PV firms to invest around Rs. 65,000 crore

Passenger vehicle makers are expected to invest around Rs 65,000 crore by FY25 to ramp up production capacities to cater to enhanced demand, rating agency ICRA said. It stated that the demand for passenger vehicles has remained healthy since the turn of the calendar year, aided by strong underlying demand and an easing up of semiconductor shortages. The passenger vehicle industry wholesale volumes are expected to touch an all-time high of 3.7-3.8 million units in FY23, a growth of 21-24 per cent over the previous fiscal, driven by robust demand, it added.

With ease in supply chain constraints and semiconductor shortage, capacity utilisation of the OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) improved to healthy levels over the past few quarters — factoring in a continuation of strong demand sentiments, the OEMs have now revved up their capacity expansion plans, ICRA said.
