The Indian automobile sector as a whole had a modest comeback on June 22. Despite a shortage of semiconductors, the Passenger Vehicle (PV) industry recorded volume growth while the demand was still strong. The domestic 2W market is still having trouble, although future growth is likely to be slow. The lower base, stronger infrastructure spending, and increased freight transit across India were the primary drivers of the CV segment's growth, but the Tractor segment's performance improved from the preceding months.

In June 2022, industry Passenger Vehicles sales improved year on year. Passenger vehicles continue in high demand, and a clear rebound may be witnessed in light of the semiconductor issue. In the future, a quicker volume rebound is expected in the segment.

Industry 2-Wheeler sales increased QoQ in June 2022, driven by strong rural demand and the wedding season. Even so, the recovery is tardy since the economy is still working to return to pre-pandemic levels.

The improvement in industry Commercial vehicle sales in June 2022 on a year-on-year basis was mostly the result of a reduced base, the opening up of the economy, a resurgence in freight transportation, and an uptick in building activity. In the future months, a solid volume increase is expected.

On a QoQ basis, the industry's tractor sales increased in June 2022. In the upcoming months, consistent volume growth underpinned by a favorable monsoon season is expected.
