Apart from that, analysts caution that given the steep rise in costs of key inputs such as natural rubber and carbon black, margins are likely to remain under pressure.

It should be noted that larger peers MRF and Apollo Tyres have taken prices hike of around 4.5% in recent months. These companies have guided for a further increase in prices in the coming months.

Meanwhile, the demand outlook for the entire sector remains uncertain due to covid restrictions in various states.

Disruptions Led by Pandemic on Company's Business

The business in the March quarter of last year was impacted adversely due to the strict lockdown imposed by the government to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The pandemic has caused serious disruptions on the global economic and business environment.

Consequent to this, upon restrictions being eased, the production of the company resumed at all plants in stages considering necessary statutory approvals and precautions.

Resumption of operations and improved business environment from second quarter onwards resulted in company attaining healthy sales and profitability.

An Overview on India's Tyre Industry

The Indian tyre industry is an integral part of the auto sector - It contributes to 3% of the manufacturing gross domestic product (GDP) of India and 0.5% of the total GDP directly.

The top four companies - MRF, Apollo Tyres, CEAT, and JK Tyres - have 67% of the market share in terms of revenue.

According to a leading financial daily, over the last 4 years, tyre companies have made huge capital expenditures (capex) in expectation of growth, but due to a decline in original equipment manufacturer (OEM) volumes as well as lower GDP growth, industry volume growth was tepid over the last few years.

Further, due to the Covid-19 impact this year, Q1FY22 sales are likely to be lower and hence no further capex may be coming at the current rate of sales growth till FY24 or FY25.
