Capital Goods and Manufacturing Industry in India

The capital goods and manufacturing industry in India is a strong, resilient and vibrant sector. A robust manufacturing sector is an essential element of the Indian growth story. It is particularly important in ensuring employment for a large and growing working age population. Manufacturing, which is currently 15% of the GDP, needs to become 2-3% higher than the GDP, in order to make a significant contribution to our economy in terms of employment generation.

In 2011-12 the size of the capital goods industry was estimated to be 500,000 crore, domestic demand was valued at 2,35,000 crore and exports were valued at 2,65,000 crore.

The Government of India has announced a national manufacturing policy with the objective of enhancing the share of manufacturing in GDP by 25% within a decade, thereby creating 100 million jobs. It seeks to empower the rural youth by imparting all the necessary skill sets to make them employed. So, this sector will have a lot of demand for a Button Maker in the present as well as in the future.
