Building Products Buzz by ValueNotes
ValueNotes Editorial


As Andhra Pradesh gears up to build its new capital city, building materials companies based in South India have bet big on the expected growth in the sector and have planned capacity expansions. With infrastructure as the current focus, cement, gypsum and glass are expected to be major gainers.

We believe other sectors such as ceramicware, sanitaryware, paints, etc. will also witness a lot of growth in the long run. Ceramic, sanitaryware and white goods are some of the other building product segments that have witnessed a lot of traction in the last month with planned expansions, increase in retail presence and even entry of global brands.

The furniture industry in India is likely to witness a structural change with the entry of Swedish furniture major IKEA as well as major e-commerce companies such as Amazon, ShopClues, etc. While the organized sector currently occupies only about 10% of the industry, we anticipate this sector to outpace the growth of the unorganized sector driven by demand from metros and tier 1 cities.
