Dixon Technologies’s MD Atul Lall told BloombergQuint that “India will emerge as an electronic manufacturing hub, servicing not only in the domestic market but also in certain categories globally.” He added that the consumer durables industry was likely to witness a lot of pent-up demand, due to the virus-induced lockdown, especially for brands with an online presence.”

Strong customers addition helped in tough times

Dixon has regularly been acquiring new clients during the crisis. Fueled by PM Modi’s ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’ many companies are now looking to manufacture products in India, few of the new clients include Voltas Beko and Reliance Digital’s private label brands such as Kelvinator.

“A key advantage for Dixon is its diversification across customers, products and product fungibility, which makes manufacturing flexible. When it is not making security systems, it can use that line to make set-top boxes or medical kits. Similarly, its largest OEM in TVs has a strong online sales model, which has helped inventory even during the lockdown,” said a Dolat Capital report dated June 11.

Production-linked incentive scheme for Dixon

Dixon is expected to be largely benefitted by the government’s production-linked incentive scheme for mobile manufacturing. The scheme offers incentives to boost domestic manufacturing of mobiles.

As per government norms sub $200 phones, which is 70% of the Indian market, can only be done by domestic companies, and this puts Dixon in a sweet spot.
