Fiat Arm Brings AMT To India Nabeel A. Khan & Jagdev Kalsi New Delhi

M

agneti Marelli, a 100 percent owned subsidiary of Fiat S.p.A, is bringing in Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) to India. AMT is low-cost and a more fuel efficient substitute for Automated Transmission (AT). Since AMT is 20 percent cheaper than AT, it could likely accelerate adoptability going by the cost sensitive nature of the market. Moreover, the increas-

ing number of traffic and poor driving conditions will inadvertently result in higher demand for such products. Although, lately, carmakers have begun offering AT across all segments of vehicles (including with high volume cars like hatchbacks), the steeper price factor of AT has been impacting sales. The volume segment cars that are highly cost sensitive will have high acceptability of AMT in India. The components manufacturing arm of the Italian automobile major is sure of seeing tremendous potential in India.

Will AMT find takers in India? The manufacturers are optimistic.

An AMT is composed of a dry clutch, a gearbox, and an embedded dedicated control system that uses electronic sensors, processors, and actuators to actuate gear shifts on the driver’s command. This removes the need for a clutch pedal while the driver is still able to decide when to change the gear. The clutch itself is actuated by electronic equipment that can synchronize the timing and the torque required to make gear shifts quick and smooth. The system is designed to provide a better driving experience, especially in cities where congestion frequently causes stop-and-go traffic patterns.

One ECU, More Fuels Magneti Marelli is also looking at bringing solutions for flexi-fuelswhich mean one ECU can manage more than two fuel options in an engine. It is a major player in Brazil which is a strong market for ethanol-based fuel. The system is called tetra fuel, which can manage with a single ECU four fuels in a car. In Brazil available fuel options are gasoline, ethanol, CNG and could be a combination of gasolineethanol. This ECU is single. Currently, in India we have dual ECUs managing two fuels in a car.ties where congestion frequently causes stop-and-go traffic patterns. “As an area of expansion we are looking at AMT. Today the demand for AT in India is probably one percent. Although this number is slowly increasing since last year, this is mainly for two reasons. One is the increase in the number of self driving population who consider comfort and convenience in bumper to bumper traffic, and secondly there is also an increase in the number of women drivers,” said Saju Mookken, Country Manager, Magneti Marelli India. “Automatic transmission has not been well accepted in India because it increases the overall price of the vehicle, and running costs. An AMT offers the efficiency of a manual transmission and the benefits of an automatic,” said I V Rao, COO (Engineering), of MSIL. “AMT will be a good solution for India. Indian driving often requires gear shifting so our decision will eventually benefit drivers.” AMT is an OE fitment which provides comfort as well as being fuel efficient. AMTs are successfully used in several countries

globally and in mainly mass segment vehicles. Magneti Marelli also has a JV in China exclusively for AMTs, and it also supplies to many carmakers in emerging markets such as Brazil. The components maker is pitching hard to spread the adoption of this technology to other OEMs in India. It believes that by the end of 2013, it will be common to see cars loaded with AMT running on Indian roads. “You should see the first vehicle on road by end 2013. It will be more on the A, B & C segment,” Mookken said. Elaborating on the cost benefit of the technology, Mookken said, “The incremental cost of fitting in ATs is about `50,000. This also means that the overall price of the car goes up by the same amount. My belief is that we should offer for 20-25 percent lesser than that difference though it depends on the pricing that OEs implement.” There are few carmakers that have full AT solutions. In AMT without changing the basic gearbox, the company will be able to mount an electro hydraulic kit.

