Hansgrohe would like to have our consumers experience the products they see in the Aqua days 2022 at the earliest possible timeline. However, we also need to ensure that we take all the necessary steps to ensure large demand positions remain met. At the same time, we do not want that the consumer experience gets compromised in any way.
Coupled with the current geopolitical situations we do expect that there would be time needed to ensure successful launches across the globe. We will always want to set and live up to the right expectations. So, our communication will be in that regard. Consumers will continue to search for products that elevate their well-being through fulfilling experiences delivered through innovative and responsible product portfolios.
Hansgrohe India focus
Being a bit more focused on the premium and luxury space, we do have a larger share in the retail market. We are also developing new retail formats. These will showcase deeper product capabilities even to the Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities and hence building a larger trade footprint. Having said that we are delighted to see a strong bounce in the real estate space with large premium institutional projects also more visible now. We hope to and are already beginning to have the Brand visible in many such landmark projects.
