Maruti Suzuki Limited

“We expect that A-star will enable our company to reach a different level in our exports.
Last year, Maruti Suzuki exported 53,000 cars to over 40 countries. This was the highest
ever annual export in our history. However, with the A-star, we are targeting to make a
quantum jump, and scale up our exports to around 200,000 cars in 2010-11.”

– Shinzo Nakanishi,
Managing Director and CEO, Maruti

On 19th Nov 2008, India’s largest car maker, Maruti Suzuki launched its strategic model ‘A-star’ a
Euro V compliant model in A-segment to explore new markets in domestic as well as overseas and
primarily to boost its exports in the coming years. A-star is the fifth world strategic model of its
parent company Suzuki, as a part of its global market strategy for small cars segment and to
leverage the low cost manufacturing capabilities of the company. This car has been designed to
keeping in mind aspirations of the urban environment conscious customers. Company has used
latest technologies to make it as most fuel efficient petrol car. In addition it represents a green car,
capable of being 85% of it being recycled. This would help to make the car more acceptable.
With this launch company has the opportunity to re-launch itself in the European markets, which it
had left two years back because lack of suitable model. Now it is targeting a yearly volume of
100,000 in Europe and other parts of the world. Company had already entered into an export
contract for this new model, with Nissan a European auto giant. Company sources believe that this
would take its exports to around 200,000 cars by FY 11. In domestic front also, company expect
this model to be well accepted of its sporty and compact look, matching with the earlier success
full launched models Swift, Dzire, and SX4.
The company had already built a new technology world class manufacturing facilities at Manesar
to manufacture one million units per year. In partnership with Adani Group Company build new
export cargo infrastructure facilities to support its ambitious export plans. Maruti Suzuki wants to
celebrate their silver jubilee by exploring new growth opportunities with this launch and plans to
maintain its leadership position which it has for the last 25 years in the domestic market of Indian
Automobile Industry.

Industry Overview
The automotive industry in India was de-licensed in July 1991, which put the industry on a new
growth track, attracting foreign auto giants to set up their production facilities in India to take
advantage of various benefits the latter offered. As a result, production increased manifold – from
5.3 million units in 2001-02 to 10.8 million units in 2007-08. Other reasons that attracted global
auto manufacturers to India are – India’s huge middle class population, fast growth in earning
power, strong technological capability, and availability of trained manpower at competitive prices.
In 2006-07, the Indian automotive industry provided direct employment to more than 300,000
people, exported auto components worth around US$2.87 billion; and its contribution to the GDP
reached 5%. In recognition of the large contribution of automotive industry to the national
economy, the Indian government lifted the requirement of forging joint ventures for foreign
companies, and thereby leading the global players to establish their production facilities in India.
The past few years witnessed a rapid change in all the segments of the Indian passenger vehicle
industry. International competition, increase in the number of participants, and the need to counter
pressure on margins made it a buyer’s market rather than a seller’s market. Today, customers have
an array of models to choose from. Especially the customers comprising young adults with their
rising income levels, coupled with the low Equal Monthly Installments (EMIs), found vehicle
purchase affordable. With increased foreign competition in passenger vehicles, domestic
participants are quickly moving to catch up and compete with them by investing in R&D, and
improving overall efficiency. The Indian automobile market is currently dominated by
two-wheeler segment; but in future, the demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles will
increase with industrial development and also, because India has low vehicle presence (with
passenger car stock of only around 11 per 1,000 population in 2008). Taking these factors into
consideration, automobile manufacturers now intend to provide cars in every segment with
widened price range so as to reach more potential customers.
Total capacity for passenger vehicles PV in India stood at around 2.5 million units in 2007-08
against 1.25 million units in 2002-03, a CAGR of around 15%. However, the capacity utilization
of the industry fell to around 71% in 2007-08 from 87% in 2006-07. During 2007-08, the total
capacity increased by almost 40%. This was on account of major capacity expansions undertaken
by OEMs like Honda Siel, Maruti and Hyundai towards the end of 2007-08. Moving forward, car
manufacturers announced ambitious capital expenditure plans over the next 2-3 years. Driven by
high domestic demand and increasing exports, the capacity is expected to touch 3.9 million units
by 2009-10 (CRISIL).

Industry Value Chain

Figure 1: Automobile Value Chain

First the company conducts research on consumer wants and needs; and on the basis of results
obtained, designing of various models is done. Raw Material includes rubber, glass, steel, plastic
and aluminum. Tires, windshields, and airbags are examples of parts. While the automobile
industry as a whole has become more consolidated, the auto component sector remains highly
fragmented. Due to the combination of rising raw material costs and consumer’s search for the
lowest price, companies are looking for ways to cut costs out of the manufacturing process. Recent
trends to reduce costs include using fewer parts in each vehicle component, minimizing industrial
waste and pollution, and having parts delivered to assembly plants on a just-in-time basis.
Marketing is an integral part of the value chain. Automakers and individual dealers work together
to create national, regional, and local marketing strategies. Firms have now started advertising
more online. After production is complete, distribution takes place and automobiles are shipped to
local, national and to dealerships around the world to be sold.

