Capital Goods Market in India

The Indian capital goods sector is characterized by a largelist 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.

India is likely to add between 600 GW to 1,200 GW of additional new power generation capacity before 2050.The technologies and fuel sources India adopts, as it adds this electricity generation capacity, maysignificantly impactglobal resource usage and will create plenty of job opportunities for Turbine Operators, Hydel across the country.
