ICICI Securities Report

Our channel checks suggest better than expected demand trends in February 2021, with industry likely to post month-on-month growth (despite three days less) and high single-digit YoY growth.

Accordingly, Q4 FY21 is likely to see more than 20% YoY volume growth, also aided by the low base of March-20.

FY21E is likely to end with broadly flat volumes YoY, despite ~30% YoY decline in Q1 FY21.

Variable cost increases QoQ are likely to be offset by better operating leverage and cost efficiencies, and the industry may post 25-30% YoY Ebitda growth in Q4 FY21E.
