“All end-use segments like pipe & tube, hollowware, white goods along with railways & wagons, and metro rail grew during the quarter. Sales in the auto segment were weak as the semiconductor shortage led to a decline in the production of passenger vehicles,” it said.

Exports accounted for 14% of the total sales volume in the second quarter, as against 7% in the corresponding period last fiscal.
