Capital Goods and Manufacturing Industry in India

The capital goods and manufacturing industry in India is a strong, resilient and vibrant manufacturing sector. A robust manufacturing sector is an essential element of the Indian growth story. It is particularly important in ensuring employment for a large and growing working age population. Manufacturing, currently at 15% of GDP, needs to grow at a rate that is 2-3% higher than GDP, in order to make a significant contribution to our economy and towards employment generation.

In 2011-12 the size of the capital goods industry was estimated to be 500,000 crore, the domestic demand was valued at 2,35,000 crore and the exports were valued at 2,65,000 crore.

The government of India has announced a national manufacturing policy with the objective of enhancing the share of manufacturing in GDP by 25% within a decade thereby creating 100 million jobs. It seeks to empower rural youth by imparting all the necessary skills set to make them employed. So, entrepreneurial ventures like Working Proprietor, Manufacturing will be profitable in the future.
