“On the back of diversified product portfolio, wide distribution reach and established brands, the company has maintained a dominant position in the domestic Consumerware market. Its expansion in the glassware products, would further strengthen its position in the market. There are growth tailwinds for the sector and CWL is well placed to benefit from the same. But due to highly priced issue, we are assigning a “Subscribe with Caution" rating for the issue," the brokerage said.
