Mumbai: While the impact of demonetisation on consumer demand seems largely over in urban areas, firms are still cautious in launching new products, which are high risk and involve high cost.

Large firms have shifted their focus towards lower end of consumption basket where they are seeing potential for further growth.

“Acceleration in low end of consumption is witnessed across categories (Dosa chains are growing faster than burger chains and they have a bigger market) and companies are trying to capture that through lower priced stock keeping units to increase penetration and drive volume growth, especially in rural markets,” he said.
