FMCG / FMCD / Logistics
We have a good experience in this industry
FMCG sector will continue to see growth as it depends on an ever-increasing internal market for consumption, and demand for these goods remains more or less constant, irrespective of recession or inflation. Hence this sector will grow, though it may not be a smooth growth path, due to the present world-wide economic slowdown, rising inflation and fall of the rupee. This sector will see good growth in the long run and hiring will continue to remain robust.
The consumer durables market is divided into two segments – consumer electronics, also known as the brown goods (television, digital camera, audio-video systems, computers, electronic accessories, etc) and consumer appliances or the white goods (air conditioners, refrigerators, microwave ovens, other household appliances, etc.).
In its initial years, the sector relied on media and advertising for consumer penetration. Liberalization of markets in late 1990s saw the entry of global players like Samsung and LG and a shift in focus towards product innovation. Accessibility to high-end products was, however, low till mid 2000s. Last few years has seen high end and aspirational products like air conditioners and High Definition TVs gain stronghold in the market.
The industry size for consumer durables stands at Rs 350 billion (as on March 2012). The sector rides and relies on the state of the country’s economy. With household incomes in top 20 cities across India expected to grow at 10 percent annually over the next eight years, and concepts of easy loans, equated monthly installment (EMI) charges, availability of credit, etc., become commonplace, the Indian consumer is likely to spend more on both utility and luxury consumer goods.