Yamaha Adding Muscle To Ray Jagdev Kalsi New Delhi

I

ndia Yamaha Motor Pvt Ltd is introducing a maleoriented version of the Ray scooter in India by mid-2013. For the newer version of Ray, Yamaha plans to offer a beefed up exterior and colour options to distinguish it from the current scooter, which is women oriented. The new scooter is expected to be launched at a higher price than Yamaha Ray by a small mar-

gin of `2,000-5,000. “The male-oriented Ray will come with the same chassis and engine, that too in the same state of tune. Yamaha will mainly rework on the exteriors,” said a source seeking to remain anonymous. The company is gung-ho about the brand considering the response it has received from the market. In November alone, Yamaha sold 10,348 units of Ray, and has touched an overall figure of 26,214 units till date. The new scooter will likely be manufac-

tured at the company’s Surajpur plant in Greater Noida alongside the existing Yamaha Ray. While Yamaha had marketed the Ray as a women’s scooter exclusively, it was the scooter’s paint colours that were predominantly feminine. In future, it will offer a range of colours and nipn-tucked in exteriors, Yamaha has plans to tap the larger (in numbers) male audiences for a firmer footing in the scooter market. Yamaha had also projected its focus to grab a 20 percent share of

the scooter market by 2016 at the Ray’s launch. The male-oriented Ray scooter will be Yamaha’s second step in the automatic scooter market. While Yamaha has managed to grab 4.6 percent share of the market (for November 2012) with the Ray, having three scooters in its portfolio, the segment is currently led by Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India that enjoyed a close to 50 percent market share for the same month as per SIAM data.


EDITORIAL In Need Of Better Deals

T

A few years ago, OEMs would sign up exclusive agreements with components companies based abroad. While this worked well earlier, some of the global disasters like those in Japan brought an end to such deals. No one could afford to take such risks.

But there’s an interesting phenomenon happening on the side. From what we gathered, the OEMs have realised that more Indian consumers are seeking better cars and newer technologies to match up to global standards. Going by what we hear, more OEMs are tying up with components manufacturers across Europe (mainly there) and seeking out new technologies to be fitted into cars.

That again begs the question: What are the Indian OEMs to do? They need to push sales and also offer the best-inclass. An idea that came across from those in the know is that every manufacturer start offering finance options at lower rates than banks. Mahindra and Audi are in the forefront of this. Of course, there are others too. But this is one way that will push buyers to consider better cars and also ensure that the next car they buy could be from the same company, if the camaraderie has set in well.

he fag end of the year has not treated car manufacturers well. Most of them are quite saddened at the poor sales show and a market that shows no signs of glowing. The reasons could be many, and others could also be suffering the same fate. But that still does not lift up the spirits.

While on the one hand, they will be capable of offering better cars to consumers, on the other hand it implies an overall increase in the price of cars. So how will they solve this conundrum? There’s another point. Most component makers who supply to the OEMs are not confining themselves to only one or two. That would indeed be a big risk to take. Then what is the USP of any car?

MMI Wants Larger Indian Arena Nabeel A Khan & Jagdev Kalsi New Delhi

M

agneti Marelli India (MMI) is increasing its market size in India. In its presence in the country thus far, the components maker has taken both JV and independent route. In four years time, it has seven JVs and eight plants in the country. With a workforce of around 1,500 people and last fiscal revenue at Rs 800 crore, Magneti hopes to cross Rs 1,100 crore this fiscal, signifying a growth of 40 percent in top line. So bullish is the company about India that it hopes to triple this figure in three years’ time.

To bring this on, it is increasing the products line in OE segment and also conducting a feasibility study for bringing in its aftermarket module, Checkstar, a kind of franchise garages it runs mainly in Europe. In after-sales and service, Magneti is planning an aggressive distribution of an array of products –produced within the company or by its partners. “There is a strong opportunity. But we are unsure when we will go full-fledged. We will start with a few products and gradually expand,” said Saju Mookken, Country Manager of the company. In Suspension and Shock observers, Magneti Marelli owns Cofab, an aftermarket brand for

shock absorbers. It also doubles up as an OE brand. Cofab products are produced in Pune and one of the few products to be available in the aftermarket. The company will start distribution and building of a network for aftermarket in India in early 2013. Magneti Marelli distributes parts for the aftermarket globally but has a major presence in Europe and Latin American. It has over 5,000 Checkstar garages in Europe, where, according to Mookken, it provides a holistic technology required to run garages. Technological knowhow is a major concern for car owners when it comes to local and neighborhood garages. As vehi-

cles become technologically advanced, there is a need for services that most garages are incapable of. The company is planning to add OE products in the suspension and shock observer range. In April it started production of suspensions with Talbros in Faridabad. The new products are manufactured under its JV, Magneti Marelli Talbros Automotive Components. “We will now move to products like knuckles and then eventually move into front and rear,” said Mookken. It also plans to add active shock absorbers with electronic control. Globally, Magneti Marelli has over 12 R&D centres recognized for its design capability.

