In March 2019, L&T Technology Services Limited (NSE:LTTS) released its latest earnings announcement, which suggested that the business experienced a sizeable tailwind, eventuating to a high double-digit earnings growth of 51%. Below, I've laid out key growth figures on how market analysts view L&T Technology Services's earnings growth trajectory over the next few years and whether the future looks even brighter than the past. Note that I will be looking at net income excluding extraordinary items to get a better understanding of the underlying drivers of earnings.

Market analysts' consensus outlook for this coming year seems rather subdued, with earnings expanding by a single digit 7.2%. The growth outlook in the following year seems much more positive with rates reaching double digit 23% compared to today's earnings, and finally hitting ₹10b by 2022.

While it is useful to be aware of the growth year by year relative to today's level, it may be more valuable gauging the rate at which the earnings are moving on average every year. The pro of this approach is that it removes the impact of near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of L&T Technology Services's earnings trajectory over time, which may be more relevant for long term investors. To compute this rate, I've inserted a line of best fit through the forecasted earnings by market analysts. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is 10%. This means, we can assume L&T Technology Services will grow its earnings by 10% every year for the next couple of years.
