We attended HUL's analyst meet to get a sense of backroom work behind mammoth scale of marketing, distribution & manufacturing.

- Market leadership in more than 85% of its business; i.e. market leader in eight categories and No. 2 in four categories

- Established 19 new brands in the last 10 years; market development categories contributing Rs. 10,000 crore (20%) to total sales

- Driving premiumisation; contribution up to 33% from 22% in a decade

Key triggers for future price performance

- Home care categories have grown through premiumisation in the last decade with premium laundry contributing 52% of volumes in 2021 vs. 31% in 2010. The segment has seen market share gains of 500 bps

- Digital demand capture is 25% of total sales with e-commerce contributing 7-8% of sales. The biggest lever in digital demand capture is eB2B app 'Shikhar' utilised by 1 million stores
