Power of 9 brands
Dabur has identified 9 ‘Power Brands’ – that account for more than 70% of its total Sales.
As part of this strategy, the company has been putting disproportionate investments behind these brands to improve visibility, enhance distribution and drive innovation by way of new products, variants and format launches.
It has also created flanker brands to support its power brands and to cater to varied consumer needs. A majority of these Power Brands fall in the Health Care space, where Dabur has the right to win. With this strategy.
Company seeks to not just grow the categories where it is currently a market leader, but also sizably increase its presence and market share in some large categories where its brands are relatively smaller in size.
Dabur Chyawanprash, Dabur Honey, Dabur PudinHara, Dabur Lal Tail and Dabur Honitus in the Healthcare space; Dabur Vatika, Dabur Amla and Dabur Red Paste in the Personal Care category; and Real in the Food & Beverages category are the nine powerful brands of Dabur.

Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector is India’s fourth-largest sector with household and personal care accounting for 50% of FMCG sales in India.
Growing awareness, easier access and changing lifestyles have been the key growth drivers for the sector. The urban segment (accounts for a revenue share of around 55%) is the largest contributor to the overall revenue generated by the FMCG sector in India.
The FMCG market in India is expected to increase at a CAGR of 14.9% to reach US$ 220 billion by 2025, from US$ 110
billion in 2020. The Indian FMCG industry grew by 16% in CY21 a 9-year high, despite nationwide lockdowns, supported by consumption-led growth and value expansion from higher product prices, particularly for staples.
Indian packaged food market is expected to double to US$ 70 billion by 2025. E-commerce segment is forecast to contribute 11% to the overall FMCG sales by 2030.
The Government of India has approved 100% FDI in the cash and carry segment and in single-brand retail along with 51% FDI in multi-brand retail.
The union government’s production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme gives companies a major opportunity to boost exports with an outlay of US$ 1.42 billion.
Rising digital connectivity in cities and rural areas is driving the demand for FMCG (through e-commerce portals).
Increase in disposable income in rural India and low penetration levels in rural market offers room for growth.
The Management expects rural (~45% of revenue) to recover only in H1FY23 aided by a normal monsoon outlook, higher MSP and favorable crop output.
The management says, it will maintain current EBITDA Margins on a full-year FY23 basis despite RM headwinds through a combination:
1) Price hikes
2) Judicious A&P spends
3) Cost optimizations.
Dabur has already taken a price hike of ~5-6% in FY22 in domestic business and will further look to raise prices to offset the impact of rising RMs on overall profitability.
In Q4FY22, it witnessed 16% inflation while for FY22 inflation was 12.5%. Dabur expects another 8-9% inflation across its product portfolio in H1FY23.
Overall NPD (New Product Development) contribution to sales stood at 5% in Q4FY22 while e-comm NPD contributes to 10% of the sales.
It will continue to invest in NPD as new channels like e-com (7% of sales) provide better traction and testing.
Management’s focused approach on scaling up power brands through extension/variants, deeper distribution and strong management bandwidth.
This drives confidence in the sustainability of the company’s growth.
However, near-term growth challenges and margins pressure remains.
At CMP, the stock trades at 40x of FY24E EPS. We recommend a BUY rating in the Dabur India Share Price Target 2022 (TP) of Rs.585, 47x FY24E EPS.
Inflationary Risk – High food inflation has an adverse effect on the FMCG industry. People will spend less money on discretionary items which will hit the FMCG industry. Though companies took price hikes to pass on the prices, the margins will take time to recover.
Competitive Risk – The domestic FMCG business continues to witness intense competition with multiple established players, including some large multinational players as well as domestic companies. Dabur being an established player with a sizeable market share had faced competitive pressure in the past and remains exposed to risks of heightened competition.
Covid related Risk – Any increase in covid cases or a new variant emergence will result in a chance of lockdown which will impact the FMCG recovery.