Industry Segments
The passenger vehicle market is divided broadly into the following three categories:
a. Passenger cars
b. Multi Purpose Vehicles (MPV)
c. Multi Utility Vehicles (MUV).
Depending upon the dimension, and seating capacity, Passenger Car market is divided into
6 sub-divisions with A2 and A3 further divided into two more sub-divisions each. The Utility
vehicle category is also divided further into two sub-divisions based again on the seating capacity.
They have higher load carrying capacity on varied basis as given below:

The Passenger Vehicles (PV) market grew 14% YoY to 1,762,131 units as against 1,545,223 units
sold in 2007-08. It is largely attributed to the impressive growth in the passenger car segment in
FY2007-08. The passenger car segment contributed 80% to the total PV sales in FY2007-08.
Marketwise, healthy growth backed it in its domestic sales and exports (refer to Annexure V).
Key Players
In all the segments of the automobile industry, Maruti leads the pack with Dealer networks and
workshops across the country based on the Car-dealer networks and authorized service stations.
The key players in the industry (along with their domestic market share) are as follows:

Regulatory Norms
Automotive Mission Plan 2006-2016
Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh released India’s ‘Automotive Mission Plan’ (AMP)
2006-2016, which envisions India’s endeavors towards becoming a global auto hub. The Ministry
of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises has drawn the AMP. The AMP calls for auto sector
investments of $40 billion over the next ten years to achieve a turnover of $145 billion from the
current $35 billion by 2016, accounting for 10 per cent of GDP. The Plan also focuses on
increasing India’s auto sector exports, which are presently worth $4.1 billion, to at least $35 billion
so as to make India a prominent player in the global market. It is a 25-point plan to make India a
global manufacturing and export hub for small cars, multi-utility vehicles, two and three-wheelers,
tractors, and auto components. The 25-point Automotive Mission Plan includes – establishment of
National Automotive Testing and R&D Infrastructure Development Project (NATRIP), several
initiatives for creation and fulfillment of automotive demands, for the betterment of society and
environment, and for acting as a catalyst in generating an additional 25 million jobs.
In 2002, the Indian Government formulated an Auto Policy aimed at promoting an integrated
growth of the industry, which involved Investment Incentives by the State Governments. Some of
the incentives that different states provide include: Customized incentives for Large Investments,
Automatic Approval for Foreign equity investment up to 100% and absence of minimum
investment criteria. Apart from these, manufacturers engaged in in-house research and R&D
activities will get weighted tax deduction up to 150%. Also Government’s emphasis on low
emission fuel auto technologies and availability of appropriate auto fuels and encouragement to
construction of safer bus/truck bodies (unorganized sector) also to 16% excise duty on body
building activity as in case of OEMs.

As a result of various regulations, the cumulative growth in the PV segment during April
2007-March 2008 was 12.17 % in the domestic market. The growth in Passenger Cars was 11.79
%, Utility Vehicles was 10.57 %, and Multi Purpose Vehicles was 21.39% during this period. The
growth in the Commercial Vehicles segment was marginal at 4.07 %. While growth in Medium &
Heavy Commercial Vehicles declined by 1.66 %, Light Commercial Vehicles recorded a growth of
12.29%. Three Wheelers sales fell by 9.71% with sales of Goods Carriers declining significantly
by 20.49% and Passenger Carriers declined by 2.13% during FY2008 compared to last year.
Automobile Exports registered a growth of 22.30% during the current financial year. The growth
was led by two-wheelers segment, which grew at 32.31 percent. Commercial Vehicles and
Passenger Vehicles exports grew by 19.10 % and 9.37% respectively. Exports of Three Wheelers
segment declined by 1.85%.

Future Outlook
Automotive industry is moving upward rapidly in the country and in Asian regions, principally due
to a saturation of the automotive industry in the western world. Indian automobile industry is
playing a major role in Asian Automobiles markets along with the Association of South-East Asian
Nations (ASEAN) and China. Various financial institutions and rating agencies analyzed the
growth rate of India’s economy and have forecast a growth in the economy in future at the rate of
8%. Although the industry bears the brunt of recession, the sales figures of December ’08 are true
indicators of global slow down. India’s growing middle class, strong economy (although recession
has hit the economy, but on an optimistic and positive note, it will soon come over and bounce
back), and trained workforce indicate a bright future for the automobile industry. All the big

foreign players – General Motors, Mercedes Benz, Skoda Auto – are eyeing the Indian market and
all these have big plans for India and are willing to invest huge funds. Hyundai has already
invested huge amounts in India and is positioned as the small car-manufacturing hub of the world,
which reflects a spiraling demand from domestic and international markets. Auto sector is
emerging as one of the fastest growing manufacturing sectors both in India and across the globe.
As per the Automotive Mission Plan 2006-16, automobile industry’s contribution to the GDP
would increase to 10.4% by 2015 while its size is expected to be worth US$145 billion; and also
generating a total employment of 25 million by 2016.

