Craftsman Automation IPO – Industry Overview.          

Between fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2020, domestic CV sales logged a 3.2% CAGR. In fact, over fiscals 2015-2019, the CAGR was 13% due to a sharp 16% CAGR in the medium and heavy commercial vehicles (M&HCV) segment and 14% in light commercial vehicle (LCV). Over the last five years, sales of buses, on the other hand, saw a tepid 3.1% CAGR.  Sales volume in the past has been volatile due to various factors such as government policies, lower industrial production, a fall in agricultural output, and a declining share of the road in goods transportation that increased transporters’ cost of operations and profitability.  

M&HCV volume declined during the economic slowdowns of fiscal 2009 and 2014, after which there was a gradual recovery, in line with economic growth.  In fiscal 2017, CV sales saw a 7% rise on year from April-October. However, after demonetization (November 2016), a cash crunch in the economy negatively impacted industrial output and slowed sales growth. However, in fiscal 2018, commercial vehicle sales witnessed a strong recovery and grew by a healthy 20%. The growth continued in fiscal 2019 supported by a sharp rise in LCV sales and continued growth in M&HCVs.  In fiscal 2020, the industry witnessed a sharp decline on a high base due to inventory adjustment on account of the BS-VI transition.
