Overview of Manufacturing Sector in India

According to a report by McKinsey and Company, India?s manufacturing sector could touch US$ 1 trillion by 2025. 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.

The Government of India has taken several initiatives to promote a healthy environment for the growth of manufacturing sector in the country.

The government has an ambitious plan to locally manufacture as many as 181 products India currently imports at a cost of at least US$ 18.1 billion. The government is expected to come up with a separate set of labour laws governing the micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) sector which forms the backbone of the manufacturing sector. Once implemented, the new labour laws will provide the ease to do business in India and will also help effectively manage labour unrest and industrial strife and lead to new entrepreneurs entering the manufacturing sector.
