Outlook -: The electronics, electrical and consumer durable will continue to see a strong uptrend in the medium to long-term driven by macroeconomic and industry factors like increasing disposable incomes, increased ease of availability of finance, low product penetration levels, growing middle class, favorable demographics, urbanisation and nuclearization of families, premiumization in metros and urban towns, and increasing distribution reach by companies in tier II and tier III cities. In addition, the government’s push for housing for all, increasing availability of electricity and GST rate reduction will fuel, well for long term growth prospects of the sector.
