Amit Syngle, managing director & CEO of Asian Paints, “It has been an outstanding year for us with a 14% volume growth and 20% value growth in our standalone business and a net profit growth of 31%. Our growths in both the Industrial coatings have been stellar, growing double digits in volume and value, delivering one of the highest profits in the last 2 decades. Overall, at a consolidated level we crossed Rs. 34,000 crores revenue and along with our décor and services diversification, we are now the largest integrated player in Home Décor Business.”

He further stated, ‘In this quarter we have logged in the highest value ever, with the decorative and non-automotive Industrial businesses registering double digit volume and value growths. We have been able to improve our margins in the quarter sequentially and over last year through our persistent work on formulation and sourcing efficiencies and also helped by the easing inflation in raw material prices. In Home décor, our new categories of fabrics, decorative lighting, UPVC doors and windows did well, while Kitchen and bath were sluggish. The Global business was good in Middle East and Africa though but slower in Asia, however overall, delivered good bottom line numbers.”

Going forward, as a market leader, we will continue to aggressively pursue growth. Our performance will be driven by our consistent focus on customer centricity, innovation, sustained investment in B2B business coupled with our powerhouse brand, robust supply chain and distribution network,” Syngle added.
