With the increasing growth in demand on back of rising income, expanding middle class and young population base, in addition to a large pool of skilled manpower and growing technology, has propelled India to be among the world's top five auto-producers. The automobile industry accounts for 22 per cent of the country's manufacturing gross domestic product (GDP). The auto sector is one of the biggest job creators, both directly and indirectly. It is estimated that every job created in an auto company leads to three to five indirect ancillary jobs.
India is expected to become a major automobile manufacturing hub and the third largest market for automobiles by 2020, according to a report published by Deloitte. India is currently the seventh-largest automobiles producer in the world with an average annual production of 17.5 million vehicles, and is on way to become the fourth largest automotive market by volume, by end of 2015. The Government of India encourages foreign investment in the automobile
sector and allows 100 per cent FDI under the automatic route to boost manufacturing sector.
Based on this, many multinational auto makers have started to invest heavily in various segments in the Industry in the last few years.
