Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) January 15, 2009 -- The automotive sector in India contributes to 5% of the nationâs GDP and 17% of the indirect taxes as a result of which the government last year
charted a 10-year blueprint for the sectorâs growth. This envisages the automotive sector âoutput reaching a level of $145 billion accounting for
more than 10% of the GDPâ by 2016.
However, Indiaâs auto industry is maturing not only in quantitative terms. Indigenous vehicle and component makers are investing in research and
development, engineering and design capabilities. Some of them have developed their own vehicles such as Mahindra & Mahindra with its Scorpio and
Tata Motors with its Indica and now the Nano, the cheapest car in the world with a tag of $2,500.
Companies are now looking beyond the domestic market by boosting their overseas sales and buying foreign companies whether for technology,
customer base or physical assets. Some, such as Bharat Forge and Tata Motors Ltd â when Land Rover and Jaguar will be integrated â derive about
half their total revenues from foreign markets.
