Multibaggers Opportunities Brought by the Rebirth of India

Jan 31, 2019

Tanushree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research

Did you hear that India just replaced Japan as the world's second-largest steel producing country?

Yes. that's right!

In 2018, India's steel production stood at 107 MT, an increase of 5% over last year. Japan, on the other hand, saw a marginal decline of 0.3% at 104 MT.

Every day, more news comes in strengthening the case for the Rebirth of India.

And here's something I believe is even more interesting...

From 2013, India's steel production has grown faster than China's.

Mind you, this is not because of exports. Our steel industry's growth has been driven by domestic consumption.

This is not the case with other major steel producers in the world. They are more dependent on exports.

The government's target of 300 MT capacity by 2030 is looking realistic now.

Why am I so confident about this? Just look at the numbers...

India's per capita steel consumption has jumped from 58 kg to 68 kg in the last three years.

But this number is way below the world's average of around 213 kg.

Just imagine the huge scope for growth. Think of the multibaggers this industry could produce. And to think that people say, steel is a boring industry!

Actually, steel consumption is one of the key methods to measure the quality of life.

It is also a strong indicator of economic development.

Steel Plays an Important Role in Nation Building

In the coming years, steel demand will grow in India. This is on the back of increased infrastructure construction, a thrust on affordable housing, and the thriving auto sector.

I can give you two more reasons... our country's favourable demographics and increasing use of steel in rural areas.

And don't forget that China's stringent environmental protection measures will lead to capacity cuts in that country. This will help support the profitability of our industry.

India's steel industry is in a sweet spot.

However, the journey hasn't been smooth recently.

The steel industry is the largest contributor to the banking system's non-performing assets (NPAs).

Why?

  • These companies expanded capacity with a lot of debt
  • There was excessive dumping from China
  • Steel prices declined globally

Companies like Essar Steel, Monnet Ispat, Bhushan Steel, Electrosteel Steels, and JSPL suffered in the downturn.

But the cycle has now turned.

In the last year, we've seen successful resolution of these cases through the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) framework.

Tata Steel acquired Bhushan steel. Vedanta bought Electrosteel Steels. JSW Steel bought Monnet Ispat.

Not to mention, the world's biggest steel producer, ArcelorMittal, is eying Essar Steel.

I believe, this consolidation will drive improvement in the industry's capacity utilisation.

This will also lead to better use of technology, more innovation, and most importantly... more profits for shareholders.

This will create a structurally strong Indian Steel Industry.

Why is this important for the Rebirth of India?

Steel is one of the most important sectors in the economy. It is among the eight core industries. It contributes 2% to the country's GDP.

If India's GDP must grow at 8%+, strong participation of the steel industry is a must.

India is clearly on the right path in this regard.

But this is just one irreversible trend in our economy. Over the last few months, I've discovered 50!

That's right. I've found 50 irreversible trends that are changing India for the better. The steel industry's recovery is just one of them.

When I put these 50 trends together, the changes will result in the Rebirth of India.

I won't get tired of saying this - the Rebirth of India is at the heart of my big prediction: Sensex 100,000.

I believe, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy multibagger stocks across many sectors.

Just remember this, dear reader. This great transformation in our economy will happen only once...and you must make the most of it.
