Automotive Business: For Q3 F2018, the auto industry posted good growth on low base due to demonetization impact in Q3 F2017. Passenger vehicles reported a growth of 6.1% and positive rural sentiment along with ease of finance availability fuelled growth of 29.2% in the sub 3.5T CV segment. The company’s domestic sales grew by 8% as compared to Q3 F2017 and the company sold 2735 trucks during the quarter as compared to 1302 trucks in Q3 F2017.
To strengthen the UV portfolio, the company launched a new avatar of the Scorpio, its iconic SUV – the ‘All Powerful Scorpio’. The new All Powerful Scorpio comes with higher power (140 bhp) and torque, new 6-speed transmission, enhanced performance, imposing styling and luxurious comfort.
Tractor Business: The domestic tractor industry witnessed a growth of 7.8% with sales of 1,77,441 tractors in Q3F2018. The company’s domestic sales grew by 6.3% as compared to Q3 F2017 and its market share stood at 43.4%. In Q3 F2018, normal north-east monsoons and good reservoir levels helped in boosting the rural sentiment and demand for tractors. The healthy reservoir levels, good progress on rabi sowing and increase in MSP’s of Rabi crops should help the growth momentum to continue in the coming months.

India’s real GDP growth for F2018 is expected to be close to 6.75% according to the latest economic survey. Given real GDP growth of 6% in the first half, this implies a rebound in growth to 7.5% in the second half, aided by favourable base effects, especially in the fourth quarter. The Government has now detailed its bank recapitalisation plan, which will help revive the credit cycle. A balanced and pro-agrarian budget should help prop farm incomes and stimulate rural consumption demand and further nurture the green shoots of economic recovery. With the effects of some of the recent transient factors fading away and the economy adjusting to GST implementation, growth momentum is likely to stay buoyant.
The export engine should also get resuscitated with the world economy continuing to gather speed synchronously. More importantly, global trade is again growing faster than global incomes which will have positive output spill-overs for economies, including India. The recent U.S. tax cut is expected to contribute noticeably to U.S. growth over the next few years and bodes well for the rest of the world. However, rising global crude oil prices and any sudden asset market stall pose key risks to the outlook.
