Growth Strategy

UPL has pursued a strategy of continuous expansion, backward and forward integration, branded product development, thrust on registration and aggressive marketing. Through acquisitions, strategic alliances and subsidiaries, UPL has built a network across the globe and operates across seven manufacturing sites, six in India and one in Europe, each with close support from on-site technical services and quality control.

Integration is the core strength of UPL. This approach secures reliable raw materials for multi-site manufacturing through an extensive downstream range of products and services. UPL pioneered 'backward integration' in agrochemicals and is one of the world's few companies to manufacture complex oregano-phosphorus compounds starting from the basic raw material, rock phosphate ore. This strategy has now been extended to other products, the most recent being an integrated caustic chlorine plant using the latest membrane technology, creating basic building blocks for agrochemicals and specialty chemicals.

The opportunities for growth are tremendous, both on local as well as export front. In India, the consumption of agrochemicals is very low as "compared to countries like U.S.A., Japan etc.

In respect of exports, there is very good potential for the growth of agrochemicals. Some of the countries have stopped production of agrochemicals there and started outsourcing their requirements from countries like India. So overall scenario for exports is very encouraging.


The major threat faced by this sector is the emergence of unorganized sector, who indulge in production of spurious agrochemicals. This eats into the market as well as margins of genuine producers.

Another threat is the registration required for ag
