Below are few key observations of the issue:
* The domestic precision engineering industry’s turnover is estimated at Rs. 4,098bn in FY20, clocking a 7.1% CAGR between FY16-20. On the back of supportive government policies for manufacturing & engineering sectors, growth in the industrials and rise in penetration of high technology machinery for manufacturing, precision engineering is expected to log a growth of 6-7% CAGR over FY20-25 to reach a turnover of Rs. 5,550-6,550bn by FY25.
* The engineering manufacturing industry is very fragmented, but established players with developed technological expertise create entry barriers for new players, especially in precision engineering sectors such as defence, aerospace nuclear, space and aviation.
* MTAR, which supplies to companies such as Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd., Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd., Advance System Laboratory (DRDO), Godrej and Boyce, ISRO and Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL); is engaged in the manufacturing and assembly of critical precision components with close tolerances of 5-10 microns through their competencies in precision machining, assembly, testing, quality control, and specialized fabrication.
