WHY IT MATTERS
The company, engaged in manufacturing engines for power generation, industrial and automotive sectors, reported an uptick in demand for its diesel engines, benefitting from strong vehicle sales by automotive companies as COVID-related disruptions and chip shortages eased.
During the quarter, the company's domestic sales increased 33.5% year-on-year on a standalone basis, while exports grew 16.6%.
Cummins counts Bhutan and Nepal as its international markets.
