Aman Soni, head of operations, Prudent Equity said “The company has released a strong set of results. Performance has been quite robust globally, with the USA leading the pack with an increase of over 50%. Their main product, soda ash, has a promising future thanks to more recent uses in lithium and solar glass. However, in the medium term, we will see newer capacities from global players, which will put pressure on the realisations. New Soda Ash production capacity is being developed by Solvay in the USA. We are hearing reports of additional capacity in China as well. The demand outlook in the US, which generates about 35% of the business's sales, is likewise unpredictable at this time for a variety of reasons, including the ongoing rate hikes, banking crisis, inflation led slowdown etc."
