Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the Indian Utilities sector?

Electric Utilities0.87%
Gas Utilities-2.52%
Renewable Energy-2.59%
Water Utilities-3.57%

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Renewable Energy industry which is trading above its 3-year average PE ratio of 9.5x. However analysts expect its future annual earnings growth (29%) to be largely in line with prior year's earnings growth, so the market might believe analysts are underestimating its future growth since investors are willing to pay a bigger premium today. Meanwhile, investors are most pessimistic about the Water Utilities industry. Although, investor sentiment seems to have improved given its trading above its 3-year average of 13.5x.

Forecasted Growth: Analysts are most optimistic on the Water Utilities industry, expecting annual earnings growth of 30% over the next 5 years. However this is lower than its past earnings growth rate of 56% per year. Meanwhile, the Electric Utilities industry is expected to see its earnings grow by 12% per year over the next few years.
