Capital Goods Market in India

The Indian capital goods sector is characterised by a large width of products (almost all major capital goods are domestically manufactured) a legacy of the import substitution policy. Even nations with advanced capital goods sectors do not produce the entire range of capital goods, but instead focus on segments, or sub segments.

Since 2005, India has accounted for approximately 20 percent of global steam turbine revenues, and market experts expect that India and China together will account for 60 percent of the total global steam turbine revenue growth through 2020. The technologies and sources India adopts, as it adds this steam generation capacity, may make significant impact to global resource usage and will create plenty of job opportunities for Stationary Engine Drivers, Steam across the country.
