India which was ranked 16th globally in 2001 will be the 3rd biggest market leaving behind Germany in 2017 and Japan in 2020. According to IHS Automotive forecast.

Similarly in Production India is expected to jump from current 6th ranking to 4th, trailing just behind US, China and Japan.

In last 15 years, we have seen entry of numerous global automotive players in India. In 2000, only 16 car manufacturers were present in India and we will expect by 2020 around 55 car manufacturers to compete for business in India, and similarly in production front, around 39 manufacturers will be making cars in India by 2020 serving both domestic and exports market.

India automotive industry is going through the transformation phase. Political stability, new regulations, increasing competition and rising consumer expectations will shape the way auto manufacturers or suppliers do their business in India.

The long-term outlook remains positive for strong fundamental reasons such as high GDP growth, adequate financing availability, higher per capita GDP, decreasing unemployment, increasing disposable incomes, favorable demographics, and rising consumer expectations. The new government’s efforts to implement a GST, build smart cities, and revive key sectors such as mining and infrastructure should boost job creation. Other key factors for substantial growth are higher spending on infrastructure and the government’s focus on rural areas. India’s young population, coupled with low vehicle penetration levels, is expected to steer the Indian automotive industry for the future. For the long term, we maintain our forecast for the seven-year compound annual growth rate at more than 8% for the Indian market.
