In 2019, India surpassed the US to become the second largest market in terms of number of app downloads. The liberal and reformist policies of the Government of India have been instrumental along with strong consumer demand in the rapid growth in the Indian telecom sector. The Government has enabled easy market access to telecom equipment and a fair and proactive regulatory framework, that has ensured availability of telecom services to consumer at affordable prices. The deregulation of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) norms has made the sector one of the fastest growing and the top five employment opportunity generator in the country.
The Indian telecom market is witnessing unprecedented growth in data consumption. In order to sustain this increase in data uptake and support the proliferation of next-generation technologies such as 5G, internet of things and artificial intelligence, there is a need to ramp up the telecom infrastructure in parallel. MoreÂover, the countryâ€™s communications infrastructure needs to be expanded in order to ensure the success of government programmers such as Digital India and the Smart Cities Mission. Both the central and state governments have launched a slew of schemes to create a conducive policy environment for encouraging investments in the telecom infrastr-ucture space. As part of the National Bro-adband Mission, the central government is working to provide broadband access to all villages by 2022. The government has also set a target of creating 10 million Wi-Fi hotspots by 2022, laying an incremental 3 million route km of optical fibre cable (OFC) and increasing the tower density from 0.42 tower per 1,000 of population to 1 tower per 1,000 of population by 2024. It is also working with the state governments to develop innovative implementation models for facilitating right-of-way (ROW) approvals for telecom towers and OFC.

Electronics is one of the fastest growing industries in the country. The total electronics market (which includes domestic electronics production and imports of electronic finished goods) in India is valued at Rs 9263 billion ($124 billion) in Fiscal 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.9% to reach Rs 17,902 billion ($240 billion) in Fiscal 2026. Domestic production accounted for approximately 69% of the total Indian electronics market in Fiscal 2022, valued at Rs 6,376 billion ($86 billion), and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.2% to reach Rs 15,159 billion ($203 billion) in Fiscal 2026, owing to various government initiatives to boost domestic electronics manufacturing industry. Also, the global landscape of electronic design and manufacturing is changing significantly, and revised cost structures have shifted the attention of multinational companies to India. At present, the Indian government is attempting to enhance manufacturing capabilities across multiple electronics sectors and to make the Indian electronics sector globally competitive. India is positioned as a destination for high-quality design work as well as a cost-competitive alternative.
The Indian LED lighting market has seen an increase due to population growth and subsequently rapid urbanization in the last decade. With a growing rate of electricity use, demand for an environmentally sustainable and cost-effective lighting solution is also gaining momentum. Thus, LED lighting has begun to dominate the general lighting market of India tremendously in recent years. The incandescent bulbs, halogens and CFL lights have dominated the lighting market for centuries now but over the last decade LED lights have become very popular in the Indian lighting industry. These LED lights were first introduced to the Indian market in 1993. Since the LED light bulbs have been invented, there has been a drastic change in the industries of lighting technology. Many have adopted the new LED lights over the traditional incandescent and fluorescent lights. This is because LEDs give more light, have lesser environmental impact and last longer as compared to incandescent bulbs. User-segments such as the government and commercial segments have been witnessing exponential growth. The street lighting segment is also expected to be the biggest application for the next few years. Lately, energy-efficiency initiatives are gaining momentum in India.
Pros and strengths
Poised to capture growth of LED market: With a proven operational and financial track record, the company is well-positioned to capitalize on opportunities provided by the tailwinds in the LED lighting market driven in part by governmental policies for energy saving and environment protection and importantly, the increasing awareness and adoption of LED lighting versus incandescent lighting. Further, LED lighting is central to reducing environmental impacts in both the residential, commercial and industrial sectors. Its comprehensive LED lighting offering allows it to offer its customers attractive manufacturing solutions for their products as well as its own product designs as part of its ODM business model. Its number of LED lighting products manufactured has grown by 41.82% from 660 in Fiscal 2020 to 936 in Fiscal 2022, and it is continuously expanding its portfolio.
Diverse product basket with focus on high-margin areas: The company offers its products in four segments: (i) LED lighting; (ii) refrigeration lights; (iii) ABS piping; and (iv) other product. This wide range of products helps it captures a larger wallet share of its customers. Its LED lighting offering focuses on the premium segment and includes lighting, fittings, fixtures, accessories, and components. It also provides lighting solutions (lights, drivers and controls) to commercial refrigeration equipment suppliers under its refrigeration lights segment. In addition, it manufactures ABS piping which is an alternative to PVC that is primarily used by its US customers for plumbing applications in the RVs that they fit out. The company currently manufactures more than 753 SKUs for its largest customer, Signify (Philips) in India. In addition, it is in negotiations with some of its existing customers to supply its LED home lighting products to their international supply chain.
Strong focus on R&D: The companyâ€™s R&D department focuses on product designing, tools and mould designing, electronic circuit designing and prototype designing. Its R&D department independently develops ODM designs and verifies and develops OEM designs received from customers and converts such designs into deliverable products by improving the designs, recommending suitable raw materials and testing of trial products. The R&D team also aims to provide solutions through automation to improve manufacturing efficiency on the existing products, reduce production costs and assists its customers by providing design and engineering support. It focuses on activities to support its customers including concept sketching, design refinement, generating optional features and testing. This enables it to address its consumersâ€™ diverse needs, introduce new and innovative products in the market, enhance existing products with emerging technologies, and optimize costs across its products through value analysis and value engineering.
Established infrastructure with backward integration: The company has developed the proficiency to produce many of the components used in its manufacturing processes with its in-house tool room capabilities that has modern machines, moulds and tools. Except for the diodes and resistors used in its LED lighting products, all mechanical components are manufactured by its. Its manufacturing infrastructure is a key driver of its business. It has four manufacturing facilities with one located in the SIDCUL Haridwar industrial park in Uttarakhand and three in Noida in the National Capital Region. Its manufacturing facilities are equipped with machinery and equipment like assembly lines, automatic surface-mounted machines, automatic metal cutting and shaping machines and automatic powder coating for fixtures. In line with its focus to provide end-to-end product solutions and to develop better control on its supply chain and improve its margins, it has backward integrated its major manufacturing processes. It has developed in-house capabilities so that it manufacture all mechanical components inhouse (save diodes and resistors).
Risks and concerns
Dependent on LED lighting product: The company is dependent on its LED lighting product category. While it has expanded its product lines to include ABS pipes, refrigerator lights and other products, it expects that in the future its LED lighting product category will continue to comprise a significant percentage of its operating revenue.
