The market slowdown seems to have taken a break from the two-wheeler industry

The downfall of the two-wheeler industry seems to have taken a break, at least for the time being. Looking at the sales number of the top 10 two-wheelers in August 2019 we can conclude that fall has kind off stopped in its path. There is finally growth, though a minute one, of 0.03%. A total of 344 more units were sold in August when compared to July this year.


However, the YoY growth, by looking at which everyone cries, is -16.58% which is not too bad. The sales in September can fall MoM because of the 15 day period of Shraadh. But we can surely say that the Month of October will bring smiles on the faces of the manufacturers as most auspicious days Navratri will be in the first week of the tenth month.
