BENGALURU: Wipro Consumer Care and Lighting (WCCL), part of the unlisted entity Wipro Enterprises, has entered the $1-billion-dollar revenue club. The company did Rs 6,630 crore, or just about $1 billion, in 2017-18. That’s a growth of 10% from last year, when it did $908 million.

WCCL CEO Vineet Agrawal had told TOI in February that a stronger foothold in Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia, and the continued gains of the Indian portfolio led by the Santoor and Chandrika brands have fuelled growth for the division. WCCL gets 50% of its revenue from international markets. Malaysia contributes a little over $145 million, and China $120 million. Indonesia, which had a sluggish first half, bounced back with a double-digit growth in the second half of last year, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
