Company Report

We Project Harmonic Drive's Sales to Recover in Fiscal 2024 After Macro Headwinds

Harmonic Drive Systems has been able to capitalize on demand growth with industrial robots and semiconductor production equipment, by having its compact strain wave reduction gears (also known as speed reducers) serve as core components of both. The company seeks to continue improving its product quality toward existing applications as well as to find new applications that can serve as new long-term growth drivers. We think small industrial robots and semiconductor equipment will continue to serve as key target markets, as miniaturization of equipment will require small gears with high precision and durability.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Dominant market share and high barriers to entry in the high-end strain wave reduction gear market puts HDS in a strong position to grow along with the overall small-size industrial robot market.

Bears

Exposure to cyclical industries makes the company’s revenue and profits particularly sensitive to macroeconomic conditions during downcycles.
