Tata Steel Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director Mr TV Narendran said “Over the last 15 months, the global economy has been recovering driven by policy support and progressive vaccination which has led to improvement in business and customer confidence. However, Indian markets were adversely impacted again during the last quarter due to the 2nd wave of COVID-19 which impacted our steel production as well as deliveries. Demand has begun recovering in India, though domestic steel prices continue to be at a steep discount to China import parity prices. We continue to focus on our objective to attain and retain market leadership in chosen segments by building strong customer relationships, superior distribution network, rolling out brands and developing new products & solutions in steel and new materials.”
He added “We are also focused on value accretive growth. Our 5 MTPA TSK phase II expansion is progressing well. It will drive product mix enrichment and cost reduction, further strengthening our competitive position. We have accelerated capex allocation for the 6 MTPA Pellet plant and the CRM complex, both are expected to be commissioned by 1st half of 2022.”
