With the summer season already underway, distributors are reporting high demand for most summer items, including fans, air coolers, and air conditioners.

As per the Motilal Oswal report, secondary sales (distributor-retailer channel) of refrigerators, LED lights, and pumps have grown in the range of 10–20 per cent year-on-year (YoY) during the January-March quarter.

On the other hand, demand for washing machines and dishwashers has moderated after growing strongly during April–December 2020. March quarter could see it growing in higher single digits.
