Performance of Private Corporate Business Sector: 2016-17 to Q3:2017-18

This article reviews the performance of the private (non-financial) business sector on the basis of financial statements furnished by the listed non-government non-financial companies.

Major highlights:

  • A turnaround in sales growth of the corporate sector took hold in 2016-17 and has extended into the current year so far.

  • The cost of raw materials of the manufacturing sector continued to rise at a fast pace and showed no sign of easing till Q3:2017-18.

  • Low capacity utilisation in the manufacturing sector led to significant deleveraging as well as lower investments in fixed assets, with companies preferring investments in financial and liquid assets during 2016-17.

  • A stark contrast was observed in the performance of heavily indebted companies in the manufacturing vis-a-vis the rest of the sample.
