Healthcare is looking to clock revenue of over Rs 1,000 crore in fiscal year
2022 as it expands the number of manufacturing facilities and also eyes
inorganic growth, a top company official has said. Trivitron Healthcare
currently has nine manufacturing facilities across five locations - Chennai,
Mumbai, Pune, Ankara and Helsinki -- and is in the process of constructing the
tenth facility in Patalganga in Maharashtra.
The company is expecting to close the current fiscal year
with a revenue of around Rs 700 crore.
"We are looking at a revenue of over Rs 1,000 crore for the
fiscal year 2022. It will be achieved through organic and inorganic growth,"
Trivitron Healthcare Chairman and MD GSK Velu told.
At present, 60 per cent of the company's revenue come from
India and 40 per cent is international, he added.
"Going forward, Africa is going to be one of the biggest
areas of growth for the company. We are also looking at both the US and China as
key markets for growth this year and plan to have some kind of manufacturing
presence in both the countries in the current calender year," he added.
Manufacturing presence in the US and China would strengthen
company's presence in the two of the most important markets globally, Velu said.
Mostly, it would be through joint ventures with existing
companies there, he said adding that the company already has a presence in these
markets through trading infrastructure.
At present the company is mainly in-vitro diagnostics,
imaging, intensive care, operation theatres and renal dialysis segments, he
"Out of these, in-vitro diagnostics and imaging contribute
more than 85 per cent of our total revenues currently," Velu said.
But going forward, the company is focusing on the areas like
radiation protection and newborn screening, he said and added that it is also
investing in research and development in mass spectrometry and radiation
"The company is focusing on manufacturing and at present
around 70 per cent of our revenues are coming from manufacturing," Velu said.
The company also has plans to list in FY23, but it would
depend on many factors, he said.
On being asked about the state of medical devices sector in
India, Velu said, as the sector is different from the pharma sector, it should
have separate regulator and separate department of medical devices to promote
