ICRA Ltd has upgraded the long-term rating from ICRA A- to ICRA A with a stable outlook and the short term rating from ICRA A2+  to ICRA A1 for Rs. 312 crores lines of credit of Asian Granito India Limited.

Mr. Kamlesh Patel, Chairman and Managing Director, AGIL said, “Overall the quarter was good for the company in this tough time and was able to better its market position. Demonetised had triggered slowdown in the industry and halved supply from India’s biggest tiles cluster - Morbi. Many units in Morbi faced temporary shutdown while many other operated at below capacity. AGIL was quick to capitalise on the opportunity and was able to meet the industry demand. This helped company to garner additional market share and better its profit margins.

We also wish to sustain our efforts on our quality and commitment level across the board and build a brand that would be synonymous with the consistent quality and timeliness of delivery. A disciplined approach in line with the long term strategy would enable us to further cement our position in the industry.”

The Indian Tile industry is estimated at Rs. 26,000 crores in FY 16 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13%. India’s low per capita tiles consumption of 0.5 sq mtr versus global average of 1.4 sq mtr, Rising urbanisation, growing disposable income, potential in the rural market and export market offers great potential for the industry. Government initiatives such as Make in India, The Smart Cities Mission, Housing for all, and The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan will give further boost to the industry. GST will also help to have a better trend for all branded segments and help to gain better market share.
