Investing in Reliance Industries


Capturing the O2C market in India:

  • The O2C division of RIL now encompasses the company’s refining and petrochemical operations. Being the biggest integrated polyester producer worldwide, it is also one of the leading petrochemical producers on a global scale.
  • In Q4 FY24, despite a difficult margin environment, O2C EBITDA improved slightly thanks to improved feedstock procurement and robust domestic demand. Revenue in this segment grew to ₹142,634 crore from ₹141,096 crore in the last quarter.
  • Among the top five worldwide manufacturers of polypropylene and purified terephthalic acid (PTA), RIL ranks third in paraxylene production.
  • At full capacity, RIL’s petrochemical factories can take advantage of economies of scale thanks to the company’s dominant market position.

Solid foothold in the retail sector:

  • A gain of 17.8% over the previous year, the company’s gross revenue for FY24 was ₹3,06,786 crore.
  • When it comes to sales, scale, and profitability, no Indian retailer can compare to Reliance Retail Ventures Limited (RRVL). With record-breaking foot traffic of over one billion, there was a 17.8%  year-over-year increase in revenue in FY24. 
  • In addition to tier-1 and tier-2 cities, RRVL has an extensive network of 18,650 retailers, as of November 2023. With robust growth throughout all consumption baskets, RRVL added 15.6 million square feet to its gross area in FY24.

Long-term success in the telecom industry:

  • According to its Q4 FY24 quarterly report, Jio Platforms Limited (JPL) has demonstrated outstanding financial performance and growth in the telecom sector. The company’s revenue soared to ₹33,835 crore, marking a 13.3% increase year-over-year. 
  • The widespread adoption of 5G technology and the scaling up of home connectivity solutions have propelled data traffic to approximately 148 exabytes for the fiscal year, a 31% increase year-over-year. JPL is at the forefront of India’s transition to 5G, now boasting over 108 million subscribers and accounting for roughly 28% of Jio’s wireless data traffic. 
  • This makes JPL the operator with the largest 5G subscriber base outside China. Additionally, the JioAirFiber service is experiencing robust demand across approximately 5,900 towns, leading to the highest-ever quarterly home connections.


Telecom regulation and technology risks:

  • When policies and regulations change, it affects the telecom industry in India.
  • Constant investment is required due to vulnerability to technological advances.
  • The expansion of 5G services by RJIL might lead to an increase in capital expenditure.

Intense retail competition:

  • In addition to competing with other organised merchants, RRVL also has difficulties in the unorganised sector.
  • Within India, organised retail penetration is less than 15%.
