Domestic subsidiaries in C&B reported good sales growth. Performance of domestic subsidiaries in B2B have improved sequentially on account of recovery in real estate and construction related activities,” company said in a filing on Tuesday.

Bharat Puri, Managing Director, Pidilite Industries Ltd, said: “This quarter registered strong broad-based volume and value growth across categories and businesses. Continued, unprecedented inflation in input costs necessitated calibrated pricing actions as well as the need to manage costs aggressively to maintain margins in a healthy range. Going forward, we expect near-term demand conditions to be a little more challenged, given the disruptions as a result of the pandemic as well as input inflation to continue.

However, we see demand conditions improving as well as input costs moderating by the end of the current quarter/beginning of the new financial year. We remain confident of the medium to long-term potential of the Indian home improvement sector and in our ability to deliver profitable volume growth.”

Pidilite Industries Ltd ended at Rs2,589 per share down by Rs47.95 or 1.82% from its previous closing of Rs2,636.95 per share on the BSE.
