Capital Goods & Engineering Sector for the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017)

The industry growth during 11th Plan stood at 14%. The turnover during 2010-11 was 2,67,944 crore. There is a need for rapid growth of the sector, for which initiation of some national programmes has been proposed. These in turn will create additional demand. Steps to substitute imports by domestic production have also been proposed. This is expected to take the sector to 6,81,000 crores in 2016-17 at a CAGR of 16.8%.

Capital Goods Industry Strategic Importance

The capital goods industry contributes 12% to the total manufacturing activity which translates to about 1.8% of GDP. If the goal of achieving 9% growth in GDP during the 12th Five Year Plan has to be realized, then it is important for the manufacturing industry to grow at least by 11-13% per annum. This further requires that the Capital Goods sector, which is considered to be the core of manufacturing, should grow at around 17-19%.

The estimated current manpower employment across the six sub-sectors is approximately 1,300,000.The projected manpower requirement in 2017 across the six sub-sectors is approximately 2,085,000. The projected manpower requirement in 2022 across the six sub-sectors is approximately 3,941,000.The current employment of 1.4 million is expected to reach 2.8 million by the end of the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017). All these factors indicate good job growth for professionals such as CNC Operator ? Vertical Machining Centre in this sector.
