gem worth investing - TITAN INDUSTRIES


Titan's focus on branded products, and its strategy of capturing less penetrated market segments and catering to every income group will help it reap rich fruits.

The company is a market leader in the organised watch segment with a 40 per cent share with brands like Titan, Sonata and Fast Track. It braced up its branded jewellery business and today, its Tanishq brand enjoys a strong recall in the organised market.

Organised jewellery retailing business has a meagre share of 3-4 per cent, but with a growth of 25-30 per cent, it is expected to gain higher share, thus benefiting Titan. Further, it has rightly identified new markets with strong growth potential.

It has also entered the $450 million Indian eyewear market with its Fast Track brand and precision engineering equipment business catering to automobile, medical and aerospace industry (global size of $35 billion). It has also ventured into the Rs 2,500-3,000 crore Indian prescription eyewear business under the brand Titan Eye+.

All these indicate that Titan is set to report high revenue growth driven by its branded jewellery business and supported by new segments.

Although profitability will trail sales growth due to lower margins in the jewellery business, it is still expected to be substantial. Moreover, periodic introduction of brands and ability to identify new segments boosts confidence about the company's prospects.
