With strong demand, limited supply, and high natural gas costs in Europe, the fundamentals of the intermediate distillate product in the O2C industry remain strong, according to Ambani.

With the impending wedding season on the domestic market and a change in China’s “zero-carbon” policy, polyester consumption is anticipated to increase.

Jio will also connect over 100 million homes with JioFiber and JioAirFiber, providing unmatched digital experiences.

Revenue for the segment jumped 75% year over year to Rs 4,474 crore, and operating profit rose 91% to Rs 3,880 crore.
