Parth Shah, a research analyst at StoxBox, believes the issue is fairly valued, and investors can subscribe to it for the medium to long term.

"On the financial front, the issue seems to be fairly valued. Hence, we advise the market participants to subscribe to the issue for a medium to long-term period," said Shah.

Shah pointed out that Bansal Wire Industries boasts strong customer diversification to de-risk impact on revenue and a diversified product portfolio serving different sectors with different needs effectively.

Shah believes the country's economic growth will benefit steel manufacturers, as the increase in steel consumption across the infrastructure, automobile, and housing sectors can be seen domestically.

Shah observed that to follow up with the growing trends, the company plans to set up a new manufacturing unit, the largest steel wire manufacturing plant in India. It also aims to expand its reach to other regions, i.e. south and east to garner additional market share.

Amit Goel, co-founder and chief global strategist at Pace 360, pointed out that the company is operating in a highly competitive and fragmented segment of metal wires.

The IPO is valued fairly as compared to its listed peers in India. We recommend subscribing to this IPO for listing gains," Master Capital said.

Brokerage firm Anand Rathi recommends subscribing to the issue for the long term.

Pointing out the company's valuation, Anand Rathi said that the company's P/E ratio is 50.8 times based on its FY24 earnings, with a market capitalisation of 40,078.3 million after the issuance of equity shares and a market cap to sales ratio of 1.62 times its FY24 earnings.
