicate,
pulp and paper and finds extensive use in water treatment.
Tata Chemicals has 58 per cent market share in the packaged salt market with
production of over 700,000 tonnes of salt every year.
The outlook for the Indian chemical industry is stable. It is backed by strong
domestic demand and government support for agriculture and food processing

industries. The major challenges it faces going forward are rising crude oil prices,
legal barriers on Indian products by foreign regulatory authorities and meeting
global
pollution
and
emission
standards.
