Panel Discussion on "Make in India - Manufacturing Capital for Emerging Markets"
By 2026, India is expected to be the third largest automotive market by volume in the world. Manufacturing will be a key economic driver in raising the share of manufacturing in India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from the current levels of 15% to 25% by 2025. The emergence of large automotive clusters in the country: Delhi-Gurgaon-Faridabad in the north, Mumbai-Pune-Nashik-Aurangabad in the west, Chennai- Bengaluru-Hosur in the south and Jamshedpur-Kolkata in the east. Contribution of Auto Component Industry in India’s GDP will account to as much as 5% to 7% by 2026. The growth of global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) sourcing from India and the increased indigenisation of global OEMs is turning the country into a preferred designing and manufacturing base. The Indian automotive sector has the potential to generate up to US$ 300 billion in annual revenue by 2026, create 65 million additional jobs and contribute over 12 per cent to India’s Gross Domestic Product. According to Make in India project report, India is about leapfrog into BS-VI auto-fuels all over the country w.e.f. April 1, 2020, which would facilitate major investment in refinery upgradation, auto industry, related manufacturing and services sector.
