Automobile Industry in India
Last Updated: April 2013 Introduction The Indian automotive industry has emerged as a 'sunrise sector' in the Indian economy. India is emerging as one of the world's fastest growing passenger car markets and second largest two wheeler manufacturer. It is also home for the largest motor cycle manufacturer and fifth largest commercial vehicle manufacturer. India is emerging as an export hub for sports utility vehicles (SUVs). The global automobile majors are looking to leverage India's cost-competitive manufacturing practices and are assessing opportunities to export SUVs to Europe, South Africa and Southeast Asia. India can emerge as a supply hub to feed the world demand for SUVs. India also has the largest base to export compact cars to Europe. Moreover, hybrid and electronic vehicles are new developments on the automobile canvas and India is one of the key markets for them. Global and Indian manufacturers are focussing their efforts to develop innovative products, technologies and supply chains. The automotive plants of global automakers in India rank among the top across the world in terms of their productivity and quality. Top auto multinational companies (MNCs) like Hyundai, Toyota and Suzuki rank their Indian production facilities right on top of their global pecking order. Key Statistics The amount of cumulative foreign direct investment (FDI) inflow into the automobile industry during April 2000 to January 2013 was worth US$ 7,653 million, amounting to 4 per cent of the total FDI inflows (in terms of US$), as per data published by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce. The Indian small and light commercial vehicle segment is expected to more than double by 2015-16 and grow at 18.5 per cent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the next five years, according to a report titled, 'Strategic Assessment of Small and Light Commercial Vehicles Market in India' by Frost & Sullivan. The light commercial vehicles (LCV) market - both passenger and goods carrier is estimated to register a sales growth of around 20 per cent during FY 2012-FY 2015, as per a RNCOS report titled, "India LCV Market Outlook". India is the world's second-largest heavy commercial vehicle market. The RNCOS report, "India MCV and HCV Market Outlook", observed that infrastructure boom and emergence of hub and spoke model, among other factors have given a new dimension to the medium and heavy goods carrier commercial vehicles' sector in India. It is anticipated that the sales of medium and heavy commercial (M&HC) goods carriers will increase at a CAGR of more than 10.5 per cent during 2011-12 to 2014-15.
