Never Ending Woes For The Automobile Sector

Never Ending Woes For The Automobile Sector

Here's what Tanushree Banerjee wrote about it in one of the recent edition of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • Multiple factors have affected the auto sector of late.

    The liquidity crisis faced by NBFCs, regulatory changes leading to increased costs, new emission norms... they have all taken their toll.

    Also, this sector is ripe for disruption with electric vehicles and ride sharing applications.

    Maruti, India's largest car maker announced it would stop making diesel cars from April next year.

    The coming one year will be a real test for India's auto companies.

    It will also tell us if this slowdown is temporary or if there has been a structural change in the sector.

    There is one thing I know for sure, dear reader. Only the ones adapting their business models to the rapidly changing environment will survive and thrive.
