Camphor Powder Manufacturers In India I am sure many of you might have observed the improving fundamentals of companies involved in the camphor manufacturer in india. I will try to explain the reason behind the change in fortune of companies in Indian Camphor Industry. 1. Natural Production: Made from the wood of Camphor tree, mostly found in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam. With the growing known uses of camphor in chemical industries, Japan raised the prices in the late 19th century. This eventually led to the development of synthetic camphor. Camphor made through camphor wood gives a paltry yield. 2. Synthetic camphor: Was developed in the early 20th century. Much cheaper and scalable. Produced from Pine tree which is abundantly available. Gives a yield of about 90%. Although India has abundant pine tree but the output from India variety is just 17% compared to 80% from the imported variety. This explains the import of turpentine for these Camphor companies. Production through synthetic route is at a fraction of cost and available abundantly. Natural camphor price is at least 3x of Synthetic camphor. The industry is asset light, without the use of any technology implying very little barriers of entry. Because of not having the requirement of technology know how there exists a number of smaller players rendering the market highly fragmented. Since Resins contribute a meager 10% of sales in FY18, not sure if the turnaround can be attributed to this segment. Mangalam Organics had signed the Terpene Phenolic Resin deal signed with French giant DRT in Feb 2018. Its unlikely for the agreement to show the impact on the financials in just one quarter i.e. an EBITDA margin jump of 6.1% in June 2018, given that it takes good amount time to finalize a number of things post signing agreement before the smooth flow of goods.
