These alliances have placed the company at the forefront of automotive industry advancements, enabling delivery of cutting-edge solutions. With a continued focus on technology during the last quarter, the company filed 20 patents, taking the total count of patents to more than 250.
The automotive industry exhibited satisfactory performance across various segments. The domestic auto market delivered positive growth, primarily driven by robust urban sales. However, exports continued to face challenges due to global geopolitical factors. Two-wheeler demand remained sluggish due to concerns about affordability and increasing fuel costs.
The demand for passenger vehicles remained robust, thanks to a strong order book with OEMs and the introduction of new products. Additionally, government’s accelerated infrastructure spending contributed to an upswing in commercial vehicle demand. The tractor segment experienced a remarkable surge in growth, surpassing expectations with a strong double-digit increase.
As FY23 drew to a close, semiconductor supply constraints have eased, and commodity prices have resumed an upward trend after a temporary decline in Q2FY23. However, it is important to acknowledge that a substantial portion of our raw materials are tied to customer indices. As part of its way forward strategy, Minda Corporation is
poised to endure growth, owing to its robust fundamentals, commitment to quality, customer-centric approach, and relentless focus on innovation and research and development.
The coming FY will witness the company pursuing excellence and surpassing expectations to ensure the delivery of exceptional value to our stakeholders.