The component maker’s majority business comes from lighting followed by power train. The company is also looking at building design capability in India and reducing R&D support from outside. “I think historically India has not been strong in automobile design but off late has been improving in small cars. We are already the second largest production hub for small cars. We have frugal engineering, and most global OEMs are taking advantage of that,” he added. Mookken vouches for the increasing design and engineering capability of India. Chrysler has a large engineering base out of Chennai, while GM has a engineering phase in Bengaluru.

Tata Motors Struggles With Passenger Car Biz Our Bureau Mumbai

T

he last few months have been tough for Tata Motors’ passenger cars business. The erosion of market share and an ageing product portfolio has repeatedly fallen short of customers’ expectations. The blow comes at a time when the company’s commercial vehicles business is also seeing a cyclical downturn. Analysts are of the opinion that the company performance may further go down in the domestic market in the coming quarters if the company does not take drastic steps.

Domestic sales of passenger vehicles (including JLR and Fiat) by the company in H1 2012-13 stood at 135,222 units as compared to 134,811 units in the corresponding period last fiscal, according to company results. “Competitive intensity poses challenges to the passenger vehicle industry, with higher inflation, interest costs, and fuel price dampening demand. Customers’ preference is more allied to diesel vehicles,” pointed out company officials in a presentation to analysts. It has begun resolving issues by embarking on some initiatives. Beginning with product refreshment plans, it will move

on to enhancing customer experience and engagement, better manage distribution expansion and effectiveness, not to forget cost effectiveness and quality enhancement initiatives. It is also looking to introduce variants and models in the Prima range, Ultra range of LCV, ACE, Nano CNG among others. “The domestic passenger industry grew three percent in Q2 FY13. While the overall growth was subdued, industry segments like UVs showed robust growth,’ said the spokesperson. The company passenger car exports declined by 9.2 percent in Q2 2012-13 to 14,709 units as compared to 16,192 units in the

corresponding quarter last fiscal. Tata Motors lost ground in markets like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and registered flat to subdued growth in Nepal, Afghanistan, Thailand, and

South Africa. Sales of Jaguar Land Rover grew by 14 percent to touch 77,442 units in Q2 2012-13 as compared to 68,000 units in the corresponding quarter last fiscal.

Fuel Efficient Trucks From Ashok Leyland

A

shok Leyland, the Hinduja Group f lagship, has introduced a range of haulage trucks fitted with Twin Speed Rear Axles and many other modifications that promises enhanced fuel efficiency of up to 10 percent. Deployed on 25 and 31 Tonne trucks in both 6x2 and 8x2 configurations, the new set of technologies are custom designed for the Ashok Leyland driveline, with the Twin Speed Axle being the primary change. Ideal for an open highway condition, the technology allows the driver to shift to fuel-economy mode, while cruising, just by pressing the ‘Twin-Speed’ button. The ‘Twin-Speed’ technology also offers benefits of faster turnaround, improved driveability and reduced noise levels.

On the introduction of this new technolog y, Vinod K. Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland said, “It is our constant endeavor to seek ways to improve our customers’ profitability and what better way than to reduce their burden on fuel cost. We are confident that our customers will find in this new technology an excellent value proposition.” The Twin-Speed technology will be on offer on some of the company’s flagship models, in the multi-axle range, like the 2516IL, 2516XL, 3116IL and 3118IL, which are best suited for applications like market load, cement, tankers and general cargo and are already top performers in their class. These vehicles equipped with twinspeed axles will be launched across the country in a phased

manner. The package of such technology improvements will be extended to 4x2 haulage and buses as well. Customer care will be on offer through Ashok Leyland’s robust network of 430 full service outlets that are positioned at every 75 kms on all major highways across the country.

