In a recent note, analysts at Jefferies highlighted that the stocks of defense companies are experiencing a notable uptrend, propelled by heightened geopolitical tensions and India’s sustained emphasis on self-reliance, which are bolstering order flows and driving a surge in revenue.

Jefferies has commenced coverage on Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) and Data Patterns with a ‘buy’ recommendation, while maintaining the same rating for Bharat Electronics (BEL). The brokerage suggests that in the defense sector, the government’s efforts to strengthen bilateral relations to boost exports are further enhancing the industry’s prospects. Moreover, the doubling of domestic defense spending from FY2024 to FY2030 is anticipated to sustain the upward trajectory of stocks. Jefferies predicts that India’s capital defense expenditure will maintain a 7-8 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR), while a focus on indigenization will drive double-digit growth in domestic defense spending.

Furthermore, the report identifies exports as a significant area of opportunity for the segment. It estimates that defense exports could grow by an average of 21 percent in FY23-30, reaching $7 billion by FY30 from $3 billion in FY24. The brokerage foresees export opportunities emerging from countries such as the UAE, Bhutan, Ethiopia, Italy, and Egypt, aligning with the government’s target of achieving $6 billion in defense exports by FY2029.

In terms of individual companies, Jefferies projects robust growth prospects for Data Patterns, estimating a nearly fivefold increase in revenues from FY24 to FY2030. This growth is expected to be driven by heightened focus on indigenization and a strong export pipeline. BEL, with its zero debt and comfortable working capital position, is well-positioned to capitalize on growth opportunities in the sector. For HAL, the recent collaborations signal potential advancements in its Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) status among global defense companies. Additionally, HAL’s revenue structure, with a significant portion linked to service income from past product sales, is expected to benefit from the government’s push for domestic aircraft manufacturing.
