Urgent deal needed on IPR waiver to deal with covid-19: WTO director general

The World Trade Organization (WTO) has urged members to step up efforts to reach a multilateral deal on waiver of intellectual property rights (IPR) on Covid-19 related vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics mooted by India to fully contribute to the global fight against the pandemic.

WTO said in a statement that a meeting was called on Monday by the multilateral body’s general council in response to India’s proposal to hold a virtual ministerial conference to discuss waiver of relevant intellectual property protections. Waiver of IPR, such as patents held by innovators will enable others to make generic versions of those products, helping reduce costs and improving competition and availability of the said products.

Pricing led growth; margin pressure continues: Axis Direct on Consumer Durables Q3FY22

Demand trends: The overall demand sentiment improved around and post the festive season. However, some moderation in demand was observed in late Nov’21 and Dec’21. Wires & Cables witnessed higher value growth, while volume growth remained subdued. Higher growth was seen in smaller appliances and seasonal products like water-heaters, air-purifiers. Channel checks indicated 4-5% growth in fans during the quarter. For RAC’s, the preference for fixed speed Ac’s continues to be high. While most RAC brands have taken price hikes during the quarter, it may impact demand going forward. For LED lighting, the demand traction remained strong during the festive season but pricing growth outpaced volume growth.

Higher RM costs continue to weigh on margins: The average raw material prices were higher in the case of commodities like Aluminium, Copper & PVC. However, the prices moderated temporarily in Nov’21. The prices of TDI witnessed a moderation in the middle of the quarter but they moved up again by the end of Q3FY22. The high RM prices thus continue to weigh on margins while companies resorted to price hikes to partially offset the price hike.

Key points to monitor: We would watch out for management commentaries on a) Demand momentum post the festive season and preparedness for the possible COVID 3.0, b) Price hikes taken by the companies to pass on the increased RM cost, c) Market share gains vs. unorganized players (for Polycab India and Sheela Foam), d) Updates on production (for Dixon Technologies and Amber Enterprises) under the PLI schemes, and e) Demand trends in rural and urban areas, sales mix, and online sales. We would also closely monitor commentary on international subsidiaries and their performance (especially Symphony and Sheela Foam) as well as export opportunities going forward.

Top result plays:

Positive: Polycab India, Amber Enterprises, Dixon Technologies

Negative: Symphony Ltd.
