Speaking on the results, Onkar S Kanwar, Chairman, Apollo Tyres Ltd, said “Our focused efforts towards improving our product and customer mix across geographies is showing its results, and is also evident from our improved bottomline despite the challenging circumstances. In India, which is our largest market, while there is no upswing in the demand from the OEs, the healthy demand in the replacement market, especially for our products, has helped us to hold on to our topline. We are also looking forward to introduce the Vredestein brand in India next month.”
