FMCG ad spending growth remains muted in Q3 FY 21-22

With major FMCG players rolling out their Q3 results for FY 2021-22, BestMediaInfo.com analyses the spendings on advertising and sales promotions

The Indian FMCG sector is the fourth-largest sector with household and personal care accounting for 50% of FMCG sales in India. As per the Q3 results for FY 2021-22 of India’s FMCG biggies, spendings on advertisement and sales promotion and net profits were toned down by a few major players.

While brands like P&G Hygiene & Health, Marico, Gillette and Emami increased their ad spends, Dabur, HUL and Colgate-Pamolive had to cut down heavily on this front.

Dabur, which spent Rs 282.38 crore on advertising in Q3 FY 2020-21, spent just Rs 237.07 crore on advertising in the corresponding quarter in 2021-22. The Ayurveda major reduced its spendings by 16% in FY 2021-22.

HUL too reduced its ad spends by approximately Rs 200 crore and it came down to Rs 1189 crore in FY 2021-22, as compared to Rs 1388 crore in FY 2020-21, for the third quarter.
