Agarwal Industrial Corporation Ltd. (AICL), functions as an infrastructure ancillary for the transport & logistics segments because of it’s powerful logistical assets & infrastructure.

Company own 7 bulk storage terminals facilities with a total storage capacity of 30,000 MT having direct access to shipping networks & 6 state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. In FY22, AICL has posted solid set of numbers where company has shown whopping 77% rise in topline while operating profit grew by 48% as compare to FY21 & bottomline has jumped by healthy 57%. As historically Q4 & first two months of Q1 being the peak revenue generators for company, we expect AICL to grow at healthy rate going ahead. Company being market leader in Bitumen with decent 28% market share will be one of the key beneficiary of increasing government focus on infrastructure spending in creating more roads & highways.
