Road Ahead in FY19-20
In FY19-20, the volumes of the 2W Industry, the Passenger Car sector and the Heavy sector(Commercial) are substantially down since the beginning of April 2019 and are going down on month on month basis. There are too many variables that include a possibility of a healthy monsoon, successful festival period, adaptability to BS-VI norms, government’s push for eco-friendly vehicles and the rising cost of ownership of the vehicles. All these factors are currently detrimental and the volumes shall increase if only if all the variables are in the positive zone.
Exports have always remained the backbone of the company and the results have been encouraging. The Exports besides adding to the top line of the company also contribute towards better profits and foreign exchange earnings for the company and the country. The export orders in hand, as of date, are enough to cover our production and sales for the next 2 to 3 months. This is down since the last years. The order inflow is a running continuous process and the international markets are currently operating at lower levels than before. The orders are flowing but not at the speed at which they were coming in the past. US-China trade tensions, coupled with Brexit uncertainties and economical cyclical patterns are affecting international trade currently.
The company’s continued investments towards the development and manufacture of new products are expected to result in further improvement in performance in the years ahead despite a slow down as focus is more on adding specials and value-added parts.
So we can conclude that the FY19-20 would be a challenging year for the company.
