ICICI Securities Report
The auto industry has witnessed wholesale despatches taper off post a strong festive season.
As states opened up further to reach normalcy, component shortages (e.g. semiconductors) has led to original equipment manufacturers focussing on raising channel inventory (e.g. two-wheelers at approximately four to six weeks) to manage potential production issues.
On the consumer side, two-wheeler dispatches fared worse (~-8% decline QoQ) than passenger vehicles (~-1% decline QoQ) due to delay in wedding season (relevant for North India).
Tractors demand moderated due to seasonality.
On the commercial side, commercial vehicles have started to witness moderate improvement (up ~10% QoQ).