TKM Reworks Org Structure

I

n a bid to strengthen the orga n i zat ion towa rds achieving its vision and also enhance speed of decision making, Toyota Kirloskar Motor Limited (TKM) has announced a new organisational structure. The proposed changes will come to effect from Jan 1, 2013. Beginning with the top honchos, Shekar Viswanathan, Deputy Managing Director, Commercial, has been promoted to the post of Vice Chairman, External Affairs. Sandeep Singh, Deputy Managing Director, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, has been promoted to Deputy Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer. In his new role, he will head Sales,

Marketing, Customer Service and Commercial Divisions. Masanori Takahashi, Deputy Managing Director, Technical and Purchase, has been promoted to Deputy Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer. In his new role he will head Manufacturing, Technical, Purchase and Vendor Development including supplier support. All the above mentioned executives will continue to hold positions in the company’s Board of Directors. Mr. Shigeru Tomonaga, currently holding the post of Deputy Managing Director, Manufacturing will be an Executive Advisor to the TKM Board of Directors and Chief of Supplier Support Center.

in the second half of 2013, with the first cars arriving in Europe later in the year. The GQ3’s styling introduces a brand identity that will make every future model instantly recognisable as a Qoros. Under the leadership of Executive Director of Design, Gert Volker Hildebrand, a team of designers have created distinct and precise styling based on modern European design tastes. The GQ3 has a sporty, elegant profile with a long wheelbase, short overhangs, a coupé-like silhouette and a roof that flows smoothly into the strong rear quarters. The face of the GQ3 sets the template for the Qoros model family, with wide headlamp units extending into the flanks

of the car, framing the central upper grille at the same height. Horizontal LED bars feature at the upper edge of the headlights and in the distinctive rear light clusters. The standard alloy wheels feature a triple-split eight-spoke design, which will become another signature design element for the Qoros brand. The GQ3 will offer generous interior space, and the horizontally arranged ‘floating’ dashboard will further enhance the impression of space in the cabin. In its ergonomics and quality, the Qoros GQ3 sets new standards for cars produced in China and will be comparable with the best-selling cars in Europe. Prominently occupying the GQ3’s central console is the innovative eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that represents an automotive industry first. The advanced software, technology and graphics were designed and developed in-house to safely manage information displays for minimal driver distraction and to optimise easeof-use while on the move. The intelligent and powerful package was created specifically with the young, aspirational, alwaysconnected target Qoros customer firmly in mind. Replacing the array of switches and buttons that blights many modern car interiors, the capacitive touchscreen enables users to manage entertainment, navigation, ‘Cloud’ connectivity and in-car networking functions with intuitive finger ‘swipe’ movements that will be familiar to smartphone users. The system allows drivers

to book dealer service appointments, features an automatic emergency services alert in the event of an accident, and supports usage-based car insurance services. The state-of-the-art navigation system includes bestin-class traffic information and an advanced points-of-interest search. Integrated social networking connectivity enables drivers to share their driving experiences, points-of-interest, favourite trips and photos via social media through the intuitive interface. The Qoros GQ3 is engineered to achieve maximum European and Chinese crash test ratings thanks to advanced safety technology. The car’s structural architecture incorporates the latest developments in the field of crash safety. The precise arrangement of supporting structures, as well as large-scale deformation zones, prevent intrusions into the passenger cell during collisions. In addition, occupants are protected by a comprehensive package of state-of-the-art safety measures, including front, side and curtain airbags, as well as highly-effective seatbelt restraint systems. All Qoros models will follow a three digit model naming structure. The first letter designates the body style: all sedans will carry the first letter ‘G‘. All Qoros models will feature the second letter ‘Q‘ – an unmistakable reference to the ‘master‘ brand. The third digit will always be a number and indicates the segment in which the model range sits. The number ‘3’ denotes that the model is in the compact/C-segment.

