Capital Goods & Manufacturing Sector in India

India's economy is expected to grow at 7.4 per cent in 2014-15 as per a Government forecast. Business conditions in the Indian manufacturing sector continued to improve in January 2015 fuelled by accelerated growth of output, marking the third straight month of expansion on the HSBC Services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI). The PMI rose to 52.4 points in January 2015 from 51.1 in December 2014. The composite PMI that combines both services and manufacturing sectors rose to 53.3 points in January 2015 from 52.9 in the previous month. India?s manufacturing sector could touch US$ 1 trillion by 2025, according to a report by McKinsey and Company.

There is potential for the sector to account for 25-30 per cent of the country?s GDP and create up to 90 million domestic jobs by 2025. This will give a boost to the FDI in the country and create many employment opportunities. This will certainly benefit skilled professionals like Gas-Compressor Operators.
