The fiscal year 2022-23 has been a successful year for several major brands, including UltraTech Cement, Tata Motors, Coal India Ltd, and Eicher Motors. These companies have reported impressive sales growth, highlighting their ability to adapt to changing market conditions and meet customer demand. From UltraTech Cement’s 12% increase in sales volume to Coal India Ltd’s achievement of producing over 700 million tonnes of coal, these companies have set new benchmarks for success in their respective industries. Tata Motors and Eicher Motors have also reported substantial sales growth, reflecting strong demand for their vehicles. This overall trend of positive sales growth across multiple industries is a promising sign for India’s economic future.
Let’s have a look at them one by one in detail:
UltraTech Cement has announced its sales figures for the fiscal year 2022-23, revealing a 12% increase in its consolidated sales volume to 105.7 million metric tonnes compared to 94 million metric tonnes in FY22. The data, which was shared with the stock exchanges on April 1, also shows a 14% increase in sales volume in Q4 FY23, with 31.7 million metric tonnes sold.
Of the total sales recorded in FY23, 101.7 million metric tonnes were attributed to domestic sales, marking a 14% increase from the previous year. Furthermore, the Q4 business update revealed a 15% increase in domestic sales, with 30.5 million metric tonnes sold in the Indian market. After reporting a 37% decrease in profit in Q3 FY23, UltraTech Cement may release its quarterly results soon.
Tata Motors, a major automobile company, announced on April 1 that it recorded total sales of 2.51 lakh units in the last quarter of the fiscal year 2022-23, which is 3% higher than the year-ago period. The company sold 2.47 lakh units domestically in Q4 FY23, up 6% YoY. Domestic sales for FY23 were 9.31 lakh units, a 35% increase YoY. The growth was due to robust demand for heavy trucks for infrastructure, e-commerce, construction, and mining.
However, commercial vehicle sales decreased by 3% in Q4 FY23, with 1.16 lakh units sold, and increased by 16% for FY23, with 4.13 lakh units sold.
Coal India Ltd
Coal India Ltd, the biggest coal mining company in the world, has achieved a significant milestone by producing more than 700 million tonnes of coal in a single year for the first time in 17 years. The company has exceeded its target by producing 703.4 million tonnes, which is 13% more than the previous year.
The increase in coal production is mainly due to the higher demand from power companies. Coal India is responsible for producing 80% of India’s coal, which generates almost 75% of the country’s electricity. In the next fiscal year, the company aims to produce 780 million tonnes of coal and plans to increase production to 1 billion tonnes by March 2026. To achieve this target, Coal India will expand its existing mines and open new ones.
Eicher Motors, the parent company of Royal Enfield, recorded a 35% increase in monthly sales volume, causing its shares to rise by 3% in early trade on April 3. The company sold 11,263 vehicles in March 2023, up from 7,929 units sold the previous year. However, exports fell by 36.5% to 414 units. Royal Enfield sold 72,235 motorcycles, a 6% increase from the same period last year. The company’s domestic sales volumes increased by 53.6%, while its exports dropped by 41.5% to 4,933 units. For the financial year ending March 2023, Royal Enfield recorded its highest-ever overall sales, with 834,895 motorcycles sold, marking a 39% growth over the previous year.
In conclusion, it can be said that UltraTech Cement’s 12% increase in sales volume, Tata Motors’ 35% increase in domestic sales, Coal India Ltd’s achievement of producing over 700 million tonnes of coal, and Eicher Motors’ 35% increase in monthly sales volume all point to a positive trend of growth across multiple industries in India.
