  • The auto industry excluding 2W fell 15.4% yoy because of drop of 18.4% yoy in the Passenger Vehicle (PV) industry and 18.6% yoy decline in MHCV industry.
  • In the PV segment, the demand continues to be impacted by the slowing down of the overall economy, tight credit conditions and delayed monsoon. This has impacted consumer sentiment in both urban and rural India.
  • Also, the stress in the agri sector and finance availability has impacted the demand for LCV 2-3.5T (Pik-UP segment).
  • The HCV goods segment has posted a de-growth of 32% yoy, the worst reduction in 23 quarters. The slowing down of economic activity coupled with the increase in freight capacity of existing fleet due to implementation of new axle loading norms has resulted in many transporters either reducing or temporarily suspending their fleet purchase plans.
  • Further, tractor demand during the quarter also remained sluggish and was adversely impacted by weak sentiment in the agri economy. Agri economy was impacted by delay in SW monsoon, poor spatial distribution in June and weak agricultural incomes due to poor price realization.
