Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) next leg of growth will come from India
When it comes to tech giants like Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL), there’s a lot of concern among stock investors about where their growth is going to come from. After all, if you look at GOOG specifically, the company already controls more than 90% of the global digital search market, more than 60% of the global browser market and about 30% of the e-mail market.
Plus, the company’s core digital ad growth rates are slowing, the cloud can’t grow rapidly forever, its other new hardware products like Google Home have been only minor successes, and its autonomous driving unit, Waymo, won’t meaningfully improve its financial results for awhile.
So it seems like there are more than a few reasons to be bearish on GOOG stock, and owners of Alphabet stock could be worried about the company’s outlook. But this perspective is too narrow. Importantly, it ignores the biggest long-term growth catalyst for Alphabet stock: India.
India is a big country. The second largest country in the world, it has 1.3 billion people. To put that number in perspective, the U.S. has just 340 million people. The world has just 7.7 billion people. Thus, India is nearly four times as large as America, and it has over 15% of the world’s population.
Here’s the kicker: a majority of Indians still aren’t on the internet. India’s internet penetration rate is below 40%, versus 90% in the U.S. and Canada, 85% throughout Europe, and nearly 60% in still- developing China.
Over the next decade, India will rapidly urbanize and digitize. As it does so, India’s internet penetration rates will continually increase, eventually exceeding 70%. As a result, hundreds of millions of the country’s citizens will come online. A significant portion of those people will use Google’s suite of internet services, like search, Gmail, and Chrome.
So Alphabet’s next leg of growth will come from India. This leg of growth will be huge, and it will provide a strong, positive catalyst for GOOG stock. Consequently, the exponential growth of the Indian internet market that will occur over the next decade is a good reason to own GOOG stock over the long-term.
