Commenting on the robust performance of the company, Smt. Soma Mondal, Chairman, SAIL said, “The Company has been consistently seizing available opportunities to move up the value chain. The performance during the quarter bears the testimony to objective driven strategy and resilience by the SAIL Collective despite the adverse impact of dominant second wave of COVID-19.
Though the demand for steel products in the quarter has not had the same momentum as during Q4 of FY’21, focused interventions in several areas of operations have helped in achieving this robust performance. The demand in the later part of the year is expected to remain healthy with sustained domestic consumption coming from sectors like infrastructure, manufacturing, packaging, automotive, etc. as indicated from the present consumption cycle and future sectoral trends.
