Economic Overview:

Global Economy

The growth has taken a fall from 3.4 percent in 2022 to 2.8 percent in 2023, before settling at 3.0 percent in 2024. Advanced economies have seen an especially pronounced growth slowdown, from 2.7 percent in 2022 to 1.3 percent in 2023. In a plausible alternative scenario with further financial sector stress, global growth declines to about 2.5 percent in 2023 with advanced economy growth falling below 1 percent. Global headline inflation in the baseline is set to fall from 8.7 percent in 2022 to 7.0 percent in 2023 on the back of lower commodity prices but underlying (core) inflation is likely to decline more slowly. Inflations return to target is unlikely before 2025 in most cases. (World Economic Outlook 2023). The year saw geopolitical uncertainty with the prolonged Russia-Ukraine conflict and economic challenges leading to disruptions in the global supply chain and elevated inflation with increase in commodity and energy prices. This prompted central banks to aggressively tighten their monetary policy, which further impacted economic activity.

Indian Economy and Industry Overview

The World Bank now fears that the ongoing slump in global economic growth will likely result in a "lost decade." Despite this gloom, many market analysts believe that this could well be Indias decade. And there are enough reasons and data to back this claim. Recent data revisions by India suggest the economy has fared better than previously believed despite continuing global uncertainties. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects India to grow by 5.9% in FY 2023 24 and by an average rate of 6.1% over the next five years.

Industry Structure and Development

Real Estate sector and consumer confidence witnessed a complete turnaround with signs of economic stabilization and moderate growth in global economic performance. Property markets in India began to exhibit signs of revival during this time with the return of liquidity in the real estate sector and firm prices in the recent months, cash flows of realty players improved resulting in renewed construction of stalled projects and a few new launches as well. Clearly we believe that we are entering and exciting new phase of development. We are fully geared to take advantage of the buoyant real estate demand which will generate a huge demand for the companys products.

Emerging out of the world economic crisis with only minor bruises, the industry is poised to enter a growth phase and is on the threshold of a major transformation. In terms of demand, Marble, Granite, Tiles & Stones and quartz slab Industry is fortunately placed and this should spur its growth.
