CAPITAL GOODSIt 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.Report of the Working Group on Capital Goods & Engineering Sector for the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017)The industry growth during 11th Plan stood is at 14%. The turnover during 2010-11 was Rs 2,67,944 crore. There is a need for rapid growth of the sector, for which it is proposed to initiate some national programmes. These in turn will create additional demand. It is also proposed to take steps to substitute imports by domestic production. This is expected to take the sector to Rs 6,81,000 crores in 2016-17 at a CAGR of 16.8%. The current employment of 1.4 million is proposed to be boosted through a series of recommendations to reach 2.8 million by the end of the 12th Five Year Plan.
