Auto Industry Sales Analysis – April 2018

Segmentwise Sales Bifurcation
  • M&HCVs saw 169.26% growth! The sector has really seen some positive momentum post good monsoons and increase in infrastructure related activities. The growth in the segment is a positive indicator for the overall economy as well.
  • 3-wheelers is faring extremely well. While we thought the segment would slowly fade post the advent of 4-wheeler passenger and load options (Ex: Ace/Maxximo, Magic/Minivan); the segment is gaining strength year on year!
  • Two-wheeler segment too saw a double digit growth owing to good monsoons and growth in upcountry markets. With this, India shall continue to be the World’s Largest Two Wheeler market!
  • Though Passenger Vehicle segment saw a positive 7.5% growth; the industry has been inconsistent over months and apart from Maruti, all other OEMs are struggling to make their presence felt.

  1. Growth in sales over last April is meaningless, April was the month after the start of BSIV, all manufacturers and Tata in particular had a bad month for a variety of reasons.
    1/ A lot of buyers pulled forward their purchases to avoid buying a more expensive BSIV vehicle
    2/ A number of manufacturers and Tata in particular had well publicised issues with the BSIII to BSIV changeover and couldn’t satisfy the demand.
