India's FMCG Market Sees Slower Growth In September Quarter 2012

November 11, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
India's fast moving consumer goods market saw slower growth rates during the quarter ended September 2012, compared with the previous quarters. Hindustan Unilever, for example, reported its volume grew 7 percent during the quarter, down from 9–10 percent of the earlier periods due to lower sales in personal care products. Marico also reported lower growth rates, from 13–14 percent to 6 percent. Factors, including the recent increase in fuel prices, are likely to hit consumers' discretionary spending, further eroding FMCG companies' ability to achieve their sales targets.
