Ambitious growth Targets
- Motherson Sumi reiterated Vision 2025 with an ambitious target of $36 Billion Consolidated Revenue (at 29% CAGR in FY20-25) while their FY20 revenues stand at $8.9 Billion.

- Motherson Sumi has an average ROCE (FY16-20) of 17%. They are optimistic and have set a target ROCE of 40% by FY25. Despite the multifarious acquisitions, they have been triumphant in concocting synergy and coherence among their various subsidiaries.
- The company aims to derive 25% of revenues from Non-Auto business through diversification into industries like aerospace, medical, It and logistics.
- In light of this they consequently they plan to execute – 3C x 10 Diversification Strategy. It entails that no country, consumer or component should contribute to more than 10% of revenue. This will ensure optimum diversification as well as avoid concentration and dependence of revenue on a particular domain.
Revenue – Targets vs Achieved
- When we look back retrospect, we discern that the company has comfortable achieved and exceed its revenue targets for 2010 and 2015. However, the company couldn’t continue this streak and failed to meet the $18 Billion target set for 2020 by $9.1 Billion.
- In order to achieve the high and aspiring revenue target set for 2025, Motherson will have to deliver a 22% CAGR in revenues.
- The company plans to bring in auto revenues to the tune of $27 Billion i.e. 75% of revenues. This can happen either through the organic growth of their existing business or inorganic growth by acquiring other companies.
- The key drivers for auto revenue Growth at 22% CAGR in FY20-25 are as follows –
- The company aims to generate non-auto revenues to the tune of $9 Billion i.e. 25% of revenues by diversifying into 4 segments namely Aerospace, Medical, IT and Logistics.
- The key focus area in aerospace include aero-structure, landing & engine parts, wiring harnesses and cabin parts. The company is going to start a new aerospace facility in April 2021 and is evaluating potential acquisitions.
- Under Medical, Motherson Sumi plans to launch point-of-care technologies, grow contract manufacturing and inorganically build large global tech platform.
- Currently, company earns less than $1 billion revenue from these four segments. Thus to meet its target of $9 billion revenue from these segments, company needs to increase its revenue by 9 times.
- Such an ambitious target is plausible mainly from inorganic acquisitions.
Revenue Mix – Target vs Achieved
- Motherson Sumi has consistently outperformed the set targets with respect to sales from customers outside India and largest customer turnover as a % of sales, while simultaneous raising the bar for every consequent target.
- Though the company has missed out on reaching their dividend payout target in 2010, 2015 and 2020. Their payout target for FY25 is 40%, the same as they were for 2020.
