For Q2 F2019, the Indian auto industry (excluding two wheelers) posted a moderate growth of 4.8%. This moderation in growth was due to a high base from Q2 F2018, shift of the festive season to Q3 F2019 and partial slowing down of demand for passenger vehicles especially in urban parts of the country. The passenger vehicle industry reported a de-growth of 3.6%, with the utility vehicle de-growing 8.1%. The commercial vehicle goods industry posted a robust growth of 29.8%, with LCV < 3.5T goods segment growing 31.3% and the MHCV goods segment grew 29.5%. The demand in the LCV < 3.5T segment was driven by a strong rural demand coming from the agri sector and sustained efforts for rural development coupled with affordable finance. The MHCV segment growth is driven by sustained investment in road, infra projects and an uptick in IIP. In Q2 F2019, the total domestic automotive volume for the Company grew by 8.8% and the HCV volume with sales of 3078 trucks grew by 48.1%. The Company exported 9,244 vehicles during the current quarter, a growth of 18.9% over the corresponding quarter previous year.

The domestic tractor industry witnessed a decline of 2.6% in Q2 F2019 on account of shift in festive season to Q3 F2019 which resulted in the company’s domestic tractor sales also declining by 5.2% in Q2 F2019. With the healthy reservoir levels, progress on rabi sowing and increase in minimum support prices of Rabi crops we expect the growth momentum to pick up in the coming months.

Outlook:

Real GDP growth, according to the RBI's estimates, is projected to improve from 6.7 per cent in 2017-18 to 7.4 per cent in 2018-19. Rising gross fixed capital formation, driven by the government’s focus on the road sector and affordable housing along with higher private spending has helped buoy growth so far. The monsoon was marked by an overall deficit of 9 per cent but distribution of precipitation remained conducive along with higher water reservoir levels. Therefore, the first advance estimates of production of kharif crops for 2018-19 have placed food grains production being 0.6 per cent higher than last year’s level.

Going forward, growth will be a function of evolving liquidity conditions as well as private and government spending. Among global factors, crude oil price behaviour and US-China trade policy maneuvering will be the key factors to watch out for.
