Power transmission business (granted through TBCB mode), power transmission and distribution (EPC), and the production of power transmission equipment like power conductors and cables all fall under the purview of Sterlite Power Transmission, an integrated participant in the sector. As a result, it continues to compete with several other companies in various categories.
1. The Power Transmission Business (TBCB mode)
- Sterlite Power (26%) competes with Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd. (33%), Adani Transmission Ltd. (19%), KEC International, and Techno Electric for TBCB-awarded power transmission business projects.
- Apar Industries and KEI are two rivals for its solutions (Products) business segment.
- Competitors of Sterlite Power in Brazil include Taesa S.A. and Companhia de Transmisso de Energia Elétrica Paulista.
2. Power Transmission Business (EPC)
- Sterlite Electricity competes with KEI industries, Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd, and KEC Cables in the EPC segment of power transmission and distribution (T&D) projects.
3. Indian Power Cable Segment
- Due to the presence of several unorganised operators, the power cable market is becoming more fragmented and commoditized, particularly in the low and medium voltage segments. Despite fierce industry competition, there are very few competitors in the extra high voltage (EHV) category since it requires more technological innovation than the low and medium voltage sectors. EHV cables up to 400 KV are offered by companies like KEI Industries Ltd. and Sterlite Power Transmission Ltd., while EHV cables up to 220 KV are offered by KEC International Ltd. and Universal Cables Ltd.
4. Indian Power Conductor Segment
- With only 3 competitors, Apar Industries Ltd (57%), Sterlite Power Transmission Ltd (21%) and Hindustan Urban Infrastructure Ltd (5%), the domestic market for power conductors is relatively less competitive and is expected to account for 80% of the market in fiscal 2020.
- While Sterlite Power Transmission Limited is the only conductor producer among these three significant firms to own and manage a transmission network in India, Apar Industries is the market leader with the most varied array of conductors for various uses.

Sterlite Power Transmission Ltd is waiting for market conditions to turn favourable before it launches a planned initial public offering (IPO) worth ₹1,250 crore.
Pratik Agarwal, managing director, said the timing of the share sale would depend upon market demand and valuation along with other fundraising options available to the company at the time.
“It purely depends on the market; it’s not for us to decide on our own. This is business that needs capital, so whatever is the best solution on the table, we will take that,” Agarwal said in an interview.
Sterlite Power had applied for the IPO in August last year (2021) and received market regulator SEBI’s approval in December (2021). However, it has yet to launch the share sale, given the weak market conditions caused by geopolitical tensions and slowdown concerns. The SEBI approval will be valid for 12 months.
