Maruti won't walk away but fight to get back to 50% market share: Chairman

The country's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India will not "walk away" and fight to get back to 50 per cent market share in the domestic passenger vehicle segment, according to company Chairman R C Bhargava. The auto major, which is commemorating 40 years of operations, has seen its market share drop to 43.38 per cent in FY22 from a peak of 51.21 per cent in FY19. In order to get back its dominant leadership, the company plans to drive in models catering to both urban and smaller cities and rural areas. In 2018-19, domestic passenger vehicle sales were at 33,77,436 units, which dropped to 30,69,499 units in 2021-22. Maruti Suzuki India achieved its highest-ever annual sales of 17,29,826 units in 2018-19, cornering a market share of 51.21 per cent. It declined to 43.38 per cent at 13,31,558 units in 2021-22. "We will fight to get back to our 50 per cent market share. How much we succeed only time will tell but we certainly don't intend to walk away and say no we don't want to figh

Maruti chairman says understanding customers key to firm's 40-year success

From what started out as an "accident" doomed to fail to becoming a dominant force in the automotive industry, helping the country to become the fourth largest automobile market in the world, the success of Maruti Suzuki India needs to be replicated in other industries, according to its Chairman R C Bhargava. As the company gears up to celebrate 40 years of operations, Bhargava said Maruti Suzuki India has played a significant role in the development of the country's automotive industry, supply chain of components and allied sectors which are now playing a major role in the global markets. In an interview with PTI, he said India is generally ranked low globally when it comes to the overall manufacturing sector, but in automobiles the country is the fourth largest car manufacturer in the world. Also, the components industry last year exported USD 19 billion worth of items. "So, some of these things have to be viewed in the context of what we added to that thing," he asserted, adding