Queuing To The Ports

T

oyota’s plans to export vehicles from India triggered a domino effect among Indian manufacturers to look at exports to add an extra arm to increase production in the country. Reports in the media also reveal that there has been a focus by Honda and Toyota to export components to Asian and South American nations. Honda has been exporting engine and body components of the Brio to Thailand and also some components for the Jazz and City. Toyota is gearing up to export transmissions of the Etios and Liva to Brazil in the coming year. Just a year ago, a handful of manufacturers focused on exports, namely Hyundai, Maruti, Nissan and Ford. They

were the only car makers to realize the potential of using India as an export hub and were also benefited by the fact that they had the right product in their line-up for export. Mahindra and Tata have also been exporting their products around the world but the numbers are too small to have any impact. In April when Toyota began exporting the Liva and Etios sedan to South Africa, it marked the beginning of other manufacturers following in their

footsteps. In the period of AprilNovember 2012, Toyota has exported 16,430 units - a third of the passenger cars it has sold in India in the same period. Volkswagen too began exporting LHD Ventos to South Africa. Recently, Renault began exports of the Duster too. Although the focus has been on exporting CBUs to other markets, the possibility of a larger market waiting to be explored in the components space is now being taken into consideration.

Paints That Break Oxides Fraunhofer Institute is testing at the Trade Fair BAU. It is going to demonstrate how paints can help with clean air.

F

raunhofer researchers are looking at introducing a test at the booth of the Fraunhofer Building Innovation Alliance in Booth 131/135 in Hall C2 at the Trade Fair BAU that will take place from January 14-19, 2013, in Munich. The test is to find out how coatings behave during a long-term test. This is based on the knowledge that surfaces with photo-catalytic characteristics clean the air off nitrogen oxides and other healthendangering substances. To give a background, in the Seventies, a common occurrence was smog alert in the Ruhr area, acid rain, and dying spruce trees in the Bavarian Forest. In those days, the solution was filter systems for the smokestacks in the Ruhr area. Today, people in the urban areas are suffering from high levels of pollution that is being caused by, among other things, automotive traffic. In particularly the most undesired is nitrogen oxide (NOx).

Meanwhile, the European Union tightened the limit values even further; in many communities they are being exceeded. Michael Hüben of the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME in Schmallenberg, Germany, knows that “on stretches with heavy traffic there is a particular need for action.” It is for this reason that during the next two years, the Fraunhofer researchers are keen to examine in the project, “Effectiveness of photo-catalytic removal of nitrogen oxide on coated building test panels” how photo-catalytic surfaces contribute to the removal of NOx and how the coatings prove themselves during long-term operation. On behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Transport, the German Federal Highway Research Institute is sponsoring and supporting the project. “Coatings that are photocatalytically active can help to reduce nitrogen oxides,” explains

Dr. Michael Hüben, “There are already a number of products available for the photo-catalytic coating of surfaces, but the measurement method standardized according to ISO 22197-1 cannot be applied to all problems. At the IME, we have now developed a special measurement cell which we are using in our project.” At the A4 interstate at Bergisch Gladbach, we will shortly be setting out weathering noise barrier samples that were coated with reactive material. Prepared test samples will be measured at predetermined intervals in the measuring cell. Hüben explains the set up of the test: “The surface of the test sample must be photo-catalytically active, meaning it removes NOx when exposed to light.” The surfaces contain titanium dioxide catalysts, a material that is affordable and available in large quantities. Then, exposed to daylight, titanium dioxide catalyzes the nitrogen oxide into nitrate. The photo-catalytic activities of

the samples are determined using a flow-through process,” says the scientist. During the next two years, the experts will determine regularly how much nitrous oxide is being removed. In this manner, they will obtain a solid basis for the long term effects of the coatings. Only then will we be sure that the coatings really do help and that larger surfaces, such as entire housing tracts, can be economically furnished with coats that are photo-catalytically effective. This would make it possible to reduce the particle pollution in urban areas. “Another area of application for the measurement process is in interior rooms. Here, too, there are products commercially avail-

able that promise to improve air quality in interior rooms,” explains Hüben’s colleague, Frank Neumann from the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST. ”Here, too, experimental measurements help us to work up standards and certifications and standardize existing test processes.” At the Trade Fair BAU 2013, the researchers will present these and more photo-catalytic applications for the interior and exterior, using a stylized house in the booth of the Fraunhofer Building Innovation Alliance. The motto is: City of Tomorrow - Intelligent Building for the City of the Future. (Courtesy: Fraunhofer Institute)

