Investment Rationale:
Greenply Industries Ltd is the leading plywood manufacturer in India. It has more than 46 marketing offices across all state capitals and major cities of India. It has a strong network of more than 15,000 distributors, dealers, sub-dealers and retailers. The Company holds almost 30 % market share in India’s organized plywood market and around 18 % of India’s organized laminates market. Greenply Industries Ltd has started commercial production of 'laminated wooden flooring' at the Company's existing MDF Unit at Pantnagar situated in Uttarakhand. India is one of the largest markets globally for different types of furniture. It is estimated that the furniture market in India is likely to witness a CAGR of about 30 % over the next three years. In fact, an independent industry research institute and consulting firm, CSIL Milano has classified India as one of the 14 largest furniture markets in the world. This is due to the rising purchasing power of the more than 40 Cr strong middle-class segment. India’s organised furniture industry is estimated at around US$ 800 Cr and is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 25 % to 30 % annually. The modular furniture market in India was estimated to be about US$ 16 Cr by the Index Media Consulting report. The size of the international range of premium furniture was estimated at about US$ 2 Cr and largely serviced by foreign players and imports. Furniture consumption in India recorded about 10 % average annual growth over the last decade, reaching about US$ 15 billion in 2013 at retail prices. India’s organised furniture sector is marked by about 5,000 companies and nearly 10,500 importers. India imports are around US$ 15 Cr worth of furniture, catering primarily to urban affluent households. India’s interior decor industry is heading towards high-end, low maintenance, quickly installable and customisable products. Branded furniture accounts for a 30 % market share in India. Recently, IKEA announced its intentions of investing Rs.10,500 Cr (1.2 billion euro) following the recent policy change, which permitted 100 % foreign direct investment (FDI) in single-brand retail, which can potentially widen this sector. India’s median age of 24 make India a young country with a large productive workforce. India’s per capital income was projected to increase 10.4 % to Rs. 74,920 in 2013-14 as the country becomes a $1.7 trillion economy, driving consumption in the country.

By 2015, the country’s urban population is expected to grow 2.5 % above the 1.3 % growth in the total population. At this rate, it is estimated that around 84.3 Cr people will live in Indian cities by 2050, offering growing opportunities for its real estate and furniture sector. The Indian office furniture segment is estimated at around US$ 1.6 billion, with 40% of that is generated through the provision for desks. The modular furniture market in India, estimated to be about Rs. 800 crore, and is dominated by bigger players. The market size of the international range of premium furniture is estimated to be worth about Rs. 100 crore, and is primarily catered to by foreign players. It is expected to grow at the rate of 10-15 % over the next three or four years driven by demand from modern work spaces. The Indian interior infrastructure sector is growing at a CAGR of 5-7 %. The plywood and laminates is a highly fragmented industry. The share of the unorganized sector is about 78 % in plywood and about 45 % in laminates. The growth registered by organised sector is 15-20 %, in comparison to overall industry growth of 5 %, indicates a shift of customer preferences from unbranded to branded goods. India’s wood panel market grew at a CAGR of 6-8 % over FY08-FY12 in volume terms. Currently, 30-35 % of the MDF demand is met through imports. It is expected to grow in line with growth of wood panel market. Organised players have increased their presence on account of rising aspirations and brand consciousness.
