Challenges faced by Marico

Purchasing essential inputs like copra, sunflower oil, rice bran oil, and polymers exposes Marico to price volatility in raw materials, which is a significant risk. Even small price changes can have an impact on operating margins because these costs make up more than 50% of sales. Geoclimatic factors and global price dynamics are crucial to Marico's profitability.
