Indian Automotive Industry- The sector that is creating waves globally !

8

Indian Auto Industry was nothing to write about just a few years back. However, there has been tremendous growth and positive change in Indian Auto sector. So much so that India is rapidly becoming a large player in exporting of 2, 3 and 4 wheelers across the globe. The Auto Industry export is rising at more than 50% year on year. I would not be surprised if few years down the line, Tata Motors name is taken along side giants like Toyota and Honda. what with Tata motors already (approx 1 lac) car. If Tata is successful, which very much looks a possibility now, it will have most of the countries across the globe running behind asking for more. Just imagine the size of the market, if consumer is able to buy a nice car at $2500.

Just to give you a perspective of how Indian Auto Industry has performed in last couple of years, here are some facts:

At present there are 15 manufacturers of passenger cars, 9 manufacturers of commercial vehicles, 14 of 2/3 wheelers and 14 of tractors besides 5 manufacturers of engines. The industry has an investment of more than Rs.50,000 crore in 2002-03 which is slated to go up to Rs. 80,000 crore by this year end. The Indian automotive industry has already attained a turnover of Rs.1,65,000 crore ($34 billion USD). The contribution of the automotive industry to GDP has risen from 2.77% in 1992- 93 to 5% in 2005-06. The auto companies have a manufacturing capacity of over 95 vehicles per annum.

India is the world’s second largest manufacturer of two wheelers, fifth largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles,manufactures largest number of tractors in the world and is the fourth largest passenger car market in Asia.

One of the reasons of growth in this Industry is also because of friendly policies laid down by government of India. At present 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is permissible in this sector including passenger car segment. In last three years alone, 14 car manufacturers have setup their shops in India.

Here is the Vision statement for Indian Automotive sector by Indian government.

To emerge as the destination of choice in the world for design and manufacture of automobiles and auto components with output reaching a level of US$ 145 billion accounting for more than 10% of the GDP and providing additional employment to 25 million people by 2016.

Here is the complete Automotive Mission Plan 2006 – 2016.

    I will be glad to receive a list of manufacturers in the fact above.

  6. Dr Vasant Khisty says

    Indian Auto Industry has not been able to indeginiously design a world class car or a truck on its own. As far as engineering goes India is at the lower end of the value chain. India has made great strides in manufacturing of components to a drawing. India also has made great strides in implementing manufacturing systems and improving logisitic management, but a long long way to go in engineering a world class product.
