It has been estimated that India's capital goods market can grow from $71.7 billion in 2011-12 to $153.3 billion by 2016-17, a compounded annual growth rate of 16%. Also, capital goods, infrastructure and power companies are likely to benefit from policies that the new government (after the 2014 general elections) pursues to increase economic growth. Also, the sector will gain from the special economic zones the government has sanctioned for the industry.India's share of global capital goods exports is low (0.1-0.6%). There is a huge potential for growth here. Infrastructure and capital goods indices as well as select stocks have rallied sharply of late, partly on expectations that the NDA will be able to form a government at the Centre next year. On this basis, we see big reforms and changes in the capital expenditure cycle over the next 12-18 months.