Audi Increases Prices In India Anand Mohan Mumbai

A

udi has increased prices on most of its models in India. The hikes, effective from 1st January, will go up a minimum of one percent on the Q7 3.0 TDI and a

maximum of five percent on the S4 3.0 TFSI (see table below). This amounts to an increase in range from `59,000 to `3.69 lakh (all prices ex-showroom Delhi) across the Audi India range. The A4, Q5, RS5 coupe and the TT are not part of the price hike. Commenting on the price

New-Gen i30 Shortlisted For Europe’s Premier Award

T

he New Generation i30 has made it to the shortlist for the Car of the Year 2013 award, becoming the first Hyundai model to make the final round of voting in Europe’s premier award for new cars. The 58 Car of the Year jury members, representing 22 European countries, allocated points to their preferred models during the first round of voting, and the i30 was among the highestscoring cars. Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented, “The New Generation i30 was designed, developed and is made in Europe, for Europeans, so it’s a great honour for such a respected group of experts to recognise its relevance to Europe by shortlisting it for Car of the Year 2013. “Its dynamic design and great value package are changing the way European consumers think about Hyundai, being drawn to i30 on an emotional level. This is borne out not only by independent research but also by sustained sales success in the highly-competitive C-segment.” This latest achievement for Hyundai’s bestselling model in Europe crowns a year of major milestones for i30 in the region and around the world. Earlier this month, Hyundai announced that more than 500.000 units of i30 had been sold in Europe since the first-generation model went on sale in 2007, and globally i30 has now surpassed 1 million sales. At Hyundai’s award-winning European manufacturing facility in Nošovice, Czech Republic, more than half a million units of i30 have been produced. The New Generation i30 family was recently expanded, with the unveiling of a new threedoor version adding further sporting flair to the compelling characteristics of the five-door and Tourer models. The other shortlisted candidates for Car of the Year 2013 are (in alphabetical order) the Ford B-Max, Mercedes A-class, Peugeot 208, Renault Clio, Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT-86 (as one candidate), Volkswagen Golf and Volvo V40. The winner of the 50th edition of Car of the Year will be announced on March 4th 2013 in Geneva, ahead of the opening of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. Like all Hyundai’s newly-launched models in Europe, New Generation i30 comes with the reassurance of the industry-leading Five Year Triple Care package, which gives customers a five-year warranty with no mileage limit, five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks.

hike, Michael Perschke, Head, Audi India, said, “The overall market scenario is challenging. The rise in input cost, depreciating rupee as well as continuous increase in fuel prices have made us re-evaluate our pricing strategy in India and increase the prices of our range. However, we

are offering our customers customized and innovative finance options from Audi Finance which will make their purchase attractive.” Audi India has shown strong progress in the luxury car segment selling 8,072 units between Januar y-November 2012, a growth rate of 58 percent over the same period last year. Rival brand Mercedes Benz too announced a price hike a couple of weeks ago citing rise in input cost, fluctuating rupee and inflation as reasons for the increase. The hike will be to the tune of 1-3 percent across the range. Renault has announced a price rise of 1.5 percent across its range, Maruti car prices

will increase up to `20,000 and Chevrolet too has announced a 1.3 percent increase for its models beginning 2013. There are similar planned increases from Mahindra and Toyota and other manufacturers are expected to follow suit in the coming weeks. With inflation and prices of cars going up, it looks increasingly harder to purchase a car in the coming year. If the value of the Rupee increases, it will give a much needed respite for international manufacturers selling their products in India but for Indian manufacturers with high levels of local content, it get more and more important to focus on value for money offerings over premium products.

