Thoughts there were some downfall in sales and profit of the company in the beginning of this decade but after that HUL has shown considerable rise in both sales and profit. The future of the company is also looking bright as FMCG market in India is still expanding and so we can safely conclude that HUL will be able to secure its number one position in FMCG product. HUL has also started “PROJECT SHAKTI” that has provided it direct reach to rural market. This may be considered a revolutionary strep since the urban market is reaching its saturation level and there is a huge scope exploring rural market. This will also be helpful not only increasing its market share but also fight competition.
