Strong order inflows from a variety of industries, including refineries, steel, electricity, and chemicals, drove the success. Thermax has seen an increase in the demand for green products from the paper and pulp industry as well as from sugar and distilleries.

One of the few businesses in the world that provide comprehensive, creative solutions for heating, cooling, electricity, water and waste management, air pollution control, and chemicals is Thermax, a leading provider of energy and environmental solutions. Thermax has production sites in Southeast Asia, Europe, and India.

The management thinks the firm is still stronger than ever, despite short-term obstacles. Three important aspects contribute to the strength: the booming Indian economy, the rising demand for green energy, and the company's intense focus on innovation and product development.

New technologies are being implemented as the energy revolution picks up steam, creating a wealth of opportunities for Thermax to lead this change. The company has a sizable order pipeline for waste heat recovery for the steel and cement sectors in addition to orders for flue gas desulphurization (FGDs), waste to energy, and build-own-operate-based solutions.

The growing emphasis on energy efficiency and lowering carbon footprints among clients has been advantageous for Thermax. "In addition to growing its product line, the company is investing in clean, green technologies. Waste to energy, waste heat recovery and renewable energy solutions offered by the Business is perfectly adapted to the domestic and worldwide transition in energy toward renewables "In its annual report for FY22, the company stated.
