Ashwath Ram, Managing Director, Cummins India Limited, said: The world's major economies are dealing effectively to cool down inflationary trends and maintain growth rates. The continued geopolitical risks and resolution of conflicts will likely take longer, posing continued uncertainty about global trade. Recent conflicts impacting trade routes have caused increased freight costs and lead time for supplies. Amidst these uncertainties, the Indian economy is holding up well on the back of strong domestic demand and continued government spending, notably on infrastructure. The recent Interim budget proposing higher allocation for capital expenditure augurs well for the Indian economy.
The company recorded the highest quarterly revenue and profits based on robust domestic demand and is well-positioned to support domestic and export demand. The company has a strong liquidity and financial position to support its operations and growth plans.
The investment by India in infrastructure continues to bode well for the Company. The powergen market will see a demand shift with an increasing focus on CPCB IV+ compliant products. However, upcoming quarters are likely to see mixed demand for CPCB II and CPCB IV+ products, as CPCB II products are allowed to be sold till June 30, 2024. Global economic conditions remain uncertain as the world is witnessing geo-political tensions, inflationary trends etc. Optimistic domestic demand outlook is expected to contribute to sales and profitable growth for the Company, though exports in near term may be impacted due to the global economic uncertainties in the short/medium term. However, the Company, has a good portfolio of products and is striving for recovery in exports. Overall, the company continues to be well positioned with a strong brand, world class manufacturing infrastructure on ground and a best-in-class service organization with unparalleled reach throughout the country and neighboring regions.
