Strong start to FY25

Serving various industries such as steel, cement, cold chains, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, railways, defence, and marine, KPCL holds a significant presence in the oil & gas sector, particularly in the CNG business in India.

This 28% surge in orders at the beginning of the fiscal year highlights robust market demand and reaffirms the company's strong positioning at the onset of FY25, the company said in its earnings report. 

The compression business remains the primary revenue driver for the company, constituting approximately 93% of the company's total revenue and serving as the sole reporting segment.

Strong positioning 

Analysts highlight the company's potential to benefit from increased investments in the nation's CNG infrastructure. Aligned with the Government of India's objective to elevate natural gas's contribution to the energy mix from 6.3% to 15% by 2030, the PNGRB has set an ambitious target of 17,700 CNG stations by 2030, a significant rise from the current 5,665 stations.

With oil marketing companies (OMCs) expected to spearhead the construction of CGD infrastructure, the company stands in a strong position to bolster its market presence in the expanding CNG compressor market, analysts suggest.
