Outlook for Samvat 2080

Experts are positive about the domestic market for Samvat 2080 owing to India's robust macroeconomic outlook.

Pranav Haridasan, MD & CEO of Axis Securities pointed out that the Indian economy currently finds itself in a sweet spot of growth and is well-poised for continued resilience in the face of global challenges.

Haridasan believes Samvat 2080 will be quite a fascinating year to watch out for the global economy.

"We embark on this new Samvat with a narrative marked by ‘higher for longer’ interest rates, volatile bond yields, geopolitical conflicts in West Asia, and fluctuating oil prices. However, on the domestic front, the prospects for the Indian economy appear notably brighter and more promising," said Haridasan.

"Amid a volatile global landscape, India remains in a favourable position for growth, which will be a significant driving force behind Indian equities in the foreseeable future. The improvement in the balance sheet strength of corporate India and the much-improved health of the Indian banking system are other positive attributes. They will ensure that Indian equities readily deliver double-digit returns in the next two to three years with the support of double-digit earnings growth," Haridasan said.

Sunil Shah, director at Kambatta Securities said Indian equities may outperform most other global markets in the face of continued geopolitical uncertainties and relatively higher domestic economic growth.

Shah said the major themes will be domestic consumption and premiumisation, enabling companies to post strong earnings growth aided by margin accretion.

Infra and construction plays are expected to do well, according to Shah, as the government’s thrust on infrastructure development may continue, while higher budgetary allocation in rural-focus schemes can help drive a recovery in rural consumption, especially with the upcoming budget being the last one before the General Elections.

Shah believes despite rich valuations in the small- and mid-cap segments, companies with fundamentally strong businesses and good earnings growth continue to justify their valuation.

If US bond yields start coming down by the second half of the calendar year 2024, FPIs will come back to the party. Upcoming state and General Elections can make the market move sideways. Inflation, interest rate trajectory, and geopolitical tensions will remain the key risks, said Shah.
