Rolls-Royce partners with Hindustan Aeronautics for warship engines

In the last month, Hindustan Aeronautics and Rolls-Royce signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish a support system in India for the highly regarded Rolls-Royce MT30 marine engines.

The HAL-Rolls-Royce partnership will provide packaging, installation, marketing and services support for the MT30 engine, creating a business case for the Indian Navy to consider using the engine for powering and propelling its warships.

So far, Rolls-Royce and HAL have collaborated mainly in building the Adour aero engines that power the Jaguar fighter and Hawk advanced jet trainer.

Apart from that, in February 2021, at Aero India 2021 in Bengaluru, Hindustan Aeronautics and Mishra Dhatu Nigam (MIDHANI) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for development and production of composite raw materials.

Market dynamics

India's defence manufacturing sector has witnessed compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9% between 2016 and 2020.

The Indian government has set the defence production target at US$25 bn by 2025 (including US$5 bn from exports by 2025).

India's defence import value stood at US$463 m for the financial year 2020 and it was expected to be at US$469.5 m in the financial year 2021.

Defence exports in the country witnessed strong growth in the last two years. India targets to export military hardware worth US$5 bn in the next 5 years.

Speaking of the defence sector, have a look at the chart below which shows the top 5 military spending countries in the world as of 2019.

According to a SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) report, India was the third largest military spending country in the world in 2019.

Here's what we wrote about it in one of the editions of Profit Hunter.

  • If you look at the chart closely, you will realise it is likely to remain among the top spenders in the coming years.

    It's because of the second largest spender shown in the chart, China.

    With rising tensions between the two countries, the incentive is strong for India to keep up with China

    .It all makes sense for the government to focus on this sector in a big way in the near future.

    The government's 'Atmanirbhar' push will get a massive boost through local defence manufacturing. This will create profitable opportunities in defence stocks for astute investors.

Co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee keeps a close watch on stocks in the defence space. As per Tanushree, defence will be a big wealth-creating opportunity.
