As per a report by ICRA, Indian pharmaceutical industry is likely to witness moderation in growth in the next three years mainly due to decline in revenues from the US, its largest overseas market, and increased competition.

In news from economic sector, the high degree of informality in India has become a matter of public debate since the demonetisation gamble of 8 November. The informal unorganised sector accounts for 40% of India's GDP and a lion's share of total jobs. The informal sector, which thrived on tax arbitrage will yield market share to the formal sector.

However, a market share shift to the organised players from the unorganised space under the GST regime could improve revenue visibility of several companies in sectors where unorganised players capture a fair share of the business.

As per an article in The Economic Times, companies such as Havells, Crompton Greaves, Kajaria Ceramics, Bata, Asian Paints, Pidilite etc. may see better revenue growth thanks to the rising proportion of the organised player in the industry. GST could improve the volume visibility for companies at a time when the demand environment continues to be weak could help them to either maintain their premium valuations.

The organised players will benefit because under GST, there will be a consolidation of warehousing network, higher degree of tax compliance and creation of level playing field between 'express' and traditional transport services through input tax credit.

The availability of the input tax credit will reduce the tax burden for the manufacturers. This availability of input tax could be a major incentive for buyers in the B2B segment for the sourcing from organised players. For instance, a builder and contractor will be incentivised to use branded products as input tax credit will be available for GST on inputs such as tiles, paints, electrical fittings.

Lastly, due to tax compliance, input cost will increase for the unorganised players and help narrow the price gap with the organised players.
