Manufacturing Sector in India

India is the third most sought-after manufacturing destination in the world and has the potential to export goods worth US$ 1 trillion by 2030.

Advantage India

Robust
Demand

* India’s manufacturing exports for FY22 reached an unprecedented US$ 418 billion, an overall growth of more than 40% compared to the US$ 290 billion from the previous year.

* By 2030, Indian middle class is expected to have the second-largest share in global consumption at 17%.

Increasing
Investment

* Propelled by growth in priority sectors and driven by favourable megatrends, India’s manufacturing sector has opened itself into new geographies and segments.

* Building on the competitive advantage of a skilled workforce and lower cost of labour, the manufacturing sector is also witnessing an increased inflow of capex and heightened M&A activity, leading to a surge in manufacturing output and resultant increased contribution to exports.

Policy
Support

* The Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme has been notified for Large Scale Electronics Manufacturing in India. The scheme aims to attract large investments in the mobile phone manufacturing and specified electronic components, including Assembly, Testing, Marking and Packaging (ATMP) units.

* Initiatives like Make in India, Digital India and Startup India have given the much-needed thrust to the Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) sector in India.

Competitive
Advantage

* The positive developments in the manufacturing sector, driven by production capacity expansion, government policy support, heightened M&A activity, and PE/VC-led investment, are creating a robust pipeline for the country’s sustained economic growth in the years to come.
