Sensex Today Live : Elara Securities India says competition escalating for IndiGo airlines; gives outlook

Sensex Today Live : INDIGO’s competitors turn aggressive on fleet addition.

Between September 2023 and January 2024, InterGlobe Aviation lost domestic market share from the peak of 63.4% to 60.2%, which mirrored the strong fleet addition by competitors at 26 narrow body aircraft (20 by Air India, three by Vistara and three by Akasa), versus 12 by INDIGO.

P&W engine issues to hit fleet near term

Expect domestic-demand-supply to be mostly balanced in H1FY25, post which domestic market may witness oversupply in H2.

Easing capacity constraints in key metros in FY26 to be the key to drive future demand

Despite near-term hiccups, long-term aviation story intact

Expect FY23-28E domestic passenger traffic CAGR at ~12-15%, driven by: government focus on improving air connectivity beyond tier 1 /2 cities, large order book of domestic carriers (1,606 outstanding order book as on December 2023) – ~350 net deliveries are expected in the next five years (~600 new deliveries less ~175 old fleet retirals) and higher capacity at existing key metro airports.

Retain Reduce on INDIGO

We retain Reduce, given the anticipated pause in market share growth and potential margin decline in H2FY25 with TP at INR 3,005 based on 8.0x FY26E EV/EBITDA. We expect a 19% passenger volume CAGR in FY23-26E.
