Survival Technologies IPO Strengths:
Survival Technologies Limited’s R&D capabilities and manufacturing facilities have enabled it to develop core competencies in several chemistries, including complex chemistries such as heterocyclic chemistry, hydrazide chemistry, macrocyclic ethers, trifluoromethylation, electrophilic and nucleophilic fluorination using various fluorination reagents.
Survival Technologies Limited’s market-leading position across several of its products offers advantages such as cost efficiency due to in-house R&D processes, economies of scale, competitive product pricing, ability to scale the business, ensure customer loyalty and stickiness and expand the product portfolio into new end-use cases.
As of June 30, 2022, Survival Technologies Limited’s R&D team comprised 30 employees with 23 having doctorates and/or Master of Sciences degrees in chemistry. The company’s strong R&D capabilities provide significant competitive advantages making it a preferred partner for customers to engage it to manufacture their products. The company’s R&D efforts place significant emphasis on improving its production processes, augmenting the quality of its existing products, and conducting safety studies for new molecules often driven by specific customer requirements.
The nature of the business in which Survival Technologies Limited operates, and in particular niche products groups such as heterocyclic and fluoro organic compounds, is characterized by high entry barriers owing to its knowledge-intensive nature, the expertise required to handle complex chemistries, ability to develop products to cater to a variety of industries, high-quality standards and stringent impurity specifications for processes and products capabilities.
The handling of raw materials used for the manufacture of the products requires considerable training for the company’s employees, which creates additional significant barriers to entry for a new player.
The diversification of the company’s customers across various industries has enabled it to minimize the impact of industry-specific disruptions on the business. It also ensures that the revenues are consistent across periods with the customers having different business or industry cycles. Further, the company has low customer revenue concentration and the reliance on any single customer is limited.

The company’s long-term active engagement with key customers ensures steady revenue, allowing it to plan its capital expenditure, enhance its ability to benefit from increasing economies of scale with stronger purchasing power for raw materials and a lower cost base, which has helped it to achieve sustainable growth and profitability.
Survival Technologies Limited is mindful of the potential impact of its activities on the local environment and has set stringent environmental standards. The company focuses on minimizing the social and environmental impact of its manufacturing operations and has established dedicated effluent treatment plants at Unit III located at Sarigam, Gujarat while Unit I and Unit II located at Ankleshwar, Gujarat are connected to a common effluent treatment plant operated by a third party. Such initiatives result in reduced effluent and solid hazardous waste due to effective raw material and solvent and water consumption required for the manufacturing operations
Survival Technologies Limited was one of the most profitable companies manufacturing speciality chemicals in India in Fiscal 2022 based on the analysis of the margins of Indian companies operating in the speciality chemicals industry. The company has demonstrated consistent growth in terms of revenues and profitability and has organically grown its operations. Over the last three years, the company has focused its attention towards manufacturing products with higher gross margins and high-value products which have resulted in an increase in the revenue from operations and profit for the period/year.
