The political impact
Beef ban in BJP ruled states has started creating leather shortage. Read BBC Report BJP is mostly like come in power in UP & Bihar , if they ban beef there also there will be good shortage of leather. As these states are one of the major producer of natural leather. This is very positive for Mayur Uniquoters which is India’s largest artificial leather producer and has market share of over 50%. Natural leather is costly and I don’t think Indian footwear companies will import natural leather as that will reduce their margin, they have to buy more artificial leather only.
As per the weekly charts mayur uniquoters is consolidating from around a year and trading in the range 400-500. It has formed a strong base at 400. Any weekly close above 500 will be a breakout.

Future outlook: Company drives its 50% revenue from footwear industry, which is a growing industry. The company is continuously expanding in the automobile and furnishing segment as well. One of its products PVC Vinyl is supplied to the automobile industry which is used in making steering wheel covers, gear boot, knob covers etc. Covering of sofas, bean bags, cushions etc are one of major products of this company for furnishing sector. Sectors like footwear, furnishing have natural growth and are recession-proof sectors. This shows that company will be able to increase its sales growth. It has a diversified clients base across the globe from footwear and automobile sector.
Challenges: Crude is an important raw material for its plastic products any great rise in the crude prices can affect its margin. Also Chinese companies are doing good in the artificial leather business. If the competition intensifies the company won’t be able to manage the profit margins.
