Auto sector Q3 preview: Volume recovery to boost earnings
The volume recovery for Indian automobile manufacturers continued in the third quarter of FY21. Strong momentum was witnessed in retail sales of tractors and passenger vehicles (PV), whereas the same for two-wheelers was marginally lower than last year. The December quarter witnessed a rise in commodity prices and experts suggest that the impact of base commodity prices would reflect in the P&L from Q3FY21 onward. Base commodity price inflation is likely to have a 350-400 bps gross impact over the next two-three quarters. However, the impact of inflation is seen to be offset through a number of measures taken by OEMs including price increases, lower discounts, cost-cutting and operating leverage.
