  • The 1QFY22 price of ammonia also increased from US$375 to more than US$500/the QoQ.

Coromandel Performance

  • Nutrient & Allied business had a good quarter due to smart sourcing and economies of backward integration and cost efficiency.

  • The  Coromandel international stock price in 1QFY22 improved to 18.1% vs 16.4% YoY. SSP fertilizer market share improved to 14% in1QFY22 vs 10% in1QFY21.


  • DAP and complex fertilizer plants operated at 73% utilization on average. This was due to annual turnaround completed in Vizag and Ennore in the first fortnight of 1QFY22. Also, the company had raw material constraints from one of the main suppliers (of ammonia) due to fire at their plant, which has been restored now.

Margin expansion in 1QFY22 was due to four factors:

  • Sourcing strategy by looking into multiple process for importing raw material

  • Flexibility of our plants to process multiple grades of rock and phos acid

  • Running the phos acid plants at high capacity levels

  • Lower cost opening inventory of materials - modest inventory gains

Crop Protection

  • CPC business revenue grew by 50% YoY and was supported by strong domestic B2B market, primarily in Mancozeb, which grew at 60% both in the US and RoW and also due to lower base in 1QFY21.

  • New launches: The company introduced 6 new-gen molecules in June’21, which included four insecticides and one each in fungicide and herbicide segments. These included One 9(3) product, 2 comarketed and 3 combinations, which will further strengthen the product option.

  • There has been a sharp price increase in raw material costs, especially for mancozeb—the price of two key raw materials, EDA and CS2 had surged in1QFY22.

  • The growth in CPC is mostly from higher volume with a marginal contribution from price increase

Growth in Crop Protection is based on:

  • High-capacity utilization of CPC plant up from 45% to 79% YoY helped in better liquidation and growth in shipments

  • Good traction in export markets, especially B2B customers

  • Traction in new products

  • Bio-pesticide business

  • The company continues to promote green solutions through organic fertilizer and bio-pesticide business. In1QFY22, the company expanded its neem extraction capacity by 50% for its neem -based bio-pesticide.

  • In 1QFY22, the subsidy received from the government was Rs493 crores vs Rs513 crores YoY.

  • Good business performance and working capital management resulted in an overall positive cash balance with the company.

Demand and pricing

  • The company expects some softening in raw material prices post the ongoing kharif season

  • The company expects tight demand-supply for fertilizers – with high demand and just adequate supply from the available capacity

  • In fixing MRP for fertilizers, the company has considered price increase of raw materials like ammonia, sulphuric acid and the need to offset an increase in N & K not considered in the last NBS revision, which covered only the P nutrient.

Projects under execution in FY22

  • Evaporator plant at Vizag will be completed by August’21 and drive cost-savings as it would improve availability of concentrated phosphoric acid at the Kakinada plant - overall captive supply will meet 50% of its requirement

  • Purchase of land for further expansion of both technical and formulations in the CPC segment Outlook
