‘’We believe Astra Microwave Products is well placed to witness healthy growth led by strong sector tailwinds. Government's focus on indigenisation, increasing usage of electronics in defence and space, strong order backlog, healthy orders pipeline and execution of high-margin domestic orders would drive earnings in coming period,'' said ICICIdirect in its report.

The report added that the company is strongly placed to capture a bigger pie of the growing Indian defence sector with deep domain expertise and high focus on R&D. It expect ~ 8,000 crore orders opportunity for the company till 2028, primarily in defence and space electronics. ‘’Overall execution would also improve as the risk of supply chain issues recedes with increase in domestic procurement of raw materials and subcomponents,'' according to ICICIdirect.

The brokerage estimates Astra Microwave's revenue, EBITDA and profit after tax to grow at ~17 per cent, ~25 per cent and ~36 per cent CAGR respectively over FY23-26E. Astra Microwave Products is a leading designer and manufacturer of a wide array of radio frequency systems, microwave chips, and microwave-based components and subsystems for defence, telecom, and space.
