KEI Industries Limited My Opinion
KEI Industries Limited is a Electricals Company. It is exclusively in business of Cable manufacturing. This is core business of the Company. The wide range of products it has to offer makes it one stop shop for anything related to Cables. It has also some esteemed names from different industries in its Client list.
Wires are everywhere if we look around us. In our home out on street everywhere we go we are accompanied with wires in one form or other. Wires are the carriers of modern civilization. Now you need to understand how much growth potential is present in this sector.
This sector also has challenges in form of Wireless. The household need of wires depends on new construction. Wires have long life so one time wiring is enough for most of the cases be it housing or industrial.
India will have stable demand for these products but for growth Company will also have to look beyond India like in Africa Continent and other similar areas which still require Electrification. It does have good presence in Africa and we need to see how much growth potential is left in those areas. This is a interesting company to keep track on.