ICRA Outlook on the Indian Tyre Industry Pavethra Ponniah K Srikumar Subrat Dwibedi Subrata Ray Revenue Growth Trends : Continuing from a subdued year in 2011-12 (volume growth for the tyre industry stood at 5.3%), volume growth for tyre sales has remained weak during the current fiscal with subdued OEM demand, particularly in the higher tonnage Medium and Heavy Commercial Vehicles (M&HCV) segment where volumes contracted significantly, modest replacement demand and relatively muted exports, particularly to the European Union. Unlike the last fiscal when industry revenues grew on realisation hikes of over 20% (to pass on cost increases), realisations have grown by only ~1.5-2.5% during the current fiscal (with a benign raw material scenario). However, the sharp depreciation in the INR (vs. the USD) continues to drive export revenue growth by over 25% (y-o-y) during the current fiscal despite the relatively muted export volumes. Global tyre industry has also witnessed a significant contraction during the first nine months of CY 2012, led by falling replacement demand in almost all large geographies barring the Middle East and Africa. North American OEM volumes however continue to be robust both in the M&HCV and light vehicle segments. Rubber prices plunge on weak demand: During the last three years, tyre manufacturers faced severe challenges on managing input costs-with the industry witnessing significant volatility in NR prices. NR prices, which peaked at a high of `240 per kg in April 2011, has trended downwards during the last year and half-more so during the current fiscal; NR prices have dropped from `197 per kg in April 2012 to `172 per kg in November 2012. Global rubber prices exhibited a largely similar trend, although there were periods of disparity

caused by the lead time to import and quality concerns on domestic rubber. However, with imports meeting significant proportion of NR requirements in the domestic markets, the depreciating INR continues to moderate the actual fall in landed cost of raw material for tyre manufacturers. Although uncertainty prevails on commodity prices and forex volatility, it is observed that the tyre manufacturers have started covering inventory at prevailing low prices despite the demand outlook for the end industry continuing to remain subdued. With muted global demand, ICRA expects NR prices to stay range bound at Rs. 175-185 per kg over the next two quarters. Synthetic rubber prices decline with drop in crude oil prices: Accounting for ~15% of the raw material cost of tyres, prices of Synthetic Rubber (SR) has a strong correlation with tyre prices and industry margins. Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) and Poly Butadiene Rubber (PBR) are the key SR elastomers used in tyres. During the past fiscal 201112, SBR and PBR prices increased by 45% and 31% (in INR) respectively. This was due to the rise in butadiene prices and sharp depreciation of the INR against the USD. India has no domestic capacities for SBR while domestic capacities of PBR and other rubber chemicals are significantly short of demand, leading to heavy import dependence. Other key raw materials used in the tyre manufacturing process are primarily crude derivatives namely nylon tyre cord fabric (NTCF), carbon black and rubber chemicals. Prices of all these components are closely correlated to crude oil prices and currency movements. Prices of carbon black and NTCF have also increased by 24% and 16%, respectively during 201112. Carbon black, apart from drawing cues from automobile demand and crude oil prices also faces heavy dumping by China, thus affecting its prices. NTCF is

used as reinforcement material in cross ply tyres, and its prices move in tandem with the prices of Caprolactam (the main raw material for NTCF); Caprolactam prices are currently on a downtrend with lower demand and softening feedstock prices. In the last six months, synthetic rubber prices have moderated-largely in line with the drop in crude oil prices. Geopolitical uncertainties in the Middle East, ban on Iran’s oil imports by EU and US since July 2012 and ongoing tensions between Turkey and Syria apart from speculation is affecting oil production and crude prices. Margins continue to remain healthy despite moderation in demand: After witnessing one of the weakest margins in over ten quarters during Q1, 2011-12, there has been a gradual recovery in industry-wide operating margins since Q2, 2011-12 with operating margins reaching a high of 10.3% in Q1, 2012-13 supported by moderation in Natural rubber (NR) prices and impact of price hikes taken during late 2011-12. On a sequential basis, operating margins were largely stable at 10.3% during Q1, 2012-12. While most of the players posted a marginal improvement in margins aided by softer NR prices and improvement in product mix, there were declines in the operating margins of CEAT and TVS Srichakra on account of higher brand building expenses and higher overheads respectively. For TVS Srichakra, margin pressures was linked to sluggish volumes since a large portion (~58%) of its revenues are derived from the 2W-OEM segment which saw muted growth and hence pressure on realisations. Although NR prices have been moderating since April-12, the impact has been offset to an extent by the increase in prices of synthetic rubber (SR) and carbon black during Q1, 2012-13 on account of the high crude oil prices. Given the limited pricing flexibility of tyre manufacturers in the current weak demand scenario with mounting competitive pressures from new capacities being commissioned, any increase in raw material prices will have a direct impact on margins. With the industry in a capex mode, the higher interest and depreciation expenses and the foreign exchange losses on account of the weak rupee (loss of Rs. 432 million by JK tyres and Rs. 369 million by Falcon tyres) compressed net margins which declined to 3.4% in Q1, 2012-13 as compared to 3.8% in the previous quarter. Outlook: ICRA’s outlook for 2012-13 for the tyre industry stands at [1] Moderate revenue growth supported by export

