Thread moved from the Assembly Line (The "Assembly Line" Forum section) to the Indian Car Scene. Thanks for sharing!
The next 20 years belong to India! If you have spare cash, keep investing in the auto industry. Not just the car companies, but even manufacturers of 2-wheelers, tyres, spare parts etc.

Re: IBEF report on the Indian automotive industry for FY 2015-16
I think the numbers in this infographic is quite optimistic -
1) India's share in global car market to rise from 2.5% in 2015 to 8% in 2020.
2) Passenger vehicle production to triple between FY16 (3.4 million) and FY20E (10 million) @ 30% CAGR.
Where is the demand? Other than a handful of Maruti models, no manufacturer has a waiting list. Without demand, they will not produce so many cars.
I think what they have done is just added up numbers based on each company's 'future plans'. Eg:
- Honda / new factory / 250,000 per year production.
- GM /10 new models / 200,000 per year production.
However, a growth of 12% CAGR in sales over the next 10 years - this is believable.
Adding 1 + 1, if the sales estimate for year 2026 is only 9.6 million, there is no way car manufacturers will produce 10 million cars in Year 2020.
Unless, we are talking about some kind of major export boom.
