India strategic market profile

India strategic market profile : Although India has been much discussed in recent years, and has been the recipient of major foreign investment in its automotive industry, it has in many ways not received the attention of the world’s other major developing country, China – but this is about to change.

With the world’s second largest and fastest-growing population, there is no denying India’s potential in both economic and population terms and the effect it will have on the auto industry in the years to come. The country is already off to a good start, with a well-developed components industry and a production level of one million four-wheeled vehicles a year, plus a further five million two- and three-wheelers. India also has substantial strength in mass production techniques and is particularly well served in the fields of research and development and software design. Therefore, as always, the question is when will expansion occur and to what level?

The implications, market drivers and scope of a future massive Indian vehicle market are covered in the India Strategic Market Profile, a brand-new forecast of Indian automotive and related activity to 2020. Based on Max Pemberton's unique relational long-term forecasting model, India strategic market profile forecasts car and CV sales, demographics, materials usage, auto industry employment, and explains their inter-relation with detailed analysis.

    The Environmental Challenge To 2020

    It is sometimes said that the scrapping and recycling of motor vehicles will become the next big industry. There are also many who say that it is already a big industry as manufacturers are spending large amounts of money in preparing their products for increased levels of recycling.

    There is a growing acknowledgement that vehicle scrappage and recycling is a pressing global problem that must be tackled on a world scale, as 1.6 billion tonnes of scrap materials will need to be processed over the twenty-year period from 2001 to 2020 inclusive.

    This special research report is a determined attempt to put some numbers onto the size of the challenge, so that it can better be defined and solutions achieved. The report looks at the future growth of the motor industry - including the dramatic rise in activity in the developing world - up to 2020. It takes into account vehicle sales volumes and average vehicle weights, and builds into the equations assumptions as to how vehicle weights reduce year on year as the fight for an energy efficient, less polluting and environmentally friendly motor vehicle moves to the top of the agenda.

    Asian Supplier Report

    The rapid growth in vehicle assembly in many parts of Asia, most notably China and South Korea, is focusing increasing attention on the supplier base in the region. Local suppliers are becoming more prominent as OEMs seek to raise local content levels, and major international suppliers are also being lured to invest in a region outside their traditional, mature market areas.

    A number of development strategies have already evolved. Joint ventures have become the preferred route for many local and international suppliers. The former gain swift access to partners' product and manufacturing technology, as well as insight into best practice in other key areas. The latter get valuable insights into local business practices and culture and enhanced access to difficult-to-penetrate markets

    North American Supplier Business

    The North American supplier industry is facing its deepest crisis in its history. The steep decline in production volumes at the big 2 – Ford and GM- and their growing losses have raised pressures on the supply base for restructuring and cost-cutting, threatening the survival of the traditional North American suppliers.

    On the other hand suppliers with strong technologies and a diversified customer base or incoming new component companies supplying the fast-growing Asian transplants are seeing demand growing rapidly.

    Truck Industry

    The truck industry accounts for only about 10% of the turnover of the global automotive business, but the concentrated structure of the sector and the swings in volumes that it experiences, make it a key business for many of the companies involved in it. With its demands for quality, reliability, flexibility and price sensitivity, the truck market takes many of the pressures in the automotive component supply business to higher levels. But for successful companies it can also be a very rewarding sector, with a substantial aftermarket business and relatively stable long-term relationships.

    The truck industry is also interesting because it is the leading edge of the automotive sector in its move into emerging markets, and has for many years been more international at the product level than much of the car industry.

    China - World's Third largest Automaker within two years

    China is expected to become one of the world's top three largest automakers by 2010.

    China will make the automobile industry a pillar of the national economy in the coming six years, according to a blueprint for national automobile development in China's 11th Five-Year Plan period ( 2006-2010 ).

    In the past 5 years, China’s automotive industry has seen a phenomenal growth. This growth was expected from a country whose economy has been growing steadily since the last 15 years and who has a vast base of consumers. The major focus is to look into the dynamics that is shaping up the Chinese automotive industry and then to assess what holds for its players in the near future. Research has observed that China’s entry into the World Trade Organization ( WTO ) agreement in the year 2001 gave a major thrust to its automotive industry. The industry, which was growing at the rate of around 12% prior to the signing of the agreement, peaked to levels of around 40% within 2 years. Research work suggests that the unpredictability of the Chinese consumer is a major concern for the manufacturers. The Chinese customer is not known for brand loyalty and the falling prices of the products have further added to their unpredictability.

    The research analysts have found that the passenger car and the automotive component segments will be the major contributors in the future growth of the industry. Domestic producers are steadily building an export market for the commercial vehicles and it is likely to grow in future.

    Indian Automobile Sales to reach 13.8 billion by 2010

    In recent years we have seen increasing number of global players entering Indian market by way of Joint ventures, collaborations or wholly owned subsidiary. Sudden interest of major global players has made Indian auto industry very competitive as India provides twin benefit of ready market and Low cost manufacturing base for them.

    Indian Automobile sector is high on growth trajectory. Based on estimates, the total sales (domestic + exports) for FY06 will touch 10 million marks of which Commercial Vehicle Segment will contribute maximum. According to auto industry experts Indian Automobile sales will grow at a CAGR of 9.5% to 13008 million by 2010. To tap this large opportunity, Indian Automobile companies and global automotive giants have announced huge expansion plans and are seeking answers for some critical questions like- How do different automobile companies compare with each other?- What is driving the demand for automobile industry?- What is the Government policy initiatives and how they impact your business?- What are the emerging trends in the Automobile industry?- How are the different competitive forces likely to behave in short to medium term and their impact on your business?
