This has been driven by strong growth in the domestic market and increasing globalisation (including exports) of several Indian suppliers. Growth is further expected to accelerate to 8-10 per cent in FY19 due to pick up in global scenario. ** Turnover of the aftermarket has increased at a CAGR of 11.35 per cent from US$ 5.90 billion in FY14 to US$ 10.10 billion in FY19 and expected to reach US$ 32 billion by 2026.

Road Ahead

The rapidly globalising world is opening up newer avenues for the transportation industry, especially while it makes a shift towards electric, electronic and hybrid cars, which are deemed more efficient, safe and reliable modes of transportation. Over the next decade, this will lead to newer verticals and opportunities for auto-component manufacturers, who would need to adapt to the change via systematic research and development.

National Electric Mobility Mission Plan aims at achieving sales of 6-7 million units of hybrid and electric vehicles by 2020. As per Automobile Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA) forecasts, automobile component exports from India are expected to reach US$ 80 billion by 2026

The Indian auto-components industry is set to become the third largest in the world by 2025. Indian auto-component makers are well positioned to benefit from the globalisation of the sector as exports potential could be increased by up to US$ 30 billion by 2021E.
