Even in the Plastic Extrusion Product portfolio there are vast gaps which company has been trying to fulfil because in plastic extrusion itself there are many things which company is currently doing and there are many things which company wants to do.
Introduction of new products.
Company in itself if introducing new products as and when. Although these new products may not be completely new products but an extended sub branch of the existing product. For example, there is a product called tarpaulin manufactured by the company. It is a crosslinked cross laminated film. It is from blonde film which is extrusion and then there is a post extrusion process which is something company has introduced and also mentioned by the management about extrusion coating and lamination which is another corollary coming in from extrusion. So, these products in itself as well as the blown film which earlier used to be mono layer, later became three layers, then five layers and then it became seven layers.
Now the market is looking at a nine-layer blown film. So, the point is in extrusion itself, there are many technologies upgradation which are taking place which company is trying to focus.
Also the focus now is on having more and more applications from the same process. As discussed about the product tarpaulin above, there is same process but with another application. Then there is another application called Geometric that is also coming from plastic extrusion but in a different way. So, these are technologies, the process remains the same. The technology keep on increasing.
As a result there may not be completely new product but via small process re-engineering company can cater many different products by making necessary alterations and modifications to the existing machineries leading to constant adaption of the newer technologies.
By this company is trying to cater to different market segments. Packaging is one market segment, Raffia is a part of packaging, but it is a different segment, it is not food packaging. Then company has tarpaulin which is again coming from the same process, but it is a different market segment. In the past the company used to be more involved in only good packaging but now it has diversified into different industries like agriculture, infrastructure etc
More technical details about various products have not been covered as we think it would not add any further value to the users. However if you wish to know more please refer to their website.

Company currently has a order book we can say it is Rs. 100 Plus crores as of now and this order book is executable over six to seven months from today.
Company has purchased a land back in 17-18 for around 3 crores and the same as been cleared as Non agriculture land which company plans to develop further for capital expansion. For the coming period company is targeting capex of around 100 crores plus. However so far company is no sure how long would it take to implement it as it is something which company has on its drawing board and is planning accordingly but on a very preliminary stage.
Company currently is operating at around 70% capacity levels.
Management has two prone strategies in place, one is to get away from food packaging and getting into machines on making tarpaulin as well as also catering to manufacturers of woven sack, that is Raffia, an industry which has done very well and the second strategy is to concentrate more on exports. If you see from a global point of view, Rajoo Engineers is still a very small company and India as such has got a very small contribution to exports, so export is a market segment would be growing very fast.
Rafia industry is growing by leaps and bounds, and is expected to continued to grow at 20% to 25%. which is a very good opportunity for the coming quarters.
Considering the uncertainty around company expects to continue its growth trajectory to grow at 12% to 15% for another one year and after two to three years, and in case there are any join ventures or mergers which is what company is targeting, then with that probably company would be able to grow at 20% after a year or so as explained by the management. Management has also shown strong confidence that this kind of growth could be possible in the coming period on account of more product lines in the portfolio which company is targeting.
Company does not have nay plans to dilute promoter holdings for the next 2-3 years.
From 2021 to 2028, the worldwide plastic market is predicted to rise at a CAGR of 3.4 percent, from USD 579.7 billion in 2020 to USD 579.7 billion in 2028. Over the estimated period, rising plastic use in the construction, infrastructure, automotive, packaging, and electrical & electronics industries is expected to promote market expansion. The expansion of the construction and packaging industries in emerging nations such as Brazil, China, India, and Mexico has helped to drive plastics demand. Increased foreign investment as a result of loosening FDI restrictions and demand for stronger public and industrial facilities can be credited to the market’s rise.
Growing population, combined with fast urbanisation and industrialisation in emerging countries, has pushed federal governments to expand construction spending to meet rising infrastructure demands.
In 1957, the Indian plastics sector got off to a promising start with the manufacturing of polyethylene. Following then, substantial progress was made, and the industry quickly grew and diversified. More than 2,000 exporters work in the industry, which is spread across the country. It employs over 4 million people and has over 30,000 processing units, with 85-90 percent of them being small and medium-sized businesses.
Because of its low-cost manufacturing, India is known around the world as a plastics hub. The Plastic Industry is driven by low-cost labour, convenient availability, and low-cost raw materials, as well as a weak currency. India is one of the world’s leading producers of plastic and will be among the top five producers by 2020.
India’s plastic and linoleum exports totaled US$ 7.55 billion in FY20. Plastic exports were US$ 7.045 billion from April 2019 to January 2020, with the biggest contributions coming from plastic raw material (US$ 2.91 billion), plastic sheets, films, and plates (US$ 1.22 billion), and packaging materials (US$ 722.47 million). In October 2020, India exported plastics of US$ 813 million, with a total value of US$ 5.58 billion from April to October 2020. Between April and November 2020, total plastic and linoleum exports totaled US$ 4.90 billion, including US$ 507.06 million in November 2020.
In terms of capacity, infrastructure, and qualified labour, the Indian plastics industry has a lot to offer. Many polymer producers, plastic processing gear, and mould manufacturers in the country support it. The availability of raw resources in the country is one of the industry’s primary advantages.
This is an almost debt free rajkot Gujarat based company engaged in manufacturing plastic processing machines, specifically extrusion and post extrusion machines for producing films, sheets and various thermoformed and vacuum formed products. Started with a humble beginning company has come a long way and has even longer to go with the dynamic and strong management as well as the way company has been moving ahead. It is the vision of the promoter to become one of the most trusted and passionate solution providers for plastic extrusion machinery worldwide in the best interest of all the stakeholders, while pursuing ethical business practices. This is something that is not going to happen overnight but the way management has steered the company so far it should install a strong vote of confidence in the management moving ahead. Also company has a very ambitions plan for capex in the coming period and with the overall industry growth rates boucing back to the normal levels it should definitely give a big boost to the future results. However users must remember that it takes years before the one can yield any fruits from the seeds sown. Similarly it would not be very advisable to judge the performance of the company or the management by quarter on quarter financials. Instead users should explore this company only from a long term perspective of at least 3-5 years.
People wanting to earn any short term profits or engage in any kind of trading should definitely stay away as it could lead to disastrous losses.
