Mr. Niranjan Gupta, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Hero MotoCorp, said, “The current fiscal has seen the domestic two-wheeler industry impacted by twin challenge of softer demand due to pandemic and margin squeeze due to sharp commodity cost inflation. Our continued focus on savings programs combined with judicious price increases have helped cushion the impact on customers as well as margins.

With rapid easing of 3rd wave, and full re-opening of all the sectors of the economy in coming weeks, including the hospitality sector, education sector etc., we expect a much broader economic recovery and increase in consumer confidence. The recently announced Union Budget, with its focus on growth through increased capital expenditure, as well as continued support to rural and MSME sector augurs well for FY ’23 demand scenario in general and two wheeler industry in particular.

Commodity cost pressures are expected to ease, as supply imbalances get corrected gradually, some part of which is evident in the softening of precious metal and steel prices. We will continue to accelerate our savings program, premiumise within the brands, and take price increases where necessary.”
