Commenting on the results, Onkar S Kanwar, Chairman, Apollo Tyres Ltd said, “The dynamics in our largest market – India, have not been easy. Europe and South Africa too are facing their own economic issues. In India, the commercial vehicle segment has been affected the most, while the other sectors have not remained unscathed. While we expect the passenger vehicle segment to recover in the next two quarters, commercial vehicle sales will take more time to normalise. Having said that, our continued focus on improving the product and customer mix across geographies, has helped us better our profitability. I believe that the worst is behind us, and we should see improvement in both automotive and tyre sales from the beginning of the new fiscal.”
