Capital Goods & Manufacturing Industry in India

According to CII, the Capital Goods industry is the very foundation of a strong, resilient and vibrant manufacturing sector. A robust manufacturing sector is an essential element of the Indian growth story. It is particularly important in ensuring employment for a large and growing working age population. Manufacturing, currently at 15% of GDP, needs to grow at a rate that is 2-3% higher than GDP, in order to make a significant contribution to our economy and towards employment generation. India?s manufacturing sector is on a high growth trajectory. According to the National Manufacturing Competitiveness Council (NMCC), the manufacturing sector is set to contribute 25% to the GDP by 2025 compared to the current share of 16%.

The manufacturing sector in India is undergoing a positive transformation, coming back into the reckoning with great opportunities driven by domestic demand as well as expansion into emerging markets with India as a hub for more companies. We are already witnessing robust growth in almost all sectors, while higher efficiencies are being sought. All this would mean more employment in primary as well as secondary and tertiary sectors related to manufacturing and a great career growth trajectory for Blower Operator.
