Overview of the Automotive Sector in India

The liberalization of the Indian industry saw significant growth in the Indian automotive industry. Today, the Indian automotive industry is a significant contributor to the Indian economy, contributing nearly 5% to the country?s GDP and about 17-18% to the kitty of indirect taxes to the government, while the investment outlay stood over 83,500 crore in 2008-09. With its wide penetration and strong influence on the country?s economic and industrial development, the auto sector is indeed one of the major drivers of our economy.

Employment Scenario of Automotive Sector

The automotive industry employs 200,000 persons in vehicle manufacturing, 250,000 in component companies and 10 million at different levels of the value chain ? both through backward and forward linkages. The expected growth in investments and output of India?s automotive sector during the next 10 years will create further employment opportunities in the country. An additional 25 million jobs are likely to be created by way of both direct and indirect employment in automotive companies and in other parts of the vehicle value chain such as servicing, repairs, sales and distribution chains.

Vision of AMP (2006-2016) in India

The vision of the Automobile Mission Plan (AMP 2006-2016) is ?To emerge as the destination of choice in the world for the design and manufacturing of automobiles and auto components with the output reaching a level of USD 145 billion accounting for more than 10% of the GDP and providing further additional employment to 25 million people by 2016.?

Future Trends of the Automotive Sector in India

By 2016, India would emerge as the world?s seventh largest car producer (as compared to the eleventh largest currently) and retain 4th largest position in the world truck manufacturing sector. Further, by 2016, the automotive sector would double its contribution to the country?s GDP from the current levels of 5% to 10%. The share of industry in GDP is expected to go up to around 35% from the current level of 24% by 2016.