Maruti Suzuki India Ltd: Overview

Maruti Suzuki India limited (MSIL) is the largest passenger car manufacturer in India with a
market share of over 50%. MSIL formerly Maruti Udyog Limited (MUL) was established in Feb
1981 through an act of parliament, as a government company with Suzuki Motor Corporation of
Japan holding 26 per cent stake. Its actual production commenced in 1983 with the Maruti 800 car
based on the Suzuki Alto keicer, which was the only modern car available in India at that time; its
only competitors were Hindustan Ambassador and Premier Padmini. Till 2004, it remained India’s
largest selling compact car ever since its launch while MSIL remained the Indian car market leader
for over two decades. In 2002, Government of India (GOI) ceded majority control to Suzuki
through rights issue. The GOI subsequently sold 25.6% of its stake to investors in an IPO. Now,
Suzuki owns 54.21% of Maruti.

Company’s Strategies
Based on its Business model, Maruti has been offering various passenger cars. In most of the
segments, it is the undisputed market leader. The Company launched three new models in the year
2008, including Premium sedan SX4, a luxury Sports Utility Vehicle Grand Vitara, and an
entry-level sedan Swift DZire (in both petrol and diesel versions) even while Alto continued to be
India’s largest selling car. Maruti services businesses include sale and purchase of pre-owned cars
(True Value), lease and fleet management service for corporate (N2N), Maruti Insurance and

Maruti Finance. The Company, in association with various banks, launched innovative financing
schemes. Regular advertising is also a major activity for the company. Maruti makes available
leasing services for corporate and other customers and it earns through this route also. Maruti’s
revenue stream includes passenger cars, automobile financing, insurance intermediary, leasing and
fleet management, pre-owned car business, and spare parts and accessories. The size of pre-owned
car market is bigger than the market for new cars; thus Maruti is actively focusing on it. Since it
has large product portfolio and better reach through its distribution networks, it engaged in
insurance intermediary activity through tie-ups with national insurance companies.
New Engine Facility
The Company is setting up a new gasoline engine plant at its Gurgaon facilities. The new engines
produced will be more fuel-efficient and help to serve the customer better. The plant will be
commissioned by producing engines for ‘A-Star’ followed by other models in the coming years. In
the year 2007-08, the Company signed two joint venture agreements with global component
manufacturers for cost reduction through localization of components for Maruti Suzuki cars. The
first was with Magneti Marelli, aimed at the production of Electronic Control Units (ECU) for
diesel engines and the second with Futaba Industrial Company, Japan, for production of exhaust
system parts. The focus area for component cost reduction is raw material yield improvement
across all manufacturing processes, like sheet metal, castings, forgings, and machining. Every
component is studied in detail and innovative ideas tried to reduce the input material weight for the
same component output. The total cost of raw material as a percentage of net sales ranges from
15% to 20%.
With the implementation of the strategies, Gross revenue of the company for FY08 stood at
Rs.188,238 million, as against Rs.152,523 million in the previous year up by 23.42% backed by
growth in volumes. The A3 segment (Sedans) helped co in increasing its market share from 15% to
22% due to a good demand for SX4 and Swift Dzire during the year. The Company maintained its
leadership position in the A2 segment with the market share remaining above 58%. While there is
intense competition for this segment, Swift drives the demand mainly. Earnings Before
Depreciation, Interest, Tax and Amortization (EBDITA) stood at Rs.31,308 million against
Rs.25,888 million in the previous year, recording a jump of 20.9%. Revision of the estimated
useful life of certain assets resulted in depreciation being higher by Rs.2,122 million for the
current year with a corresponding reduction in profit for the year and net fixed assets. Profit
Before Tax (PBT) stood at Rs.2, 5030 million against Rs.22798 million in the previous year
showing a growth of 9.8% and Profit After Tax (PAT) stood at Rs.17308 million against Rs.15,620
million in the previous year showing a growth of 10.8%.
Maruti Suzuki is leader in A1 (Mini) segment mostly Maruti 800 and its variants, and has almost
100% share, while in A2 (Compact) segment it holds nearly 60% of share and models dominating
here are namely, Alto, WagonR and Swift. In the A2, the main competitor is Hyundai Motors India
Limited with 22% market share. A3 segment is growing at scorching pace due to rise in salary
levels and demographic factors. Maruti is the market leader in this segment as well with 32%
market share. There is intense competition in this segment with slew of launches in the coming
season. Models dominating here are – SX4, Verna, Esteem and Swift Dzire. Swift Dzire is growing
in a big way (Refer to Annexure VI).
Dominance Due to Large Sales Network
Maruti enjoys the largest sales network and service network with additions made every New Year
reaching new cities and achieving scaling. The company has been taking aggressive initiatives for
targeting different segments of buyers and launching the schemes for the same. Some of them are
– ‘Wheels of India’ for state government employees, ‘First Class Offer’ for Railway employees,
‘Power Deal’ for NTPC employees, ‘Steel Wheel’ for SAIL employees, ‘Teachers’ Scheme’ and
‘Dil Se’ for Non-Resident Indians.

