Corporate Profit Ratio to India’s GDP – Cycle Growth Analysis: Motilal Oswal

The special research section of BQ Prime collects quality and in-depth capital and economic research reports from the best brokerage firms, asset managers and research agencies in India. These reports offer BQ Prime subscribers the opportunity to broaden their understanding of companies, sectors and the economy.

India’s corporate profit (listed plus unlisted) to gross domestic product ratio fell to 2.2% from 7.8% in 2008-2020. For Nifty-500 Universe, the ratio fell to 2.2% from 5.1% at the lowest level of two decades for the same period.

It should be noted that in 2022, the corporate-to-GDP ratio is recovering to a decade-high of 4.3% and 4.5% for Nifty-500 Universe and Leaf India Inc. respectively. The recovery is due to the expansion of the economy, as the denominator, ie. GDP grew by 19.5% year on year in 2022 after a contraction in 2021 (due to a blockade caused by Covid-19), while corporate profits grew at a faster rate of 48% on an annual basis (for the universe Nifty-500).

However, profit growth has hardly been large-scale, driven by only three sectors: banking, financial services and insurance, oil and gas and metals. More than half of the growing growth is driven by the BFSI, supported by a moderate revival of credit growth and improved asset quality trends.

In this report, we analyze “corporate profits as a percentage of GDP” in more detail.
