The industry transformed gradually in stages, from serving just the Indian market ? majority to replacement market - to global OEMs and replacement market. The Auto Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA) has significance for global recognition and has an impact on the GDP. It has a supporting role in the growth of Indian automobile sector and in the future as per the Automotive Plan 2006-16, Vision 2020:21 and the automotive sector five year plan (2012 ? 17), as projected by the Department of Heavy Industry, Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises. The growth of this subsector has a bearing on the developments and growth of the Indian automobile industry, rather it is dependent on the automobile industry growth ? locally and worldwide ? expanding and the aftermarket.
