Sector Update – FMCG

FMCG is the fourth largest sector in the Indian economy with household and personal care accounting for 50 per cent of FMCG sales in India. This sector has seen a slow growth since the past four quarters. This was noticed initially when rural demand, which usually has more growth rates than urban, saw a decline. Multiple factors including the liquidity crisis that started in Q2-FY20 impacted the FMCG due to its high cash dependency. Increase in food inflation, low government spending and raised telecom tariffs may affect this sector in coming days.

  • To face the ongoing slowdown in the growth, companies have tried pushing products through promotions, offers and low unit price packs in various categories.
  • Besides liquidity crisis, consumer sentiments too were weak because of no job addition, and salary hike was silenced in 2019.
  • Distribution is still one of the biggest challenges for some players in rural areas due to insufficient infrastructure.
  • HUL’s home care business was the top performer during the quarter, registering about 10% growth.
  • Colgate’s PAT has been affected due to its aggression in ad-spends and product pipeline.
  • ITC’s Net profit growth is largely due to corporate tax cut. Also, EBITDA growth is due to a favorable base in FMCG and hotel segments.
  • Britannia’s short-term PAT has affected due to inflation in input commodities such as wheat, milk and palm oil.
  • Some of the actions that helped Crompton Greaves- special incentives for channel partners, selective extension of credit to dealers, focused pricing action, and new product launches.
  • Emami’s short term performance was affected majorly due to market slowdown and delayed winter as they have a significant winter portfolio.
  • Jubilant Foodworks performance was majorly driven by strong growth in online sales.
  • Nestle India’s YoY growth in Revenue as well as Net Profits was mainly driven by broad-based volume growth and superior product mix, associated with improvement in operating profit margins YoY (from 19% to 22%).
