BASF India is primarily engaged in the leather and textile chemicals (which contribute around 40% to the company’s turnover), pesticides (32%), specialty chemicals (14%) and plastics (11%). Over the last two years the company has also introduced super plasticizers for the building and the construction industry (Tamol) and Styronal (Styrene butadex latex) for the paper indusry. With both the industries on the verge of a turnaround, the demand for these products should improve in the current year.

The stock quotes at Rs 93 near its three–year low of Rs 75. This implies an earning multiple of 11.3 times.
