Titan, India’s largest branded jewellery maker, reported a 50% YoY growth in its standalone Q4 net profit to ₹734 crore, thanks to a comeback in the wedding segment. The segment beat the overall retail segment in terms of growth. For the full FY23, Titan’s net profit rose nearly 53% to ₹3,333 crore due to the low-base effect of FY22.

Aided by wedding season demand, Titan’s revenue from operations in Q4 grew 33% YoY to ₹9,704 crore, while for the full FY23, the revenue grew 40.7% to ₹38,270 crore.

Its earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose 37% YoY to ₹1,053 crore during the quarter, while EBIT margins rose to 12% in Q4 from 11% a year ago.

“The year gone has witnessed several firsts in the history of Titan. The jewellery, watches & wearables and eyecare achieved landmark milestones of ₹30,000 crore, ₹5,000 crore and ₹1,000 crore of annual consumer retail sales respectively for the first time in their retail journeys,” said CK Venkataraman, MD, Titan Company.

The company declared a dividend of ₹10 per share.


Jewellery business’ share in the company’s topline stood at 89% in Q4, witnessing a marginal decline from a year ago. The watches and wearables segment, on the other hand, inched up to 9%, eating into the share of the jewellery business.

“Higher price bands continued to see better growths. The studded mix was also higher for the quarter, sequentially, due to the seasonal activation, and also higher YoY compared to the same period last year,” the company said in a press release.

The company also opened its first Tanishq store in the USA and a Titan Eye+ store in Dubai this year. Its net store count went up by 173 in Q4, slightly faster than the previous quarter when the company added 129 stores. Titan’s overall store count came in at 2,710 across 404 towns at the end of March 2023.

“Competitive intensity on gold rates continued to remain high. Margins in the studded category normalized to pre-Covid levels with consumption of older lower cost diamond inventory getting over in Q3FY23,” the company said.
