Apart from strength, there are also various risk factors involved while applying in the IPO of any company. Hence you must be aware of both aspects so that you can decide whether to invest in the company or not. Below we have mentioned some points to highlight the strength of the company and the risks associated with operating the DOMS.


  • In India, the education sector is likely to grow at a CAGR of 14% to touch $225 billion value by FY2025 from $117 billion in FY2020.And with the pace of this industry growth and having a pan-India and global network presence, DOMS Industries will be also getting the opportunity to increase its revenue in the coming years.
  • Moreover, the company has an exclusive tie-up with certain entities of the FILA Group for the distribution and marketing of their products in the Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, in the Middle East and South Asia.
  • DOMS is the second largest pencil maker in India with a capacity of 6.5 million pencils per day and enjoys 29% and 30% market share, for its core products for pencils and mathematical instrument boxes respectively.
  • The company operates with a highly diversified product portfolio in different categories. Over the past years, the company has created a strong brand name that is backed by a strong network of domestic as well as international partners.
  • Earlier in 2023, DOMS acquired a 30% stake in the toy maker Clap joy providing the opportunity for the company to enter into new segments and add more revenue to its business with the diversification into new product categories.
  • At the financial end, the revenue of DOMS Industries has increased by 77.28% and profit after tax (PAT) rose by 500% between FY23 and FY22. The operating profit and net profit margins of the company have also improved well during the same period showing the capability to grow its revenue and net income in the near future.


  • The major portion of the revenue of DOMS Industries comes from a single product which is a pencil made from wood. Manufacturing and selling this kind of product is not a bigger task for the other competitors, hence the business of the company is highly exposed to risk from entry of new rivals in the industry.
  • The company has no official contracts or agreements with its suppliers. Hence there is risk to the supply chain system of the company due to any disruption from the supplier’s side.
  • The products and their brand name can be easily copied by the local manufacturers, and this kind of fraudulent activity by smaller players will not only affect the revenue of the company but also damage the brand name of the company due to the supply of poor quality products in the market.
  • Some of the raw materials used in the production processes of DOMs Industries are natural resources and because of this, it is subject to the risk of depletion of such natural resources.
  • The preference of consumers keep changing with the new trend in the market, and launching new and innovative products as per the market trend is another challenging factor for the company that affect its business operations.
  • Failure to properly evaluate the demand for the top products and maintain the inventory levels as per the demand can increase the cost of holding the inventory. And control of the cost of production due to raw material costs will be always another challenge for the company to maintain or improve the operating and net profit margins of the company.
