India Inc likely to see lower growth in Q2, FY\'15: Crisil

The Indian industry is likely to log lower revenue growth of 9-10 per cent for the second quarter of the current fiscal due to slower export expansion and weak performance of the investment sector, revealed by research firm Crisil.

 

On the profitability front, Crisil foresees a 0.5 per cent basis point y-o-y jump in EBITDA (operating profit) margins in Q2 FY15.

 

"Crisil Research expects India Inc. to report a revenue growth of 9-10 per cent year-on-year in the September 2014 quarter, lower than 13 per cent growth reported in the June quarter, due to slower growth in export-oriented sectors and the continued weak performance of investment-linked sectors," the firm said.

 

The forecast is based on an analysis of 600 companies, except financial services and oil companies, representing 71 per cent of the overall market capitalisation of India Inc. Export-oriented sectors have been performing extremely well in the past 5 quarters.

 

"Despite healthy volume growth, we project revenue growth of IT service providers to decline to an 8-quarter low of 12 per cent. Similarly, revenue growth of the pharmaceutical sector is also forecast to fall to 14 per cent from 16.3 per cent in the preceding quarter," Mukesh Agarwal, President, Crisil Research told PTI.

 

In textile sector, cotton spinners are likely to see 9 per cent revenue decline on lower export demand from China.

 

Automobile and steel sectors are expected to post 12-14 per cent revenue growth on the back of higher sales volumes as well as strong performance of overseas operations of some companies.

 

FMCG companies are likely to grow by about 15 per cent, propelled by an increase in realisations and superior product mix, Crisil said.

 

Crisil said however that the cement industry is forecast to buck the trend and is expected to see revenue growth of 15-17 per cent, driven largely by increase in realisations on a low base of last year.
 

"The steel and cement sectors will see a 0.9 per cent and 1.8 per cent improvement, respectively, owing to higher realisations," Prasad Koparkar, Senior Director, Crisil Research told PTI.

 

The research firm expects the IT services' sector margins to improve by about 0.85 per cent due to better employee utilisation.

 

It said the surge in data revenues and cost control will drive a 1.1 per cent expansion in EBITDA margins of telecom operators.
