Business development in FY 2022-23
Bosch Limited's Mobility Solutions business sector reported a 30 percent increase in product sales during fiscal year 2022-23, largely driven by a 22 percent growth in the overall automotive sector.

Bosch Limited: Outlook for fiscal year 2023-24
Speaking about the outlook for the upcoming fiscal year, Bhattacharya commented: “As we look ahead to fiscal year 2023-24, we recognize the challenges that lie ahead due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by certain macro factors. Despite these challenges, we remain optimistic about the automotive market, which saw record production volumes in FY 2022-23. It also saw good acquisition of projects catering to TREM5 and OBD2 regulations resulting in strong order book, for next 3 to 5 years. We anticipate a moderate growth in India’s GDP, which will likely lead to a 5 to 6 percent increase in the automotive market. At Bosch Limited, we are confident in our ability to navigate these headwinds, particularly as we continue to see an increase in content per vehicle due to components supplied for exhaust gas treatment and implementation of BSVI stage 2. With this in mind, we expect total revenue from sales to grow around 15 percent.”

Bosch Group: outlook for 2023 and strategic course
In 2022, Bosch exceeded its business targets in what was a challenging year. The supplier of technology and services increased its total sales to 88.2 billion euros, the EBIT margin from operations rose from 4.0 to 4.3 percent. “We rose well to the challenges of 2022 – both our sales and our margin were higher than expected,” said Dr. Stefan Hartung, the chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH. Despite the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, Bosch was able to increase its sales by 3.5 percent in the first quarter of 2023. Despite the modest economic outlook, the company is aiming for sales growth of between 6 and 9 percent for the whole year 2023. Its target for EBIT margin from operations in 2023 is in the region of 5 percent. Even if the economic and social environment remains demanding, Bosch wants to grow significantly faster in the coming years. “Our aim is to grow in every region of the world and to be among the leading three suppliers in our relevant markets,” Hartung said.

The fight against climate change is causing considerable upheaval in business and society, and also accelerating technological change. “This technological transformation is opening up growth opportunities that we want to seize. In this context, our ‘Invented for life’ ethos is ideal – not only when it comes to the major trends of electrification, automation, and digitalization, but more than ever also with respect to software and artificial intelligence,” Hartung said. Bosch is responding to this trend toward software-based automotive engineering by realigning its automotive-supply business: within Robert Bosch GmbH, Bosch Mobility will in the future be managed as a business sector with responsibility for its own business and its own leadership team. The aim is to be able to serve existing and new customer needs even better and faster with customized solutions from a single source. The Bosch chairman announced that the newly restructured mobility business is set to grow annually by an average of roughly 6 percent up to 2029, when it will achieve annual sales of more than 80 billion euros.
