Energy Stocks in India

The Indian energy sources industry mainly comprises of oil and gas which can be broadly classified into three main segments: exploration and production, storage and transportation and refining, processing and marketing.

India's dependency on oil is huge, being the third-largest consumer of oil in the world. However, it is also the second-largest refiner in the world, with Reliance Industries, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) and BPCL dominating the market.

A cursory glance at history shows a high correlation between the growth in oil and gas products and the growth in the overall economic activities, implying that the long-term demand will be in line with economic growth. Whereas the raw material prices (crude oil) are global and purely a function of geopolitical events and economic growth.

While the prospective demand growth in the sector bodes well for energy stocks, the volatile nature of crude oil prices pose a bit of a problem, affecting the margins. Therefore, the best time to invest in energy stocks is during a downcycle, when the crude oil prices are falling.
