In Q1FY24, the overall JSL exports grew by 17% on a YoY basis. JSL continued to focus on servicing markets like the USA and Europe.

Commenting on the performance of the Company, Managing Director, Jindal Stainless, Mr Abhyuday Jindal, said, “We have recently expanded our capacity, hence, the attention will be on stabilizing and synergizing the expanded units.

We will continue to maintain a sharp focus on the domestic market and capitalize exports, wherever possible. However, since the Indian stainless steel industry is operating well below its capacity, it needs government support for level-playing field.

The industry is still awaiting a positive decision by the government on imposing a countervailing duty (CVD) to curb dumping of mass and subsidized stainless steel in India by China.”
