While commenting on the results, Amit Syngle, managing director and chief executive officer at Asian Paints said,

  • The domestic decorative business more than doubled its volume and delivered stellar revenues over the lower base of last year, which had suffered from the first nationwide lockdown.

    The business registered strong compounded average growths in value and volume in comparison to June 2020 quarter which is indicative of a strong consistent trajectory.

    We registered strong growths in April 2021 and a robust resounding rebound in June 2021, post May 2021 which was impacted in a big way.

Highlighting the ongoing troubles caused by surging commodity prices, the company said its gross margins in the reporting quarter suffered on account of higher input costs as the global crude oil price continued its upward march.

Highlights from earnings call

Up until April 2021, the company did well. Post this period, demand took a hit amid state lockdowns. The month of May was muted but June was strong.

The company witnessed very steep inflation to the extent of 13-15% for the quarter under review. Owing to this, it hiked prices by 3%. The company said it will further increase prices in July.

During the quarter, the Southern market remained impacted strongly due to increased cases. Meanwhile, Eastern markets remained impacted due to Kolkata elections and Northeast was subdued.

The exterior market saw robust growth with both government and institutions angling for infrastructure push. Waterproofing did well due to better demand from both retail and institutional customers.

The company has filed 20 new patents in fiscal 2021. To date, it has filed a total of 76 patents.

Asian Paints' international portfolio posted over 50% revenue growth over the last year led by Asia & Middle East while Africa remained impacted by local challenges as well as steep inflation.
