Nestle India is set to report its earnings for the April-June quarter of 2023 on Thursday. The FMCG major is expected to show decent earnings growth with improvement in margins during the quarter.

The demand momentum for consumer companies improved in the April-June quarter with the urban market leading the charge and rural showing signs of recovery too. 

The urban market continues to lead growth while rural is also showing signs of improvement in demand both sequentially and yearly, as companies have started to pass on the benefits of lower commodity costs to consumers, analysts said.

The prices of most commodities have started to decline while some remained stable. This is expected to aid operating margins of the FMCG companies.

Demand for the sector is expected to witness a gradual recovery led by moderating inflation, improving consumer confidence, and an increase in government spending.
