Indian Automobile Sector - A Booming Market

Delhi, India (PressExposure) April 17, 2009 -- De-licensing in 1991 has put the Indian automobile industry on a new growth track, attracting foreign auto giants to set up their production facilities in the country to take advantage of various benefits it offers. This took the Indian automobile production from 5.3 Million Units in 2001-02 to 10.8 Million Units in 2007-08. The other reasons attracting global auto manufacturers to India are the country’s large middle class population, growing earning power, strong technological capability and availability of trained manpower at competitive prices. These are the major findings of our new report, "Indian Automobile Sector - A Booming Market”

In 2006-07, the Indian automotive industry provided direct employment to more than 300,000 people, exported auto component worth around US$ 2.87 Billion, and contributed 5% to the GDP. Due to this large contribution of the industry in the national economy, the Indian government lifted the requirement of forging joint ventures for foreign companies, which attracted global to the Indian market to establish their plants, resulting in heightened automobile production.

The Indian automobile market is currently dominated by two-wheeler segment but in future, the demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles will increase with industrial development. Also, as India has low vehicle presence (with passenger car stock of only around 11 per 1,000 population in 2008), it possesses substantial potential for growth.
