<p>According to him, the business, which produced 5.3 million units in 2022–2023, has improved the user experience of digital channels, which have become a popular destination for consumers’ pre- and post-purchase demands.</p>
<p>According to Munjal, the business has made considerable investments in modernizing its information technology systems, deploying automation technologies, and using sophisticated analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities.</p>
<p>He said, “By the end of the current fiscal, our flagship project, the ‘Digital Factory Lighthouse,’ installed in the manufacturing facility at Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh, targets increasing productivity by 20%.”</p>
<p>According to Munjal, the semi-urban and rural markets in India, which faced difficult conditions throughout the year, are the main drivers of the demand for motorbikes and scooters.</p>
<p>But, he said, the underlying growth drivers are still in place.</p>
<p>According to Munjal, “We remain confident that Hero MotoCorp will pave the way to a successful 2023–24 given the country’s young skilled population, the strong economic growth potential of rural and semi-urban areas, easier access to consumer credit, and a swelling demand for last-mile connectivity.”</p>
<p>The two-wheeler industry leader said that despite difficult market circumstances throughout the world, it continues to invest in brand development, new product introductions, and extending network coverage.</p>
<p>The biggest two-wheeler manufacturer in the world, he said, “we remain committed to our market development efforts and have long-term plans for establishing our presence in new markets and growing our share in existing ones.”</p>
<p>Munjal said that moving forward, the business plans to increase the value emphasis on both its internal combustion engine (ICE) and electric vehicle (EV) products.</p>
<p>“We expect a healthy growth and are targeting production of over 6.5 million two-wheelers in 2023-24 for domestic and export purposes,” the official said.</p>
