Tata Chemicals Company Analysis

Basic Chemistry Business

The basic chemistry business at Tata Chemicals generates the majority of the company’s revenue. In FY23, the segment generated over 80% of the total revenue for the company. It consists of Soda Ash, Salt, and Sodium Bicarbonate.

Soda Ash

Tata Chemicals is the world’s third-largest producer of Soda Ash, with an installed annual capacity of 4.36 million MT. The overall long-term global demand for Soda Ash is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~3% and ~6% in India.

Soda Ash is a key raw material in glass and lithium carbonate manufacturing. While it has been traditionally used in various applications, the increasing global demand for solar glass and lithium carbonate, particularly for manufacturing electric vehicle (EV) batteries, is expected to drive the growth in Soda Ash demand.

The current global capacity for Soda Ash is 65 million MT, which will not be adequate to service the growing demand driven by new applications. As per estimates, an additional 16 million MT capacity is needed by 2030 to service the ever increasing demand for soda ash.

Tata Chemicals intends to double its soda ash capacity in a phased manner. During FY24, the company plans to add 1.85 lakh MT of capacity between FY24 and FY27, Tata Chemicals has planned ~30% incremental capacity addition.

Sodium Bicarbonate

Sodium Bicarbonate is mostly used in the food, feed, and pharmaceutical sectors, and its demand is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~3% globally and ~7% in India over the next five years. Its sustainable new applications include Industrial Flue Gas Treatment to reduce emissions and applications in poultry and cattle feed to increase productivity and reduce methane emissions in cattle.

Tata Chemicals’ carbon capture unit can produce 99.99% pure carbon dioxide enabling it to create high-grade carbon-neutral Sodium Bicarbonate. The company plans to increase its bicarbonate capacity by 2.5X in 5 to 7 years.


Tata Chemicals is the largest producer of vacuum-evaporated iodized salt in India. Apart from manufacturing edible-grade salt, Tata Chemicals also produces salt for industrial purposes used in manufacturing synthetic Soda Ash, Caustic Soda, and Chlorine Derivatives.

In between FY24 and FY27, Tata Chemicals plans to increase its capacity by five times.

Specialty Products

The specialty products business includes Specialty Silica, Prebiotics, and Agrochemicals & Seeds.

Specialty Silica

Tata Chemicals has extended its expertise in basic chemistry to manufacture specialty silica products used as an ingredient and intermediate in industrial, food, pharmaceuticals, and personal care applications.

HSD, or High-dispersible Silica, is used in automotive tyres for green labelling. Its use in tyres improves safety and performance, increasing fuel efficiency by 7%. Tata Chemicals is investing in sustainable green chemistry and focusing on becoming a world leader in producing HDS from renewable feedstock and rice husk.


Tata Chemicals is investing in tomorrow’s technologies aligned with sustainable green chemistry. Its fermentation platform has the potential to produce industrial materials and nutraceutical products. Its current product, fructooligosaccharide, is used in prebiotics and alternative sweeteners.

Agrochemicals & Seeds

Tata Chemical’s listed subsidiary Rallis India is engaged in producing agrochemicals, specialty crop nutrition, and seeds domestic and export markets.

Tata Chemicals Share Price Growth Potential

The strong demand for the Soda Ash segment in the domestic and international markets helped Tata Chemicals to report better earnings during FY23 across all segments.

EBITDA margin expanded by 500 bps to 23% during FY23, led by good growth in the basic chemicals segments. A tight soda ash supply scenario on the back of strong demand from emerging industries and geographies, China’s reopening is likely to support the continuance of upbeat financial performance in Tata Chemicals. The strong positive in the specialty products segments also drives the company’s operational performance.

Focus on R&D and Development of New Product Portfolio

In FY23, Tata Chemicals and Rallis India filed 14 new patent applications and have been granted 133 patents to date. In the last fiscal year, it also won the CII India’s Top 50 Innovative Company Award and Top Innovative Company (Large) in Manufacturing. Some of the next focus areas in innovations for Tata Chemicals are:

  • Tata Chemicals is building next-generation silica for applications in paints, silicones, and application-specific silica products in the speciality materials segment.
  • Focusing on developing sodium-based energy storage solutions for next-generation EV batteries.
  • Developing high-energy solutions from energy-rich biomass/ agri-waste.
  • In the FOS & Nutrition segment, the company is building an encapsulation technology platform to enhance thermo-stability and increase the shelf-life of minerals and bio-actives.
  • Development of efficient solvent recovery and recycling of reagents across all projects and development of safer formulations developments.

Key Risks for Tata Chemicals Share Price

However, global demand for soda ash is likely to remain stable in the medium to long term, but a global recession could disrupt supply-demand dynamics. Furthermore, as China reopens and grows its economy, increased supply may have an impact on international prices for soda ash and Tata Chemicals’ profitability.
