The retail unit of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) could be the next engine of growth for the oil-to-telecom conglomerate, according to global brokerage and research firm Goldman Sachs. In a report this week, analysts at Goldman Sachs said that the retail EBITDA could grow 10x over the next 10 years. “During the macro downturn, RIL has focused on building strong digital capabilities and we believe the scale-up in omnichannel offering is driving sizeable market share wins. We see a six-fold increase in grocery organized retail penetration in India by FY30, coupled with 15% market share gain for RIL,” the report added. Mukesh Ambani’s RIL currently holds a 41.5% market share in organised retail space.
