Tractors and passenger vehicles are the only two categories to see growth in March 2021

Commenting on the performance of the industry in March 2021, Vinkesh Gulati, President of FADA India, said: “Auto registrations for the month of March saw a double-digit drop of -28.64% year-on-year, despite 7 day lockdown last year. Tractors and passenger vehicles were the only two categories that saw healthy double-digit growth. This growth may be associated with multiple factors such as last year’s weak base, the shift from BS-4 to BS-6 and India on the road to full lockdown. The global shortage of wafers, which is an input for semiconductors, continued to persist and kept the PV waiting period up to 7 months. According to the FADA survey, 47% of PV dealers reported losing more than 20% of their sales due to supply side constraints. . “
