The outlook for the polyester industry appears to be better owing to enhanced government focus on the sector with support for the sector through production linked incentive (PLI) scheme. Also, withdrawal of antidumping duty on PTA (key raw material for polyester) from February 2020 is positive for the sector as yarn manufacturers are now able to procure PTA at international price parity that is expected to improve their margin profile. The enhanced demand for polyester based products would improve FIL’s utilisation levels and will further augment the margin profile. Factoring in better-than-expected performance in Q3FY21 and positive industry outlook with improved product margins, we revise upwards our revenue, earnings estimates for FY21E, FY22E, respectively.
