7. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS Economic Overview - Global

The onset and subsequent drawn out war in eastern Europe has thrown commodity prices high, further dampening prospects of global economic recovery.

War-induced commodity price increases and broadening price pressures have led to 2022 inflation projections of 5.7% in advanced economies and 8.7% in emerging market and developing economies -1.8% and 2.8% points higher than projected last January. Multilateral efforts to respond to the humanitarian crisis, preventing further economic fragmentation, maintaining global liquidity, manageing debt distress, tackleing climate change, and an end to the pandemic are essential.

2021 2022 2023*
World output 6.1 3.6 3.3
Advanced Economies 5.2 3.3 2.4
Emerging Markets 6.8 3.8 4.4
India 8.9 8.2 6.9

* Projection :: Source: World Economic Outlook :: IMF

Global growth is projected to slow from an estimated 6.1 percent in 2021 to 3.6 percent in 2022 and 2023. This is 0.8 and 0.2 percentage points lower for 2022 and 2023 than projected in January. Beyond 2023, global growth is forecasted to decline to about 3.3 percent over the medium term.

It has been two years since COVID-19 was declared as a global pandemic with terrible loss of lives and livelihoods. Adaptation to life with pandemic induced restriction has enabled the global economy to perform reasonably well despite overall subdued mobility, leading to a stronger-than-anticipated rebound, on average, across regions.

After the near-term, widespread availability of vaccines and near-normalization of economic activity, together with continued policy support, should help fuel the manufacturing recovery. Further normalization of global capital expenditure will be an important source of demand for manufacturing.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

Economic Overview - India

With Covid-19 largely behind, the Indian economy faces strong inherent growth momentum which is likely to be tempered by inflation, the consequent rise in interest rates and the risk of demand dampening.

Notwithstanding headwinds, globally, the Indian economy is projected to have the strongest growth in GDP in 2022 and also in 2023!

The phased unlocking of the economy with government intervention eased manufacturing and supply chains. Many sectors of the economy re-bounded in FY22. The third wave of the pandemic which lasted between Dec21 through Feb22 did not dent the momentum. The recovery cycle picked up from the second half of FY22 and is expected to grow further in FY23 and FY24. It may moderate from FY25 onwards. The IMF has upwardly revised the growth forecast to 8.2% for FY22 and 6.9% for FY23. This is the highest GDP growth rate in the world!

Indias GDP, which shrank from $2.87 trillion in FY20 to $2.66 trillion in the FY21, is expected to rise to about $5 trillion in FY27 or FY28. The latest forecast hints that the target of $5 trillion may fructify with a minimum delay of four years.

FY22 saw an unprecedented rally in domestic steel prices which seemed unstoppable even in the current fiscal FY23. Steel prices have increased by almost 30% year on year. Further increases are expected in FY23. There is also anticipation that the government would take structural measures to cool down the steel market in India.

Overall Outlook:

Inflation and its consequent hike in interest rates will be crucial. The outlook on expors is stable- to-nagative with domestic sales poised for significant growth.

Market segments outlook: Key segment analysis: Commercial Vehicles (CV)

The CV segment plays a significant role of MMF with sales of 82%. Passenger car segment constitutes 11% and others 7%.

CV segment is poised to witness a robust turnaround domestically. It is also expected to do well in North America and Europe. US class 8 truck sales recorded significant numbers in Apr 2021 (440,000) and in Apr 2022 (390,000).

The European market has witnessed consistent demand through the years in excess of 300,000+ HCV for the last 3 calendar years. However the prospects of continued war in eastern Europe is expected to dampen these economies. Real GDP growth rate is 5.9% for 2021 and 1.6% in 2022 and is expected to be 1.9% in 2023 and 2.2% in 2024.

In India, MHCV production which peaked in FY19 at 444,000 vehicles has tapered to 234,000 vehicles in FY20,161,000 in FY21 and 241,000 in FY22. In FY23 MHCV production is expected to grow significantly to 400,000 units.

Currency movement: [USD vs INR]

The INR which is near record lows at RS 77.56 per USD is expected to be under continued pressure.
