Growth Trends in Automotive Industry in India1

The automotive industry is one of the fastest growing industries in India. The total sale of all types of vehicles in 2013-14 was 1,84,21,538. With the sale of more vehicles, there is more work in the terms of repair and maintenance. Most people entering the automotive industry can expect steady work, resulting from this growth of sales. The sales are further projected to grow in the next year by new launches and falling fuel prices. Hence, the demand for Auto Service Technicians will grow as the number of vehicles in operation increases.
