Automotive Industry in India

The automotive industry in India is one of the largest automotive markets in the world. It was previously one of the fastest growing markets globally. The automobile industry accounts for 22 per cent of the country's manufacturing gross domestic product (GDP). The auto sector is one of the biggest job creators, both directly and indirectly. It is estimated that every job created in an auto company leads to three to five indirect ancillary jobs.

According to a report published by Deloitte, India is expected to become a major automobile manufacturing hub and the third largest market for automobiles by 2020. If we talk about the current figures, India is the seventh-largest automobiles producer in the world with an average annual production of 17.5 million vehicles, and is on way to become the fourth largest automotive market by volume, by 2015.

This industry is going to flourish in the future and as long as it does, there will always be availability of jobs in this sector, for the Die Designers and other professionals too.
