Basics about escorts:
ICICI Securities points out that Escorts has significant exposure to the rural economy through its tractor division, in which it is a leading player and has a 11.4% domestic market share. From the 9MFY21 onwards, Escorts achieved 83% of its sales in the tractor segment. The rest was accounted for by construction machinery (10% of sales) and railways (7% of sales). The domestic tractor room resisted the downward trend of the entire automotive industry in FY 21 and recorded double-digit year-on-year growth.
According to ICICI Securities, the tractor room is currently enjoying medium and long-term supportive tailwinds. Rural cash flows remain relatively strong due to high crop production and sourcing, while the government continues to focus on doubling farm incomes and improving rural infrastructure.
According to ICICI Securities, in addition to continued strength in the farm equipment category, Escorts is also expected to benefit from improved assets in the construction equipment segment. Demand in key economic sectors such as mining, construction, road construction and infrastructure has increased in recent months and sales of serviced construction machine bags, e.g. B. Pick-n-Carry cranes (for material handling) and backhoe loaders (for earth moving) and compactors (for road construction).
According to ICICI Securities, Escorts is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hydraulic pick-n-carry cranes. The rail equipment business had an order backlog of> £ 330 billion as of the third quarter of FY21 with expected exports over the next six months. However, a sharp rise in raw material costs, a normalization of the product mix within the tractors and a high import content in the rail equipment division will weigh on mixed margin performance in the coming quarters. An ongoing strength in tractors, a surge in construction equipment prospects, a healthy balance sheet, and strategic investments from Kubota Corporation are positive factors for Escort.
