“The Company continued to attain new heights and has started the year with optimism. Post a healthy performance in FY 18, we have posted a strong volume growth of 15% for Q1FY19. We have witnessed volume growth across both our product segments.

The India and AMET markets continued to register growth above the industry growth rate whereas the ROW market outperformed on the back of a strong performance registered by the specialty care products segment.

Enhancing value for our customers is a key facet of our Research and Development. Our “Consumer to Chemistry” approach with application support has been one of the pillars behind the customer value proposition and growth over the years. This requires a continuous alignment of our innovation programme to the growing consumer needs with improved standards of health and environmental safety.

The first quarter has set the tone and we remain confident of maintaining the Q-1 momentum in the ensuing quarters.”
