(K) Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths

(i) Leading position in domestic market

Triveni Turbine Ltd holds a dominant position of around 60% market share in the sub-30 MW domestic steam turbines market, aided by a healthy pipeline of orders and strong research, development and engineering capabilities. Further, with the recent revival of capex cycle in various end-user industries, including captive power plants and waste heat recovery systems, renewable power solutions, sugar, process co-generation and waste-to-energy systems, TTL witnessed a strong order inflows.

(ii) Geographically diverse presence across various end user markets with healthy current order book position

Triveni Turbine Ltd steam turbines are used in diverse industries, ranging from sugar, steel, cement, textiles and chemicals to pulp and paper, fertilizers, distillery, Waste-to-energy, Biogas, palm oil as well as food processing. Meanwhile the company’s presence in South Asia, the Middle East and some African markets has been relatively long. In the last few years, it has expanded its presence across markets like Europe and South America.

(iii) Focus on exports and refurbishing markets supports profitability

Triveni Turbine Ltd operating profits are supported by a healthy proportion of after-market sales (where the company sells spares and servicing for its own, other turbines and other rotating equipment) and exports, wherein contributions are higher than the domestic product segment.

Weaknesses

(i) Order booking and revenues sensitive to capex cycle in end-user industry

While the capex cycle in both domestic and export markets has revived recently, TTL’s order booking and, hence revenues remain vulnerable to the capex cycle in the end-user industries. However, diversification across geographies and end-users mitigates this risk to an extent.

(ii) Intense competition

TTL competes with large players that benefit from operational, technical and financial support from global parent companies. However, the company too has been able to compete with the bigger players and gain market share globally. In addition, it has continued to maintain its dominant presence through experienced engineering and manufacturing capabilities, good coverage of after-sales services and faster turnaround to its customers.
