India’s largest car company Maruti Suzuki has seen a slight dip in its numbers last month. What is the reason? What is the future plan of the company? What is the outlook of the sector? Swati Khandelwal spoke with Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Director of Maruti Suzuki in a popular TV show ‘Corporate Radar‘ where he said the company aims to achieve a 50% market share in the SUV segment.
Sale units of Maruti Suzuki
The company’s total sales in May grew 7% to 1,61,000 units, while domestic sales grew 1.5% to 1,42,000 units. Total exports grew by 49% to 27,200 units. But if you look at the month-on-month numbers, there is a slight dip.
Talking about the demand pattern, the Executive Director of Maruti Suzuki Shashank Srivastava said that the demand pattern for the last 4-5 months is quite stable according to the company’s data history. The trend of inquiries and bookings is quite positive, he added.
But supply constrain still remain, he further said, and that is why the April-May numbers are limited. “Demand continues to be good, supply constraints still exist,” said Srivastava.
He informed Maruti Suzuki has 2,95,000 bookings pending right now. And it is estimated that there is 5.25 lakh pending bookings in the industry.
The senior ED said that pending booking and limited supply of semiconductors are the reasons for flat domestic sales on a month-on-month basis. But it is expected that the production will increase and these units will be increased rapidly in the domestic sector, he added.