The Company is ranked first for Customer Satisfaction for eight successive years in the annual
survey conducted by J D Power Asia Pacific. It was the only player above industry average despite
the large number of customers it has to serve. The Company dealers and authorized service
stations serviced more than 10 million cars in the year.

Segmental Analysis
Vehicle Business Domestic
In Domestic market, Maruti fared well in 2007-08 as compared to 2006-07. But in FY09, its sales
figures are found sliding recording the largest fall in August and November 2008, where it
registered negative growth due to negligible demand from consumer side (Refer to Annexure VII).

A2 is the Driver Segment

A2 (Compact) segment is the main driver of growth. Although this year (FY09) particularly the
first quarter overall sales figures declined somewhat the A2 segment is still main driver and the
product mix is nearly about 66.5%. In A2 growth driver is mainly Alto and much growth is
observed in swift in recent months. Foray into alternate fuel segments (with LPG powered Wagon
R and diesel powered Swift) saw a very encouraging response from customers (Refer to Annexure VII).


Exports show considerably good increase in volumes due to focus on compact cars. The company
is boosting exports by adding markets such as Indonesia, Chile and Egypt for its existing models
like M800, Alto and Zen and by launching the ‘A Star’ to cater exclusively to Europe. Company
has an export target of 250,000 cars per year by 2010-11(Refer to Annexure VII).

Spares and Accessories Business

The company draws competitive advantage from the fact that its car parts are priced
competitively and affordable. In FY08, the company achieved new milestone of a gross
turnover of Rs.10 billion in the spares and accessories business. This marked a growth of 19%
over the previous year. Company established spares stockyard in select centers across the
country to meet customer requirements faster. The business is supported by a robust back end
operation, which employs technology and competence in logistics to deliver on time to
customers across the country.

Service Business
The service business of the company, after some initial wavering, has now taken off. It aims at
enhancing all customer-related services in a transparent manner under one roof. Company believes
in offering the entire range of car-related services in a convenient and transparent manner and
implementing standards to improve customer service. Further, with a car population of nearly 6.5
million Maruti Suzuki cars, service maintenance and repairs make a healthy contribution to
profitability of dealerships.

Pre-Owned Car Business

The pre-owned car business, or True Value is a major driver of sales performance, which facilitates
new car sales through exchange and trade-ins and also contributes to dealer profitability. In FY 08
a total of 84,323 new cars were sold in exchange, accounting for 12 percent of total new car sales.

Future Outlook

By scrutinizing the its segmental performance backed by Government’s policy to encourage the
auto component manufacturers made Suzuki to take up the decision to source compact cars from
India and sell them in Europe. And A-Star is the latest one on Suzuki’s map to achieve that dream.
The diesel engine plant in Manesar is established to give this a fillip. Also, the Company is
focusing on the global compact car segment besides maintaining its domestic share.
Due to fluctuations in steel prices, raw material costs as percentage of sales had risen in previous
three quarters and considering the global trend may continue. Currently, fall in commodity prices
will help MSIL to benefit from 1QFY10, as 2HFY09 will continue to witness higher RM cost due
to inventory, contracts and adverse currency movement on imports The situation needs to be
addressed by better production planning, which include entering into long-term sourcing contracts,
hedging the risks and resorting to value analysis, and value engineering to reduce wastages and
cost. Maruti is already taking steps in the right direction. Also better localization will definitely
lead to cut in costs and improved efficiency.
Easy availability of low cost finance is a key demand driver for automobile sector. However, the
sharp fall in commodity prices, clogging up of inventory lines, liquidity crunch faced by the Indian
banking system, drying up the other funds sources and uncertainty with respect to demand
prompted the Indian corporate to either abandon or defer their Capex plans and go slow on fresh
Capex announcements.
Unlike two wheeler or commercial vehicle sector, PV market is fairly fragmented. There are 14
players and more than 80 models in the market. So, there exists high competition in the segment.
Increased competition has led to fierce price competition, which in turn has resulted in reduced
margins for players. Now with increase in the cost of inputs, competition can result in further
reduction in the profitability.
