Q2 2021-22: 
 
Commenting on the quarter performance, Mr. Bharat Puri, Managing Director, Pidilite Industries Ltd, said: 
“This quarter, we have delivered very strong value and volume growth across categories, businesses, and geographies. Overall, we witnessed significant improvement in demand conditions across categories and geographies. However unprecedented increases and volatility in input costs has been a major challenge. In this environment, moderated price increases, as well as a sharp focus on operational efficiencies, have helped us navigate the uncertain environment. Going forward we remain cautiously optimistic on continuing robust demand conditions. Unabated commodity inflation and supply availability remains a significant challenge and would require continued focus. Our focus remains on driving consistent, profitable volume growth through investment in our brands, supply chain and people.”
