  • Govt's axle norms create uncertainty towards Commercial Vehicle cycle outlook##Govt's axle norms create uncertainty towards Commercial Vehicle cycle outlook

    Proposed rated load to be increased by 15-25%


    According to media reports, the Government is contemplating to increase the rated axle load for Medium and Heavy Commercial vehicles (M&HCVs) by 15-25%. In addition, the proposed fine for overloading of trucks is also being increased substantially (10x of current fine). Media articles also suggest that the norms are likely to be notified this week itself.Also, that this regulation is likely to be for prospective sales along with some older fleet as well (post clearances). In our view, the lack of clarity could impact near term volumes. We wait for the official notification before adjusting earnings estimates.


    Prospective v/s retrospective implementation?


    The key question is the scope of application. In our view, if these are implemented on current fleet, then the overall carrying capacity increases materially thereby impacting demand for new trucks (especially those for inter-state transport). In addition, freight rates should also ease which would lower cost of transportation in general. On the other hand, if these norms are implemented on a prospective basis; we expect buyers to postpone purchases till the norms are implemented.

    End of the 'overloading' practice?


    Overloading of existing trucks has been a big issue in India. With the change of the rated load along with higher fines for overloading, the overall occurrence of overloading should come down. That said, our channel checks suggest that for intra-state movements, the overloading is higher than the proposed 15-25% increase. As a result, the impact of these norms is currently difficult to gauge; as it depends on the state-wise implementation.


    Adverse product mix change as a result?


    As per the current axle norms, the rated-load per axle increases as the number of tyres and axles increase. As a result, the expected change in rated load is likely to be more forheavier trucks (>25T) segment. This segment has seen the strongest volume uptick over the last two years and accounts for 52% of FY18 volumes. If implemented the new norms,should impact the demand of heavy trucks (>25T) more than other segments.


    Uncertainty to remain an overhang for stock prices


    The new norms would imply a change in the overall cost of manufacturing (brakes, tyres etc) and should increase the cost of trucks accordingly. That said, in the near term, we expect CV related stocks to remain weak till the uncertainty around implementation of these norms remains. We currently, have an U/PF rating on Ashok Leyland and a Buy rating on Tata Motors.
