India is a developing country. Working-class is having more money in hand. Households are moving towards spending more than ever before. Cars and bikes are the most sought goods to buy after a sudden increase in the income scale. For price-sensitive Indians, the second-hand vehicle market is gaining traction.
The most used part in vehicles after fuel is the tyres. Be it a new or old vehicle, the tyre is a must. We will talk about the tyre industry today. I think tyre industry shares are currently running in a discount. They are a good bet for emerging India and for our portfolio as well.
