We currently don’t cater to the entire market with our products, although the segments we represent have shown de-growth of around 22 per cent, yet our de-growth as compared to the segment has been much lesser.”
Commenting on 2020 outlook, he said “In the coming year, we would continue to sustain our volumes as 2019. Since we have leadership in the segments we operate in, we would grow at the same pace as the market growth.” He also said the company will keep working towards introducing innovations and newer technologies in its models keeping in mind the changing needs of Indian customers.
