TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Interactions with leading channel partners indicate sharp decline in month-on-month retails led by regional lockdowns, supply challenges for few OEMs and lower footfalls (down 45-50 percent) in key festive/ marriage season. Unlike last year, this time rural sales are also impacted as retails and urban are expected to decline 40- 42 percent and 60-62 percent MoM respectively. Consequently, we expect wholesale for the month of April’21 to decline 15-20 percent MoM across segments,” said Prabhudas Lilladher.
