Wires and Cables: For the third quarter of the current financial year, this segment contributed Rs. 3,341.79 crore to Polycab’s revenue. This figure stood at Rs. 2,998.76 crore for the same period during FY-22. Therefore, there has been a YoY 11.43% growth in Polycab’s revenue from the Wires and Cables segment.

Comparing the company’s revenue from this segment on a QoQ basis, a healthy 13.22% growth is evident from Rs. 2,951.72 crore clocked during the quarter ended 30th September 2022.

Polycab stated its press release dated 19th January 2023 that the growth in total revenue can be attributed to the growth in volume of the company’s wires and cables business. As per the company, Q3 FY-23 saw the highest volume of wires and cables produced as compared to any quarter.

Despite low commodity prices and high inflation, this increase in volume helped Polycab register healthy growth.

FMEG: Polycab’s revenue from its Fast Moving Electrical Goods (FMEG) portfolio also registered growth on a QoQ basis.

The company reported an FMEG revenue of Rs. 342.01 crore for Q3 of FY-23, which is almost unchanged on a YoY basis, reflecting a negligible growth of 0.48%. Polycab’s revenue from its FMEG business stood at Rs. 340.36 crore during the quarter ended 31st December 2021.

However, on a QoQ basis, this figure grew by a healthy 12% from the Rs. 305.36 crore FMEG revenue reported by the company for the second quarter of the ongoing fiscal. The company has attributed this to increase in demand during October-November of 2022. Moreover, Polycab stated that demand for its FMEG products was also good during December 2022.

The company’s fans business saw a good growth, as distributors resumed stocking of fans after the enforcement of new Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) norms. Several FMEG manufacturers had reported losses due to de-stocking of fans in the previous quarter on account of the change in BEE norms.

Revenue from the EPC segment recorded a YoY growth of 27.35%, rising to Rs. 126.01 crore during Q3 of FY-23 from Rs. 98.95 crore in Q3 of FY-22.
