Tamilnad Mercantile Bank Industry Overview
Traditionally, public banks have accounted for the major proportion of the banking credit outstanding. However, low profitability, weak capital position, low operational efficiency, and an increase in stressed loans in the past few years led to a slowdown in their loan growth. As a result, public banks gradually lost market share to private banks, which were relatively well-capitalized and had a higher degree of operational efficiency. Public banks which accounted for 71% share in credit outstanding in Fiscal 2015, account for only 59% share in Fiscal 2021. While credit growth picked up significantly in Fiscal 2019 for public banks, private banks also witnessed minor improvement in growth.
A partial economic slowdown resulted in lower credit growth in Fiscal 2020 for both public and private banks. In Fiscal 2021, public banks’ growth slowed to 3%, while private banks were able to grow 9% due to better capital buffers. Therefore, the latter was able to gain further market share. As merged banks focus on integration and banks placed under corrective action come out of the PCA framework, the credit growth of public banks is expected to lag that of private banks in the medium term. Public banks are expected to grow by 6-8% in Fiscal 2022, whereas private banks are expected to grow by 9-11%.
