A Colourful Asian Paints Q4 Result

Among the leaders in the segments of industrial and decorative paints in India, Asian Paints has carved out a niche to make a name for itself and cope amidst competitive market headwinds in Q4 FY24. In Asian Paints Q4 results, there are some bright spots, like double-digit volume growth in the quarter, indicating that the iconic paint manufacturer is on the right business track. Here are vital aspects of the Company’s overall performance in Q4 FY24: 

  • The India Decorative Business clocked volume growth of 10% with Revenue decline of 1.8% in Q4 FY’24, as Revenue was impacted by weak demand conditions and downtrading;  Q4 FY’24 witnessed price cuts across product categories, curbing Revenue growth

  • The Domestic Coatings Business registered Revenue decline of 0.7% in Q4 FY’24, although the Industrial Business delivered a strong quarter  and the Automotive Coatings Business crossed the ₹2,000 Cr Revenue mark in FY24

  • The Home Décor Business continued to witness gains from synergies with the Company’s Beautiful Homes stores 

  • In terms of the International Business, this registered a boost in profitability in Q4 and FY24; but Revenue growth was limited by macro-economic headwinds in the main markets of Nepal and Egypt 

  • The Company has consistently maintained a dividend payout, with a total dividend of ₹33.30 per share; a payout of 60% for the year
