FMCG companies move fast on volume growth while rural beats urban
Volume growth seems to be the latest mantra in the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector. This coincides with rural outpacing urban consumption in volume terms for the first time in five quarters, according to the NielsenIQ January-March data. While focussed on volume, FMCG companies are also looking at increasing advertising spends in order to grow their brands. Consumer goods major Hindustan Unilever (HUL) told its investors post its earnings call recently that its focus remains on driving competitive volume-led growth across its businesses. “We want to continue driving gross margin improvement. Even in this quarter, when we delivered a 23.4 per cent EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amor­tisation), you saw a very strong 350 bps gross margin improvement. A large part of that got invested into advertising & promotion spends (A&P),” Ritesh Tiwari, chief financial officer at HUL, said.

In FY23, investments in mining, construction and manufacturing fell
Gross capital formation (GCF) — or investment — in manufacturing, construction, and mining sectors contracted in FY23 primarily due to a fall in export demand and low private consumption during the year, an industrywise analysis of the National Accounts Statistics 2024 data showed. The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) had released the data on Monday. The fall in GCF in the three sectors comes at a time when overall GCF in the economy grew by 6.9 per cent to Rs 55.3 trillion at constant prices in the financial year ended March 31, 2023 (FY23). GCF is a broad measure of investment in an economy and represents total value of physical assets including fixed assets, inventories and valuables. On the other hand, gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) is a narrow measure of investment in the economy and excludes inventories, or acquisitions of valuables. Real manufacturing GFC that contracted 5.4 per cent to Rs 9.4 trillion could be attributed to “subdued manufacturing growth” during the year as capacity utilisation was low and firms had less incentive to invest, said economists.
