Higher share from Bloom, new product launches to aid growth
MTAR's total order book was at Rs. 336 crore as on December 2020. Part of this is Rs. 80 crore, which comes from Clean Energy segment (Bloom Energy). Currently, the company makes hot boxes for Bloom Energy. MTAR is in the process of development and manufacture of hydrogen boxes and electrolysers to serve Bloom. Going ahead, the fuel cell market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14-15%. This coupled with Bloom's tie up with Gail to deploy fuel cell technology is expected to augur well for the company. Further, the company is also in the process of establishing a new manufacturing facility at Adibatla in Hyderabad that will enable it to take sheet metal jobs for Bloom Energy, Isro and certain other customers.
Huge opportunity in nuclear, space & defence segments
India has 22 operational nuclear reactors with a capacity of 6.3 GW. The country plans to double its nuclear capacity to 11.5 GW. Hence, seven new reactors are expected to come into operation in the next five years. This will create a huge opportunity for MTAR in the large refurbishment and maintenance market that is also expected to increase 1.6x. The recent ban on 101 defence based items, thrust towards indigenisation and policy initiatives towards making India an export hub for defence products will further widen the scope and addressable opportunity for MTAR.