revenues (depreciating INR impact) even as OEM demand contracts and modest replacement demand [2] Stable margins, despite the demand slowdown owing to moderating input costs [3] Margin support from better product mix-higher share of nontruck and replacement demand. A downside to margins is expected from the increasing share of OEM T&B radials which are currently underpriced in the market by tyre manufacturers as a penetrative strategy. ICRA expects the subdued conditions in the domestic automotive industry and the weak export outlook to the EU region to curb demand growth during the current fiscal; ICRA anticipates volume growth in the OEM segment to taper off to ~4.5-5.0% while the replacement demand grows by 5-7%. Industry wide revenues could however benefit from [A] the 1.5-2.5% hike in realisations and [B] the weaker INR boosting export revenues. ICRA expected the Indian tyre industry revenues to grow by ~13-14% during 2012-13. Over the medium term, in line with ICRA’s view for the automotive industry, we expect tyre demand to revive. Over the next three years, ICRA expects the expansion in industry margins to be driven by the following critical factors [A] Kick off of replacement demand for truck & bus radials (TBR); which could provide a significant upside to margins and industry wide boost to return indicators. [B] Replacement segment to kick start in a big way in the coming 2-3 years. This would provide a significant upside to margins and industry wide boost to return indicators. [2] The large TBR capacities coming online is expected to intensify competition and create a demand supply imbalance in the coming 2-3 years. As a penetrative pricing strategy, the industry is currently pricing TBRs at breakeven levels with margins in the TBR segment lower or at best at par with cross-ply tyre. ICRA expects these additional TBR capacities to be employed gainfully by 2015/16. As the demand-supply

skew inverts, tyre companies will experience a fillip to margins.

Fresh capacities largely towards radial tyres; additions sufficient to support demand for the next three-four years The domestic tyre industry is in the midst of a large capital expenditure phase. At a technological inflexion point with cross ply tyres giving way to more advanced radial tyres in the M&HCV industry, the new capacities coming up are also largely for radial tyres. Tyre capacities in the country grew by over 16% on a compounded basis during the last three years, up from 105.4 million tyres in March 2009 to an estimated 166.1 million tyres as of March 2012. During the last fiscal 2011-12 alone, the industry witnessed commissioning of capacities worth `35.9 billion and stands poised for an incremental investment of `54.2 billion during 2012-13; ICRA foresees some spillage of this capacity addition to the next fiscal owing to the slowdown witnessed in the auto industry. Some of the projects scheduled for completion during 2012-13 and 2013-14 include MRF’s passenger car radial (PCR) facility at Angampally (Andhra Pradesh) and radial / bias at Trichy (Tamil Nadu), Apollo’s radial tyres at Chennai (Tamil Nadu), JK Tyres’ radial tyres at Sriperumbudur (Tamil Nadu), Balkrishna’s specialty tyre capacities at Bhuj (Gujarat) and Ceat’s radial tyres at Halol (Gujarat). With these additions, the industry is geared for handling the anticipated increase in radial demand until 2015 / 2016. Further, foreign majors like Bridgestone and Michelin are investing in India with large capacities to gain competitive advantage over the domestic peers.

An outdoor activity you would miss office for? Golf is an outdoor activity I would miss my office for. Where did you go for your last holiday? Ooty.
