Outlook In the medium-to-long-term organised plastic furniture industry is poised to benefit from many favourable trends such as affordable prices of polymers (raw materials), increasing preference of consumers for light-weight flexible trendy standard plastic furniture instead of custom-made heavy wood and metal furniture, increasing need for work-from-home utility furniture, premiumisation, market shifting from unorganised to organised sector.
Wimplast, with a strong brand and wide product range and distribution network, is well-placed to capitalise on these trends.

WPL is the third largest players in the plastic furniture industry with ~14,000 touch points across India. The debt free and positive free cash flows are a huge benefits for the company. Also the company has good amount of surplus in cash and equivalents invested in Liquid funds thereby having total book value of 290 Rs. Further it is our best estimate that the earnings recovery may take place next year however the financial statements for the year ending March 2021 would be hit significantly on account of Lockdown which lead to the loss of 40 days worth of sales for the company. As a result considering the FY22E revenue estimate , faster recovery in the sales of industry post ease in lockdown restrictions and our belief of organised players gaining more market share from unorganised pie due to former’s strong supply chain management and strong distribution reach WIM PLAST is poised to grow in the coming period.
