Crop damage due to unseasonal rains in some parts of India in March coupled with deficient monsoon in June led to marginal degrowth of 1.2% in the domestic tractor industry in Q1 F2015.

Outlook:

The economy has been displaying some positive indicators in recent months. Economic activity, led by manufacturing, seems to be reviving as indicated by IIP (Index of Industrial Production) data for April and May 2014. This is confirmed by the pick up in non-oil and gold imports in June 2014. With exports returning to double digit growth, the country’s trade balance remained well under control in the first quarter of the current fiscal. Led by prudent monetary and fiscal management, inflationary pressures continued to moderate.

If the  South West monsoon continues to be weak, it would impact both inflation and consumer demand negatively in the near term. However, there are current indications that the monsoon might be reviving. Possible further escalation of current geo political conflicts could also have an adverse impact. Our outlook on the economy in the short term remains cautious at this point of time.
