Fast-moving consumer goods have been traditionally more resilient to economic slowdowns. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the sector too is facing both demand and supply side challenges, but is still expected to be better placed compared with most consumer-oriented segments.
Rapid deceleration in economic growth, loss or reduction in incomes and purchasing power of consumers, and restricted mobility owing to the nationwide lockdown - all have altered near-term consumption patterns.
How much of this will impact growth and profitability of the sector? Which product segments will do better than the others?
For answers, CRISIL invites you to its webinar, where its experts will speak on:
Growth drivers and key risks for the FMCG sector in fiscal 2021
Impact of the pandemic and lockdown on product segments
Impact on profitability amid slower growth
Credit perspective of FMCG companies
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion by industry leaders, and a Q&A session.
